Keep Moving Forward

Well, we're at the end of March.  Looking back now, it's gone by pretty quickly.  But in the middle of it, it's been a rough few weeks.  Lately, I can't seem to catch a break!

I've still been dealing with some health issues.  My sinus problems have hit an all time high.  Though my nose isn't stuff up, I still can't hear in my right ear.  I went back to the walk-in-clinic and they prescribed me Flonase.  That seemed to help drain my sinuses, but then I had a terrible cough when it all drained into my chest.  I stopped taking it a few days ago and I'm feeling much better.  Yet, my ear is still clogged and feels like it needs to pop but I'm hoping that'll end very soon... more on that below.

We've hit a rough patch with our business between me being sick and dealing with some issues with another shop.  Everything seems to be resolved now, but it's left Eliot and I scrambling a little.  Thankfully, we're almost caught up.  We're even ahead of schedule with printing at least!  It's just been a bit discouraging.  I don't really want to re-hash it, but we definitely hit a low and it left me very angry, upset and hurt.  There have been some bright lights in between the hard spots though!  

I've been having a lot of fun in my adult education classes.  I finally started working on my flannel pyjama pants in my sewing class last week!  In the past week, I've cut my first pattern, the fabric and started sewing the pants together today!  Last week, I also finished my Beauty and the Beast tote bag from last semester.  I only had a few more steps to finalize it.  I'm so happy with out how it turned out!  I've already bought a few more fabrics to make more tote bags with!

I also finished my resin geode from a few weeks ago.  I absolutely love how it turned out!  It's so sparkly!  I can't wait to go to class to make another one in a few days.  I've got Eliot signed up to do it with me and I'm so excited!  I think I might make a pink one this time!  I've also started to buy a few supplies so I can make some at home!

In between working on mouse ears, we've kept busy watching San Jose Sharks games.  We haven't had a good run lately; we've lost 6 games in a row.  But they were the 3rd team in the league to clinch a playoff spot, so I'm not in panic mode... yet.  I'm sure they'll get it together.  They've been plagued with injuries and sickness the past few weeks.  Hopefully they get it out of the way before the playoffs start!

When I haven't felt like doing anything, I've been watching Quantico on Netflix and getting sucked into a world that's not my own.  Eliot and I finished the first season together, and watched the first few episodes of the second.  Then, I watched a few more without him.  I was waiting for him to catch up, but he said he's so confused he's going to have to re-watch it.  He gave me his blessing to continue without him, so I'll probably watch that here and there when I need to take a break!  My sickness has left me pretty exhausted, so it's been good to relax here and there throughout the day.

Last week, I went home to visit Mom, Dad and Nana for a quick overnight trip.  Nana had been in the hospital for a few days (she's ok!) and I really wanted to get home to see everyone.  Eliot and I mailed out a ton of orders on Wednesday so I was able to scoot home Thursday and Friday to visit with them!  I'm also planning to go back the last few days of tax season to help Mom and Dad out.

This past weekend my brother Jeremy came to visit us.  He had an event he was going to in Portland on Sunday, so he drove up Friday night and stayed with us.  Saturday, we went to IHOP for breakfast before heading to the Maine Mall to window shop.  We grabbed snacks and Ralph Breaks the Internet at Walmart.  Then, we got pizza at one of Jeremy's favorite Maine restaurants, came home to watch the Celtics game and then watched Ralph Breaks the Internet- which is really good!  It was a nice relaxing weekend and good to see Jeremy!

And we've got a lot of good things coming up!  Tonight, Eliot and I are on our way to California to see a few San Jose Sharks home games and to visit Eliot's Dad.  (Please pop ear!)  This will actually be my first time seeing one of their regular season games at the Tank!  I'm also really excited because we'll be there to see them play the Vegas Golden Knights and the Calgary Flames.  Both of those teams and the Sharks are the top three teams in the Pacific Division, so they're really important games.  Hopefully, the guys will have a good run while we're there and to finish off the regular season!

