I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I will keep both you and his family in my prayers.


I'm at the 3 week mark. Today's goal: work on shirts, autograph book, & planner. I'm free all day....guess I better get going!

Pop looks like it will be busy....I'll be there also.

ammeador2: so sorry for your loss...prayers for you and the family.


We are going Oct 23-31 !! Staying a FW. Going are: me, DH, DD(9), DS(17), my mom. Also meeting us there... but staying off site are my in-laws. We are doing AK, EP and MNSSHP... and for the first time adding Universal Islands of Ad. (in place of MGM) I can't get any work done because I'm too excited to think about anything other than our trip!!!! Thanks to this board, I've had this best time putting together our Disney binder.

My heart goes out to their loss<3 Life is fragile. We should enjoy every moment that we can.

On topic: I'm still up in the air as to whether or not I'm going to make my own treat bag or not. I'm an adult so I'm not sure I wanna hog extra candy if mine ends up slightly bigger than what they give you. Any thoughts?

Thoughts and prayers to your friend's family, ammeador.

I'm doing the 30-day dance today!


That doesn't go without some of this though:


Yesterday I checked our flight times. Everything is the same.

Today I need to re-check park hours, and call the kennel to confirm ddog's reservation.

I just noticed my ticker says 1 month, 1 week, 1 day! Still feels far away for me, but I just realized we're already over half way through September, so it's not so far afterall!

Ammeador so sorry to hear of your loss. SO unfair.
My best friend was killed 18 months ago on her way home for the weekend in a car crash. She was almost 28 and was teaching 3 hours out of town. Would drive in on Fri to be with her FH. My oldest and her were very close. She was her godmom and it has been a hard year and a half for us and her family and everyone who loved her. My 7 year old really went on an emotional road in the months that came after her death. Still having a lot of issues with it and speaking to a professional. Half the reason for this first trip to Disney for my family is to have some kid fun It is nice having something to look forward 2 and forgot a little just how sad some other things are in our lives. Sorry you lost a friend.

For those who have received their vouchers (the book with the luggage tags, planet hollywood etc.) when is your check in date? I really want this book before I get there so I can use the luggage tags.
I got my tags like I said but there are no vouchers...? Does that come to us also with the tags or a second mailing? Or do I get it when I get there?
I got a magical express book with our flight stuff wrote on it and the yellow tags. I read somewhere about a mini golf something and also the Planet Hollywood. Curious...

I have mixed feelings on this. I bought DD a bag at the Disney Store, but am not 100% sure I want to use it. I mean, realistically how much candy will she really get? And more importantly...who is going to carry it?! In the end, I might just use the bags they give us for free and use the Halloween bag I bought as a regular shopping bag. You can get more than one bag at the candy stops if yours gets filled. (of course, then you have 2 bags to carry)

I spent all day working on the book part of DD's autograph book. In the end, I am not sure I like it. Sometimes I hate being a perfectionist! Once she is in bed, I have to look at it again and decide what I am going to do. I still need to print the pages and print out the planner book. Oh yeah, and the tshirts. I'm not making a lot of progess here.

Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. I apologize for going off topic this morning but my happy mood was burst when I saw what had happened and I could not bring myself to be cheery about Disney!

Anyhoo, today I may order my groceries, I have the kids autograph pages printed, just waiting on covers and then I need to get them bound at Kinkos, still need to get ponchos for me and DH, I need to start packing..I am so not looking forward to this (I am afraid that I will see that I can't fit into last years shorts!!)

Wow time has flown by! A new update, our flight time was changed by Airtran, but the good news is that we are now coming a night earlier! So we'll be at Pop on Oct 3 - Oct 10 =D

I'm soooooo excited about Disney! Kinda nervous about going to two airports to get there. We haven't been to an airport for a long while and normally we had adults that knew where to go (lol).

So sorry to hear this. So hard to lose someone so young with a family. My DD is almost that age with 2 children. It's very heartbreaking.

I think that is my problem, he was my age and his kids are close to my kids age 4 and 2 adn I was trying to imagine explaining to my kids that daddy wasn't coming home, or he telling them that I wasn't coming home..very heart renching! Brings me to tears every time!
