9 more days!!!!

I am officially doing the single digit dance...and it looks amazingly like the "white girls can't dance" dance. I woke up this morning and my first thought was "I will be in Disney World in 9 days!!"

I was able to check in on-line yesterday. I was so excited about doing that. It makes everything so real! I am not sure why I was so gung ho on checking in on-line, we will probably get to the hotel around 10:00 am, not really sure that the check in area will be all that busy. But hey, I am one step closer to my happy place.

I was reading another thread where people were talking about how busy it is down there lately. I sure hope all those people will be leaving soon so I have some quiet time at the parks.

I have a mission to complete while on vacation. A friend of mine likes Aladdin so I told him I would try to find something to bring back to him that involved Aladdin. Then it came to me...I am going to have my picture taken with him (it has to be just me and Aladdin) then I am going to buy a frame to put it in so my friend can put it on his desk at work. That is the kind of friend I am.

That is all for tonight, so until next time, happy reading.

1 week from today...

at this exact time, I will be on an airplane going to Disney World!!!

Now, I just need to get my rear end in gear and get everything ready. It is a good thing I am taking next Friday off to pack, otherwise nothing would get done and I would be up packing and not get any sleep.

That is all I have for now, until next time, happy reading.

5 DAYS!!!

So, are you a person that packs everything just in case you need it, or do you pack more conservatively? Last time we went to WDW I took everything but the kitchen sink, and used only 2/3 of it.

Enjoy your packing and hope you get some sleep too!!

It is so close I can almost taste it. I used to over pack to the extreme! It was crazy. Now not so much. Since Paige still needs her naps and Rod likes midday snooze as well, I will pack for about 4 days and do laundry at the hotel. This year I discovered those Purex 3 in 1 sheets. I tried some out here first and they do a good job. Since it contains the detergent, fabric softner, and dryer sheet all in 1 sheet, it takes up less room.

We had a big scare this weekend. On Saturday, Paige was playing on her swing set. We have one of those wood ones that has a fort with a slide on one side and swings on the other. Well, Saturday evening we were outside. I was trying to build a fire in our fire pit and Paige was playing on her slide. All of a sudden, I heard a noise but assumed it came from one of the neighbor kids. Suddenly Paige starts crying and coming towards me from the back side of the swing set. She had fallen from the window on the tall part of the fort! I almost had a heart attack when she told me what happened. Thankfully she was fine, in fact she did not have 1 single bump, bruise, or cut. God was definitely there to catch her! Of course, once I calmed down, I thought to myself "good thing she did not break a bone, it would be terrible to go to Disney with a broken leg or arm..." of course I eventually got to that point!

One last thing before I sign off for the night, I am shocked that I haven't yet spilled the beans! It must be because I can talk about it here until my heart is content.

Until next time (if I make another one prior to leaving), happy reading.

I love the Purex 3 in 1 sheets...it means my daughter can do laundry as one of her chores...she's 10 and short like me, so she can't reach the place in the washer to put the liquid detergent.

Glad Paige is okay...isn't it funny- if one of us adults took that kind of a spill we'd be in the hospital. Kids just need a good looking over, a hug, and then they go their merry way.

Rod and I said the same thing...we would have broken every bone in our body and she on the other hand doesn't even have a mark. Crazy!!

Now for some not so happy news...Paige and I have colds. We realized Monday that Paige was not feeling up to par but by yesterday is was apparent that she had a cold and I caught it from her. Horrible Indiana weather...at least that is what I am blaming it on.

I started packing some things last night, the stuff that goes into our 1 checked bag. Stuff like our shampoo, conditioner, the bottled water for my cpap, things we can't carry on the plane. I am glad I started that last night because I realized that I still need to buy our soap! That could have been a problem. I also need more zyrtec for my allergies and now that we have colds I need to buy some of the travel size packs of kleenex's. I just hope that we are feeling better by saturday otherwise Mickey and friends might be sick by the time we leave. Then the world will hate us.

That is all for tonight, until next time, happy reading.

glad to hear paige was unhurt. Its funny how every moment we somehow connect to disney. Stinks about the colds. That seems to be the thing right now. I have talked with other disers and they have the same troubles and a bunch of people at my work have colds. I however have put myself in a bubble so I should be ok. Just kidding.

Well you must be so excited for your trip is only 2 days away. I remember from your earlier posts that you are taking off tomorrow to pack right? Well good luck with packing and with your trip. I will wish for a speedy recovery from the colds for you.

I forgot to let you know about the big suprise Rod sprung on me Tuesday night. He came home from work and told me he had "decided" that we were going to go see La Nouba (the Cirque De Soleil show). What??? Does the man not know how much those tickets cost? If he didn't then, he does now as I told him that they were expensive. It obviously did not matter as he bought them anyway. Now I am not sure if I should be upset that he spent that much money or happy that he actually participated in the plan. I think I am going to go with happy.

I took Paige to see one of their shows in February with my parents when they came to Indy and she absolutely LOVED it! So I know she will enjoy this one. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

I took tomorrow off from work so I can do laundry, clean the house up, and pack. I also need to head to the post office and Walmart to pick up those last minute things. But I have gotten some things taken care of already...

I have the neighbor boy set up to watch our dog for the week, get our mail, and keep an eye on the house. I told him we would pay him $100 and he said that he understood if we needed to pay him less than that especially with the economy the way it is. Now he is 17 years old and I was shocked that he was that aware of the economy. I mean aren't teenagers supposed to be so wrapped up in themselves that they can't see anything else? He really is a good kid, plus I thought I was getting off cheap with only paying him $100...afterall, he is walking across the street a couple of times a day to feed Apollo, let him out, and play with him plus everything else.

I have the neighbors next to the 17 year old taking us to the airport. Lucky for us, one of them works first shift and can take us on her way to work. They are also going to help with our dog when the 17 y/o is in school. Plus they both work for the police department so will keep a good eye on our house. I am so lucky to have such great neighbors!

In less than 36 hours we will be on a plane heading to Disney! I can hardly believe that after months and months of planning that it is this close.

Until next time, happy reading.

Not sure if there is a big plan...we are going to wake her up in the morning (at 4:50am!! ) and tell her she needs to get up so we can get on an airplane. Then once we land in Orlando, I am going to tell her that her "fun day" (for being good this week) isn't going bowling but rather Disney World. I sure hope she is ok with not going bowling...you never know with my child how she will react. My luck, she will say "but you sad we could go bowling!!" Ugh!

Well, I need to get busy...I have mowed the grass, gone to Walmart and the post office, now I just need to take a shower, do the laundry, and pack....all before I pick up Paige this afternoon.

Thank you everyone for reading and following along....so until we return, happy reading.

That is funny....I have never been stalked before.

The trip was AWESOME!! Paige had so much fun. She made a new friend, in fact her mom and I traded addresses so the girls could write to each other. I was able to meet up with my friend I haven't seen in over 4 years. It was great. We hung out at the MK for part of Thursday and he even rode Goofy's Barnstormer (the kid's roller coaster) with us. Now he is about 6'1" but got on it anyway. It was really cute. I will try to get some pictures up soon. It may take awhile as I am still unpacking and doing laundry. That is the worst part of vacation for me...