While we're out in California, we're also planning to go to the Sharks open practice, the Pro Shop at their training ice and the Sharks Store.  It will be a very hockey filled trip and I'm excited to experience these new things!  In addition, Eliot and I made a list of his favorite restaurants that he wants to visit.  I'm looking forward to warmer weather and the sunshine!  It'll be a quick trip, but I'm sure it'll be a fun one!  When we get home to Maine on Monday, it'll be April!  Hopefully March will end on a good note!  °o°

6 Months Until I Cruise with Mickey

Today, I'm back with some good news!  It randomly occurred to me yesterday that I have exactly six months until my next cruise with Mickey Mouse!!!  I'm still feeling under the weather, but this definitely cheered me up quite a bit!

I've mentioned that Eliot and I were planning to take a Christmas cruise in December of last year, and that we pushed it off to this year.  That's still the plan; and those cruises are booked.  What I didn't tell you was that this September I'm going to another KeyCon (aka, SeaCon) event with my travel company Key to the World Travel.

My first (and so far only) cruise was for SeaCon back in the fall of 2016.  Eliot, my parents, my Nana and my brother Jeremy all joined me and we had the time of our lives.  Every time I'm having a bad day, I close my eyes and picture myself sitting in my beach chair on Castaway Cay with the turquoise waters and tropical fish at my feet.  I am SO excited to be going back!  It really is paradise.

This year, SeaCon 2 is a 4-night Bahamas cruise instead of a three night!  We'll be back on the Disney Dream, which I've decided is my official Disney Cruise ship since that's the one we're booked on this December too!  

I'm also excited that it'll be a Halloween on the High Seas Cruise!  I love seeing the ship all decorated for Halloween!  This year, I'll get to see it decorated for both Halloween and Christmas and my heart is so happy!!!

It won't be all fun though.  We will be learning things as it's still a conference.  (This is my kinda conference!)  We'll be in meetings for a portion of two of the days.  I always learn so much at these sessions!  We're also going to have a reception and I think we're doing fish extender gifts again too!  I'm so excited!

The part I'm most looking forward to is seeing my KTTW friends!  I wasn't able to go to KeyCon this past fall and it's the first time I've missed it since they started having conferences.  I can't wait to see everyone!  I'm also excited to hang out with my cruise roommate, and good friend, Stephanie!  I haven't seen her since we went to KeyCon at Disneyland in December of 2017, so it'll be good to catch up!

Ahh... this totally made my day.  The countdown to SeaCon 2 is on!!!  °o°

Creativity in Silence

Hi Friends.  I thought I'd drop by for a quick hello.  I'm still sick.  This past trip to Disney really did me in.  I've spent a good part of the past week in bed or on the couch.  I'm usually up for a few hours before I have to go back to bed to take a nap.  One day last week, I was up for 4 hours before taking a 4 hour nap.  It was awful.  Thankfully, my awake hours before napping are spreading themselves out farther.

In addition to complete exhaustion, I've had a head cold and sinus thing going on.  And the icing on top of this terrible cake, I have an ear infection and can't hear with my right ear at all.  It's been a week as of Wednesday since I woke up with no hearing.  It's like my ear never popped after we landed back in Maine.  I have that hearing underwater sensation that usually takes only a few hours to clear.  I'm pretty sure that my ears were good when I went to bed last Tuesday after we landed.  Then last Wednesday morning, I woke up sick, congested and couldn't hear.

What's really disconcerting is that I'm supposed to be finished with my medication tomorrow and it hasn't changed.  I'm already planning to take the rest of my Amoxicillin until the bottle is empty but I'll probably only get an extra 2-3 doses.  This situation has me a little rattled.  My ear still hurts every once in a while and I'm afraid that I'm going to have to go back to the doctor to get more medicine.  I don't know.  The only good thing to come out of this is that I've enjoyed having quiet time at the house.  It's been a bit of an emotional week for me anyways.

Monday was an especially rough day.  We had a snow storm Sunday into Monday morning.  When I woke, there was something serene about the fresh snow covering everything in sight.  I was a bit concerned about Eliot commuting to work, but he was ok.  It was also my Papa's birthday and that was weighing heavily at the back of my mind.  He would have been 86 this year.  I still miss him terribly, but I'm glad he is no longer in pain.  And I know he's watching over all of us.

