Whee your doing so well! I know you will reach your goal and I know your on vacation but this no shame in getting up early one day to work out. I'm sure your hotel has a running path at the very least or going for a swim before all the kiddes get there would be a great work out too! Because then your not really "working out" per-say your just swimming.

I think my DH is going to hate me for wanting to work out at least three days. But there is a gym at my hotel so I'm at the very least going to get up very early to get a run and some weights in. I can't just not work out. I've learned a very hard lesson from that!
Definitely will be working out....I'll be doing heaps of WALKING at the World

Congrats on the weight loss!
We're doing Illuminations.
I had read about the Wishes Dessert Party and booked Illuminations Cruise in the hope that the WDP would start up.
And then the magic happened .
So, I'm being really diligent on losing weight so that I can put it all back on in just one night at the WDP

PTR May 2010 - An Aussie's Journey - Countdown to May! 10 days to go

10 days to go!

We get on a plane in 10 days time and luckily for us, we're flying over a different ocean and an opposite flight path to where the Icelandic Volcano is erupting.

It's a bitter sweet feeling for me. I'm starting to get excited about this trip but yet have a few friends around me at work that have their European holiday vacation up in the air. I know I'm not to blame; but it just doesn't seem fair that I get to travel and they don't know if they are coming or going.

I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. It seems like the last 2 weeks have just flown by and now this countdown is nearly in single digits.
I am just going to enjoy each day. For me, the best part of a holiday is the planning - and having the planning completed early so that I can savour the last 2 - 3 weeks before the start of the holiday. It's like I just want to slow time down for a little bit (not too much) because once the holiday starts, the end is usually far too close .

Happy 10 days!! I would hate to be one of those travelers coming into or going out of the volcanic area! But safety first right?! Can you believe we're almost there?! I sure can't! I'm in the same boat as you as far as planning goes. I feel like now, all I have to do is pack and just reconfirm everything. I love planning early and relaxing the last few weeks! LOL! It'll be here before you know it!!

I agree. Safety FIRST! It's definitely feeling like it's right round the corner now.

PTR May 2010 - An Aussie's Journey - Countdown to May! 9 days and a great FOREX rate

9 days to go!

Today, the Australian to US dollar foreign exchange rate hit 93.3 cents. Not quite at parity, as it seems to be with the Canadian dollar exchange but for us Aussies...this is a really good rate.

I went to the bank and completed another round of $$ exchange today and I think we finally have enough currency/Travellers Cheques/Cash Cards now....well at least to cover living expenses. Shopping money will be funded from a different bucket

Strangely, when I completed the forex transaction, I started to feel really excited. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that my countdown is now in SINGLE DIGITS??!!

PTR May 2010 - An Aussie's Journey - Countdown to May! 8 days & DH, DS R ready 2 go?!

8 days to go!!



What is it with the male species?? I just don't get it .

I've been living the holiday planning since the start of 2010, which by my calendar means that I've devoted the better part of 4 months in planning, dreaming and scheming. I know some of you reading this spend twice, three times as long with your plans...so you know that going to WDW and having an enjoyable holiday means having to put in some effort in planning.

Okay ... I admit that perhaps I'm a little bit obsessive compulsive and a control freak ... but once I have a game plan, I'm not completely married to it and will be more than happy to go with the flow and not achieve EVERYTHING on my game plan. And if this board is anything to go by, I'm pretty normal by Dis standards

So, today DH and DS decided that they needed to get in on the preparation for the holiday. Are you ready for this?















Get ready....

















What do you think their idea of preparing for this holiday is?


















Guess.....go on........























We need a hair cut before we go....


So, tonight (it's 8.10 pm in Oz) we went to the nearest mall where both DS and DH got their hair cuts. I guess this means that both DS and DH are ready to go.

PTR May 2010 - An Aussie's Journey - Countdown to May! 6 days & time to start culling

6 days to go!

This weekend is the final weekend we have at home before we fly out on Friday (Thursday your time).

I'm already exhausted thinking about having to cull my wardrobe. I really should be doing this a lot more regularly than I do but seem to have gotten into the tradition of clean-out the weekend before a trip to the US.

I'm planning on shopping whilst I'm in the states and am clearing out to make space ... and also to work out what I should buy.

This culling will also be happening in for my DS this weekend.

Oh - You know how we weren't doing a countdown because we didn't want to overexcite DS?
Well, he woke up this morning and told me today was one day to final countdown day.....I asked him what he meant.
He told me that tomorrow we could start the final countdown...5...4...3...2...1...blastoff!
So much for "no countdown" in this household

So here's the 6 day countdown....
