Then you have to use that title, LOL. I have one of those kids too. He had to pee in every states welcome center when we drove from CT to FL a couple of years ago.

OK Winkers....How can you go 8 pages of posts and STILL not start the TR??? You're good!

I have been MIA from the boards for awhile, but happen to see your TR today when I have finally been able to come back. Glad I found it and can't wait to hear all about your "healthy" trip to the World!

I guess I have a rare gift for stalling?

I thought about you and your dancing in AK when we were there watching them play!

The Long Blue Mile

The day of departure finally arrived! It had felt like it would never get there. That morning Hunter begged me to let him stay home from school and "help" me pack. But, mean mom that I am, I made him go to school, so he could annoy his teachers with constant talk of the trip.
That's my re-payment for the "projects" that get sent home for him to do and really all they are is busy work for the parents. Really, what is it they learn from building a fort out of toothpicks?

Once I got the kids off to school, I was in full on packing mode. I'm a procrastinator so I always pack right before I go somewhere. Suprisingly I had 6 suitcases and 6 carry on's ready to go within the hour.

The original plan was to leave at 3 but Evan and Bailie had play practice so it was 5 before we pulled out of town. In our van we had D.jay, Bailie , Ethan and me along with 14 pieces of luggage!
Mil drove her car with Evan and Hunter. She has this little gps she plugs into her car whenever she goes anywhere. She suggested we follow her to the hotel (we were staying overnight by the airport which is almost 2 hours away), but because we know better..........we told her we'd just meet her there.

I could tell lots of stories about Mil and her driving and getting lost going places she's familiar with.......but I'll be nice.

We ended up leaving 20 minutes later than she did and still made it to the hotel before her. As soon as we got out of the cars Hunter told us that because whe was following her gps , they ended up going the wrong way on a very busy one way street. Most people would have noticed the street signs, but she'd drive into a lake if that's what that little gprs told her to do.

Anyway, I got us checked in and got the directions to our rooms. Once we got to them I found that they had put us into 2 rooms with only 1 queen size bed. So I had to walk this super long blue corridor that I swear stretches for a mile, back to the front dest to get new rooms.

We got into the right rooms and then headed back down the long blue mile to eat in the hotels restaurant. It was this huge place and we were the only ones there. it was a little odd.

After a nice meal we had just gotten into bed when the phone rings......It's MIL having a total freak out. Once she calmed down enough for me to understand her, she said that their bathroom was flooded. So D.jay headed back to the front desk for another room key and I went to help get their stuff moved.
When I looked in the bathroom there was a little water, but certainly not a flood. Nothing to have gotten so worked up about. It didn't get on anything.

I think I finally got to sleep around midnight. I was so excited, I had a hard time sleeping and I was a little worried because MIL was already getting on my nerves..................................

Can't blame Hunter for tryin' . Oh dear the dreaded GPS, I even find when you look up directions online they are wrong. This comment scares me, I hope you had a good time even though you're MIL was driving you crazy and you're not even at Disney.

I hear ya! I hate projects! Any projects I want the kids to do, we do them in my classroom -- I love most of my parents, but I don't want to see what they can do.

what surprised me was they made us go to get the new keys both times and it was their problem. It was seriusly a five minute walk down this never ending corridor.
