Various Vacations

Sorry to be late to post again today...this work thing is making me all busy lately. What the crap is that all about?

Anyway, the interview went pretty well, I think. It was actually pretty long. School #2 is quite different than school #1, even though they are probably usually considered to be sort of similar. They are really close to each other and tend to battle each other in US News and other important rankings of these things. But the atmospheres are really different. School #2 is definitely more intense, at least at the undergrad level. The graduate business schools are likely more similar than the undergrads.

I'd be really surprised if I didn't get into #1. A little less surprised if I didn't get into #2, although I still expect to get into both. Should hear in a month or so...fingers crossed anyway:-)

I chatted with Tinkerbelle last night, and she is counting down the days until vacation, as am I:-). Looks like I am going to head to Chicago on that Friday to meet her, stay overnight and then fly with her to Orlando on Saturday. We will stay there until Wednesday morning, and then rent a car and drive to Jupiter on Wednesday. That gives us three full days in Disney, which should be enough for this trip. Munchkin and Smoking Hot Roommate (and maybe some others) are gonna meet us on Thursday night and stay until Sunday, at which point we will all head home.

I think it sounds like a great vacation, and I am really excited. I have made essentially the same exact trip with Munchkin twice, and I am really excited to do it with Tinkerbelle this time. She is gonna love it, I hope!

In the meantime, though...skiing this weekend. I am likely to take charge of all of the cooking again...any ideas on what to make for three adults and five teenagers? Chili, pizza, spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna have all worked in the past...and lots of cookies and brownies:-). All thoughts are encouraged...

You lucky little monster; I want to go somewhere too!

I think tacos are a good group meal as well - pick and choose what you want and easy to make! Maybe with a bit of chips, guacamole and salsa as well. Just my encouraged thought!

You are going to have so much fun in FL! At least it will be warm. I'm sure Tink is super excited! Is it her first time at DW?

Italian wedding soup...easy, filling and feeds a bunch of people. Add salad and some crusty bread and you will be so happy...
