Wink I am TOTALLY out of my mind! (as I laugh)

I had to say that as my title...because it is true!

This past Saturday at dinner the idea just came to me and I explained to my son- and I asked him if he thought I was crazy. He replied, "No" (smart boy)!

I am scheduled to go to Disney (AGAIN) next month!!!!
August..... next month! LOL I am scheduled to leave Friday, August 10th to Tuesday,August 14th.

I am actually going to meet up with CinderAbby and her Family! Yes, she agreed and she thinks this is a Crazy idea too.... but she agreed to it so she must be crazy too.... I was able to meet her on my 1st solo trip back in August 2013..... its time to do a Reunion!

So all day yesterday starting at 10:30am I called Disney, booked a room at All Star Music, bought 2 one-day park tickets, RT airfare thru AA (so much cheaper than SWA), and reserved parking at the airport lot. All I need to do is to save a few dollars for meals and a tad bit of shopping. (I forgot to get something for my oldest). I actually have some extra from my May trip.... that was 3 months ago!

So surreal....... and the fact I am leaving for this Saturday to go to Virginia to visit my sister and her family! I am Excited about seeing her kids! One trip at a time....Please! lol

And I am NOT planning to tell my family because I know what negative words I will get since I am unemployed.... I will tell them AFTER! Besides the only person that needs to know is my son- since he will be here at the house. It will be his mini-Vacation x 2 too! . He may be working on the weekends anyway.

So...now that I have come cleaned...and explained my Craziness!

I know it be HOT & Humid- but looking into those cooling towels. Hoping to use the AC as much as possible, I scheduled a dinner on my arrival day (CinderAbby & family will be at a park that day), 3 meals with them which I am REALLY looking forward too, and add some rides & shows- should be an Excellent mini-vacation time. Plus the fact I need to Thank CinderAbby & her family in letting me crash on her vacation....

So.... after knowing all these plans.... am I crazy??? LOL

I don't think you're crazy at all. If it's do-able, then why the heck not?

First sign of craziness Kate - you repeat yourself. (I know - I do it too )

Have I or have I not said that this is going to be an Incredible Summer? IIRC, I have and this is just going to add to it. I'm looking forward to seeing you again and spending more time with you.

Life is short, Kate. Do what makes you happy, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. That’s what I say!

Congratulations on your next trip!

I'm looking forward to seeing you, too, Kate! Had no idea this was such a short-notice trip when I got your message.


Lumieregirl, if I'm in Florida then, I'd love to try again to meet up! (We missed each other last year, didn't we?)

You're not crazy! If you can go, and you want to go, then GO! There are no guarantees in life. Enjoy it while you can.

If you are crazy, you have LOTS of company! We have visited WDW this year in February, July (returned home last Friday) and are going again in October. I am never happier than when I have a Disney Trip planned!
