I am so happy to hear of everyone getting ready to begin their vacation.

I have 6.5 more hours of work.

I have stuff to do now that I was not able to get done last night. No power = no vacuuming, no dishwasher, no clothes washer and although I could have dusted, dusting by candle light is NOT my idea of fun.

It's my DH's birthday today. I am more excited to work my last 6.5 hours than for his birthday today! Poor DH...

Everyone have safe travels. Have a wonderful weekend. See you all Tuesday!

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

The furbabies and their treats, toys & blankets are at the kennel ( we tell them that they're going to camp )

I just finished printing out our boarding passes for our flights tomorrow

I have 4 hours of work left and then a quick stop to find a couple pairs of long pants to take - the nights sound like they will be quite cool.

when I get home I will make a few packing adjustments - nix the sundress - add long pants & a sweater, etc etc

Then a quick manicure & pedicure before settling down with a nice glass of Reisling. Of course I won't get to bed til later than I hope ( always happens )
then we have to get up super early - our cab to the airport arrives at 4:45am

We land at Long Beach airport @ 12:45pm ( California time ) and then a hopefully short drive to Huntington Beach.
Let the picture taking begin

BTW - for those of you who might over-do it on your memory cards for your cameras - I have a 12 in 1 USB card reader and I will have my laptop with me. If worse comes to worse you're more than welcome to download your cards onto my computer to free up a card or two

Everyone travel safe -

See you all soon

Our car for the airport leaves at 4:45 a.m. too, Marilee, only on Monday. Crazy! Our plane is scheduled to land at LAX at 8:35 a.m. Our bodies are going to be so confused about the time, I have a feeling we'll be really tired at that point. (Neither of us is good at sleeping on the plane.) I'm hoping that we are lucky enough to get early check-in at the Renaissance. (Kevin requested it for us - reminding me that it's only a request, not a guarantee.)

I have about 4 hours left here at work today, then luckily I have the weekend to complete my tasks around the house and pack. I also plan to do some more "resting and drinking fluids."

It's been said already, but it's almost hard to imagine that it's actually finally TIME for this to happen. After almost a year of planning and posting here, we will all actually be together in the same place by Tuesday evening for our welcome dinner. I am so looking forward to seeing my dear friends who I already know and meeting those of you who I've not met previously.

It's only 10:30. Oh this day is d r a g g i n g!!!!

I want to be done with work. I am hoping that once I am outta here, it will feel more like vacation has started.

Monday at 5:30 am as I head to the airport for my 7:15 am flight, it will REALLY seem like vacation!

I've started the travel process!!! Finding clothes I forgot I had - still searching for an appropriate jacket - uploading pictures to clear off my memory cards - going to the bank and pharmacy - deciding if I really need that extra pair of shoes - prinitng off flight information - trying to figure out how to prepay for a checked bag so I can save a few dollars.

Such excitement ! We're all packed - even the Carry on's, working from home had it's advantage this week for me ... Our trip tomorrow also begins at 4:45am - 7 am flight out of Nwk to LAX at 10 ish or 1 ish !! something like that, then over to Long Beach. John has to work late tonight : ( so when he get's home he will take care of the last minute details and then it's dinner out at our local sushi rest. Maybe an extra glass of Plum wine will make the time will pass quicker !! See everyone soon - Travel Safe . Micki

The schedule for F&W is finally posted:

http://adisneyland.disney.go.com/med...hedule2010.pdf

It is exciting to see my event listed (Cheese and Wine Pairing with Barrie Lynn, the Cheese Impresario, on May 14, 15 and 16.) It's delightful to know I'll be going back so soon after our ABD trip, and to anticipate taking part in the festival from backstage.

Wooohooo!! travel safe everyone!!

Due to circumstances that keep me employed, I am working Monday rather than taking the day off as I should have. So, I am fighting hard to keep my "Disney brain" at arms length at least past the weekend. I am thinking of you all packing and arranging, and some who have even arrived already!

I am catching the first flight our Tuesday and should arrive around by 11:00, and I can't wait to meet you all!!

Merrilee - thank you so much for the kind offer!! I am dithering about picking up another stick, but c'mon! I have 32gig already - surely that is enough! (Warning ya'll again - I take a LOT of pictures!)

Chris - I don't envy your long trip back from Singapore, but can't wait to meet you and hear about your travels! Good luck with the flights!

Karen - can't wait to meet you gal! We're gonna have some fun!

Tracy - I hope they find and return your ID!!

Dodie - glad to hear you are feeling better

All - Safe travels and see you soon!!

Charging all of the electronics (cameras, video, Kindle, netbook, Phillip's iPod, etc.) now.

I agree with Kathy about the weather forecast. I think I'll check it tomorrow before I start deciding what clothes to bring. Laundry will need to be done regardless.

However, since I walked out of work 2 hours ago - I consider myself to be ON VACATION!

I am gone from work as well, as of 1 hour ago. I count that as vacation!

Now it's on to packing!
