Off to Neverland

Hard to believe that it's only been two months since my last trip to WDW and I'm heading back down again so soon. In fact we leave this afternoon for nearly a ful week. Our daughter's school choir is attending a Disney Music workshop at Saratoga and then on Tuesday they perform at Downtown Disney. Should be a fun and quite busy trip. Staying at Animal Kingdom for the first time on this trip. No car rental. Just Disney buses and spring break crowds. Ahh such is the life...

Training has been nill this past week. It's all on me but here is a partial excuse. (and I hate to make excuses) My office hours have been switched up and now every four weeks instead of working 1pm-10pm I go into the office at 10am-7pm and then have to carry the phones overnight. So in short the company is taking three more hours out of my day. So if I get up at 8am there is no time to workout, shower and get to the office. I know, I know, I can here the comments now. Get up earlier. Well yes I could work on that. My trouble there is I'm a freaking night owl and have always had a difficult time getting myself in bed before 12-1am. I've also caught myself stress eating again. I'm looking forward to the structure of this Disney trip. I always do very well with a set number of meals and if we have a snack its just one and done. Registration for DAM sould be open when I return. Now THAT, will be some motivation.

In other news I'm still working on documenting my family tree. A few months ago my dad found some additional loose photos that he gave to me. Evidently others in my family history were fans of Mickey and Minnie as evidence in this picture of a home curio cabinet.

Now I can't really be certain who this belonged to. My best guess is that Mickey and Minnie belonged to my great grandparents Augustus and Dora Robbins.

My only clue is that my grandfather indexed all of his photos and this picture is in the same group.

It would be fun if I could confirm this somehow but I most likely never will.

Speaking of antiques here are a few pics of some I took during my last trip to the Brass Armadillo.

In this last picture I'm not sure I like the way BIG BOY is looking at Minnie.

Have a good week everyone!

Well, it's good to know that I'm not the only one that struggles with life and work and everything in between.

You'll get your head back on right and registering for Dam to Dam will certainly be a good motivational tool.

I hope you have a great time at WDW. I am sure it's going to be an amazing trip with lots of fun experiences.

I totally understand about the night owl thing. I have always been a night owl too and have slipped back in to that routine and have trouble getting up in the mornings to do any working out.
