3 days left for me!

I couldn't be leaving at a better time...we're forecasted to get SNOW on Friday! That's just wrong since it's not even Halloween yet.
I bought a new purse yesterday for the trip so I can leave my nice purse at home, safe and sound. I also got cash today to put in the Mousekeeping envelopes.

Only a few more small items to pack and I'll be just about done with my to-do list!

We're supposed to get our snow tomorrow night!!! Well, it's ok as long as we don't have to try and drive out of town/state in it. Traveling in bad weather is NOT how I want to start out our vacation! It's a bit too early for this!

Thank you!!!

Hi all....

I am not sure I will have time to get on the boards in the morning. But I just wanted to say Thank you!!!! I have learned so much on these boards, and I know my vacation wouldn't be as magical without all of your help!!!

You will be fine at the water parks. Even high 70's to low 80's is quite warm in the Florida sun and the water will feel great!!

You are sooooooooooooooooooo lucky to have those temps in your forcast!! Our highs last week were 95+ every day with a zillion percent humidity ! Blizzard beach was our favorite day of the whole trip because the water was sooooooooooooo refreshing. We stayed until closing and they had to drag us out of the lazy river !

Have a great trip!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi! I got back Monday night. For all of you who are wondering....yes, it is THAT hot down there! I have never seen 97 degrees with 97% humidity! I'm used to hot and humidity, but not when the numbers are the same.

If you are heading down, try to grab a small fan to use or plan on buying one there. It was a lifesaver for us. Also, remember you can get free glasses of ice water. I paid for a bottle of smart water before I remembered that.

I'll update more later, just wanted to say hi. I hope the rest of the October crew has a great trip!

ACK ~ We leave tomorrow morning and I feel like I have SO much to do today. My husband is working, so it's all up to me... I have to finish packing, clean the house, catch up on laundry, bring the cat to my Dad's... etc etc!

My 2 year old was up during the night crying with a runny nose and a yucky sounding cough. Depending on how she is when she wakes up, we may be squeezing in a doctor's visit as well.

Yesterday I attended a playgroup and a Mom's night out dinner, and after I got home I found out on facebook statuses that 3 of the people we were around were "very" sick. I sat by one of them for 3 hours!!! I better not catch it. Why can't sick people stay home!!??

We leave in almost exactly 24 hours! I am sitting at the computer, waiting to check-in with Southwest.

The kids are going to pack their carry-ons tonight, and I would like to get the downstairs looking really good. I need to mop the kitchen floor, but with it raining outside, I don't know how much good it will do.

I'm taking our dog to the kennel tonight after DH gets off of work. It might be crazy, but I'm thinking of spending an extra $20 a day so he can be in doggy daycare. The thought of him being pinned up in his glass cell all day, looking pitiful, breaks my heart, and causes major mommy guilt! He is such a people-dog! He just turned 2, and we are his third family, so I don't want him to think we have abandoned him.

Whooo, ok, enough for that therapy session!

We are leaving TOMORROW!

I don't think it's crazy at all to spend the money. If it'll make your dog happier, and save you some anxiety over leaving him, I say go for it.
Then again, I'm probably not the best person to ask...my dog pretty much rules our house. I'm very lucky that my IL's take her when we go on vacation. And she rules their house too.
