3 Days to Go!!!



The fact thet we're leaving Saturday finally "hit" my DW - she had her packing "panic attack" last nght ... ... at 1:15 am!!!

Still haven't finished my touring plan for DHS - but given the weather forecast for next Wednesday, we may not make it there anyway ...

DD just woke up and is sitting - and yawning - on my lap - and she definitely needs to brush her teeth !!! )

Later ...

ONLY 2 - Count 'em!!

2 DAYS TO GO!!





I think the only thing that is keeping me relatively calm are the TV Christmas specials - last night we watched "Rudolph" ...

Made a file with pictures of all you DISers out there who I might see next week ... actually, we'll probably be standing in line next to each other and be totally oblivious!!

Which reminds me - gotta work on the LGMH today ... "at work" ...

Finished reading the "how to" video book the DW got me last year - some good advice ... but I'm not lugging a tripod around WDW!! I have 6 1-hour tapes - so that should be enough ... I'll just have to control myself!!

Later ...

Checked Accu-Weather ... revised packing list ... say goodbye to a pair of shorts and a t-shirt ... say hello to a long-sleeve t-shirt ...

... and decided to leave the "winter" coat and umbrella at home ... in the closet ...

... onto Danielle's packing list ...

OK folks - we're rapidly approaching hour

22!!!

I got the Mousekeeping and Bell Services tip envelopes together last hour ... used the "to/from" holiday gift tags I got for free from the Disney Movie Club ... and Danielle has a tablet with a few hundred Mickey & Co. holiday stickers she can use to "personalize" each envelope ...

It's that time now - the bathtub is ready ... I'm ready ... but the BIG question is: Is Ranger ready?!?

Cuz it's BATH TIME!!

Time to get wet ... (and I ain't talkin' 'bout the dog ...)

21!!!

Anybody out there reading this???

Just printed out instructions, emergency phone #s, etc. for the cat and fish sitter ... Hopefully, the cat won't have a hankering for "seafood" while we're gone ...

Ranger has his bath - so he's all set for his week at the "doggie resort" ... I think he's a little depressed, cuz he got a bath - so he knows something is up ...

The key to giving a 70 lb border collie/sheperd a bath is to not let them "shake" ... ... and I was pretty successful at that ... Actually, he likes baths - jumps right into the tub ...

... but there's nothing like the smell of wet dog in the morning!!

Time for an early lunch (leftovers ...)

And then it's off to Pet Smart, the bank, the Christmas Tree Store, Target (maybe), and the Dollar Tree ...

BTW - anyone have any suggestions on how to cram a 6-foot Doug-fir into a suitcase!?!

So - I will probably miss my hour 20 check-in ... ... but I'm sure you'll survive ...

You still there, sweetie? - no sign of Christiani ...
