If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Lightbulb Ok...I THINK I AM TURNING INTO SUCH A....


(Photo shot at MK; January 2009)


... in relation to finishing packing my suitcase!! RRRRRRRRR! Ok - breathe........ just ONE SuItCaSe??
Sorry - you just witnessed me having a "Disney Moment." ....thanks 4 allowin me to vent. - Anywho - Ok...back to the issue of packing. Well.......I have everything all packed except for my shirts and shorts & I WILL have that done by Tuesday.
And when that's done - Time to celebrate ! The trip of a lifetime is drawing nearer .

I Received my air travel receipt a few days ago - so we are a go.
I tell you what though, it sure will be surreal going to Arlington National Cemetary; considering the most recent current events surrounding the Kennedy family.


But the nicest part is I am off work 2 days before this trip begins!



UP NEXT:

My plans for my pre-day before my actual ABD pre-day in Philly begins (and avoiding having a tearfull goodbye when Ladybug is dropped off at her "hotel") in a few more days. And places where "Bill" and Mr Conductor wanna see & have their picture taken.

Smile ** doing the single digit dance **

....ah yes - it's that time .
It was too funny watching Ladybug the other day watching me finishing packing that ONE SUITCASE of mine but.....I got it done! .

** I am at 41 lbs at 60 inches **
Oopps! Ok...what I meant to say is that my ONE SUITCASE is at the above sentence....not me . Anyway, back to my packing story.


...and she was giving me 'that look' while I was finishing packing, as if to say, "Where are you going and WHAT is her name?" .
So 3 Dog treats later, she was a happer camper.....until 09-16-09....the day I drop her off at "her hotel." Now this time, I vow to just drop her off and NOT turn around. I did that in January (as I was leaving) and she and I literally turned around at the same time 2 look at each other....and that look she gave me.
An expression of "Daddy? Don't leave me!"
Now, normally she is well behaved but when it comes to her "hotel stays,".....she just has it in her mind that she wants to go with me and enjoy whatever it is that I am doing. So when she begins to see that she isn't going in the direction that I am going, she pulls this subtle sounding little whine from her throat that would just melt anyone's heart. And the direct effect is very powerful for I feel like a 'bad parent." .

I turned around and walked out of the building, crying all the way home. Sat in my car in the driveway (when I got home) for a few minutes and still cried.
But hey......someone HAS to go to WDW ...right?? . And isn't it me who has opposable thumbs?? . So, about 15-20 minutes later, I was in my Disney mode to stay .
Besides....I made it up to her (when I returned from the land of WDW & DCL) and brought back a WDW blanket as a gift.....which she promptly "turned into" a chew rag . Anywho -


I talked with "Bill" the other day and he has made mention that he wants some pics taken of him while on Capitol Hill but he DID PROMISE me (while he's having his pic taken) that he WON'T be singing something about him sittin' there on Capitol Hill..... And expect him to also be the local food critic while on this trip as well.

Ah about my pre day before my ABD pre-day.....gonna spend it going out to the movies and going out to dinner afterwards . I can tell this is gonna be a wonderful trip and promise to take plenty of pics / video where I can.



Until next week -

T.T.F.N.

Well the trip is so close now, I know you are very excited!!!

Congrats on finishing your **ONE*** suitcase, that is impressive! I don't think I could swing it...kudos!

Awww...Ladybug. It is so tough to leave the furbabies. I have cats though so sometimes I enjoy a break from them and their megalomaniacal egos! JK I joke about them since they have such attitudes.

I can't wait to read about how the trip goes, it sounds awesome!!

A little something to get you psyched.....

My sons went on a mission trip to Philadelphia last month with our church, and one night they went out for.....cheesesteaks!!!! And the Philadelphians they were with said GENO'S has the BEST! So that's where they went- and said it was YUM-O-LICIOUS!! Here's a couple of pics to get you psyched-



Here are some of the kids with our minister. My DS10 is next to him, and DS12 is behind him, no doubt with a face full of steak. They are DELICIOUS, you will love them!! (The steaks, I mean- not the kids! But they're wonderful, too! ).

knewton64, I use Groupon to get discounts on deals around the DC area, and I thought I would mention that today's Groupon is $9 admission to the Spy Museum! http://www.groupon.com/deals/international-spy-museum


If you haven't used Groupon before, here's how it works.

Groupon is collective buying power, like a "group coupon". A business contacts Groupon to offer a deal. It can be for any reason, but let's say it's a new restaurant that wants to drum up some buzz. They decide to offer $40 of food for $20. In order to make this offer possible, they set quota of how many people must be "interested" in this offer before it is actually made available. The business may also set a limit of how many groupons may be purchased. They usually run the deal for 24 hours.

