I miss Disney. Some people miss home or people or whatnot but I MISS Disney. I want to go back so bad. We are going to visit Sister in Nashville and Robs family in upstate New York in July. No Disney this year. You wanna know the worst part? This was MY idea! I don't think I want to deal with bottles, formula, and baby food while on vacation. It just doesn't sound fun. So I said let's just go see your family! Yeah, I am going to have to deal with all that stuff anyway, should have done it in Disney. LOL...I keep looking at stuff and trying to plan. The other day I was actually craving Tusker House breakfast. It is a tradition in our family to eat at Donald's Breakfast Safari at Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. This breakfast buffet has your typical breakfast fare and some African specialties thrown in. I don't particularly care for buffets but love this one. The food is yummy and even better~ They have Jungle Juice. Jungle Juice is something like Mango Guava Passionfruit. I think that is the combination. All I know is I love the stuff! Another great point is that they have characters! Donald, Goofy, Daisy and Mickey were who we met last May, though characters can and will change. Donald is the only one guaranteed.
Disney has a few deals going on right now! One is 15-30% off room rates at Disney May 2nd to August 14th. If you are interested in going to Disney, remember you know a travel agent! contact me at

It has been relatively busy around here. School is coming to an end. We have an exam almost every week starting next week until the middle of May and then Zach is done with school for the summer. Now we just have to come up with some fun summer projects to do. I saw something about making a solar oven using foil so we do some research on solar energy and then build one to see if we can get it to work. Olivia is doing good. She is all of 12 pounds now. I can't wait until she is a little older and more independent. She makes working hard. Rob's mom came to visit for a week and threw off all of our schedules so we have to get Zach back on track. I did get somethings done last week. I got my mini muffin pizzas done, frozen and sealed. So lunches are taken care of for a while. I also got some meatballs made. They are frozen but not sealed yet. I really didn't get too much done around the house but I did get my ChaCha motivation back!!! So happy about that. They made some system changes and working is so much easier and faster. Love it! For those of you who don't know what ChaCha is: We are text based answering service. (if you have seen the commercials for KGB, we do the same thing but are FREE!) We answer questions. Any question as long as it isn't abusive! Give is a try: The number to text is 242 242. Again, this is absolutely free. I worked here since 2008 and it is a great way to make a few extra bucks. It is how I am funding my vacation account at the moment. We put in a garden a few weeks ago. It is doing great. My peas and green beans have sprouted. Some of my peppers look like they are getting flower buds on them already. I can't wait for fresh veggies!! And my tip for today, instead of using a chemical to keep the bugs off of your a cheap spray bottle at the dollar store, and use dried chilis in it. We just filled the bottle with water, dropped in a few small dried chili's and let them sit for a while. The bugs apparently don't like spicy! So you can put this all over your plants and not have to worry about nasty chemicals. I have seen the chili's at Walmart in the produce section for a little over a dollar for a small pack. Ours were by the potatoes. We bought the big pack for 3.50 by the Mexican food since we use them for Generals Chicken. Thanks for reading and I promise to try to post more often.

Easter gone wrong....

We don't do a whole lot for Easter around here. Both of our families live quite a distance away. The closest relative is an 8 hour drive. For the last few years we have tie dyed shirts on Easter. An odd tradition but it is fun. We dye the shirts with Mickey Mouse's head on them. Really cool. It is a shirt for our Disney vacation which usually happens in May so it is a good way to get excited for the trip. This year this is no Disney trip. We are visiting family instead. So, for our Easter fun project we are going to torture Peeps in the name of science. We are going to set them on fire, put them in the microwave and see what happens when you put one in a vacuum. I have a vacuum sealer and a vacuum container. Sometimes, homeschooling can be so much fun!! But even if you don't homeschool, it is a fun project to do with the kids. I hope everyone has a good Easter.