With my sickness and thoughts of Papa piling on top of me, I've decided to allow myself to have a relaxing week filled with reflection and quiet time.  I had grand plans of massive spring cleaning upon our return from Florida, but this is all I can manage right now.  Maybe the mood to clean will suddenly strike me, but today, I'm comfortable with taking some time to relax, rest, recuperate and simply be.  Plus, this quiet time has allowed me to take some time to explore my creative side.

On Monday, I was browsing Pinterest while watching Supergirl when I stumbled across the blog of an art teacher who makes her own art inspired outfits.  I went down the rabbit hole looking at her handmade skirts, dresses, sweaters, bags, hair accessories, jewelry and more.  About 30 minutes later, I resurfaced with a ton of ideas for new outfits and new accessories for the Festival of the Arts next year.  I was so inspired!

On Tuesday, my sewing class started for the spring sesssion.  I love having time set aside to do something fun.  It's also a chance for me to get out and be social.  Being alone at home all the time can get lonely sometimes.  I didn't even sew this week.  I didn't have the supplies and pattern that I needed since I've been sick since our return from Florida.  (I had grand plans to drive up to Portland late last week to get them.)  I enjoyed catching up with the others and watching one of the other girls in class work on a pillow case.  I'm excited to see what new projects this session will bring!

On Wednesday, I had my Resin Geode class.  This is the class I told you about before that I've been counting down to.  Like I said before, I'm so excited about it that I've signed up to take it in two different locations!  I enjoyed myself so much.  We did most of the artwork side this week, ending the night with pouring our resin.  Next week, once the resin has set, we'll go in and add the fine details and the larger stones that need to be glued.  (I forgot to take a picture before I put my project on the shelf, but here's a photo of it sitting there.  I'll take another once it's done.  The other photos are pictures my teacher took while we were all in the process of making our geodes.)

I enjoyed my class so much that yesterday morning, I spent a bit of time researching supplies for resin geodes.  I've already added a bunch of stuff to my Amazon wish list, as well as my Etsy favorites.  I also made a list of things to check out at the local craft store.  I'm hoping to buy a few new supplies with our tax refund money.  I can see myself making a lot of acrylic pours and resin geodes in the future!  It's addicting!

Anyways, I'm hoping I'll get better soon.  This whole not being able to hear correctly is getting old, no matter how much I try to find the good in this situation.  I have a whole new appreciation for people who are hard of hearing.  It's really hard, especially when you're out in public.  In the meantime, I'm just taking everything one day at a time. °o°

A Revision To My 30 Things in My 30's List

Well, I thought it was time to check in on my 30 Things to Do During My 30's List.  It's been in the back of my mind lately... especially since I left my job and I'm looking to spend more time on personal endeavors going forward.

You may recall that I decided to make this list after discovering that a lot of people make 30 things to do before turning 30 lists.  I heard about it shortly before my 30th birthday and it didn't leave me much time to make a list, much less to complete it!  You know how much I love a good bucket list.  This concept intrigued me and it seemed like a great idea to make a longer term bucket list of sorts, so I made one.

Photo Source: Disney
I kicked off my 30th year with a Rapunzel and Tangled themed birthday party.  Instead of looking at turning 30 with dread like most people do, I chose to look at it as the next big adventure.  I've always identified with Rapunzel's sense of wonder and how she always has a dream.  Therefore, I created a list that captures that philosophy and spirit.

However, recently I've decided to make a few changes to my list.  Upon reflecting and checking in to see where I'm at, I realized that a few things that were so important to me a few years ago, just aren't important to me anymore.  I flip flopped between keeping them and stubbornly trying to attempt them anyways, but after this past week, I've decided that I'm going to change them to reflect my current desires.  

Originally, this list was mostly comprised of Disney-centric goals.  So now, I'm updating the list to include a few things outside of Disney.  Passions and goals can change.  At this point in my life, I have absolutely no desire to do a half marathon, nor is it healthy for me to do so with my knee problems.  This has been the case since the get-go and I'm finally at the point where I'm accepting it.  Three of my original goals were based off of completing a half marathon, so instead of forfeiting those goals, I've decided to replace them with things I'm more passionate about now.  The last goal I'm replacing is one that's always on my annual goal list, so it seemed silly to leave it here.  (It was probably just a filler at that point in time anyways... so it's gonna leave this list too!)

