Is it a bad sign for the vacation when you faint on the plane? COMPLETED!

Out of all the pictures that I took on this vacation there is not one good one of just me and DH. This picture is from our Hawaiian Honeymoon in 2006.

Me: MRYPPNS/Heidi (36) SAHM & book keeper, lover of most things Disney.

DH: John (32) Engineer, lover of a few things Disney

DS: Liam (17 months) Toddler, lover of Playhouse Disney

And my surprise announcement is that we had another family member that decided to join us on this vacation without much notice. Now if you see any of my postings on other threads about traveling with family, I always say that I will only travel with people that I can boss around. Well this is the one and only family member that can boss me around…..I don’t have much choice about it, at least for a now.

DBaby: No name yet (currently 14 weeks along), seems to be a lover of Disney food!

Yes I'm pregnant with our second child, they will be 2 years apart....an infant and a 2 yr old toddler....for the love of Mickey what were we thinking??

I get really bad morning, noon and night sickness, along with motion sickness and pregnancy generally makes me really tired so I didn’t know how this would play out with a 10 day vacation to Disney. I’m a huge planner….obsessed you might say. Then I had to cut some touring plans….gone was Tower of Terror, Expedition Everest and the Grey Goose Slushie in France. This would be the second trip in a row that I was pregnant and couldn’t ride Everest! I have never ridden it because it was still under construction when we went in 2005. The bright side is that I will probably be able to ride it before Michelle Duggar! I can’t even write about all the cocktails that I missed out on…..and this is one vacation where I could have used a few!

The days leading up to our vacation were kind of stressful for me. We were flying out on Sunday morning. So I thought I would have all of Friday to pack and such, then Saturday I could stop by my little part-time job to do payroll and then have my pedi.

Well on Friday I ended up having an ultrasound that was re-scheduled from 2 weeks prior. It was a routine ultrasound because of my advanced age (35!). It cut my day right in half. Not only did I have the ultrasound, I had to have blood drawn. I have tiny veins. Thankfully I got a good vampire tech and we chatted about Orlando while she drained enough blood for 6 test tubes!!! (This is the carp that none of your girlfriends tell you about having a baby).

On Saturday the plan was to drive the half hour to my little job, work for about 2 hours and then make it to my pedi appointment by 10:45am. As I was getting ready to go DH was watching the local news and they were reporting that parts of the road where my job is located was closed due to an accident. Talk about stress. I only had so much time to get everything done and this wasn’t a road that is easily detoured around. In the end I had to drive 15 minutes past where I needed to be and prayed that the road was open on the other side. It was! Things were looking up. I got what I need to done and reversed the long drive to my pedi appointment. I had a Lemon-aide pedi…..so nice! Ladies treat yourself to a special pedi at a nice spa soon. It was so relaxing I was ready to leave on vacation right then and there! In hind sight it might have been better if we did leave Saturday afternoon.

Here’s Liam relaxing before our big travel day.
