Hello Dolly!

I have been enjoying (?) the after effects of Hurricane Dolly today! If you look at our weather map, you see lots and lots of green with some yellow and reds. (I tried to download some pictures but no luck) Lots and lots of rain but that is good because we need the rain. We have put the indoor time to good use and have been doing some long overdue cleaning. Hard to believe school starts in one month. Hope you all are staying safe and dry. Blessings!

For All You Inquiring Minds Out There.....

Yes, we went to Disney world again! This was a good trip for us, as we got to stay at the Polynesian (I have always wanted to stay there and they do a good job of making it look like Hawaii!) Since this was our 3rd trip, it was a lot more laid back and relaxing. We did not feel the need to see EVERYTHING. We skipped the early hours at the park and hit the late hours instead. This allowed us to sleep late in the morning, go swim for awhile before hitting the parks in the afternoon. It always rains in Florida but this trip it rained about 5 pm everyday instead of the 1pm time that it rained the last two trips we made to Disney world. We just put on our rain ponchos and kept going. It was nice because the crowds would thin out after the rain and it would not be to crowded for awhile.

I don't think hubby thought the Polynesian was worth the extra money but I sure did. The resort is smaller than the other two we have stayed at. It is on the monorail, so less standing in line waiting for the buses (still had to take buses to Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom)and the rooms were bigger than the other rooms we have stayed in. I loved it!

Less crowds at resort and less walking makes for a happier Mama. And when Mama is happy everyone tends to be a little happier!

So for all 2 of you who were waiting with baitted breath to find out where we went, there you have it!

Cleaning Poem

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess.
He asked if I'd been 'computering',
And I had to answer 'yes.'

He told me to get off my fanny
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.

I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick...
I was just admiring my work..
I didn't mean to 'click.'

But click, I did, and oops I found
A real absorbing site.

That I got SO way into.
I was into it all night.

Nothing's changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.

I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney.

I borrowed this from Sandy at Flip Flop Floozie, I am not sure if she wrote it or borrowed it from somewhere, it wasn't credited to if you wrote this let me know and I will be happy to give you credit because I think it is very funny!

Every day when I wake up, my job is to choose what kind of day I’m going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy...or, I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money...or, I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health...or, I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up...or, I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work...or, I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework...or, I can appreciate that I have a place to call home.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And I am the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
