Wow, it sounds like we have a lot in common. My DH used to work for an oil company moving rigs. Now, he owns his own business, which I work for, driving truck and commercial pesticide and fertilizer application. We also have a dog, but my mom has "shared custody" and he's only here about 1/2 the time. I do most of DH's accounting type work, but that doesn't take a whole lot, and I usually do it during the day while DD #2 is napping or in the evening after the girls are in bed. Unfortunately, dust doesn't bother me too much (I wish it did ), so cleaning doesn't occupy much of my time. Besides, 2 minutes after I pick up, there are toys everywhere again .

That is why I can't have kids for 2-5 yrs. Lol. The mother instinct hasn't kicked in yet and I get really antsy if there is a mess. We clean up like right after dinner and all that. I even put away my scrapbook stuff when I'm done even though I know I'll end up pulling it all back out the next day. I never realized how much of a neat freak I was until I moved out of my parents house.

To be honest, I wish I was a little more of a neat feak. DD #1 is finally starting to pick up after herself a little better because DD #2 has started crawling and getting into everything. However, DH and I are both a little lax about picking up after ourselves. We try, but it never seems to do much good.

Today was gorgeous here. It was about 70 degrees with just a light breeze, so DD #1 spent most of the afternoon riding her bike and DD #2 and I went for a walk to the post office to mail some bills for DH. It's supposed to get nasty here again on Wednesday, so I figured we should take advantage of the good weather while we have it.

The only thing that I have to think about for the trip is the tickets to MNSSHP which go on sale on Thursday. Once I've gotten those and know that we get to go on the night we want, pretty much everything will be taken care of. My mom is going to make my costume (Wendy), DH is going to be Peter Pan, and DD #1 is going to be tinkerbell. My mom and DD #2 are going to go back to the resort since it will get pretty late.

Well, we're all sick here now. Both of my DDs and I have an awful cold. Last night DD #2 woke up at 1:30 and basically never went back to sleep. I pretty much feel like I got him by a bus (Dh said, "At least it wasn't a train.")

I have spent a little more time working on my spreadsheets, and I'm going to type up cards for each day with "must sees" at the parks, confirmation numbers, and other information. I also probably need to start working on making some of the t-shirts that the wonderful people on the DIS thread have personalized for me. I'm so excited!

We got our MNSSHP tickets this morning. I had to call like 10 times before I could even get through (it kept saying that all circuits are busy), and then I had to wait on hold for about 45 minutes. Oh well, at least I got the date we wanted, and I was up with the little one anyway.

The shirt designs are from the board here, and they are awesome! I can't wait to get started on them. I will definitely have pictures of those to share. There are so many talented, helpful people there.

Sounds awesome I can't wait to see them! Congrats on getting your tickets for the night you wanted. Hurray I think I am going to have someone create a design for us for our honeymoon since we are going on a disney cruise. Don't you just iron on the designs to a tee shirt? Sounds simple enough. Hehe.

All you have to do is by iron on paper for your computer printer and then print them off and iron them on the shirt. I've actually done it for my daughter's birthday before, and it looks pretty cute. The people on the Disign thread are really wonderful. They're all so talented and helpful!

Wow! That's quite a trip. We'll be there at Sea World, but we'll be leaving Disney on the day you arrive . I don't even want to think about that part yet.

Yeah, it's going to be a wild trip... But when you fly all the way from Europe, you want to get most out of it... I'm really looking forward to it
