Hi! I just found your pre-trip report and I'm so enjoying it! You have a beautiful family! We're going to the World just 2 weeks after you and I'm finding myself agreeing with all you're writing....obsessing on the shoes (I have been on a quest it seems for the 'perfect' shoes, is there such a thing?? LOL!), not having enough shorts --- really, I have 3 pairs I like to wear and that's it...guess I need to buckle down and do some serious shopping.

I can't wait to read about your trip, have a great time!!

Thanks for stopping by! and thanks for the compliments, too! The Crocs should arrive tomorrow or Saturday, according to FedEx tracking - wish me luck! I think I'm set myself with the Tevas, and no one at the mall today had the Croc Mary Janes for me to try on. Otherwise, I bet I would have brought some home!

Hi, Jo! Thanks for coming by! I think the TR is only so long because I treat it much more as a "this is my daily life" than actual trip planning. The moose sighting, and the high school joiner theories really probably don't belong here, but oh well...

We are at 10 days today, but if I use V's FDM, it's more like a week. Today doesn't count, or the departure day, plus we have two weekends and a "pre-school graduation" in there that surely remove waiting days.

I'm just jealous of your long trip. DH decided that only a deluxe resort would do, which was fine, but budget and vacation day scheduling then put us to a short trip, which now just does not feel like enough!

I did start packing some today, though, since the 91 degree weather of last week turned to a high of 51 for tomorrow. I figured I could pack my vest (or tank ) tops and shorts, as I shouldn't need them until the trip at this rate!

Oh, and I got one more pair of shorts today, and $5 t-shirts at the Disney Store for Woody, Buzz and D.

That's OK - I quote Simpsons nearly daily. We had to stop watching it every night when we realized the 4 year olds were walking around saying "D'oh!" We'd watch the reruns during dinner, but at some point they started actually listening. They particularly like the "hot pepper" episode with Johnny Cash. "Note to self. Stop doing anything."

Love that episode!

Ah, from PrincessV - Fuzzy Disney Math. It allows you to buy extra days of stay to save money, doesn't count weekends or days with plans in your countdown - basically, anything that would help fudge some numbers!

OK, I'm getting in the DIS-know. Thanks for ed-u-macating me.

I still think I like Free Disney Money better though...

Well, who wouldn't?

But, I'm still feeling a little "newbie" and know this only because of reading the TR's, not because I'm any way "in the know!"

Crocs with socks!

So, the Crocs came this morning! Yay, Fed Ex!

They are very cute. The boys have been wearing them in the house all morning, but since it's only 50 degrees, here, Buzz is wearing his with socks. Sigh.

Has anyone ever run into this problem: one of his straps keeps coming "unsnapped" from the side. It clicks back on fairly easily, but pops off again kind of easily... I could glue it, but then he couldn't flip it forward to wear them as clogs... Or, should I send them back? The problem there is that I don't know if we'd get a new pair back in time.