Around midnight, Groupon posts the deal. Around 7 or 8am they send an email blast to their mailing list. People flock to the website. They think $40 of food for $20 is a great deal, so they click on "Buy". The restaurant had set a quota of 40 people. So, if they don't get 40 people to buy in on this deal, your credit card will not be charged. If say they get 50+ people to "buy", then your credit card will be charged $20. A day later you get an email with a link where you can go and print out your groupon. Then you can go to the restaurant and have a good time. You give them the groupon at checkout and they calculate the rest for you. So say you ate $40 of food. With your groupon you only pay tip.

I'm not sure if you can buy multiple groupons for the Spy Museum but I saw in their discussion that someone asked that question, so a rep should answer it soon. You could probably have you and your husband buy one each and collectively save $10-12. Also once you purchased the groupon then your credit card is charged $9. You just print out the groupon and give it to the people at the Spy Museum. You've already been charged for it so you do not have to pay anything when you go to the museum.

.....2 1/2 hours to finish packing that OnE SuItCaSe .

When done, I went to Walmart and bought me .........a cheesesteak and a cherry dr pepper (to celebrate) .

FOOTNOTE: I have vowed to knock off with the cheesesteak thing (in getting things turned towards my DCL trip in Oct 2010) ONCE this trip is done but man.....those things taste soooooooooooooooo good . Now I see how Homer J. Simpson feels about those ever dreaded donuts .


That reminds me....just what is Homer's middle name ?? Mabey that's one of life's mysteries.
Anywho -



..and yes - it will feeeeeellll soooooo nice to have a small break from my 4 legged "child." She deserves her own break as well - been with me for 13 years.


TO THATSLYGIRL:

http://www.groupon.com/deals/international-spy-museum


....a HUGE thank you for this suggestion. Why? After reading recently the book , "Into the Mirror: The Secret life of master spy Robert P. Hansen," I agree that's one place I gotta check out. One quite "interesting" man I tell ya. And to think his favorite book to read was "The man who saw Tomorrow." So, it's going to be fun to see more behind these kind of people and their gadgets & what nots.



Lastly......

TO PODSNEL:
Ok u 2! me tink u r contributing to the deliquency of an adult with the Genos suggestion . Just fer that, I owe u 2 a Margarita on the Disney Magic oh....say in 408 days ??





************ NEWS FLASH *******************

IT"S OFFICAL...... I AM NOW IN VACATION MODE!


UP NEXT: : Dem pesky things called rules and JUST WHY THE "HECK" CAN'T I BRING A CHEESESTEAK ONBOARD THE AIRPLANE??! DOESN'T IT COUNT AS A "CARRY ON"?? ....he he he...

Moreover.... just what does "nimptopsical" and "tipsicum grave" mean?? And will I find it out while on my pre-day in Philly? Stay tuned for an update coming up this afternoon.

I am loving your trip report! I will be taking this same trip on July 1 and I am so excited that I can hardly wait! Speaking of carry-on...does the ABD allow you to have one carry-on and one suitcase per person? Can the carry-on be a small rolling suitcase? If so, I just may be able to get us all packed!

Yes, you are allowed one carry-on & one suitcase per person. My carry-on was a small rolling suitcase, and they had no problem with it. They also gave us a tote bag, and I used that for stuff I wanted to have on the bus (whoops, motorcoach!) with me.

Smile HEY....ABD ONLY SENT ME ONE YELLOW COLORED ABD LUGGAGE TAG...well.....

......ok - I am choosing to adhere to ABD's subtle request of 1 checked piece of luggage per person. Now....yyeess, they did say that that you can always request an additional ABD luggage tag (so you can in essense bring a 2nd checked piece of luggage on your trip) from them when you arrive into your destination. But.... I feel that that will only confuse the situation so I am choosing to back away from this.
Moreover, yyeess....you can also bring a "Carry-on" rolling luggage onboard the Domestic airline flight. And yeess.........one can also bring one "personal item" onboard the plane........(example - laptop, etc).
** BUT **
Here is where my sly humor comes into play when in regards to packing one's luggage.
- THAT I SEE THE INSIGHT N-O-W INTO ABD'S RULE ABOUT "Allowing" only 1 PIECE OF CHECKED LUGGAGE.

Yes, you can bring additional "stuff" with you....but why?

