  • Off to play with the Mouse

    I wish you all could see the big smile on my face right now.
    The bags are packed, my ears have been dusted off and the dog sitter is moving in.
    I know there are others out there that love Mickey Mouse and his friends as much as we do. Really looking foward to this trip. Last year we went down just 12 weeks after my myectomy. I did all the rides except Mission SPACE. If anyone has been on that one they know why I avoided it so soon after open heart!!!!!. I'm feeling so much better this time around. I lost 30 pounds over the last four months and it has made a huge impact on my stamina.
    Lets hope I can stick to my diet, the Food and Wine Festival is still going on.
    See you real soon,

        I was there last Saturday! Was going to do Food and Wine but too crowded snuck over to MK and played on the tea cups, watched country bear jamboree, jungle cruise, and pirates. Had a Dole Whip then a hot dog at Casey's Corner was a good Saturday!
