Home Sweet Home

Woke up in Warm Florida and flew home to crazy cold Texas!! The flight was good, slept a few minutes and then watched the movie. It was the new Fame movie that I wanted to see. It was ok, but I'm really glad I didn't pay to see it.

Went to get hay when we got home, they still don't have round bales for some reason so we had to get more square bales. John broke one open by accident when we was unloading it so he just threw it out to the horses. They should be pretty warm tonight since between the two of them they have had a bale and a half of hay today!!

Jan 29.....sad last day

Hollywood Studios today...I hate the last day at Disney. There's never enough time....

Ran to get the Toy Story Mania Fast Passes while mom and Betty went on Rock and Roll Roller Coaster. Then on to Tower of Terror. We had to switch elevators because the first one wasn't working or something. Then we went back on the Roller coaster before there was a line. Then I think we went on The Great Movie Ride, I know some people think it's boring, but I like it! I kicked butt on Toy Story Mania!!! 111800!!! Best score ever I think! Saw the Beauty and the Beast show...I hope they never get rid of it, I love it so much. Ate lunch at Starring Rolls, had a pretty yummy ham sandwich. Did the Muppets, Star Tours and Tower of Terror one more time before we headed out.

I left mom and Betty at the Townhouse and headed into the MK to soak up the atmosphere and say goodbye to the castle. Rode Haunted Mansion and Winnie the Pooh. I had a Fast Pass for Peter Pan, but it broke down which made me sad....

Jan 28 Animal Kingdom

I freaking love Animal Kingdom....I mean I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! It was a great day, park wasn't crowded and I wasn't too stressed about "staying on schedule". We started off the day by going on Everest twice in a row.....I wish I could start every day off like that!!! Then over to Dinosaur where I met a nice lady from the! I actually got brave after that and went on Primeval Hurl...I mean Whirl! I didn't feel too bad afterwards thankfully. Bugs Life, Pizzafari, Safari, and of course the TIGERS!!! Seriously I could just watch them all day long! 2 more rides on Everast and one more on the Safari and we were out of there.

The plan for dinner was spaghetti. I ran to the store at about 4 for chips and salsa...then 2 hours later when I was going to make dinner I realized that we had left the spaghetti sauce at Walmart!!! Grr...back to the grocery store for sauce. Dinner was good when I finally got it!!

Jan 27 DTD and Epcot

Wednesday was a sleep in day, but I didn't sleep very long. We had a nice quiet morning and then headed out to DTD. I really wanted Earl of Sandwich again, but we ended up going to Fulton's (which I have always wanted to try). I got a crab cake sandwich that I really wasn't crazy about, but I also got some Crab and Lobster Bisque that was AMAZING!! It was like Soup Nazi good and I would stand in line for this soup for sure!!! Then we went over to the World of Disney. I found Alyssa her Stitch pens and that's all I got. Betty went hog wild buying stuff for Macey! Went to Goofy's candy shop too for some way too fattening treats!!

Then we headed over to Epcot for another trip around the world. It was more crowded than it was on Sunday and Monday, but it still wasn't bad. We just ate, shopped and also went in to see the movie in the Canadian pavillion. I saw Aurora in France!! She was awesome, not sure why I love her so much but I do!! We also ran into some really nice Buckeye fans from Cincinnati while we were sitting in Germany.

26 Jan -Magic Kingdom Marathon

Did the Magic Kingdom all day!! Rope Drop to Fireworks!! The crowds were non existent and although we got Fast Passes, we really didn't need them. Went to lunch at the Grand Floridian Cafe which was really nice! Had two margaritas which were way yummy and then took a nap in a hammock on the beach!!

We were pretty tired by the time the fireworks came on (mostly Betty and mom, I was ok) but I really wanted to stay and watch them!

25 Jan 09 Epcot

Had planned on waking up early and heading to Epcot, but it was pouring rain when we woke up so we slept in and headed out around 11. Got a FP for Soarin and then headed to the World Showcase starting at Mexico. Went back around 1 to get a Test Track FP. Left mom and Betty drinking in Germany and relaxing by the water! Had a nice day with beautiful weather and left the park around 6-7ish and headed back.

