third time is the charm??? or so they say. Just finished booking a home in solana (davenport) for the last week in july for the whole damn family to visit disney. 8 adults and 2 kids in a 5 bed 3 bath house for a week with the added bonus of long disney days (4 of them) can't possibly be the recipe for something to go wrong can it ??gLUTTON fOR pUNISHMENT? Cheap, you're a braver man than me! And I STILL keep forgetting that stupid caps key!
Youngest dd thinks that she needs a break in the midst of her 2 year teacher's college course so when she gets her mind made up she is an unstoppable force similar to her mother . found this house on homeaway for like 150 a night with a pool and hot tub and games room on top of the aforementioned bedrooms and baths. driving down from here in 2 or 3 vehicles (they want to drive straight through and THAT isn't going to happen). Of course mom and dad got conned into paying for the rent on the house and last week disney tickets were at par for canadians which is a 40% savings. I think that the party line from the 3 girls was something to the effect of "dad I know you like cruises but this will be fun to have the whole family together and cheaper than a cruise and more fun." We will see after we live the experience if that actually holds true. I remember "fondly" those disney days when everyone leaves the park totally exhausted from trying to cram the full disney experience down their throats in just one day per park. Don't get me wrong I love disneyworld but it isn't always the happiest place on earth.
Trying to think happier thoughts (my lawn is not one of them). you said handy around the house - I'm definitely not. I used to have a beautiful front lawn - friends would tell me how nice it was. these days its all moss and weeds, We have two giant maple trees in front of house (are Maple trees a Canadian curse sent to us from the North?). When we moved in 32 years ago they were small. the City plants them - even though its our property the City controls what's between the sidewalk and street. Our house and lawn face North, and the trees prevent the sun from reaching the lawn.
