I did "Go the Distance" with a choir I was in - such a great song. I still don't think I've actually seen the moive (I know, horror!) but it's a great song!!

Hope you are doing well this morning!!!

Yay!

Lou is feeling better - he's really tired, since he's working every day for a week at work, and those are long hours. He's trying to be careful with his shoulder, but the doctor did a good job, so he's not too worried. I have a picture he sent me, but I won't subject you guys to it...

Thank you...

He got 11 stitches on the outside... eep! And then more interior ones that dissolve.



On a lighter note, we went over the songs he thinks he can do for American Idol (depending on if they have them in different keys or not), and I figured I'd share it with you guys:

Life is a Highway - Rascal Flatts
Ain't Too Proud to Beg - The Temptations
I Heard It Through the Grapevine - Marvin Gaye
You Are the Sunshine of My Life - Stevie Wonder
Go The Distance - Hercules
You'll Be In My Heart - Phil Collins
Stand By Me
Your Song - Elton John

I love You'll be in my Heart and Go the Distance. Hercules is one of my favs... Pain and Panic and of course Hades. Great song choices!

I'm pretty sure these were them. I remember there were 8. His top two are probably "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "Your Song", but I'm hoping he might add "Go The Distance" as well, because as you can tell, I love Hercules.

22 days!!!!!!!!!!!!

And you only have 11 days!!!!!!!!!! Wow! It's sooo close! I'm so excited.

Although you know, it still doesn't seem like it's happening.... I don't think it will until I get on the plane, and we take off. I got a little journal book to write things down in, so I can write a trip report afterwards. I might need to buy a new SD card too, I'm not sure. I just emptied the one I have, since I don't think I'll be taking any pictures until then.

I need to get a little journal too. Or, actually, I think I have one. Just have to make sure to use it!

So soon!!!

I went shopping yesterday and crossed a few things off my list, including a lime green binder for a journal

I know what you mean- it will feel like it is happening for me when I arrive at my nieces' house and come inside and wave my magic wand and pronounce the trip as having started!

(and yes, I do have a Disney princess magic wand that lights up and makes a whooosh sound when you wave it... and yes, I fully intend to greet my nieces with it. I figure that's what a proper Fairy God Aunt should do. )

I'll be twittering live updates, and taking lots of photos (the theory being that if I photograph everything, I don't need to write down what we did Just bought a 2nd card for my camera) But I also will have a tiny notebook with me just in case I want to write things down. I'll definitely be writing a full trip report for my website, since I always do- but this time, I will be including things my nieces (hopefully) write.

Glad Lou is doing ok- and that's awesome that he is going to audition for AI! I'll cross my fingers that he gets to do "Go the distance"

Oh, I will! As soon as he stops working every day this week, he's going to be taking it easy. Not like he has to plan an entire vacation or anything!

He's just handing over the money. As far as he knows, I could be planning an extravagant vacation for myself. Not a bad idea...


Speaking of vacations...

THREE WEEKS LEFT!

DO get another card if you only have one. I think I took 2 3 or 4 SD cards or one camera and 3 CF cards for the other. I used over 1 on each camera. And mine hold alot too.
Buy.com usually has them for really cheap with free shipping

I am thinking I will take more than one too - heaven forbid you lose one, at least you won't have to try to buy another one at Disney!

Thank you very much! You're staying at SSR, right?

Mini-update:

I bought a few more things, dug a few more things out of the attic, and cleaned my room! (The last is the most surprising.. )

Everything is now sitting on my bed, so I need to clean that off because I'm dead tired.

Lou also consented to me making a countdown for him. He said only for the last week, but that seems lame, I want to do the last two weeks (which starts TUESDAY!!!). I'm going to make little envelopes or something with the number on them, and then an interesting fact about a park or ride inside.

I also printed out all of our itineraries on colorful paper and laminated them... badly. I didn't know exactly how to work the laminator, but I think it's okay - you can still read them.

It still seems like a really long time away, even though I know it's not. I don't even know how long I've had the suitcase out in my room for.... a month, at least. I've also been stockpiling DVDs to watch on the TV in our room - and microwave popcorn. I loveee popcorn!

I hope you're feeling better today! Keep hydrated! (Even if it is with nasty orange Gatorade).
