We can do online check in on Thursday and I'm just so excited. I love the Poly - it has such an amazing atmosphere. Here's a bit more pixie dust for a magical vacation!!

Just did online check in and spent a good hour cleaning out my car. I'm pretty much packed(except for last minute things) but DH doesn't want to pack until the day we leave...if he forgets anything I don't want to hear it haha.

I have six more days of work left and eight days until we leave.

My husband is the same way. Does laundry and packs the night before.

No, I used to pack for DH, but then he would complain because I left this or that behind (usually they were t-shirts that he didn't need to be wearing infront of children anyways) and I wouldn't hear the end of it throughout the entire vacation. So I stopped packing for him and he packs his own stuff, usually forgetting some critical thing that we have to buy from the shops later.

DH and I usually pack together the night before. We have stuff set aside that we know we are going to bring and don't need at home, but for the most part it's a quick process as we have done it several times before.

Yeah, I say to all the husband bashing - but whatever.

My DH is a much better/faster packer than I am, having lived for years out of a suitcase due to his profession.

We both wait until the night before and are able to pack pretty darned quickly. I have never packed for him, nor would I ever, any more than he would pack for me. He's not a little kid or something. I honestly wouldn't even know what to pack for him. I don't know which shorts are his favorites, or which underwear don't ride up on him, etc. Which shirts he wants to wear? He likes certain materials when it's really hot - I don't pay attention to which ones those are. He can do his own packing.

We also stay offsite where there is a washer/dryer, so we don't need to bring all that much. I have started making the small pile of "stuff" (camera, tickets, rain ponchos, etc.) but will go through it the night before and double check that we have it all. We also rent a car, so we don't get too uptight if we forget something - a quick ride over to Super Target or something and we can get whatever we might have forgotten - no biggie.

I'd like to think that's not what I was implying. I'm already packing for myself so it's just as easy for me to do it. My husband is smart enough, though, not to complain if I forget something.

I used to pack for my DH, until we had kids. Our oldest is 5 yo and DH will still be surprised when he figures out the night before that I'm not packing for him.

This trip though I have been sorta pre packing for him. Don't want to find out the night before we leave that he doesn't have enough shorts/tshirts/etc for the trip. I've been there/done that with him. He changes in clothes size so much it's hard to know what fits him. He rarely wears shorts, except to the gym.

I pack for DH, because he wants me to and I have a certain way of packing things. He lays out his things and I pack for him. We work together like a well oiled machine!

My DH worked for UPS during college and is a packing master. Not just packing his clothes etc., but when he packs the back of the car it's like a real life tetris game!
