You made me tired just reading all that. I understood what you meant about match.com! I would need three days of downtime just to make up for what you have to do before you leave!

Your fligt to Pensacola sounds interesting! Pensacola is the home of the Blue Angels -- keep an eye out! Growing up, my dad had his private pilot license so have spent a lot of time flying in small planes. It was a lot of fun (and much quicker than driving places) but can understand if you don't like flying, how a bigger plane would feel more secure!

On a side note, we are also planning a late June DLR trip! Although, I keep going back and forth if we should go at spring break. The weather has been unbelievable these last couple of months in Seattle but soon enough, the grey and drizzle will return. I have no sun breaks planned until Disney in June. Yikes!

Please tell me how to prepare myself for a small plane? I'm guessing its a little cooler as far as scenery but more bumpy? The bumpy scares me. That's cool he was a pilot. Did you get to fly all over? Blue Angels? Neat! We have a local air show here and the Angels always open it up; they're unreal.

I don't know but it seems that the stuff hits the fan the week before a trip? Went to the Apple Store and of course they forget to put my screen protector back on the new phone, the old one was not fixable, so now I'm without a protector. I swear I'm not a Negative Nelly but this is frustrating. The Apple Store said I can drive back down and get it or call Apple Support. I called Apple Support. They're sending me out a new protector. It won't be the same as the one I bought from AT&T but it'll be comparable. 26 minutes later. I'm going to need a vacation to recoup from preparing for my vacation.

Does it rain a lot in Seattle in June too? Are the winters harsh? Spring Break is a great time weather wise but it's so hit and miss with crowd levels. Have you stayed at the GCV?

And hey....Jeff and I met on match. As did my brother and his wife lol!

Don't do it. My phone was not fixable and I had to get a new one which lead to another headache (see above).

Girl, I'm fried already. I'm trying to talk the kids out of decorating for Halloween. At this point, we'll enjoy it for 10 days and be gone for 13.

That's one busy list of last week things to do. Hope you get it all done and yet manage to stay relatively sane.

Not long to go now.

Which model do you have? I will definitely hold off on the update, do not have time to deal with that kind of fiasco. Spent the last 2 hours trying to get my laptop to work, it wouldn't open up my email. Spent an hour Friday on the kids mac with other similar issues regarding updates so they could get into their various match and science homework sites and have the videos actually load.

UGH.

I've never had a screen protector on mine, nor has Jeff and they are both fine so I wouldn't worry about that too much.

Which was needed as our appliance warranty info is in there and our fridge is having major issues so I need to call them.

2 hours later, in to the email, got the contract and...

they are only open 8-8 EST.

I'm not sure about Miss Kitty's spring break dates but ours is off peak due to weird testing schedules so we generally miss crowds as a result, if we actually go. Which makes it appealing versus early july. E's aren't even out of school till soemthing like 6/21.

June can be soggy. May is usually lovely to tease us and then June sucks. Summer starts July 4th.

It came a day early last year, she and I celebrated it on my PTR if memory serves.

Fall has been GORGEOUS here, so much so we did a spontaneous getaway to our cabin last night. Indian Summer rocks!

I'll PM or FB email you my cell, we should trade nubmers for coordinating.

Got quite a bit completed today thank goodness. The only other snafu was DS's Mike Wazowski iron on for his costume. I did it today and its peeling on the edges. Realistically he's only going to wear it at MNSSHP. I emailed the lady making our arrival basket....I'll post some pics of the basket...to see if she could find a Mike W shirt. If not, no biggie.

Packing lists are finished.

Single digits baybee!!!

We need to trade cells. I've got Jen's and of course Jenna's. Poor Jenna has been stuck in the woods all weekend. No cell, no internet, no nothing, just family goodness.

I have the 4s. Apple is great and they gave me a new one, no questions asked its just a pita to have do deal with it all. iOS6 is on this one though so they much have done it at the store.

I saw your FB pic. Love a good fire. And wine. Fire and wine are good. Did you got to relax?

I'm sorry you've been having computer issues. Especially when you're trying to accomplish work and the kids are doing school work. We finally got Michael his own iPad as the kids needed the Mac. They need their own computers but it's not in the budget to buy 2 more MacBooks, thats for sure. I refused to jail break my iPad to get Flash etc but it can be done and the iPad can get all of the PC programs too. We've got a dusty PC.

Did you get the fridge warranty? Hows it acting up? Will they be open tomorrow due to the *holiday*?

Do your kids have school tomorrow? Mine do, Jenna's don't. I think Jen is off from teaching. I can't tell if tomorrow is a real holiday or not.

You will have a great flight, I am sure! Back then my dad usually flew Cessna's (usually 4 seats) and the farthest I went with him was Seattle to Southern Oregon/Medford.

A girlfriend and I were flying from Palm Srings to LAX to connect to Seattle about 15 years ago. The plane in Palm Springs was so small that we entered thru the cockpit -- the pilots actually stepped out of the plane onto the tarmac so the passengers could board! No flight attendant on that flight! Lol!

I don't have a screen protector on my iPhone either....I don't like the "feel" of them. DH does have a protector on his but swears the only way to put them on without air bubbles is to have someone at the Apple store take care of it.

The weather in Seattle from November to June is grey....with some rain and lots of drizzle.

Like Cynthia, my kids have spring break in April (starting the second week). With this upcoming trip, we want to try to balance days at Disney with relaxation/beach/pool time. I know about June "gloom" but figure the weather will be a bit warmer of we wait a couple of months.

No, we have not stayed at the GCV -- although I would love to! I have reservations for Hojo's because my kids love the water park there! I checked into the Disneyland Hotel for June and it was around $500(!) a night. Yikes!

