By now you have enjoyed your cocktails and should be flying over our great country on route to the "Happiest Place in the World". What amazing plans you have lined up and I can't wait to hear some of your wonderful ideas Eileen...I am sure the kids are in for a royal treat. Hope Zack has a great birthday (and your dad as well).

Are you one of those people who can take delight in the happiness of others -- who doesn't resent when others have adventures you don't have?

Usually, that's the "my cup's half-full" camp I firmly fall into.

.
.
.
.
Usually...

.
.
.
.

Not this morning....
.
.
.
You wanna know why?
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

Because the person who was supposed to be joined to me in my "my-friends-are-together-without-me" misery, decided to get all sneaky...


...decided to do something wonderful....


...decided to make my life a living hell...

.
.
.
.
.
.




Because the people I love most in the world (yeah, yeah... other than my husband and kid) are playing together in Florida.





It's not the "oh, well... Jill and Karen are together, but at least Sharon and I are in misery together -- until I get to be there on Wednesday and Sharon is alone in her misery."

Yeah... that's what I was thinking my feelings would be -- even the very honest admission that I knew I'd be feeling all superior over ShaSha this coming Wednesday. (Just keepin' it real, for y'all.)



Buuuuut nooooooo....



Sharon has to go and be all sneaky and junk and plan for two months to suprise the other ladies.... and leave me out of it totally!

Sheesh.




And to make matters worse, they took pictures and sent them to me. This is TORTURE!



They're all like:


And I'm all like:



Aaaaack!

I'm so ticked I could spit nails right now -- and I hope Sharon brought along her laptop so she can FEEEEEEEEL my ticked-off-ness right now!



Eileen

PS - I'm not really angry (yes, I am!)

PPS - as soon as I pull out these nails I spat into the drywall, I'll come back and upload today's special event card from Karen.

Sneaky Eileen...they are definitely sneaky and then too send pictures as well...

But just think of it this way Sharon just wanted to make sure she was there to surprise you when you make your entrance on Wendesday....she did not have the heart not to see your big smile when you got off that DME bus

Ok, I know what you are thinking she could have taken an earlier plane on Wendesday but she wouldn't have had time to prepare....I definitely see this as their way of welcoming you with open arms (heck someone had to prepare WDW for Eileen's arrival)

Ohhhhhhhh... no.... Sharon will NOT be there on Wednesday. The little stinker is flying back tomorrow night (just came in late last night.)

Then, she'll be at work on Wednesday when I arrive and won't return to Disney until her "planned" arrival on Friday.

Harrrrrumph!

I ask ya, who comes to Disney World for the weeeeeeeekend, knowing they have another trip for the very next weekend.

Well that just changes it all Eileen...no I can think of no more excuses. They were just plain sneaky and deserve whatever you think up as punishment

Anway... they're probably having their lunch at the Sci Fi right now. (Not that I'm jealous or anything.)

And Karen's probably handed out the little surprise bags by now. (Not that I'm jealous of anything.)

And the kids have probably squealed in delight at their little space alien toys and their card "from Mickey." (Not that I'm jealous or anything.)

Here's the card:



Each day has its own theme and its own present and its own card. Karen's really outdown herself to make magic for the kiddies. "Mickey" will re-fill their gift bag each day with a little something-something (and a card) that will clue them in to their adventure that day. It's really adorable and I'll be posting the card for you all to see each day, leading up to the day I leave for the adventure myself.

Eileen

PS - oh yes I am jealous!

Thank you so much for putting that jealousy aside and sharing your handiwork with us - I hope the other members of the CLQ realise how virtuous you're being and without any complaining at all (well, they won't be able to read the teeny-tiny jealous comments after a FAB or three).
