I didn't realize that I haven't been here since last fall. There have been a LOT of things going on at home that required my attention and time slipped away. My husband is back in school (in addition to work), I'm back in school (plus working PT & homeschooling) and we've had some staff issues at the gym that have directly affected Kait - who then broke her foot again. On top of that the contract that Chris is working for has been up for rebid and they keep pushing back the date we should know something.... Oh and I quit doing the TA thing with the company I was with because they had communication and payment issues, so while I miss it terribly, I am less stressed in not having to deal with them. :-)

On the upside to all that drama, the trip that I had originally thought would happen in 2012 or 2013 may actually happen this summer. It looked like we were going to be able to afford the 14 day transatlantic home from Barcelona in Sept. Until I priced out flights to Barcelona!!! The cruise is about 8500 - the flight for all 5 of us to Spain is just over 5000. *sigh*

Wow - you sound busy!

We were in WDW for one day at the end of last August, and MK was EMPTY. No lines at all. Even on headliners. So maybe you'll have good luck too.

I checked on Universal. They used to have a ticket that was $99 unlimited access to both parks for 7 days. I don't see that anymore. Bummer. But it is cheaper to purchase tickets online (plus you don't have to wait in line).

I hope your trip comes together. And everything else you have going on!

Hey Sonya! I'm sorry to hear you are not doing the TA thing anymore .... because you are an excellent TA! Hopefully you are back in the bizz before I need to plan our next WDW trip! HAve you looked at DU? I hear that most of their agents work from home. Maybe that is something you might be interested in? I'm dealing with SWV right now for our DCL cruise. If you need "references" for any future TA jobs .... let us know!
