As we left Disneyland on Wednesday I was a little teary not knowing
when we would be back. I had hoped for a
Christmas trip but it was not looking good for us.
Yesterday I was playing
around trying to price hotels for us so I could give Andy the cost. Little did I know but Andy was also doing a
budget that would allow us to go in December.
The excitement is back and
we are less than two months from our trip in December.
Yesterday we booked our
non refundable hotel room at the Fairfield Inn so all we have to do is follow
this budget and we will be fine.
I have been saving change
all year and told Andy that I would just take $25.00 household money for
spending money and that I would use the change for any additional
spending. I have no idea how much change
I have but again, that is budgeting so that we can do the trip.
Amazingly I just went on a
trip where I only spent $50! I am a
shopper at heart, and love shopping while at Disneyland. I thought it would be a struggle and may well
have been if I had not been in a scooter.
Not being on my own two feet kept me out of some of my favorite haunts,
Disneyana and the Disney Showcase. I did
my shopping at World of Disney due to the size.
I have begun a new
collection, and it is something I actually display AND use. The little pill boxes they sell at the
Fortuosity Shop, the Art
Gallery and the
collectors area at World of Disney. I
now have four of these. My original two
- Dumbo and Pinocchio, and the two I just bought, Jack Skellington and Tinker
Bell. These are small, easy to bring
home and they look cute on my dresser.
Now I know I can buy at least one of these in December.
Because yes, we are going
to Disneyland in December. I am very excited about this since we didn't
go last year.
Seeing the Carolers on Main Street, the
lights and music at 'it's a small world', and more Haunted Mansion Holiday will
We already know I will
probably be in an ECV again unless a miracle happens with my knee, but we
survived last trip and will survive again.
Disneyland in December, here I come!
