Shawna - I love how you put Christmas countdown first! I'd be more excited about the 4 DAYS!!!

You'll be happy when you get home and your tree is up already! My DH put the lights on the roof this weekend (NO they will NOT be lit until after Thanksgiving). Have to do that when it's nice out!

As for MVMCP - I would bet Monday would be less crowded, but there's no way to know for sure. I'd go on the day that you think you can feel not rushed, and when the next day isn't a rope drop planned morning. So I would consider what you plan to do the day after too.
I wish I was going to a Christmas party again! The Halloween one was so fun!

I have slow mornings following each party!!! I know...no help there!!! LOL!!! I got the tree up and the inside of the house is decorated and ready!! I will do the outside when Thanksgiving is past,...and Mike will hang lights that weekend...I think I need new ones and I dont want to take time to deal with that this week! I only have my bedroom left to dust and clean! I cleaned out my closet yesterday and we went and got a few new tees for me...also, got some new lounge pants and a new robe! Not sure where my robe or warm lounge pants from last year are hiding, but I think they are gone for good...anywhoo...working on my room tomorrow and will put the luggage in here and start packing up toiletries and such.
We are watching the news and on the edge of our seats!!!! Sheree...did your friend get reelected as judge?
Also, if you are my friend on FB, I don't usually post anything about being gone on vacation....

Still waiting on the election results - it's my boss (the judge) so I really need her to win. I can't work for someone who ran against her - well I won't. I really don't think she will lose, but I'm not seeing any results posted yet. Polls just closed less than an hour ago. Might stay up a bit to see.

Well - I tried to help you! Why don't you ask the kids? Maybe they can come up with a good reason to pick one over the other!!

Does anyone have any tips for deodorizing a hotel room?
We checked into a "pet friendly" room at Fort Riley, and it reeks! My aunt, who rescues dogs, doesn't even have a house that smells this bad. I know there's stuff you can buy to sprinkle around, then vacuum it up, but we don't have a vacuum, so I'd have to track one down somewhere.

I'm also not sure if this room smells worse than most do (I've learned that many military families are particularly careless with their animals, though they are probably the same ones who ditch and get new ones with every PCS, so it may not be relevant). I know that you kind of have to expect some pet smell in a pet-friendly room, but our room in Korea didn't smell bad AT ALL. Maybe it was because it didn't have a couch, but the bathroom here smells the worst, and you would think that would be the easiest part to clean. We're paying a $75 non-refundable pet fee, in addition to $7/day pet "rent" after the 6th night (hopefully we'll be out of here by then). It's just frustrating to have to pay so much, when our cat isn't going to do anything, and the room is obviously already marked by a million other animals, so whatever cleaning they're doing isn't working anyways.

I'm considering asking to be moved tomorrow, but I want to know if I have reasonable expectations, or if moving to another pet-friendly room wouldn't solve anything. If all else fails (and we can't find housing quickly enough) I might just take Puck back to my Mom's house and see if they can move us into a pet-restricted room, until we find our own place. Not the best option, but this smell is making me sick.

unless you poured some Essential Oils around I wouldnt know what else..Tea Tree Oil is antibacterial/antifungal,.. .Lavender will kill bugs, Lemon and Orange are great for cleaning and all will lift your mood/energy level, but I don't know how much it'll help for something this bad!!!

Sounds like you are completely ready to go, Shawna!! Tomorrow is your big day

I'm at 27 days today!!! I've got a birthday party for Chase next weekend (THREE! Can you believe it?) to get through and then I'll be full on Disney prep mode. All of my Mickey Mail showed up this week. Need to call Disney with our flight information today before I forget. I'm hoping the weather doesn't get too much colder than it is right now. My mm and sister are planning on spending the night the day before we takeoff. Our flight leaves at a frightful hour . . . 5:45 am.