Got back to the townhouse and drank about a half a bottle of wine and woke up the next morning with a killer headache thanks to the wine!!

Sunday, January 24, 2010


Omg...what a long day!! Woke up at 3:40 to get ready to go to the airport. First the laptop wouldn't fit in the bag, then there was a train stopped on the tracks! Went the long way because the train wasn't moving and got to the airport with time to spare of course.

Got the rent a car then waited for mom and Betty. Had Earl of Sandwich for lunch...YUMMY!! Went to Shades of Green for tickets then on to the condo to rest.

Went to Epcot and it wasn't crowded at all. Did Soarin, Test Track, Figment and Nemo and going back tomorrow to do it all again!!!

Then we hit Walmart for supplies and now it's time for bed...............

long Saturday Jan 23

Long day spent trying to pack...not productive at all....

Jan 21-Ian Kinsler

Poor Autumn

Came home from work and didn't see Autumn and she's not usually one of the cats that hide so I was a little worried. Looked a few places for her and then heard this little meow from the dresser!! Poor baby was shut in John's sock drawer!!! At least it was full of clean socks!!!


Woo hoo!! New camera battery and my memory card came in the mail today!!

Monday, January 18, 2010

Stupid memory card

Something is majorly wrong with my memory card. Good thing I have another one on order that will be here on Wednesday. Because Disney without pictures would be unacceptable!!

Lazy morning and computer....but how different is that from every other day? I really need to start doing stuff in the morning again and not just sit on my hiney!!

Took Alyssa back to Austin last night in record time!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Muddy muddy...

Ivan is a mess.....we cleaned him off and then Allison rode him...then he rolled again and he looks like this again!!

Now we are heading off to take Alyssa back to Austin....long long yucky drive...

No pic Saturday

Loser day again in the picture taking dept, but it was a good day overall!! Went shopping with the family and bought some SIZE 6 JEANS!!! Woo hoo!!!

Went to work with John which was a little boring, but we weren't there long...

Friday, January 15, 2010

New toy day!!

Went to Petsmart after work and bought the dogs some new toys!!!

Kacie has torn it apart already!!

Jan 13

No picture yesterday. Went to the eye doctor in the morning and then to work and then a times!

Just chilling this morning watching tv and drinking coffee. I need to get moving soon and then head to Walmart to see about getting some new glasses. I found some cute Coach glasses yesterday, but maybe I can find some cheaper ones at Walmart that look about the same!

But for's just me and Timmy watching tv!

Jan 11 Big Fat Olive

I just can't get over how FAT this cat is now!! I know I know...I'm sure I've mentioned that she came to us as a 5 pound stray, but unless you saw and felt the bag of bones yourself you really can't imagine how skinny she really was. She was thisclose to dying of starvation and now she can barely fit through the door!! We are rationing her food now because the little piggy will eat all day....(unless you try to change up her food, who knew that a once starved cat would become so picky!!)

Jan 9-10

Sorry no pictures for those two days thanks to the food poisoning I got at the hockey game Friday night.

Seriously I thought I was dying and after the misery and pain I was in at the time, death would have been a welcome sight....

Jan 8-Hockey game

Went to a Brahams game thanks to free tickets from Nolan's Dad!! Game was fun, but afterward I got sick...I think it was food poisoning thanks to the hot dog I had at the game...

Jan 7

Wow....what a loser pics from Monday-Wednesday!! It's FREEZING here....

Sunday, January 3, 2010

Took the tree down...

exciting day....commissary and then I took the tree's too cold outside to want to do anything else....

Jan 2

Woke up this morning to see a coyote running through the back pasture, then we went to Toyota again to pick up the new cars...and it looks like we have to go BACK on Tuesday to sign some more papers.

Then the girls went to the House of Blues to see Nick Jonas and John and I went to the Olive Garden and then Barnes and Nobles while we waited...

Allison did go out and ride for a bit since the weather wasn't too bad...but mostly it's been a football day!
