OH MY GOSH! I leave in less than 2 weeks.

I've been excited up to now, but today I'm feeling anxious. Maybe do a few things off my to-do list I'll feel better. The kids are all packed except for socks, need to buy some more. Dh and I are not packed yet because we don't have enough clothes lol. I could pack the toiletry bags and ring the banks to let them know we'll be away. I just rang and confirmed accommodation. What else can I do?

Spring for the Thorlo's socks with Coolmax technology. Your family (and their feet) will thank you. They are anti-blister, comfortable, and durable which make them perfect for touring theme parks all day.

They look great, but for $15 pair I don't think I can afford it for 6 people. $60 for 4 pairs of socks. My hubby won't thank me. lol I might look for them at the outlet stores over there though.

Sending Pixie dust - I'm sure in a few days they will be back to normal.

I went looking at the socks - perhaps I shouldn't have! I want them too! But they add up quickly.

3 pair of socks each would cost me about $270, I ended up finding enough pairs in the folding basket and it cost me nothing. The socks do look great though and I remember the aching feet after a big day at the parks all too well. My little ones fever is gone and she's perking up a little. Yay.
