Hi, everyone! I'm not sure how many people will remember me, though I am friends on FB with quite a few people I met through PP. Long story short, I worked (past tense) for someone who had a "beef" with PP's rules about travel agents. She discouraged using the site, so I got out of the practice.
To put it in perspective, my daughter had just turned 12 when I stopped visiting. She just graduated high school and turned 18 last week! So, I'll bring you all up to speed on my life, in case you're interested:
- DH is still at his job and travels for work at least 1 week a month. His life has not changed much since last I posted.
- Me - I'm still a SAHM. After I stopped travel planning, I did not look for other at-home jobs. I serve on the board of directors of my kids' swim team, which takes up a fair bit of time. It brings its fair share of drama (DRAMA! ) but I love being involved in helping shape the team.
- DD is officially an adult. She graduated with Advanced Honors and a math & science magnet degree. She was a National Merit Finalist and will be attending UNR (Reno, NV) in the fall for (basically) free. She plans to become a doctor. She has swum competitively for half her life (starting at 9) and will compete in her last meet next month.
- DS has gone over the deep end and back since I last posted! OK, that seems rather dramatic. But he's was this cute charmer who could get away with anything back then. He then became an awkward preteen whose grades slipped while he matured a bit more. Now, he's heading into a magnet high school in the fall. He has swum competitively since he was 7 and this past year, he has done some amazing things in that area. We have a meet at the end of the month and I'm excited to see where he lands (ha! get it...land, not water...).
So, that's what's going on around here. We've only visited WDW once since my last trip here in 2012, going to WDW and Universal in 2016. We also went on an Alaskan cruise in 2014, but not on Disney. 2017 didn't include a vacation since we had a lot of colleges to visit for DD and this summer, DD will be heading to college during our break from swim (neither kids likes missing swim practice for vacations). But we do have a Mexican Riviera cruise scheduled over New Year's, so we're getting excited about that!
