News and Rumors 9/26/11 - 10/9/11


So, it's been a crazy few weeks!  I had an amazing time in WDW for Epic October weekend!  It was a magical time with great meet ups with amazing friends! Then, right after I came back from Florida, I had to return back to St. Louis to get my belongings to move down to Albuquerque.  My furniture is expected to be delivered on Wednesday.

I appreciate all your patience with the lack of blog posts lately.  I hate not being able to bring you great blog posts, but I literally have not been able to due to all this.  Thank you all so much for your patience!  I hope to return back to normal starting next week, but at this point, I simply don't know.

But you all didn't come here to hear me yammer came here for the dirt...and I've got it!  So here we go!