And I remember that Cabo trip!! Like I was there! It does look gorgeous- have to put it on my someday list....

$500 a night for the Disneyland Hotel? No way Jose! We love the HoJo. Last time we were there the pirate pool wasn't built. I remember their service being stellar. And right next to Mimi's makes it perfect. Lots of folks complain about the walk but I don't think it's far, maybe 7-10 minutes.

The good thing about June gloom is that it burns off. I'm from So Cal, about 15 minutes from the beach. June is beautiful and warmer than April though my nutty kids swim in the Pacific in December. June is nice too because they generally don't close many attractions during the summer.

Your DH is right about the protectors. I had the AT&T guy put mine on and he used what appeared to be a tiny window scraper to get any bubbles out. I'm a spazz with my phone so I need the protector. I'd get an otter box but they're just too bulky. Maybe bubble wrap?

Through the cockpit? And flights with 4 people? Holy! DH said our plane probably won't have a flight attendant. What a neat experience to have with your dad.

cute friend!

We'll eat by the pool but grill by the courts, that's if DH doesn't get eaten by a huge gator or bug of some sort. I'm so excited for Kidani. Hope the 5 mile, I mean minute, walk to Jambo doesn't do us in either. Have you done the night vision goggles or Mix n Mingle? Storytelling? I told Michael after his 3 trips to Africa, AKV might be a little dull but hey, at least he won't need Malaria pills after or shots before.

We're so super excited for AK at night. Like seriously, canceled our date night excited. Haha!

Finally indeed. I'm tenacious if nothing else. I posted my Nantucket pics on FB if you're interested. Wow is all I can say. It's amazing. I can't describe the feeling, it's like nothing else. It's like your heart is full the entire time.

I've been lurking on your Hawaii report. What a beautiful place. One day. Was it as fabulous as it looks? Michael says the sunsets are unreal.




Here are my basket pics. Hope they enjoy it:

Thank you! If they don't enjoy the baskets, I'll keep the baskets and ship the kids your way. Its chock full of goodness too. Personalized blankets for the kids, vinylmation, bracelet for Gab, sketch pads for the girls, coffee mugs for DH and I, Halloween plush....should be a good time. They're getting them when we check into AoA. I thought about not giving them until our first THV villa night but I like giving an arrival gift.

Hi Jenny! Our trip was great! Everyone had a great time and the look on my nieces faces when they saw the castle was priceless! There was no screaming or yelling - just mouth wide open and eyes as big as saucers! It made me cry! They had a great time at the Bippity Boppity too, then we had lunch right after at the castle. My youngest - Natalie - had her Snow White dress on and when Snow White came to the table, she just about passed out! It was incredibly awesome! Even with the large group we still managed to like each other at the end of the trip

I'm so excited for your trip! I was just catching up on your plans, wow! I can't wait to hear all about it. I'm interested in your thoughts too at the AoA. It looks so cool and I hadn't heard about the underwater sounds in the pool - how cool!! I love the baskets, what a great idea! You have made this a trip of a lifetime with such wonderful memories in the making!

I just booked today our trip for next year. We are going with my other BFF and her family, but they are staying off-site in their RCI share. We aren't planning on being together every day so it will be nice and relaxing. Jay and I are in a 1 bdrm Std View at AKV (which is our home resort) but I'm contemplating moving it at 7 mos to possibly the BCV or BWV's. We'll see. There are two things on our agenda though, for sure - the Backstage Magic 7 hour tour and the Wild Africa Trek.

How are you coming with all of your To Do's?

Packing lists are finished.

The baskets are adorable! I have the 4S as well, the ios5 update wasn't an issue but based on your experience, going to hold off on the 6 until after the trip. Can't deal with the phone freezing on me between now and then or worse, there!

Kids have school today however we had bus drama today. Evan only takes the am bus on Monday's and I swear it's something every Monday morning! Today it was a sub bus driver who apparently was lost. Poor kid was having a total melt down.

I PM'd you my number on FB.

It was a spontaneous road trip on Sat. Kind of neat, I had sat out my other girls trip and was a little bummed. Friday my parents had their annual Oktoberfest party which we were thinking about skipping (as we'd be the only ones with kids), ended up going and had a wonderful time. Sat, as we were picking up Evan from his trombone lesson and commenting on the gorgeous day, his teacher mentioned he was going on a road trip with his mom and girlfriend.

Jeff goes

"we should go on a road trip"

And so, we did!

We hadn't been to our cabin in a couple of years and it was really nice to sneak away there for a night, very relaxing.

The computer thing has been a nightmare, had major printing issues last night with kids homework. UGH! That was the printer, not the laptops. I hear you on needing multiple laptops for kids. Ours have to share one MacBook as well and Jeff and I have PC laptops that are barely limping along. An iPdad won't really meet our needs but we are hoping that the Surface, the pro version, when it comes out, will. Question is if we can wait until then.

Fridge is dead. DEAD. They can't come out until tomorrow. Couldn't call to schedule until this morning of course as they were closed yesterday. I did find our extended warranty. If it is fixable, it's covered. If not...we will get some $$ towards a new one but not enough to cover a new one. Pray it's fixable. I think it's the compressor but we will see. Thank goodness we have a backup one in the garage.

I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

5 days until WDW!!!



I'll be back later to respond ladies but didn't want to miss my countdown.


Today's pics are some of my favorites from our first trip to WDW in 2007. As you can see there was a lot of kissing and hugging going on. Love Captain Jack planting one on Gabby.















It was during the YOAMD and we had so many Dreams and Magical Moments. Eileen our main CM gave us a day we couldn't believe from waving in the IASW boats from the podium and announcing our names to watching the fireworks from an empty Astro Orbiter deck, it was unreal. I need to find her picture and post it.
