"There's a great big beautiful tomorrow..." A week in review and weekend run down

I'll admit, I've been a bit of a worry wart lately. I've got lots of irons on the fire lately, so I'm seeing where this journey takes me next. I'm excited to see how some things unfold, and scared to see how others will, but I've always believed there is a greater purpose behind everything and that, in the end "everything will work out".

This week, I have barely spent a single night at home. Yes, that's something that needs to change next week, but the highlights of my week were spending some time eating dinner at Milton's with my bio-dad on Tuesday. We don't often get to spend time together, so that was great!

Other great things I found out this week:

My airfare to the Disneyworld vacation in December with Sista' Girl is taken care of due to my dad's frequent flier miles. YEAH! I was really sweating being able to afford the trip, but now, since all I'll be shouldering is hotel, souveniers, and the 1 sit down meal a day, I'm getting more and more excited to go and celebrate all the changes in our lives, and all the new things to come next year. So that means by next week, I'll most likely be scheduling my airfare and we'll be going w/ a hotel package. It's getting closer....

It also looks like I will definately have enough PTO to pull off this vacation - my first full week away from work since 2005! (Being sick and having shingles don't count as "vacation time".)

The Wild Animal Park and the Zoo have nighttime hours this summer! I hoped they would stay open late, but with economy being what it is, one never knows. Since I have a pass that allows me to get into both, I'll be able to check out the animals after dark. Always fun!

The DisUnplugged podcast read my e-mail during one of their shows (which is always a thrill) and answered my tough question! It was definately good news too, but I'll post that on my Disney blog someday before the trip in December. They also made fun of my hometown's name (Escondido). It is pretty fun to say, so I can't blame 'em!

Sistah' Girl is coming over next weekend to see Wicked with me and some co-workers! I may also have been able to sell all of my tickets to the show, and made enough dough to cover a picnic in the park before. Score!

So what does this weekend have in store? Hang on to your hats!

The Friends of the Magic meet is starting up in Disneyland today! While I don't think I'll be able to make it up there tonight like I want to, I really want to make it up there to have lunch with the woman who modeled for Tinkerbell tomorrow! This meet sounds great and I can't wait to be a part of it. Sunday, I'll be going up with Gerber Family - which is pretty darn cool too. It's been over a month since we've been together, and I just adore Sunday mornings in the parks.

Tonight I'm hoping to meet up with my parents for dinner and to discuss their most recent adventure. They just got back from a trip to Africa! I'm finally over my jealousy and just excited to see all the photos (my mom is really into photography lately), and hear all about the trip. I'm kinda hoping I can talk them into watching Rattatoullie with me on their HD screen, but we'll see. Since they were gone for about 2 weeks, they'll need

Saturday night I will also be checking out a new church with Gerber Family, and somewhere in the middle of all this I need to take care of business (get my car in to get a tired repaired, get new front brakes put on it, and it could really use another wash, complete housework, etc).

So that's the gist of it! Now back to work for me!
