Disneyland WITHOUT MOI! WHA...???

Hubby , Silly-boy, Heartbreaker Vincent, and Hubby's sister left for SoCal last Wednesday to visit our son and his family, as well as my brother-in-law and his wife. They will be driving back home on Tuesday. They have been having FUN WITHOUT ME and Stitch-Kid!! ??? *sigh* I am looking forward to when we don't have to deal with kids on different schedules anymore. The elementary schools here are on a year round schedule with tracks and the Jr High and High school are on a traditional schedule. That really makes it a PAIN for families to have FUN TOGETHER!! WHO thought of this craziness, anyway??? 
SOooo... Did I EVER tell you that when we lived in SoCal we had annual passes and went to Disneyland FREQUENTLY!! We had those Fast Passes down to a SCIENCE!!! We knew all the ins and outs of the magical place!! It was a great escape from the real world!! 
This picture from 2004 should give you 
an idea of HOW MUCH we LOVED it!!
They are going TODAY!!! WITHOUT US!! *sigh*
Although, if it was ME, I'd do the same and 
I DO hope they have FUN!!
Sad thing, when we went in FEB my tail bone was bothering me so bad that I stayed in the hotel while they went. I was good with it, though. I couldn't see spending that kind of money to watch them go on rides all day. The tail bone has been a little better lately, so I'm kinda' wishing I could be there with them this time. Next time, I guess... It's not that big of a deal, but it brings back all those fun memories!! Hubby will forever be a KID at heart! That's a GOOD thing, too!!
 Honestly, I'm missing them MUY MUCHO and am 
REALLY looking forward to their return! ;D

1. What is your favorite pasta dish?
MMMmmmm... I have to choose ONE??? 
They're ALL so YUMMY!!
Last time I went to Applebee's (for Stitch-Kid's birthday), they had a new dish. I tried the Florentine Ravioli with Chicken. It was SO YUMMY!!! I think I'll have to try the Provolone-stuffed Meatballs with Fettuccine next time!! I love the Chicken Fettucine Alfredo at Olive Garden, too!!

There is a Spaghetti Meat Sauce that I make that hubby absolutely LOVES!!

2. The last thing you do before going to bed?
Make the dogs go out to go potty.  ;p

3. How many nights a week do you go out to eat?
Sometimes none... Sometimes carry out, 
like Chinese, Mexican or pizza.
Occasionally we get a date or celebrate 
a special event with the fam...  ;D

4. Are you an avid book reader?
I wouldn't say I'm an avid book reader...
I READ BOOKS... but I have to think about a good time to start one; because when I DO, and if it's GOOD, it will consume me until it is DONE! *sigh*

5. Would you rather have x-ray vision or bionic hearing?
Then I would hear more clearly and not misunderstand things I THOUGHT I heard... *sigh*

I am an avid book reader.
I wouldn't want bionic hearing.
I love silence too much.

I couldn't deal with bionic hearing. Silence is definitely golden.

You make our Disneyland trip look like a trip to Walmart!

I can totally relate to the year round school scedule. When my oldest was in 6th grade MS, my 2 younger children were in year round elementary school. The only thing I did like about it was that when my older son was off from shcool we got to spend quality time together, just mom and son.

That's funny about Disney Land, I used to live in Florida and went to Disney World lots.

I'll be back this Wednesday to hook up with your awesome Awareness Wednesday post. :)

Tauna & Chele: Well the choice was bionic hearing or x-ray vision... Some things are better a little blurred and COVERED! LOL!! But I figure if I had BIONIC hearing, than I would be able to focus in on what I WANT to hear instead of all the peripheral noise that seems to take over and as I concentrated trying to hear what I WANT to hear, if I have even the slightest of a headache... it's heading to migraine status in NO TIME! ;D

Kristina: THIS funny dress-up thing was only ONCE!!! LOL!! But it's my FAVORITE pic because we're such NUTS!! (To college boy's demise, of COURSE!)

Lori: This week, Stitch-Kid and I have had LOTS of quality time... Mindy Gledhill concert TONIGHT! WOOHOO!! ...and when we lived in Florida, we were still 8 hours away and I can only think of 2xs going. ??? I KNOW! I was SO DEPRIVED!! ;p Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday! ;D

I went to Disneyland on my honeymoon, but that doesn't count. Then, we went last year...for what I consider to be the first time...and IT WAS FANTASTIC! I LOVE Disneyland! It is magical~I don't care what anyone says. Especially Main Street. So turn of the century beautiful! Sorry you can't be there.

Holly said...

So Lisa... does th first time not count because you didn't get to the park much??? ;p

On Main Street is a wonderful ice cream parlor, and another in the train in CA Adventure... MMMMMmmmm.... It's quite the tradition that we would just get one BIG one and everybody had a spoon to dig into it! YUMMERS!!

I love Disneyland. I go there about once a week and it still never gets old.