So - I am only bringing 1 checked piece of luggage and one carry-on (a duffle bag that houses my portable dvd player, I-pod, hand-held games, etc). My carry-on therefore doubles as a personal item as it also remains 1/4 full....so I can fill it with other stuff during my trip.
This way, I can fit it under the seat in front of me; thus I don't have to fight getting any carry-on (like a rolling suitcase that qualifies as a carry-on) out from the overhang compartment.

And yes, it is the duffle bag that I will be taking onboard the motorcoach when we have our "parties" onboard (lookout world cuz my "coffee" on the motorcoach will be Dr. Pepper and or Cocoa Cola)!

So....long story short - I admit that I see now the wisdom of the words they have typed up in their "Know Before You Go" info packet that we all receive. .....that in part says "We pack too much stuff."
Therefore, I'd say it depends on a few issues on how much "stuff" you need to bring like:

1) are there coin operated laundry facilities at anywhere along your stops / destinations?
1a). On this ABD trip, the only coin operated facilities are in Williamsburg Va.
1b). THAT STINKS! Cuz on your full day there, I want to spend it viewing the 301 acres of Colonial Williamsburg....not doing laundry. Even the evening before when we first roll up into the Great wolfe Lodge.
** FOOTNOTE *** IMO....book a post day & have a late flight out **

....this way you can see more of Colonial Williamsburg.



2) if no, can you avoid doing laundry until you get home?
3) If you have to, think of the cost savings of replacing what items you have to "discard" along your ABD vacation versus having to pay for a second piece of checked luggage. I AM SAVING $30 BY NOT BRINGING A 2ND PIECE OF LUGGAGE. BUt...I am spending $20 when I get back home replacing the items I am discarding. Money is money & I am using that $30 "savings" on a pretty cool meal during this trip .

So....yes I know I am talking a lot about this issue with you.. but you said u r going on this trip nxt year. So, I believe you need someone's opinion who has been brought up to speed recently on the "in's and out's" of ABD packing 101 (as well as this vacation since I have been asking a lot of questions) as I am very appreciative on bringing very little.....just one checked bag & one carry-on .
But hey...this is my "method to my madness." this might not work for you. this is just my opinion on what I have learned over the last 6 weeks via all things ABD.

P.S. Yyeess... I did receive my ABD backpack (totebag)....but I feel that it would be better used for extremely light stuff, like t-shirts & such. I am afraid that it will rip / tear if I use it on this trip. Looks nice though. Opinions vary from fellow DISsers on whether or not it can hold up to the punishment of a typical ABD vacation.


Hope this ramblin' response helps!

CYA -

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Ok -...ya convinced me. I am going to try something new here -



*** LIVE UPDATES ***


Normally, I keep a daily journal (while on vacation & then complete when home) but hey...why not do one & just put into my trip report via the internet? DUH!

Ok..I'm in. keep yer fingers crossed cuz I have never done a live report b 4. Hey..1st time 4 everything ya know! I need to ask the hotels info on their wireless & AA on their 'rules" for transporting computer batteries. If after getting off the phone with AA on Tuesday, I feel comfortable trusting them with all my electronic gizmos and gadgets, I'm in.
If not, I will ask the hotels for the whereabouts 4 their business center. I mean hey, I am used to getting 3-4 hrs sleep on my vacations....always on the go doin' stuff.

Oh.... those TSA people are just gonna love me when I come through DFW airport...he he he......here I am munching on a cheese steak sandwhich while I am going to DFW, etc....

Ok... been real!

Until next time -

Smile The secret lies with whom?, laptop answers, misc

......I called American Airlines this morning as well as Adventres by Disney. AA said (per the laptop usuage question) that I am more than welcome to credit card bill my laptop time.
ABD said that the 1st hotel (Hyatt at Penns landing; Philly) and the 3rd hotel (Great Wolfe Lodge; Williamsburg) has internet capabilities in each room but did not say if there is a daily usuage charge.
So...since I am at the 11th hour here, I am choosing to go the route of seeing if the hotels have a business center that .....has complimentary usuage of a computer - ahhhhhhh - I love that word.....
** complimentary **
...and chill out late at night doing some typing; updating my trip report . Just me and my 30 ga-zillion cups of Dr. Pepper. ....now that's MY secret (that and Chex-mix) that keeps me going,going,going on my trips.
rest assured - I love doing trip reports as I use this medium as a way for scrap booking purposes.
Pics, video & an updated trip report forthcoming
.





*** T-MINUS 36 HOURS AND COUNTING..... *****


P.s. Now whom DOES that secret lie with??? hhmm.....guess I will find that out shortly.
