I'm with you Sarah! I still have nothing packed and am still cleaning up and reorganizing from this weekend's home construction project. Ugh!

The best I've done is get the suitcases out. Hopefully we'll make some progress Wednesday after work! At least I have until Friday....

Only 4 more days until we leave!!!


I FINALLY started packing last night. We're almost all packed, and boy do we have a lot of crap! I still have to pack toiletries, but the bulk of it is done, thankfully.

5 days and we'll be there!

OMG I seriously can't work, I'm too excited! Shhh, don't tell my boss...

I was able to pack the kids this weekend, so I have that off my list.

The weather forecast is looking much better (and cooler) so I'm excited about that too!

3 days!

We are all packed except for last minute items, bathing suits for DH & I, and the kids' shoes. Also waiting to pack DD's hairbows.

Today she said she wants to be Snow White for Halloween. Nope, we don't have that costume.

My in-laws should be here in about an hour. They are driving to Disney, so they are taking stuff in their car that we don't (or can't) take onto the plane. They are leaving early tomorrow morning to begin their drive down!

I almost had a biiiiiiig biiiiiig boo-boo today. I had a meeting at church this morning, so I took our park tickets and MNSSHP tickets up there with me to photocopy the backs. I went into my meeting room and put the tickets down to get a snack. Evidently two of our park tickets slipped out of the paper I had them in, and fell into my friend's purse! OMG that would have been soooooo bad! Thankfully she found them when she was packing up to go.

I need to get off of here now to do DS's laundry and tidy up a bit (ok, a lot) before my in-laws get here.

Wishing all of you that are leaving soon a fantasmic time!!

My tips from our 10 days in the inferno last week:

Water/fan bottles were a life saver!

Take a wash cloth (keep in a zip lock bag) from the room to wipe your brow/face/upper lip...wet it in drinking fountain for a refreshing face wash.

Extra LATE magic hours were awesome! No crowds, short queues and NO SUN!

BUG SPRAY!!! We were eaten alive! Mostly our ankles, feet and elbows....not sure what was biting us...maybe "no see-ums"????? Not mosquitos.

At the water parks re-apply sunsreen often as it wears off quickly no matter how water/sweat proof it claims to be.

If you are renting a car, don't forget to have some small change/quarters handy for the toll roads.

HAVE FUN!!!!

girl.....you better get on that!! actually....i would probably have been the same way, but I had this whole week off of work! My vacation officially started on Monday!!!

Speaking of which......I am on this Twilight kick. And since I started my vacation on Monday and I have already cleaned the house and packed.....all I want to do is pick up that darn last book and start reading it!! I promised I wouldn't do it until I was on the plane!!! SOOOO.... I just read the first book again...just to take the edge off!! I'm pathetic! I can not wait until I am off this vampire obsession!!!

by the way.....2 more sleeps for me!!!!

still 3 more work days. leave for airport on saturday at 5:00. stop in detroit, then on to FLA. staying at the marriot royal palms. going to all disney parks (AK and DHS share a day) plus typhoon lagoon, and both Universal. The wife is taking daughter to MNSSHP, but I opted out. The princess breakfast on Sunday at MK will be enough for me. Question: Will the water at TL be pretty warm on these 78 degree days i'm seeing, or should we try and alter our schedule to go later in the week.

BTW, any recomendations for foods to try at F&W Festival?

2 days!

My in-laws packed up their car last night, and they are currently on the road to FL!

I have one more load of laundry to do, and one more bathroom to clean. I notified our alarm company of our vacation, and I gave our neighbors our itinerary.

Tomorrow I will clean & vacuum the downstairs and mop the kitchen floor.
