Oh so thankful...

You might be wondering where I've been. I've been fighting an epic battle and I'm happy to say that I've won. I won't bore you with all the details but in a nutshell, I almost lost my house. You all know that I lost a job that I loved back in January of 2011 and could not find work until July of 2013. While I am grateful for finding that job, it was no easy task to live on substantially less salary. It was a struggle and that's putting it mildly. I came dangerously close to losing my home and that took a toll on me emotionally. I had not the strength nor desire to blog about anything, really. Well, happily, that battle is over. I have negotiated with the bank, my mortgage has been modified and I get to KEEP MY HOME!

I went to Disneyland the other night. I sure missed it - had not been there in over a month! For me that is an eternity, LOL! Naturally, I didn't plan ahead so I didn't have my camera with me but I did take a few shots with my phone so here they are for your enjoyment.

We heard some music over in Tomorrowland so we stopped to watch and listen for a bit.

And then...we decided to walk over to Adventureland but as we passed the castle, I had to take a shot. Doesn't it look strange surrounded by scaffolding?

While my friends climbed to Tarzan's Treehouse, I waited and people watched. And then I guess you could say I building watched, LOL.

It was almost time for the fireworks to start so I made a hasty exit to ensure that I'd be in my car by the time the fireworks ended!
