There is NOTHING more frustrating that starting a post over!

I am so happy to be a part of this TR! I'm not that good at writing TR's on my own so being MEK's sidekick-commentator is a great way to start.

This was definitely an impromptu trip! She said I needed to go to WDW one more time before school and offered to accompany me. Not one to back down from a WDW offer I called her bluff and made the ressie at BLT! It didn't seem real at first. Nothing did; quitting my job, going back to school, or going to WDW. The first two things on that list were put on hold but not the last one; we were DISNEYBOUND!

When people found out I was going back to WDW (again) they assumed I was taking my family -- and were surprised, if not shocked when they found out I was going with a GF only.

Mama needs a vaca from being Mama; KWIM?

I usually travel with the mantra: If you forgot to pack it, buy it; if you can't buy it, you didn't really need it. After this trip I might amend that to say: if you can't buy it, have a friend overnight it to you! I'm sure we'll talk about that later

So, MEK was packed days before we left while I was literally still grabbing things as I walked out the door!

Here is how differently we pack:

Mary Ellen

One medium/large suitcase, large backpack, rolling cooler, and a camera bag!

Me

One medium/large suicase and a hip pack.

I kept asking her if she wanted me to carry something, but she had it under control.


De plane, de plane!


Hum the Jaws theme to this one...

Ya think?????? I am a really weird packer. I swear I take the same amount of luggage for a 5 day trip as I would for a 10 day trip. I blame it on the running clothes.

BTW.....

I can't believe I lost it either. I think I must have thrown it in the laundry basket at VWL but it probably landed in the back of the closet. I have the same shirt with blue and pink, but its not the same.

Cynthia!


I know...sad.... I hate to lose things - especially clothes.

for overpacking. I told you we are going to get along so well. We have all the same habits!

Oh and the DME rockstar......that was your phrase and I thank you for it!

Sleeping*Beauty. Thanks for joining in my TR. And, yes, it was a little strange flying on 911, but more on that in the next update!

Notice that I have actually left a page for chapter links. I may end up with a really lengthy page, but I am determined to do it right this time!

I really would like to do an update tonight but I managed to pick up the cold that Brian and Nick had while I was away. I gotta tell you, this cold has knocked me on my @$$. I think I might go to bed early tonight, but I promise to update tomorrow.

Dude, I don't overpack; instead I've left stuff I need in Orlando waiting for me, it's called my Owner's Locker, remember?

I admit it. I'm an overpacker!

This report is going to be a blast!

Mary Ellen I'm sorry you're feeling bad. It's tough to come back from vacation and be sick. I hope you heal fast.

Jen, I can't wait to find out what you forgot.
