    Re: RCMC # 136 - It's Not Easy Being Green - Hop to it everyone....

    Our insurance guy called me back today about our retirement annuity. It seems he has been doing a bit of research, and if we switch products, even at this late date, we can get a few more thousand in income a year. Sounds like a small deal, but it works for me. He's coming back on Saturday.

    When I think about what my mom lived on for her retirement, I don't know how she survived. We are way better off, thankfully.

    Hey a few extra thousand a year isn't necessarily a small thing. I would take it too. And I always view it in terms of, it's vacation money For a couple grand you can easily take an international trip somewhere. You could definitely do Disneyland once a year if not twice.

    I hope to be able to continue to save enough for our vacations. My husband is a homebody, and I'm not sure how much longer he is going to want to drive up to the Dells for our one getaway together. He worries about everyone else, before himself. He is always encouraging me to take my trips. I can't believe in 2 1/2 years he will be 70.

    Bummer, hope he continues to take vacations with you. You guys are the same age as my Mom. She'll vacation and go places if I take her. My Mom has been retired for quite some time now and she loves it. Well at least you still have Disney vacations you can take.

    I can't wait to go Labor Day weekend. I can't remember which fireworks is playing then. I hope its RDCT it's my favorite. Although I've only seen Magical once, when I was down over Memorial Day weekend a few years back. I believe Dumbo flies in that fireworks show.

    Magical is really cool. That is the one that will be playing while I am there. I love seeing Dumbo, and Tinker Bell fly. I haven't seen Fantasmic in a very long time. I am looking forward to that.

    My legs are tired; can I stop climbing ladders all day?

    Lol.

    My mind still thinks I'm 25, the rest of me is a bit older and simply cannot keep up anymore.

    Bring everything up in one trip. It take a lot of planning to avoid those tiring trips.

    The last two or maybe it's been three years, they have summer going through that week. You will probably see Magical.

    I think the downside could be that RDCT gets replaced next year for the 60th. Of course it could be Magical that gets replaced. Or both.

    I wonder if there will be a catch. You usually don't get something for nothing.

    But still worth looking into.

    It was actually a bit cooler today. I just hope this weekend its decent. Weather channel says a chance of some clouds this weekend. I'd take that. No rain but even some clouds might keep the temps down a bit. Plus if we go into JT Park... and I'm sure we will... it will make for better picture taking opportunities.

    I woke up super early this morning. I guess that's because I was in bed before 10 p.m. last night. I have laundry to do today, and I need to walk to Walgreens to refill all of my husband's prescriptions and mine.

    Happy Tuesday everyone.

    Happy Tuesday! Working both jobs today, but this will be the last split shift I have to do for a while... probably.... unless the phone rings or I get a text message from one of the other techs.

    Rained here all day today. Just a lite sprinkle, but actual rain nonetheless. Kind of a nice change......
