5 Days!!!


So, I was packing today. Part of packing had to do with pulling out the bin of summer clothing to see if anything fit. Good news/bad news. Everything fit about the same, but all the skirts are still too small. I'm determined that by the end of the summer (after PT and in classes again) I will fit into all my favorite skirts. I refuse to get rid of them yet!

I used to live in the south, but it's so hard to remember what 75 in the winter feels like. I know it's not as humid, but what is it really like? 75 in Seattle is a normal summer day, I'm trying to remember what it's like in the south. Oy. Well, I overpacked no matter what, prepared for anything! I have my floral dresses, and I have my wool jacket.

Wow! 5 more days to go and you'll be at Walt Disney World!!

I was just checking your forcast and you appear to be having the same type of weather we had when we were there 12/1-12/8. The first few days are upper 70's-80. Now being from the north 80 felt really warm, like I was sweating and felt too warm, if that's possible. It felt really good to be in warm weather, but touring the parks made it somewhat uncomfortable. I think you will be fine with your summer dresses, however the nights will be different, cover those legs and wear a jacket for sure. If the forcast holds true, your supposed to get mid 60's mid-week through the end of the week. It's definitely hard to pack with such a fluctuation in temps.

Here is the website I used for weather forecasts out of Florida:

Oh I know! last time we ended up buying sweatshirts at the parks. Never again! I'm pretty much a master of dressing in layers (a necessary thing in the pacific northwest), but for that trip I wasn't prepared. Not this time! Most days we will be going back to the hotel mid day for a nap, so perfect time to switch clothing. I keep thinking that I'm overpacking clothing wise, but I'd rather be prepared for the weather, especially when I'm not sure how I'll react to it since we live in such a different climate.

How the heck did you get him to do that!!?? My DH would never pack his own things, when I try to get him to pack he ends up asking me what he should bring. So it's just easier to do it myself. Of course then he cannot complain about what I packed him to wear either, hee, hee, hee.

A couple of weeks ago I told him that if he wasn't packed at least a couple of days before we left, then it wouldn't be my fault that he didn't have any clean clothing to take. If he wanted to make sure he had clean underwear, then he better be packed by today, because today is the last chance for me to do laundry.

So....
Almost done with all the packing
I put the magical express and luggage tags on last night
I organized my carry on bag
...and I can't seem to stop working on touring plans.

I suppose there are worse ways to spend the evening.

Not sure about the dancing banana thing, I'm just really attracted to them, could it be a subconscious thing since their considered phallic symbols, banana's that is? I just know I enjoy putting them in post occassionally .

Smart idea with the laundry & packing. DH could definitely pack his own underwear & socks, but I don't trust him with matching clothes. I think he may be color blind, it's amazing the combinations he comes up with when dressing to go out. I think they should bring back "geranimals" (sp.?) for adults. You know, the matching tags they put on clothing for children years ago. You may be too young to remember those?

Anyway I want to say HAVE A WONDERFUL TRIP TO WALT DISNEY WORLD!! And I hope your stay at the Wilderness Lodge is awesome! Will you be continuing this post with a report when you get back? I hope so!

I hope your trip is loaded with And maybe you will get lucky and the Dream Team will give you something fun!

Happiness is.....




so I finally took a pic of the luggage! but it's better than just the luggage, because the Magical Express tags are on them! woooohoooo!


I'll definetly be doing many, many posts with trip reports and pictures and pictures and pictures. It might be a couple of weeks before I do, surgery and all. Although, with the drugs, it might make for an interesting trip report....


and 1 day!

I'm just about out the door.
I teach tonight and then meeting DH at my parents house (one good thing about my parents moving up here, they can drive us to the airport for long trips). It's my dads bday, so we'll have a meal together before heading out for our 11pm flight

So, bags are packed
I'm ready to go

See ya!

We're back! I should be able to get in a few posts before I go under the knife of Thursday. No time now, though I'll leave you with the photo that best sums up the trip...
