Eye on the prize!!!!!

OMG, we will be at WDW one month from today! I'm on the boards pretty much every day, but today I must say I've read and seen a few things that are almost transporting me there in my mind.

So, 2 paychecks till Disney, and as a nurse, I'm able to pretty much schedule myself for as many hours as I want. So for the next 2 weeks I will be working a bunch of OT with the idea that the more I work now, the more money we'll have to spend while we're there! I'm trying to just keep my nose to the grindstone, but I'm pretty much starting to jump out of my skin. Even having a little trouble sleeping from excitement, which is bad when you have a 16 hour day ahead of you! I'm hoping to not burn myself out too much (or, horror, make myself sick), but I am planning on taking it easy the week before we go.

Let this time go fast, please!!!

I can certainly relate to how excited you are. I'm doing the same thing as far as being on the boards and thinking about it ALL THE TIME. I wish my job allowed me to work OT, though, so I could earn some extra money... I'd be all over that. Unfortunately, I get paid the same whether I work 40 hours or 80 hours a week. Have a great time!

I'm taking a similar approach! I don't get OT at my fulltime job, unless it's an extenuating circumstance. So I took a friend up on an offer to come work for him 20-ish hours a week until my trip! So when I get off work at my fulltime job, I go to his business and work another few hours... and it's ALL money for Disney!
