I did it. I went out into the freezing rain. The roads actually weren't bad at all. I didn't experience any sliding or anything! I got my hair cut and colored. It's a bit darker than I would have liked. I wanted chocolate brown with gold tones and it looks black! I guess I'll have to wait for it to completely dry to see how it really looks. I always panic after I get my hair cut. I love it long, but sometimes it just needs to be cleaned up. My longest layer was just a mess (all different lengths) so I had to lose 1 1/2 inches to make it all even! It will grow back though. At least it's all nice and pretty for WDW! Now, I have to make appointments for my massage (gift from my DH for Mother's day 08) and for a pedicure. I will be wearing flip flops all week so the toes need to look nice. Flip flops are by far my favorite kind of footwear. Once it hits 40 degrees, I'm in flip flops! I wear them from April to October!

Pouring Rain I hope they are still having fun. being soaked and dashing thru wind gust rain is never too much fun!

It poured the day DD did BBB. We had rain ponchos, we ate dinner at Askershus Princess Norway Dinner, the adult ponch covered her completely ! she loved dancing in the rain.

It's so close...

I know this has probably been talked about already, but I just can't believe my vacation is so close now. All the planning, DISing, worrying, booking, rebooking, unbooking, waiting for codes...its just all been such a crazy ride and its almost over. I know I should be excited because its almost time to go, but I can't help but think...." what do I do when I get home?" Does anyone else feel this way? I'm so happy for everyone who is down there and who is going in the near future. It's been a great ride and I'm so glad you guys kept this thread going for us January Snowbirds. Even my boyfriend makes me check on here and see if there's anything new going on. He even makes me sign in so he can look at my ticker everyday to see how many days are left. A great big thanks to everyone who posted here, I got so many planning ideas and it really helped build the excitement, even though I didn't actually post to this thread, you can be sure that I've been reading everday! So, a great big thanks and good luck to everyone on this thread!!! Have a magical time everyone!!!

I can't imagine my boys "sitting" and doing anything!!!!
Actually, my little guy loves to read, or still at this age, try to read, especially, if the book is about dinosaurs or bugs!!

I feel like such a weeny but I hate ice!

So, here I am, DISing until I can get to work. What a shame!
Not a bad alternative.... I hate driving in snow / ice, too. Last week wehen we were supposed to get that stuff during rush hour, my DH was off work. I asked him if he would take me to work, even though it meant him getting up at 6:30. He's such a sweetie - he didn't even think about it - and said he would. He knows I'd be a wreck before getting out of our subdivision!!

DS9 is doing better. He likes reading his Star Wars books. DS7 is not quite there yet, reading is still "boring" to him!
