I learned from an informed tech support cm that the linked DVC reservations are more advanced than the system and they are working on updating the system...no online check-in for me.

I am anxious so I can't say I am enjoying the days...but I am busy enough for the time to go a bit quicker.

Have a GREAT trip and I can't wait to read your TR!!! When you pass by the boat docks in front of MK, say hi to the FW launch for me!

I wish you would be there. I'd love to meet you and give you a great big hug. Heck I am welling up thinking about it! I will certainly say "Hi" for you!

Sooo, not only were DH and I watching the Orlando forecast...now, we are busy panicking about the Philly forecast...We might get snow on Wed! UGH. what is so frustrated is that we are only two days away and no one is making a real prediction?! The one station has it down to two possible tracks.

On the positive side...DD still doesn't know when we leave. She thinks 2/5...her sister shook her head yes at dinner to her, and when I looked at her, she acted sheepishly like she didn't do anything. DH and I also talked about dinners for the week, and I told the girls we would go out Friday night--we discussed local restaurants.

Today, I wore my hidden Mickey sweater. One of my students noticed the Mickeys. Some colleagues complimented it- but didn't see the Mickeys...I didn't tell them about them either. (They already think I am crazy. )

Tomorrow will be another quick day. I half a half day with students and a half day to work on marking period grades. I am finished 90% of the marking period grades (I have a couple of kids to turn in make up work.) So, I will be working on my lesson plans for my sub. My girls have an ortho appt in the evening.

Wednesday is an Inservice day. I am not even sure what we are working on...I will be going over my touring plans probably and double checking the packing list. (Everything will be ready to go except toiletries when I leave for school.) When I get home I will hang Hannah's sign (from Milliepie's 4 shared files): Please visit to see [/URL]http://www.4shared.com/photo/kQoqeoG...eypantsmh.html

Once the girls are home, they can finalize they flight backpacks (they packed these a week ago) and we will be on the road to my FIL's house. He will then drive us to airport.

No SNOW or SLEET

I'll send pixie dust your way for no snow!! We got a little bit of snow today in Cincinnati but no more than an inch.. a dusting probably. Driving to work was a bit icy but they don't tend to use salt on the roads here unless we get a ton of snow so that's why!

It's great that with technology these days that you are able to check you flight status so often without having to call!

Happy continued packing!!

Thank you everyone!

Forecast has now changed- messy rain snow in am and FOUR TO EIGHT INCHES in evening!!!

I called Southwest and changed our flight to 11:20 tomorrow morning!!!

I LOVE Southwest! They let me change the flight and for a one time weather related change - I did not have to pay any extra!!!

Okay- so I will check in later tonight. I need to run back to school to finish plans- I was supposed to go in for an inservice tomorrow, but I am certainly sick- so I will have to call out!

It's great to hear about the change! Safe travels to all of you! It looks like the snow is going to miss us tomorrow. It said Cincinnati and south/east would get hit but just a few inches. I'd gladly take snow or nothing over that!

Enjoy the last few hours at home!

I'm going to Disney World!!

Leaving for FIL's in an hour and a half. Super excited, but we are still a bit anxious about weather. It is snowing pretty hard now. There is supposed to be a lull in snow- maybe some rain. This should happen around our flight time. Girls school is closed for the day; my inservice is now a 2 hour delay. I am SO relieved that we changed our flight.

Later today we will be in warm temps!

Talk to you when I get back.

Update: News just reported that delays are beginning at the airport.