So here's my updated list.  The deleted goals are in red and the new ones in blue.  I've crossed the original goals out and replaced them with the goals now taking their place.

30 Things To Do During My 30's (Updated List):
  1. Visit Disneyland During the 60th Anniversary 
  2. Buy Our First House 
  3. Go On Our First Disney Cruise
  4. Get a Puppy

  28. Go to the Magic Kingdom on it's 50th Birthday (October 1st of 2021)
  29. Launch Other Business Ideas
  30. Have a 10th Anniversary Vow Renewal
I'm really happy with how this new list looks!  I no longer have this pit in my stomach when looking at it... now I'm back to feeling like I can conquer anything!  I also have a few things on it to cross off!  I think I'll try to post an update to how it's going closer to my 35th birthday later this year!  Wow!  35!  It's hard to think that I'm already about halfway through my 30's!  Time to get working on the rest of this list!  °o°

WDW February 2019 Bucket List Results

It's been a few days since our return from Walt Disney World.  Unfortunately, I'm still really sick with this head cold.  In fact, I think I've gotten worse instead of better.  Rest and medicine all weekend it is!  Hopefully that'll put me on the mend!  Now that we're settling back in, I thought I'd re-visit my trip Bucket Lists.  We got a lot of it done this time around, even though we were bouncing around all over the place most of our trip.

Here's how it turned out:

°o°  1.) Meet Mickey and Minnie in their Celebration Outfits

This was the last thing Eliot and I did before we left.  Even though I felt like crap, I forced myself to go into the Magic Kingdom to catch our Fastpass.  We're not sure if we'll both be back to WDW before the 90th Celebration ends so I needed at least one photo of us with Mickey and Minnie in their outfits.  And it was worth it!

°o°  2.) Figment's Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt

This ended up being a disaster.  Eliot and I found one of the paintings last trip by accident, so I had this thought that the scavenger hunt would be easy.  After looking through Canada and the UK, we gave up in order to enjoy our time in the World Showcase, and to save our feet for our races.  Maybe we'll try it another time when we don't have to worry about how our feet will be affected!

°o°  3.) Paint a Square at the Festival of the Arts Wall Mural

I absolutely hate that this event is only from 11:00-5:00 daily.  We were at the Festival of the Arts so much this year, yet we were never there when it was open.  It was either too late in the day, or they were switching the canvases out.  All in all, it's not a big deal, but I was a little bit disappointed.  At least I got to see many different murals!

°o°  4.) Finally go on one of the Avatar Rides in Pandora

We did finally go on one of the Avatar rides.  Eliot and I had Fastpasses for Na'vi River Journey for this past Monday but we ended up getting in line Saturday night about 30 minutes before Animal Kingdom closed.  We waited maybe 20-25 minutes in line with his parents and sister Elissa before enjoying the ride.  The lighting and special effects were so cool!  Definitely worth the wait!  And I'm glad his family got to see it too!

°o°  5.) Animation Academy at Festival of the Arts

This was a hard one when we were trying to do so many other things.  I would have loved the chance to go draw more, but I can still do it at Disneyland.  I can also follow some Youtube tutorials Disney has posted.  All in all, not a huge loss.

°o°  6.) Attend the Princess Half Marathon Expo

This was a lot of fun.  I love checking out the merchandise at the runDisney events- although my wallet would disagree!  This year did not disappoint.  Eliot, his parents and I all waited in line for probably 45 minutes or so, and then we went wild.  I'm so glad we went the first day.  The princess spirit jerseys were sold out around noon.  (But I got mine!)  We also got a few t-shirts, jackets, magnets, pins, and other mementos.

°o°  7.) Make a Silk Scarf at the Festival of the Arts

This was kind of like the Animation Academy.  You could do it anytime, but you had to make time to do it.  I'm a little bit disappointed that I didn't get to do it, but I did a little research after our trip to see if they had it at the festival last year.  They did- so I'm hoping it'll be back again next year.  Moreover, I found that you can make marbled silk scarves at a new art store in Disney Springs!  And, after seeing how they did it, Eliot wants to see if he can make me a bath to dye silk scarves at home.  (I already have a silk scarf painting kit... I just need the rack which he'll also make me.)  So, I'm a lot less disappointed knowing that I could be doing this all the time at home!  Yay!

