So I may not need to work on Monday! Well.... not for 4 hours, at least.

My boss has been acting weird with the schedule lately, and even though I wrote him a letter telling him about my vacation (he's in in the mornings and I come in at night, so I don't see him much) he has messed it up...

On Friday, I was supposed to be covering for someone, but he put me on the schedule, then crossed me out... but then added me again. I was confused, but went in anyway, and they did need me, so that was good. But then he didn't have me down for Monday night, even though I said I was leaving Tuesday.

So I don't have to go in, but I talked to my coworker, and she said she could use the help from 5-6, and the person who is supposed to be covering for me is going to be alone from 6-7, so if I could come in to help her, and I can stay or leave after that. So I'm probably going to leave after that to go finish everything that needs to be done. We're ALMOST THERE!!!! Soooo excited!

2 days!!!!!!
In Liberty Square, where they have the building fronts with just door after door, stop and take a look at them. The addresses on the doors are all two numbers. If you put 18 in front of them, that is the style of door they would have had for that year.
There are no bathrooms located in Liberty Square, in keeping with the time period of that area.
In Liberty Square, look down at the main walkway (which is also the parade route). Instead of just plain cement, there's also an area a couple feet wide that goes all the way down the walkway and looks like a brownish/yellow gravel. The gravel area represents the urine trough.
Look at the 2nd story windows in Liberty Square. One has a rifle and another has 2 lanterns for "1 if by land, 2 if by sea.”

So I have kept bugging my mother, as an early birthday present, to give me some money to take to Disney with me.... and she kept going "We'll see, we'll see." So finally, I dropped it.

However, as I have mentioned somewhere, she told me I need to clean my room before I leave on the plane. And she has repeatedly told me this. And this morning I found out why....

She had "hidden" (in plain sight) a note saying Happy (early) Birthday, with some money for me to take!

Now I see why she told me to clean my room... Whoops...

Alright everyone - it's the last day!

1 day!!!!!!!
The frontage of each country is exactly the same, as is the height of their tallest feature (e.g., mountains in Canada, Eiffel tower, etc.). Some spread out inside more than others, but the frontage on the walkway is the same. They wanted to make sure everyone was equal—forced perspective is what makes some look taller.

In Norway, the roof has grass growing on it! Horticulture CMs get up on the roof and trim the grass with clippers since they don’t seem to have a goat to keep up there as they do in Norway.




So I think we're done shopping and everything.... I bought a new SD card (4 gbs for 15$, which was better than the 20 for 2 I was seeing at other places) which will hold over 2000 photos.... I think I'm all set now!

Lou got new sandals (which he tried to make me think were Crocs... then let me down... ) and shorts. He's packed, he says.. but we're going to go over everything before he comes over, just in case. I think he's good to go though.

I went to bed at midnight last night, and got up at 6 (it was supposed to be 5) so that I'd be really tired tonight and go to bed as soon as I get home, so I can be up at 5 tomorrow to head out. My ME tags are attached, one bag is packed, and one bag is almost done being packed - just need the things I'll use today.

Good thing is that I still am in a sense of "is it happening?" Therefore, I'm not going to be up all night - unless I get a shock of reality today. (By the way, I'm wearing a Disney shirt to work today! Alice in Wonderland. It's not coming with me on the trip.)

Alright everyone, I will be on tonight, but I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to check during the day today.


Have a magical day!

Thanks! I'll try. Even on vacations, I can't get away from scrapping...
The amount of pictures I want to take to use all the pieces I get is going to be insane...

And yay for ADRs! I still don't feel like it's real.... I am, as you can tell, confused.

I know we're going, and I'm excited... but I'm not.. excited? Like, when I found out that we were upgraded to SSR, I freaked out, and was excited then. But now I'm like "oh, ho-hum, we're leaving in 20 hours." Well, that was a little exciting.. maybe there's hope for me yet!

I wonder if I overplanned?
I've gone over what we can/could/should do so many times, that I still think it's all just getting planned, and not actually happening?

I apologize for the self-analysis.. this is what happens when you read a Psych major's pre-trip report!


Oh well. Not long now!

I've laminated the LGMHs and my touring plans, so now I think I want some breakfast. I am not feeling well still, but I think it's because I haven't eaten since dinner, and I've been up for three hours already. I can't get sick!
