OOH, I've been away a while....bein' sick. Ugh. Feelin' better....I just booked my birthday vacation....♫♫I'm going to Disneyland!!!♫♫ Going to stay at Disney's Grand Californian this year because of all the ongoing construction at the Disneyland Hotel. View room of Downtown Disney, three magical days in both parks.....eatin' and drinkin' and carryin' on....hey, this is DISNEYLAND, diet rules do not apply! (It's only three days...and I can't get Disney-caliber food like that at home....) YIPPEE!!!! ZIP A DEE DOO DAH!!!♫♫♫ Space Mountain and Soarin' Over California and World Of Color and Peter Pan and the Haunted Mansion....THIS CHAMBER HAS NO WINDOWS....AND NO DOORS.....The Enchanted Tiki Room and pineapple whips, ♫♫it's a small world,♫♫after all...♫♫decadent room service by cast members who even make the food magical....the Hollywood Tower of Terror...checking out all the ongoing construction of DCA, the Voyage of the Little Mermaid (will it be open???????) Shopping, shopping, shopping.... And of course, showing off my Disneyland tattoos....the oohs and ahs of the cast members and guests, many want to photograph me (sure, just buy me a churro!)
I'm a little excited. And it's all only 88 days, 1 hour, 41 minutes and 55 seconds away............
I lost weight while I was sick. I'm down to 151! I want to fit into my cute clothes for Disneyland, great motivation to stay on track!
I have to go and fight with the U.S. Postal Service today. I mailed three large Priority Mail packages to Decatur Alabama on December16....the packages never arrived. The scrapbook album of my son's childhood was in those boxes....I've worked on it for years...now that he is married I thought it appropriate to send it to him along with the newly-scrapped pages of his wedding...and now it's lost. My heart is broken. I paid the U.S. Postal Service $64.90 to mail those three packages...they didn't even receive one. When you spend that kind of money for Priority service you should expect they get delivered, right? The snow storms are over...now I have to go and pick a fight with the U.S. Postal Authorities. Pray for me.