°o°  8.) See Pandora at Night for the First Time

Elissa wanted to do this too so we went to Pandora Saturday evening.  We got there at dusk and stayed the rest of the night so we could see the lights, take pictures and even ride the Na'vi River Journey.  Definitely worth it!  The lighting and effects are awesome!

°o°  9.) Do the Festival of the Arts Photo Ops

We did a few of these while strolling around the World Showcase.  They ended up being really awkward so I was ok doing only a few.  Next time, I'll probably skip them.

°o°  10.) Do my best in the Princess Half Marathon Events

I definitely did this.  I finished the 5K and the 10K, even though it was hot, humid and pretty miserable for this Maine girl.  I'm so proud of that 10K medal.  It was really humid and sticky that morning, but I told myself I could do it, and I did!  I did suit up for the half even though I had no intentions of finishing it.  I debated even going to the start line, but I did it, even though I pulled myself out of the race very early.  I realized that it wasn't worth hurting myself and that I'd rather see Eliot finish the race.  No regrets at all!  I'm definitely proud of my accomplishments this past weekend!

As you know, I also had some goals for the Festival of the Arts treats:

°o°  1.) Pop Art Tart (various festival booths)

This was the first treat I checked off my list.  It was available at a few different booths and we got ours outside of Mexico.  While I enjoyed it, Eliot got the Pop-Artsicle slush drink.  We shared a little of each.  The Pop Art Tart was delicious and I'm hoping they bring it back next year.  It was like a cookie pop tart.  Yum.

°o°  2.) Festival of the Arts Cupcake (at Sunshine Seasons)

I got this another day we were at the festival.  I was quite surprised that the inside of the cake was a rainbow.  The frosting tasted like peanut butter and it was so good.  By far the best part was the hidden Mickey on the plate though.  Super cute!

°o°  3.) Lobster Bacon Macaroni and Cheese in a Cone (at Taste Track)

I had really high hopes for this.  Eliot and I had Lobster Macaroni and Cheese as one of the dishes at our wedding buffet.  Since this was also at Epcot, I had hoped it would be the same recipe.  Sadly, it wasn't and I was left highly disappointed.  Honestly, I thought it was gross.  The bacon and seasoning on top was good, but the mac and cheese wasn't very cheesy... or maybe the cheese was so fancy it was gross.  And the bread cone didn't do it for me.  In fact, I was so disappointed that I'm taking the cone off my list of things to try at Disneyland.  (They have tons of foods served in a cone at the Cozy Cone in Carsland.)  Just thinking of it makes me sick.  I'm from Maine; I know lobster.  I know how to make Mac and Cheese.  From here on in, I'll just make my own.

°o°  4.) Paint Brush Churros (at Taste Track)

These were also disappointing.  After taking a few photos for this post, I grabbed the pink churro and ate it while waiting for my mac and cheese to be done.  Eliot promptly ate the rest and declared that they weren't that tasty.  I concurred.  I guess we're both just suckers for lots of cinnamon and sugar on churros.  Oh well, can't win them all.

°o°  5.) White Chocolate Painting w/Chocolate Easel (in Canada)

We didn't get a chance to try this.  First of all, I couldn't find it on the menu.  (Maybe I was at the wrong booth?)  When we were running out of time our last night, we opted to go for the Taste Track items... now I'm wishing I'd found this instead.

°o°  6.) Musical Float (at Fife and Drum)

This float was delicious.  Eliot grabbed it for me while we were waiting in line to watch the Disney on Broadway performance the last day of the festival.  It was basically a red, white and blue multi-flavored slush drink with vanilla soft serve ice cream.  The ice cream melted and it was so good.  Sweet, but delicious.  Eliot enjoyed it too.  Yum.

°o°  7.) Frosé (at L’Art de la Cuisine Française)

I had this one of the nights we went to the festival and it was so good that I drank it way to fast.  (And I was feeling no pain at all the following 30 minutes or so!)  It was sweet and easy to forget that it had alcohol in it.  It had Ros
é Wine, Grey Goose Vodka and Peach Purée in it.  I hope they bring this back too!  At over $12 it was pricey but totally worth it!  There was quite a bit of drink in it too!  Yummy!

