    Well I've learned I need to go back and scroll through previous posts. Seeing some people quoting other posts, I came to realize when these boogers come out of moderation I'm missing many. Oooops to the slighted, sorry.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    I talked to my mom for a bit last night about our summer trip to Disney plans. I suggested that we can go August (because of DCP and stuff) and do Lou's E ticket event thing and then his cruise ( if you haven't seen/heard he is doing it in august) and my mom said that she will talk to dad about it.

    This spoiled girl may finally be going on Lou's Cruise.

    I am going home today to see mom and dad and see pictures and hear stories from their trip. Plus who does not want to pass up getting gifts from them.

The scariest part was when we were climbing out of one them and my back was touching a rock and my face was touching another.
    I googled it. Very cool! I LOVE places like that!

    When you mentioned rocks there's a place here in Central Texas that I immediately thought of - Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. It's basically 2 GIANT pink granite monoliths in the middle of nowhere. We used to go camping, rock climbing and rappelling there back in the day. One time a buddy of mine, who's uncle was the head park ranger there for a while, and I went into one of the many caves that are there. It was very long and very tight and we had to mostly crawl through the whole thing. And, we only had one flashlight. These days I sometimes think hmmm...glad that one flashlight didn't get dropped and broken or somethin'. We mighta' been even WAY thinner than we already were and stunk to high heck by the time we finally got outta' there...!

    Edit:
    Oh, and apparently it was given the name Enchanted Rock (translated) by the native Americans that originally lived near it. They say that on summer evenings, after a long hot summer day, it would make strange creaking and cracking noises as the rock cooled and they thought it was inhabited by the spirits.
    Legend has it that white pioneers would often take refuge up there from the native Americans if they had to because they new they wouldn't dare be followed up there by them.
    It is also referred to, by many, as the "heart" of Texas.

    Here are a coupla' pics of Enchanted Rock. They REALLY don't do it justice, but you get the idea.

    Maybe this one does it a little more justice...



    The first time you see it in person it's really quite overwhelmingly amazing.

    That is similar to my first kinda solo trip materialized in 2007. I wasn't sending my DS to live somewhere I had not seen. Just he and I went down, stayed at the FC, did the parks and a few days later took him to be inducted. They had a nice area that was set up for parents of new CPs and kept us busy as they finger printed them, took SS#, all the paper work and then paired them up with room mates. When that was over we dragged all his stuff up to his room, of course floor 3 and a roomie helped him with the balance. So I got to meet another Mom and his apartment. Then it was time for him to get on a bus to be hauled over to casting. A wave from the bus, I never saw him again but it was OK 'cause he was so excited. I took a taxi back to FC and was off to explore the parks by myself the next two days. I could have seen him if I wished but he was having so much fun and went into 5 straight days of some pretty grueling training 8 hours a day because he needed a certificate for his particular role.

    It was fun to be with him before he was inducted. DH had to stay home with DD because she started high school at the same time.

    Edit: this didn't go to moderation but the next did.

    They had a bunch of stuff from the cruise that I was looking at and I got to a couple of papers about next year cruise then I went to look at the paper behind the one explain next years and my dad like toke away really fast (almost ripping the paper), all I could see was our MEI travel agent name on it. At first I was thinking it was a bill but then I found that later in the pile. And my father gets this look on his face when he is trying to hid something or lie and that face has popped a lot this weekend. Then at dinner we were talking about it and I asked them if they did again what would they do different. Mom would answer...well next year....wait next time... we will blah blah. So something is getting planned.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Hello everyone! I have missed you all. I just can't find time but will do my best to stop in to see you all. Brief recap. Life has been crazy these past few years. I have been so busy with family, friends, work & a change in work. I am back to full time work. Thank goodness those part time hours were hard to do anything at all. LOL These hours switch week every other week 8:30-5 then 8:30-4:30 p.m. Traffic has been good & bad.

    DH is well, working hard.

    My DD is now an RN she graduated in May passed in July. I am very proud of her. She moved out in March. Everyone asked what its like, she wasn't home with school, 2 jobs & boyfriend & family. She is on the Disney Dream today with her boyfriend they set sail soon. Trying to catch the ship sail from a web cam I found.

    The puppies are a handful. I wonder what I was thinking lol. But they keep me moving which is good.

    We have our next Walt Disney Disney trip planned for next year & we are also going to Universal Studio's.

    Then we are looking for Lou to announce the Alaska dates as I think we need to go as our ship deposit needs to be used Trip of a lifetime.

    McKayla, I am so happy for you on the college program.

    Steve, great photo's that place looks relaxing.

    Gabe, thank you for staying with me on Twitter

    Reading up a bit. By the time I get home I am so tired of computer work & barely look at mine.
