Yesterday I lost my key card. Even though it has charging privileges I wasn't too upset because I still had the PhotoPass card ( that I forgot to write the number down) that was in the same pocket.

So excited for some of you just getting there or about to get there!!
Hope your feeling better.

They are both fine...however, it was a major accident all cars needed to be towed, one boy went to the hospital by ambulance, ?broken arm but, otherwise walking around at the scene...and according to my DD is now home and tweeting about it on Twitter.
My DD was driving my car, which is now not drivable. So, work was immediately stopped...I took off to the accident...hugged them both and didn't want to let go. The police gave me a copy of the report, called the insurance, called the tow company, called the autobody shop. I then resumed work...and just finished. Tomorrow...instead of working, I'll need to go to the tow yard, have the car towed to the autobody, let the adjuster know where the car is...and hope he can appraise it tomorrow so, that the autobody can start the repairs; go to the police station and the RMV...and hope that all of this is all set before we leave. I am truly counting my blessings that all parties are fine. However, I am so frustrated that I have done very little for a week after being sick...and NOW I have to take care of this...and we are down one car...and we leave in 60 hours.
So sorry but glad they are ok!

Quick update to our first day... We had a few hiccups but all in all it was a wonderful day.

As we came thru the Disney gates DD got sick. We got her all fix and checked in with no issues. We also think it was just the fact she had milk with no food on her stomach and it was hot.

Got our room about 30 minutes after checking in. Keys didn't work. They fixed it and sent us new cards just in case.

We went to lunch at Les Chef de France, checked in early and were seated within 5 minutes. As soon as we sat down we saw Remy DD loved him and it was awesome experience I did forget to take a pic tho.

We did a few things then came back to the room early. I did laundry from earlier fiasco and we were all asleep by 9 pm.

Hope everyone is great, safe travels to those leaving soon. I will post a pic of my bag (I am adding a LGMH to it) and DD stroller tag so if you see us please say hi.





Sorry the pics are so big. Now to see if I can get an hour more sleep.

Luckily we still had our DSLR. If I had lost that I would have lost my mind!

Good morning and safe travels to everyone coming in today :-)

So yesterday we made it from plane to park in just under 3 hours. Loved OL at DHS!! Took tons of photos (in case you haven't guessed yet, I'm just as addicted to my photos as i am to Disney!)

We headed to see the decorations at YC, BC & BWI after DHS, with a stop for dessert at Boardwalk Bakery. Then we went to DTD to shop

Today's agenda is AK, rest at resort, then MVMCP. I can't wait to get to MK!!!

Have a great day!

Psh works.

And so does Dec 12 forever. Lol

In our news, DD11 has strep, not flu. So got her a shot and she should be on the mend.

Good morning everyone! We will be at the airport this time tomorrow! Everyone is crazy excited! Last night I had a dream that I forgot my Disney binder that has our park tickets, photopass plus voucher, ADR numbers, etc. in it. Now I'm afraid going to forget something, lol.

Doing better today than yesterday. I took today off so, it should give me time now, to deal with this new addition to do my already long to-do list. Thanks for your kind words.

Thanks! The girls are fine...physically but, are still really shaken up. I'm sure it will all work out. I will do as much as I can today...and the rest will have to wait until we get home.

LOL! You're right! Thank you for your kind words!

Take care!
I really hope it doesn't come to that! I will get as much done today with the insurance as I can...and the rest will wait until we get home. I would be through the roof if my daughter was tweeting and posting about it! The boy who went to the hospital was tweeting about it. I told my girls not to talk about it at all, today...hope they listen!

I couldn't let go of either of them!!! Truly a mom's worst nightmare...to even imagine the possibilities! They are both doing fine...the car is just a car...even though the insurance thing is a huge headache. But, in less than 48hours we'll be on our way to Disney! I may just turn off my phone for the week! BTW, hug your dog, too...I'm getting sad thinking about dropping ours' off for the week.

Thank you!!! They are ok...DD17 said she was sore and very weepy this AM; DD15 was shaken up but, fine physically. Both said they wanted to throw up when we passed the scene this AM, on the way to school. I told them, "just 6 more hours and you're on vacation!" That made them happy!

I'm sorry, if I missed thanking any of you for all of your kind words!!! Even though, yesterday is a day that would not want to relive again...knowing the girls and the other kids who were in this accident all turned out fine...and coming here and reading all sweet things you all said, was a HUGE comfort!!! I really hope I get to meet you all this week!!

Today is the day! The kids' suitcases are packed and ready to go. Once I put on my make-up and do my hair, mine will be ready. I need to pack my carry-on and the kids' carry-ons.

I forgot to buy a Gorillapod, so I may head out to Walmart after I drop the dog off at puppy camp.

This house is a wreck, so it needs to be cleaned before we go. DH decided to work from home this morning, so he's no help. Guess I'd better guzzle this coffee and get moving!

Morning!!

We leave in 2 days!!! It's hard to believe we started planning this 60 days ago. I think I did fairly well with my ADRs.

I'm almost packed, DBF says he'll pack today.

this is how I'm feeling today..

Don't do it!! Stay there!! Or at least book your next trip!

Now see this is another problem with being invested in so many trips. I worry about people getting sick and having bad weather AND now I am sad about everyone's last days. I am exhausted and it is only Dec 7th!