In addition to these, we also did a few other things we weren't expecting:

°o° Hall of Presidents on President's Day

This was just a happy coincidence that our trip lined up with President's Day.  While at the Magic Kingdom, I told Eliot we should see it since we don't know if it'll line up again.  It was worth it.  I never knew how passionate people were about our audio-animatronic presidents.  I've been there since the recent changes, but it was no were near as controversial as this time.  There were cheers and boos for both sides.  Eliot and I watched the charade from the back row.  It's definitely something we won't forget!

°o° One Day at the Park with All Six of Us

This probably sounds silly, but originally Sara wasn't planning to go into the parks at all this trip.  She's got a ton of tests at vet school and she thought she'd be spending the trip at the timeshare studying if she wasn't at a race event.  However, she decided she needed to keep walking after the 10K, so we convinced her to join us.  We only got a few hours in the park, but it was still a lot of fun!  We made sure to show the girls things they couldn't see at Disneyland like PeopleMover, Carousel of Progress, Country Bears, PhilharMagic and Happily Ever After.  I think they enjoyed it!  We certainly did!

°o° Disney on Broadway

Ok, so we knew this was going on at Epcot since we caught it last trip.  But what we didn't know was that we'd be able to catch the show on the final day when they had four performers singing together in one show.  The line was so long, but we did make it into the theater for the second show.  I'm so glad we did.  It was incredible.

°o° Goodbye to IllumiNations

This was another thing that we knew was coming, but weren't quite sure exactly when it would happen.  There's a chance that we'll be back to see IllumiNations one more time, but nothing is set in stone and I'm not sure if Eliot will be with me.  So... this was it.  The last time we were positive that we'd see it together.  I know that change is good.  I was upset to see Wishes go, but Happily Ever After is amazing and it's now my favorite.  But Illuminations was the show we watched with our guests on our wedding night.  Plus, Promise, the song they play immediately after the show ends, was our first dance song.  So, this one hurt a little.  I made it through most of the show before dissolving into a puddle of tears though.  Then, they struck again when Promise came on.  Eliot promised me that we'll bring it on our phones and that we can play it after the new show, but it'll never be the same.

°o° Got Stuck on Frozen Ever After

So this isn't normally something people would get excited about, but I had to admit that this was one of the coolest moments of the entire trip.  (I think it was our first full day there too!)  Eliot and I got stuck on Frozen Ever After at the part where Anna and Kristoff are singing to you.  The ice palace with Elsa is my favorite part, so of course we just missed that.  The lights turned on, the audio-animatronics got turned off, and we sat there for a long time.  They tried to re-start the ride but it wasn't working correctly, so they turned the water off.  We were eventually escorted out of the ride by two cast members.  We got to walk past the entire beginning of the ride.  To an engineer and designer, this was heaven- to see the sets and details up close was incredible.  Eliot even got to see into the Olaf mechanics on the way by.  Obviously, we weren't allowed to take behind the scenes photos, but trust me, it was awesome!

And there you have it!  It was a good trip despite me getting my butt handed to me by the end of it.  I'm still pretty tired, but it was worth it!

March 2019 Calendar

Hello March!  I can't believe you're already here!  This year is flying by... which is really no surprise to me since we've barely been home as much as we've been away.  I'm looking forward to spending some quality time getting projects done this month.  I'll also be spending some time helping my parents out with tax season.  Plus, I've got a few more adult education classes that I'm really looking forward to!  I think it's going to be a good month!  Here's my free printable calendars to get March off on the right foot!

I'm so humbled and honored to continue the tradition of posting my free printable calendars for other Disney fans to enjoy.  This is my 5th year!!!  I started making these back when I started my blog in 2014.  I first designed them as a way to track Eliot's and my RunDisney training and it's come so far!  I was so happy with how they turned out that I had to share them with everyone else.  To date, my printable calendars have been used for Disney trip countdowns, Disney themed classrooms, training calendars for runDisney events and to surprise kids with a Disney vacation!

Here's the link to download the March 2019 PDF version of the printable.
