Going in 5 days and getting nervous!!

Just want everything be right! I want to make sure I pack everything we need, hope the weather isn't completely rubbish etc etc!!

My brain in frazzled
Anyone got any advice to keep me sane for the next 5 days? I will be working tomorrow until Friday and then that it's it! Final packing-finishing everything off day on Saturday and then that's it! We fly at 12:45 on Sunday afternoon!!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek

well, you're not going to the moon, so if you forget anything, you can always buy it there!!
so try not to worry too much..

the only thing you really really really really MUST take with you to the airport is yourself, the rest of the family, some money/debit/credit cards, drivers license (if you're driving there) and your PASSPORTS!!...
(and any medicine you really have to take - though you could probably replace that in a pinch too)...

the rest you can buy in florida - so don't worry too much!!

i do the very same thing - and i'm sure we all do..

i try to remind myself that i can buy it all there if i have to....it sometimes helps (though not always).

another thing i like to take - all my confirmations printed out - i carry them in my carry on....
and a page with all the telephone numbers and addresses i might need..

but really, you can buy most things there...

I love writing lists......I keep one by my bed and if I wake up worrying about something I write it down otherwise I don't sleep properly in case I forget what woke me up the following morning etc.......lists are great.....

I'm the same, we have 3 weeks and I THINK we have everything sorted but I have a horrible niggly feeling I've forgotten something really important!

I'm in panic mode and I'm not entirely sure why! lol

Three weeks ago I was ok, it's just now it's so close and I almost want to stop time, make sure I have everything and then continue the countdown,

We leave the house tomorrow morning at 6.30am - I am in FULL panic mode!!

I'm listening to music at the minute, just sorting through some last minute things and de-cluttering my bedroom, trying to remain calm

I'm such a worrier
