Okay, here's the deal, LL -- something goes wrong with making your ADRs on the 22nd -- I am off -- I will do whatever you need me to do -- including making them in your name if necessary -- we can plot together beforehand if you want a back-up plan.

I snort laughed at Ruby on the door frame -- that is hysterical!!!

Don't worry, we have naughty names for our dogs and cats, too. Now, I am totally going to send you the Flair that I have wanted to send for forever, but I didn't want to offend you. It's a gem that I discovered awhile back.

Marc is more efficient at stealing Mickey heads? That made me laugh, too -- not that I doubt his "liberating" expertise or anything -- just makes me think of him as the James Bond of Home Depot.

I feel like a failure at Walmart and Target shopping -- I almost went into the bag section yesterday at Walmart and now I wish I had -- I want that Tink wallet. I must get to Target soon before all the Princess One Spot items are gone -- as you can tell I love your purchases.

I am also drooling over your countdown calendar -- I think I need to make one soon for our trip. If you are 188 days out, we can't be too far behind. Maybe at almost 200?

Great update!

You know, my DIS friends are the best. I might take you up on that as we get closer because I don't want to worry about it. I had to tell Marc that you and Christine offered, it really means a lot.

Just this second Ruby pulled out my cold medicine with her mouth that I have in my pen cup on the desk. Man oh man. I definitely just used her nickname. I can't wait to see the flair!

He told me that I didn't do a good job because I messed up his system when I went into the store first.

My Target didn't have the same stuff as Lara's did but I thought I got some good stuff.

You really aren't far behind us. Which is sad on many levels. Your family totally deserves a kick butt countdown!

Sulley weighs about 23lbs - 25lbs. He's HUGE. But he is a big ol' baby. He also has the wimpiest meow EVER. He sounds like a little chirping bird when he meows, it's quite cute.

I am so overwhelmed by the online ADR's, I can't even imagine how it will be.

Great purchases! I love the Target Dollar Spot. I find all kinds of cool things there. The other place is a Dollar Tree. I love coming out with a huge bag of goodies and paying like $10. Your countdown calendar is cute! I can't wait to see what is going to go into that frame.

I am dead serious, too. Anything you need me to do on the 22nd, I am planning on that being an ADR-making day!

Bella has a nickname because she appears to think that she is actually Charles's true love and starts growling if he hugs me. If we are sitting on the couch together, she makes a point of squeezing in between us -- no mean feat for a 50-pound dog.

He has a system? Maybe I should stop laughing and have him give me some pointers.

You know if it wasn't so cold and dark out, I would be seriously contemplating a Target run.

I have to resist the Dollar Tree for a bit longer. I am trying to keep these purchases under the radar since I promised Marc I wouldn't have to buy as much stuff for May as I did for September. Only a man would believe that.

I really might take you up on that. Depending on what we hear about the updates and such. He does a system, I will have to post about it.

Oh no! Those are the Mickey Head Paint chips from Home Depot. I just pulled them off their backing.

You don't rip them when you pull them off? I ripped two of them trying to do that. Now I leave them on the backing.

It should be here within 10 days.

I did steal Heidi's idea of using a Lime Green Mickey Head as Day 1. I also put stickers on Day 100 and the last 30 days of the countdown. I am super excited to use this!!
I love the calendar. I'd steal the idea, but think I still have way too many days to go.

I ripped a few of them, maybe like 5. I was able to peel them off. I also take a bit of the cardboard backing so they aren't so flimsy.

See, I wish I had gotten one size down with the frame because I wanted more coverage wth the Mickey Heads.

I love your wallet! I need a new one, I think that I am going to have to waltz on down to Wally World to see what I can find.

Your countdown calender is amazing I was trying to figure out a way to make a new one for our next trip but with so long in advance I wasn't sure what I would do. You have given me some good ideas.

Love all the planning.

We interrupt this PTR for....

.....some Mickey Head Carnage. I came home from work today and was greeted by this.







Sigh. I think my brilliant idea of using photo safe tape was just not that brilliant. I have gotten out my scotch tape and will do repairs tomorrow evening.

On the bright side we are at 186 days.

*** EDIT *** I just received the shipment confirmation for my countdown "something." It will be delivered to me by 3PM tomorrow. Who's excited???
