  1. Story - So, I had this dream...

    by , 06-28-2013 at 06:17 AM (It's A Quest...)
    A couple of nights ago the stars aligned and I had a few hours to myself. The Boy was sleepy and went to bed early and easily, and my Beloved had a late night staff meeting. So, having free time I chose to indulge in my favorite obsession pastime. I searched for new Haunted Mansion pictures online. That and the episodes of Storage Wars I watched last weekend made for one strange dream. I thought I’d share it with you…

    Like most dreams, it started ...

  2. Reflection - The Red Badge of Tourage

    by , 06-24-2013 at 07:10 AM (It's A Quest...)
    Americans love horror stories. I’m not just talking about Stephen King, here. Find out a couple is getting married? After we congratulate them we break out the stories of infidelity and betrayal. One of your girlfriends announces she is pregnant? After much cooing, the mothers in the group start telling tales of 36 hour labor, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.

    I had a rare girls’ night out this weekend with a few of my friends. They wanted to hear all about my recent trip to Myrtle ...
  3. Reflection - The Costs of a Vacation

    by , 06-17-2013 at 08:09 AM (It's A Quest...)
    Just returned from a Myrtle Beach vacation with my mother and The Boy. This was Mom’s treat and quite a nice one, too. The Boy is the only grandchild and Mom had to watch her sister take all 5 of her grandkids on a preschool vacation while waiting for her chance. She went all out for us and it was lovely. Seven days and six nights in a lovely hotel right on the beach. With the exception of the travel issues (see below) this was a wonderful experience.

    We chose to drive rather than ...

  4. "No... Disneyland."

    by , 06-07-2013 at 10:34 AM (It's A Quest...)
    Even though our trip isn’t for another three years, I have mentioned it to some friends. They have all had about the same reaction. “Oooh! Disney World! My kids loved it when we went there. EPCOT is amazing! The water parks are great!”

    “No,” I patiently reply, “DisneyLAND.” *blank stare* “California.”

    “Oh. *awkward pause* Why?”

    It’s a fair question. After all, Walt Disney World is twice ...

  5. T -1,101 days and counting...

    by , 06-06-2013 at 10:32 AM (It's A Quest...)
    I am a relatively normal, Midwestern-raised gal with a husband, a dog, and a four-year-old son. One day while watching Disney Junior he (the four-year-old) asks me, “Mama, where does Mickey Mouse live?” Suddenly, childhood memories flooded over me.

    My grandparents lived in Florida. Venice Beach, to be exact. We went to visit them twice in the 70s. Both times we went to Walt Disney World. Pre-EPCOT, ticket book, you-can-still-sense-the-essence-of-Walt, vintage Walt Disney ...
