Oh wow, Maria

Well the only thing i left to do on my list is:Disney Quest tickets, stop mail, call credit card companies, buy more candy for CM'S, and pick up 6 gifts for boys age 11-17. I am really struggling with gift ideas for them. Can someone please give me suggestions? Also the last time I posted, I said that I hoped no other storm would follow Katia well now Maria wants to join the party. I am trying not to worry about it. I say as long as I can still cruise on that beautiful boat, nothing else would matter. Next post will be next week. Let's see if I can keep to the schedule that I posted awhile back.

I'm so excited for you guys!!! Hopefully Maria stays far away, but if not you have more time to explore inside! Whatever happens you're going to have a marvelous time! For boys 11-17, all I can think is candy, or a deck of cards. You could probably get a deck of cards for $1 each. UNO cards can be fun too.

Thanks! We will definitely enjoy ourselves. Thanks for the tip about the teens. The kids are marking down the countdown clock like lil crazy people. My son marked out four blocks at once. I guess he was trying to rush leaving.

4 days left!!!! Can't imagine how excited you guys are!!!

I know you're probably super busy packing and everything, so no biggy if you don't get this til you get back, but how have you felt about the FE? is it too much work? I think it would be super fun but don't want to be stressed with it. I'm trying to decide whether to get involved with ours or not.

Have a super fabulous marvelous cruise!!!

On the road, finally!

On I-10 headed for I-75. We left home a lil late, but not by much. Made it to Tallahassee by my scheduled time to be there. 70 miles from I-75. Well I must say that I have lied, according to my schedule we are behind I also did not take into account the time change. Oh, well we will hopefully make up for it on I-75.

Pre trip and Day 1

The night before I made it my mission to get off of work early if possible. Well no trauma patients came in so I left the hospital at 1030 that night. My wonderful husband had been off of work most of the day. When I got home at 1130, he was just sitting on the couch watching TV. I asked him if he had packed anything else in his suitcase that I had halfway packed, "No he says", so I give him the evil eye and he slowly dashes to the walkin closet to pull out a few things(I mean maybe two items). I told him to check and see what items I had left out for him(this will become an argument later in the cruise). Of course it would all be my fault since I did most of the packing. Well midnight thirty rolls around and guess who has the job of loading the car(take one wifey guess). I took it upon myself since since the TV was clearly more important than packing for a vacation. After all is said and done, showered and in the bed around 1am.

I didn't have any trouble falling asleep and 4:30am came before we knew it. The alarm went off and I promptly jumped out of bed like my PJ'S were on fire. IT WAS TIME TO START OUR VACATION! I tried to get the hubby up, but that was like pulling teeth. I had the kids up at 5:00am dressed and fed by 5:15am.



Meanwhile Jerome is still in the bed rolling around fighting the inevitable (and if he flips in that bed one more time I am going to blow my top). He finally drags himself out of bed at 5:30. I wanted to be out of the house by 5:30, so the start of my timeline was falling behind. We left our driveway at 5:51,then Jerome decided he needed to stop by Walmart and pick up some undershirts (I wanted to ask him why didn't he do it the day before since he was off of work early). I didn't want to argue so I left that one alone. While he was in Walmart I went to McDonalds to get breakfast for us. Which went like this 1 sausage biscuit for myself(this part has a point I promise) 1 egg mcmuffin for Jerome, 2 egg mcmuffins for Jayden and 2 hashbrowns for Nakyla. I get the order then head back to Walmart to get Jerome. I park and start to hand out the food to the kids. Low and behold they left out Nakyla's 2 hashbrowns(partial meltdown #1). So Jerome comes out and we head back to McD's to get her hashbrowns. We ended up getting on 1-10 at 6:11(41 minutes late may I say). 10 minutes into the ride, Nakyla eats half of her hashbrown, then declares that she don't want the rest and Jayden also declares that he can't eat his other Mcmuffin
What is my response to those two lil people that just wasted my money.........

Thanks for the FE gifts

We were on the same cruise and had the most amazing time. I am so glad I didn't listen to the negative comments on the board. Thanks for the FE gifts, they were great. Hope you all had as magical a time as we did.

Thank goodness the storm on CC day stayed out over the water, I got a little worried listening to the thunder.
