[It's me again

.....starting another PTR....but this one is very different from my last two. I am going.......ALONE!! No hubby & no kids.....doesn't seem right, considering I spend 24/7 at home with them. We've always looked forward to these family trips.....so why am I going with out them?? I'm finally going to go to the Dis Diva's Girl's Only Trip. This is their 4th year & I've been following the thread since right before their 2nd trip in 09.

I actually got to meet a few of them in person during their 2nd trip......my hubby took the pictures of their group shot with their Dole Whips for Bawb & I got to be included. We were there for our 25th Anniversary trip & had coordinated to meet up with them. Here's a picture from that morning:



Our time together was short, but it definitely got me fired up to want to join them next time. Well next time came earlier this year & I didn't get to go.....
So I was determined to not let yet another year go by with out me joining them......I dug my heels in & got involved....so I HAVE to go!! So here's the plan:

The trip is March 3-7, 2011. So in the spring, I'll be in Disneyland with the DIS Divas.......making me an official Diva!!

So there's the start & more to come as we move forward!!

That will be the strangest part of the whole trip........I'll probably feel a bit lost with out them.....but it will also be very relaxing. A good way to recharge my engine!!

This trip is going to be so different.....we always drive, partly because we could never afford flying for our large family & I'm deathly afraid of flying.........this upcoming trip, since I no way want to drive 17 hours by myself & I don't want to drive in the LA area.....I'll have to fly!! I'm already freaking out about it!! I have flown twice on commercial planes & have never had anything to do with buying the tickets & being in charge of the check-in......so I'm totally lost at what I need to do. I haven't purchased my tickets yet.....procrastinating.....still hoping to win the lottery so I can pay a limo driver to drive me to DL !!

I'm looking at Southwest......partly because they don't charge for luggage......I mean hello......traveler's needing a suitcase or two.......say it ain't so! I can't believe the airlines charge for you to take a change of clothes!! Crazy!! Right now it looks like $134 each way is my cheapest price....but I have to purchase from the website & they're non-returnable or changeable. So when I buy them, I better be 1000% sure, that I actually will get on the plane!!

Tomorrow I'll get into the motel choice(s)!!

I just have to say, I'm the one with the lime green mickey ears! You should post the pick of you and your roomie-to-be too!

I'm so excited to be hanging with you this year, Laurie! We'll have a great time! Don't worry about feeling weird without the kids. You'll be too busy having fun to be mising them! We will run you ragged. Take long walks to prep yourself!

You sound like me in the flying department... being deathly afraid, that is. My biggest issue is with turbulence. Hate it, hate it, hate it. It terrifies me. When my husband and I flew to Disneyland in the spring I actually put bruises on his arm. I worried a lot about flying by myself home from DL a couple of weeks ago. (I also worried about the poor stranger(s) next to me! How would they react to some strange/scared woman randomly bruising their arm with each bumpity bump of the plane?) Anyway, eventually I figured out that if I closed my eyes and actually pretended I was on a roller coaster-type ride at DL, the turbulence didn't bother me. Sounds silly, I know. I had to keep my eyes closed in order for it to "work" -- but I was so calm after finding something that worked for me. After all was said and done, I realized I spent far too much time being all worked up before my solo flight. I hope you can find a way not to worry too much about it.

Thank You!! The last flight I took was to Hawaii in 2003......I had to take a sedative.....that won't be an option this time, since I'll be by myself. We had a problem on our return flight. We were on the Big Island & had to fly to Honolulu on Oahu & then catch the flight home. The sedative worked just perfectly on our way there, but because we had an extra short flight on the way back.....my sedative ran out about an hour before we would land. I was saying....."It's time to get off, we should be home, I need to get off, etc. etc." My hubby almost had to sit on me to keep me in my seat. It wasn't good........... Hopefully with this being a shorter flight, I can keep my composure & not totally freak out the entire plane......lol
