Living life in the carpool lane..

So remember when I said I was going to make it my resolution to go to Disneyland at least five times this year..

Well.. it’s been done!

I went to Disney’s California Adventure yesterday with OT.

On April 2nd, I plan on going to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure again with some family.

I know.. I’m a grown woman.. Disneyland should be the last of my priorities..

But seriously.. that place helps “destress” me when life gets too hectic.  It’s one of those places that you can just let things go and have fun..

Funny thing is that OT and I saw my ex’s best friend working at the park yesterday.  I wasn’t expecting to see him but I always knew I was going to run into him there.

It wasn’t a big deal.. I didn’t go over there and say hi.. why would I?  And I know he saw me.. cuz I saw him notice us..

He may something to the ex.. but I don’t care.. I’m so far detached from that relationship that things like that are no longer a big deal.

I just found it amusing that I finally saw him there..

Anyway.. I got one thing done of my list of goals this year.. and we are only three months into this new year..

Looks like this maybe be a good year.. let’s keep praying that’s so!

Here’s a little tidbit I don’t think many know about me..

When I was little.. my parents asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.

I told them I wanted to be a waitress at McDonalds..

A waitress at McDonalds.

Hahaha.. they don’t even HAVE waitresses at McDonalds.

Maybe I meant “cashier..”

Most kids say.. doctor.. lawyer.. fireman.. singer.. dancer..

I said waitress.. at McDonalds.. a place that doesn’t even have waitresses..

I really knew how to aim high.. I guess bacteriologist at a veternarinary diagnostics laboratory comes close to what I wanted.. who knew?

I’m running out of ideas for blog entries.. I’d love it if someone who was reading this would add a question in the comments.. get me going on something to write about..  I am struggling for something to write and I don’t want to be the type of blogger that rambles about aimlessly.

I’ve done that so many times on other blogs.. it’s not that fun..

I guess I can revisit a past blog entry.. Oh, the places I will go..

According to that entry.. it mentions Las Vegas.. Disneyland.. Solvang.. Comic-Con.. a cruise.. and going out of state..

Looks like I’m working my way through the list..

I have plans for Vegas.. so I’m not going to mention them here because I really don’t want to jinx anything..

I went to Disneyland again a few days ago.. I think I’m up to.. two visits.. OT took me for V-day weekend.. and I took Mom on Sunday..

Solvang looks like a lost cause this year.. I don’t know if I want to waste three hours of driving for Solvang.. or three hours of driving for Vegas..

Comic-con comes later in the year.. so we’ll see about that..

A cruise may have to wait due to some saving up of money.. need the money.. need the money.. need the money..

And out of state.. well.. I did just come back from Arizona.. so that totally counts!

See.. I’m chuggin’ along!

I know you are all dying to see some of the pictures my Las Vegas adventures, but I do these blogs at work, and I can’t upload my pictures on to my work computer.

It’ll have to wait until I have time to upload the pictures, and post an entry at home..

Let’s shoot for this weekend.. cross your fingers!

There’s been a lot going through my mind.. random things mostly.. stress.. a yearning..

I’m wanting to do so many things and I know there isn’t enough time in a lifetime to accomplish them all.  Sometimes that makes me discouraged.. other times.. it makes me feel determined.

Right now I just feel complacent.  Work.. home.. school.. work.. home.. school..

I know that I’m just chugging along and finishing my MBA  program.. by December I should be done.  I’m already halfway through my first class of the year.  The time is flying by. 

Things will change up eventually.  Once school is done I’ll have free time to do things again.  I’ll be able to schedule things again.  I’ll be able to have a life again.

These are the things I knew I had to sacrifice going back to school.  I chose to go back anyway. 

Feeling stuck in one place just doesn’t feel good to me.  I feel stuck.  I don’t like feeling stuck.. I want to move.  I want the freedom to go where ever without having to worry about homework or deadlines and due dates.

I keep thinking to myself that this is the home stretch.. it’s pretty much all downhill from here.. it’s a countdown to the number of classes I have left.. I’ve gotten over the hump.. and it’s just a downward slide to the degree..

Then.. my life can begin.. and I can make those life altering changes comfortably.. even though I’m not sure how I’d fare financially..

Let’s just not think about it too much right now..

It’s January, and it’s time for to set some goals for the year.  Ok, maybe these are goals in the traditional sense.  It’s more like a list of places I want to go to this year.  This will be fun, so that I can look at this again at January 2010 and see if I did go to these places.

Who knows.. maybe I can drag OT to these things.. it could be fun..

Las Vegas
I want to go here more than once this year.  I’m going in a week and a half.. so I’m halfway there!

Disneyland
I have a Premium Annual Pass, which means I have no blackout dates and can go anytime I want.. lets shoot for at least FIVE times this year..

Solvang
I’ve never been, so I’d like to go.  I heard there was golf around there, so I could possibly entice OT into going with me..

Comic-con
I am not a comic book fan, but I am a huge LOST fan, and there are usually panels from the LOST writers.  I’d love to see one. .. and it’s in the area that OT lives in.. that’s always a good reason to go down to see him..

Some sort of cruise
I’ve never been on a cruise.. 2009 seems like a good year to start..

Out of state
Well.. Vegas does count.. but I usually see more California license plates so I hardly see that as “out of state..”

Well.. that’s all I can really think of right now.  Ok.. so I set the goals a little low.. and easy to attain.. it makes me feel somewhat accomplished once I do those things. 

It’s also a hard year for me to go crazy on the traveling plans.  Maybe next year, when I’m done with my MBA..
