Thursday Thoughts

24 days until we leave for Disneyland! Our big vacation this year. It will be hot. It will be crowded. But dammit, we are going to have fun! Delaney is five and Charlotte will be turning four and we can no longer put off their childhood right to stand in line after line at the happiest place on earth.

  • I need to get serious (again) on my weight loss plan. I did pretty good in May, okay in June...but now I need to step it up again. I'd like to lose another 5 to 10 pounds before Disney - gotta look good for my main man Donald Duck (I like him cuz he's grumpy, Mickey is just to perky for my taste). So I guess I better put all that wine I just bought in my cellar (uh, little refrigerator), stick to my exercise schedule, and update my goals.

  • My foot hurts. It was hurting pretty bad Monday and Tuesday so I have been laying off the running. My foot feels much better today, just a twinge, so I think I'm going to try a light run today. Hope I don't aggravate it again.

  • OK, tmi ,but I either have IBS or I am lactose is time for me to deal with this properly cuz it just ain't fun. I'm going to try cutting out dairy first to see if that helps at all. I don't eat much dairy anyway (mostly just a limited amount of cheese and ice cream), so it shouldn't be that hard.

  • I am going to start researching switching our house over to solar. Our energy costs have gone through the roof the last year, and I can't figure out why since our lifestyle hasn't really changed. Anyway, I'm going to check into it - we'll see, it may just be too expensive to be worth it. I like the idea of being a little more self-sufficient and greener like Kermie though.

  • My boss left yesterday for a month long vacation to Ireland and Switzerland (where he owns his own Chalet - disgustingly rich) - whew! Now I have a month of being able to get caught up at a nice steady pace instead of frantically trying to get 3 projects done at the same time, that he wanted last week. I needed this vacation!

I am so jealous of all you guys going to Disney! Seems like everyone is going. I want to go!! Cam is still a little on the young side for us to want to deal with her there and in a hotel :-X I wish she'd grow up already :P man I haven't been there in years!

I'm not jealous of Disney.....I was of Napa though!!

Energy costs over here have gone mental. Trouble is, solar here is expensive and not always reliable for obvious reasons. There is also wind turbines but they depend upon the situation of your house etc

Good luck and well done for going green etc..

I'm thinking about a giant hamster wheen for the dogs to power some sort of could use the kids perhaps?? About time they made themselves useful....

Good luck with the diet and exclusions. If you crack it you will be made up.

Oh my Disney. Not ready for that yet. It breaks my heart when they don't remember cool stuff we've done, but I guess that is just gonna happen.
