I don't know how much sleeping I'll be doing tonight! I'll be too excited!! However, I'm very tired today since I went to bed pretty late last night. Hopefully, that will help me sleep tonight. We told our DD that if she wanted to go out to eat tomorrow, she has to go to bed early tonight. Aren't we such stinkers?

Mickey, Here We Come!

"Come fly with me. Come fly, let's fly away...." the words of Frank Sinatra have been playing in my head all day! I love this song and I've even choreographed a dance for one of my ballet classes to it a few years ago. How fitting, right? We'll be flying away to Orlando in just over 15 hours!!! Holy moly!

Well, I did about 90% of my packing today. My room looked like a disaster area. I had 3 suitcases laid out on the bed and tons of my clothes scattered about. My DH packed last night, so that was good. He only took up 1/2 of the largest suitcase. I packed our DD's stuff in that suitcase as well. We don't want to go over those 50 lbs! So, I had a suitcase all to myself which I filled quite easily. I plan on looking at my suitcase again tonight to see if I really need all those shirts. Odds are, I'm not removing anything. In the 3rd suitcase, we're packing snacks and our DD's booster seat (just the bottom portion). We don't want to check it with the luggage because it's so small and we don't want it to get lost or damaged. All we have left to pack is toiletries and those can't get packed until tomorrow morning. I have packed up the travel sized items that I bought, but there are still a few things we'll need to throw in. Also, I can't finish packing my DD's carry-on until she goes to bed. She'll question where her precious Nintendo DS is! I'm charging my camera and ipod as I type this, so those will be all ready to throw in my bag tonight. Oh boy. I'm so excited!!!! Earlier today, my heart was pounding, my hands were shaking and my palms were sweaty. I can't wait until tomorrow!

Here are the plans for tomorrow (just in case you forgot...and I like talking about the trip!):

4am-Wake up time! DH and I will get up, shower, etc before waking up the princess
4:45am-Surprise Time!!!!
5:30am-My parents pick us up for the airport
7:45am-Depart from Buffalo (good-bye icky weather)
9:15am-Scheduled landing time at JFK. Does it really take an hour and a half to fly across the state?
10:20am-Depart JFK and head to beautiful, warm Orlando
1:20pm-Land at MCO!!!!
We then have to gather our luggage, pick up the rental car and head over to the hotel. After we check in, get settled, etc....it's time for a quick trip to Public's (grocery store) to pick up a few items. Then......
6:30pm-Ressie at T-Rex!!! I'm sure we'll get there earlier then that and we'll be walking around DTD. We'll shop or just hang out at DTD for the evening and then it's off to bed for Epcot the next day


I just want to thank all of you for reading my PTR. It's been great being able to share this with all of you. I really don't know what I would have done with these boards. My DH would probably be ready to ring my neck!!! I do plan on doing a TR when I get home. I can't leave you all in suspense of our big surprise. That would be downright cruel. I hope to check in to the DIS every now and then while I'm gone. I don't want to get too far behind in the TR's that I'm currently reading. They're too much fun to read! I hope to get onto the laptop during our short layover at JFK tomorrow. I can give everyone a sneak peak at the big surprise. I'll save the big details for my TR. Sorry...gotta start the TR with a bang! Again, thanks for reading!!! I'll give Mickey a big hug for all of you!!!

Hi everyone! We're home now and I'm totally depressed. I cried yesterday morning and I've been weepy since we got home. At home, I'm just reminded of planning the trip and having so much fun doing it. I don't want to get back to normal. Well....I hope to start up my TR soon. I'll probably take a peek at my photopass pics tonight so I can put in the order for the cd.

Glad to see you back but I know it was hard leaving. I know when we leave I'll be very sad. But this gives you all the more reason to plan another trip

Hi Meghan, Hope you had a wonderful time. You were missed. I know I am even more depressed now, since DH did our taxes last night and we are not getting back half of what we did last year. Looks like no cruise for us this year!
