new plan.  must arrive in florida in time for sunday’s lost series finale.

seriously?  how is lost ending *this* sunday?  have i been living under a rock?   a black rock?

i had no idea it was happening so soon.

dude.   this sucks. there is no tv equivalent, no replacement for lost in my personal must see tv lineup.

so this is it? goodbye, lost?

i’m not ready for this to end.   i’m not done dancing in your deepest oceans.  we were so good together, just like a dream.

nugget and i are hitting the road saturday for our first major road trip.  is this really a good idea?  do sane people drive long distances, cross many states with a three-year old in tow?  please check “yes” or “no.”

as bad as i am about blogging on a regular basis, i will try really, super hard to post ridiculous photos and updates from our journey.  twitter is likely to be the landing spot for most of these tidbits of humor and despair, and i know you won’t want to miss a single bit.  so be sure to follow me or at least check out my twitter feed on the left-hand sidebar.

oh right, you wanted to know where exactly we’re headed to.  why, central florida, of course.  that’s where i was born and raised.  i spent the majority of my formative years playing with and then working for the mouse.  now i happily haul my daughter there to subject her to the media machine immerse her in the culture i grew up in.

nugget’s aunt jenny is playing her first ever orlando show at backbooth on may 25th.  have you gotten your tickets yet?  check out park ave cds – i heard they’ll give you a ticket when you purchase one of jenny’s records!  so come out and join us as we officially celebrate me kicking cancer’s ass.  it will be quite the party. kinda like this one (but sadly without bess rogers).

as africa hot as it is sure to be in florida right now, we’ll still have an excellent time. i’m a native, a pro at avoiding the scorching death rays with which the sun tortures the tourists.

there will be lots of late afternoon trips to the magic kingdom.  we will watch far too many parades and shows, and spend hours making special trips to visit with her “friends” (disney characters).

there will be long walks around epcot’s world showcase with my friends and their tots.  the mamas will enjoy adult beverages while we drink our way around the world and the kids will craft at each of the kidcot stations.  it’s a win-win.

i will don my new, modest i’mamommynow swimsuit and brave a water park or two.  i will most certainly make other mommies to suffer along with me.

we plan to stay until main street electrical parade makes its return to walt disney world on june 6th as part of summer nightastic! i am giddy with delight at the mere thought of sitting with nugget and watching her hear for the first time:

“ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, walt disney world proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination in thousands of sparkling lights and electrosynthomagnetic musical sounds . . . the main street electrical parade!”

nugget just brought the vhs cassette of elp’s farewell season at disneyland into my office.  she’s ready to do her homework.  i’m ready to teach her baroque hoedown.

i’m ready to go home.

nursing on main street while waiting for parade at disneyland

nugget's first ride on casey jr. at disneyland

nugget and i spent the past three days celebrating the end of a successful round of chemo and our return to nursing.  disney doesn’t have a button for that, but we still had a fantastic experience.

our sincerest thanks and gratitude to the new parade cast and characters at the paradise pier breakfast. you all made our celebration absolutely magical.

pictures soon, i promise!

today, nugget and i are at disneyland, the happiest place on earth, with auntie krista, and it is just indeed that.

stitch, pluto and daisy duck welcomed us to the paradise pier hotel this morning. they asked nugget to have breakfast with them tomorrow morning and she happily agreed.

right now, nugget is enjoying high school marching bands and a mickey mouse ice cream sandwich while we wait on castle hub for the new parade, celebrate! a street party, to start.

we met tinker bell and her fairy friend, fawn after lunch. nugget is really looking forward to seeing her fly during fireworks tonight.

we’ll have lots of photos of our celebration to post when we get home, so be sure to check back soon for those!

tomorrow is the day of my, as my friends and i like say, “come to jesus” meeting with my oncologist. nugget and i will be making the trek up to nova and then are spending the night with friends.

i have no idea what the outcome will be from this appointment. maybe i’m done with chemo. maybe not. maybe i’m getting radiation. maybe not. i guess we’ll all find out tomorrow. i’ll be sure to post a quick update from my crackberry once tomorrow evening.

wish me luck. pray for me. chant. do it all, i need whatever i help can get.
