Is right. I said to DH over the weekend I'm getting a binder...I think a red one...know what he said "no binders" - big shock there! But somehow when he said it his face kinda turned into Faye Dunaway in Mommy Dearest and all I could hear was the line changed slightly to "NO WIRE BINDERS EVER!"

Wow - it's been quiet planning wise. Although the evil dreams have started....you know, the ones where your forget your park tickets, or realize your trip is over and you haven't even neem to the Magic Kingdom...hate those!!

We are also still trying to decide either to drive (which means leaving after work and driving straight through) or flying during hurricane season. Even with gas prices the way they are, driving may still be cheaper. Any advice?


BUT - shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...lookie what I finally got





It's just a small one, but hey...I needed somewhere to keep all the papers for reservations and things. At least that's what I told DH!

Fly vs Drive - I think it's settled.

Well - the great fly vs drive debate has been settled..in a moment of weakness (and since it was only $99 each way) I just booked a flight to Orlando! I am the BIGGEST scaredy cat in the world when it comes to flying and will do anything and everything to get out of it. Now I have about four months to talk myself into it -- ugh!

We are also flying out of a new airport for me (Midway) and a new carrier for me - Southwest, AND not taking the first flight back...we are taking a mid-morning flight. So lots of "firsts" this trip!

Can I also just say I'm not thrilled about the "cattle call" and the unassigned seats. We'll see how it goes. BUT - if all goes well we'll arrive early am on Friday (I'll have to try stagemomx3's trick and have a drink once we land and see if that reenergizes me) and then we leave on Monday morning the following week, which gives me 10 whole days in my favorite place which is a good thing. So everyone send that pixie dust my way that I actually get on the plane and not scare the flight attendants like I did on my last plane trip to Disney in 2004.

That's an awesome price!!!

Take advantage of the 24 hour online check in!

Go online at 10am the day before your flight and check everyone in, at least that way you have a chance to be at the front of the cattle shoot and a better shot of actually sitting together.

DD and me flew thru Midway coming home from California last year...it's a pretty nice airport (by airport standards.)

Take the advice of Peter Pan: Think happy thoughts when you fly!

UGH - I wish I could think happy thoughts - I think my heart is already beating faster knowing I have to have a plane ride. And I'll probably set every alarm clock in the house to make sure I'm online at the 24 hour check-in!

Thanks - would love to know...not having an assigned seat almost drove me not to book on SW.
