Disneyland, But Later

Everyone and their dog knows I am planning on taking the kids to Disneyland, right?

My original plan was to go soon, and I was planning on late March or early April. But unfortunately I think I have bitten off more than I can chew, and I can't handle planning that right now.

Right now I am in the middle of looking for houses, and even put an offer on one yesterday! House shopping is very time consuming, so I have been super busy with that. Plus I have a few other obligations I can't get out of, so I just figured that Disney can wait.

The time I am shooting for is October of this year. I know that is 10 months away, but honestly, I think it would be easier for us to go then. It will be one year then, and to have us all distracted, and having fun and laughing, will be what Barry would have wanted. Rather than us sitting at home being depressed, and missing him, we will be out having fun and enjoying ourselves. Celebrating his life, and how much of a wonderful and loving daddy, husband and friend he was.

Sorry for not blogging often, I really have been so busy that I haven't felt like sitting down to write. But rest assured, my first "A Year of Memories" post will be coming up soon! And if I get the house I put an offer on, I will post that information too. I can't wait to share it all with you!

I agree with waiting. I think the kids will enjoy it more, too.

I believe that's off season, so you also might be able to get some good deals on stuff too!
How exciting that you've already put an offer in for a house. I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. Are the kids excited about moving?

I sure hope that you get the house!

That's a great decision. October is a great month to go, because they have everything decked out for halloween! :)

Also, I hope you get the house!!!

I think waiting is a great idea. Not to mention, I think they'll be set up for Halloween around then! Fun, fun!

October is a great time to go! Disneyland redecorates for the holiday and retools the Haunted Mansion into The Nightmare Before Christmas. The only better time to go is right before or after Thanksgiving when they redecorate for Christmas - it's simply stunning!

Good luck with your househunting and don't worry about Disney. You can have a blast without planning a thing.

You are so wise and definitely have your priorities straight.
So glad you found a new place.
That is wonderful!
I'll try to keep in touch here more often vs. GF.
