  • Good news FINALLY!

    I think Disney finally got their head dislodged from somewhere

    I got a call and I am getting a transfer on February first. It will be primarily a sit down job! Vacation Planner is my official title.

    There is a part of me that knows this is what I need but there is another part of me that doesn't want to leave. I love performing and love all of my co-workers especially my boss who has become a father figure to me. He was there with me in pre-op this last time. He made sure that everything was ok before he would take his flight for his sister's wedding. He reassured me though that just because I'm leaving that our friendship is not going to change and that he will still be there if I have to go to the hospital. I don't know I feel like I'm growing up and leaving home .

    Well, another new adventure for me and hopefully one that will keep me a bit more healthy! Thanks to everyone for being my emotional support here!
