Firefly's just posted her Day 6 Illustrated Itinerary in her PTR.....

This is my departure day from the World. Now I know what I'll NOT be doing. I'm going to have to do my best NOT to be thinking about her day when I leave.

A 'Firming' update.....

I hit the WW scales this week; NOT out of choice but more from necessity. A friend of mine *made* me go; and as I have been pretty relaxed about my eating over the last 6 weeks (due to me being sick), I was NOT looking forward to the experience.

Afterall, for those of us that subscribe to WW, you do realise that WE pay THEM for the pleasure of stepping on scales!

Anyhoo....I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was NOT the weight that I last checked in at...and that I have dropped another 0.3 kg.

YAY ME!

What NOT to shoot

The idea for this post stems from the DisBoard Photography section and I thank photo_chick for the name of this post, which is so in keeping with my NOT PTR.

So, here is my compiled list of shots I will NOT be doing – all in the name of trying to improve my photographic skills.
  1. I will NOT be taking aerial shots of WDW from anywhere, as I have an irrational fear of heights.
  2. I will NOT be taking any photos of ToonTown because it is closed.
  3. I will NOT be taking shots when I am falling in ToT, as I will NOT be trying out this ride.
  4. I will NOT be taking any shots of DH, he will be attending the convention whilst I do my best to have a good time without him.
  5. I will NOT be taking any shots of my DS at WDW and this will make me sad.
  6. I will NOT be taking any shot of internal rides at WDW as I will be too busy having fun and will NOT be thinking about my camera.
  7. I will literally NOT be shooting any animals at AK; however, I do plan on taking shots of them with my camera instead.

That last part made me laugh I think Toontown's still open, though!

I think you're right. I was NOT paying too much attention to the closures when I looked at it!

I am NOT taking over...just giving DH a helpin' hand!

Today was one of those days at work. Where the time just seems to drag..... because there is NOT much work to stretch out. Heck - there was NO work to stretch out.

So, I counted down the days to my NOT not trip. I'm down to 32 days before getting on a plane .
As this trip is DH's work trip, I have made the conscious decision:
  • NOT to overplan;
  • NOT to stress; and
  • NOT to make any travel arrangements (other than my own after DH has arranged his).

But there is only just so much a (not) Obsessive Compulsive Planner like me can take.....and today, I decided that I was NOT taking over.....I was just going to give DH a helping hand in trivial practicalities.

So, I peeked on the convention website.

And what an eye-opener it turned out to be. There are links there, NOT just for booking hotel accommodation and registering for the convention, which DH has done, but also:
  • Booking ME
  • Tickets
  • Convention specially arranged tours
  • On line registration
  • Convention SCHEDULE!!!!

I kinda knew we getting to the boundaries of needing to book Magical Express. We need to book this and provide Disney with at least 30 days notice. I also kinda figured that there was NOT a hope in hell that DH would be organised enough to get on line to do this. So, I helped him fill out the on-line form and put his work email as the contact point.

I also had a look at the Convention arranged Behind the Scene tour and this is something that I know that I do NOT want to do....only because of time or lack thereof for this trip.

I also checked out the Convention Schedule.....and I do NOT think that DH will be joining Firefly, LuvChefMic and myself for dinner on the Sunday night. Potentially, he has about 1.5 - 2 hours to get from CSR to Crystal Palace at MK and back to CSR again. Doable...but DH may NOT think so. I say keep the existing reservation as is and see what happens.

...and there probably is NOT enough time for him to go to MNSSHP on this Sunday night. But he still needs to figure this out for himself.

Convention finishes at 5.30 pm on the Monday; so I think we need to get him an after 2 pm Park Hopper ticket for this night. He could spend time at Epcot; and then hop across to MK to enjoy EMH.

Tuesday night is the convention dinner; so he will definitely NOT be going to Liberty Tree Tavern for dinner with us; but the schedule seems to indicate that he could be finished by about 7.30 pm. There is after dinner entertainment organised....but he could choose to go to MNSSHP after the dinner. I'll have to wait for him to decide if this is what he would like to do....or NOT.

And the best part? There seems to be some early bird discount on Disney tickets on the Convention website. Either this or the website has NOT been updated with the new Disney post August pricing

Well, if it works out that he can't make it to dinner with us, then that's okay

I get to meet you four weeks from Sunday!
