Sounds like my DH! He was a sorter, then a loader, then loading supervisor during his college days. He can pack the trunk and the back of the van with much more than I can imagine it holding. Too bad he doesn't apply the same technique to loading the dishwasher. He's not efficient at all, lol.

That sounds like me. We have a LOT of family in Southern Indiana (all of our family actually) and every Thanksgiving and Christmas I have to cram so much stuff into the van it's ridiculous! Both kids' birthdays surround Thanksgiving, so that trip it is all of their birthday presents and then Christmas is always crazy between the stuff they get and the stuff DH and I get. Thankfully, they are getting into the nicer, more expensive gifts, so I hope to not have as much to deal with this year. I've had to do this for 9 years... I sure could use a break.

This is us, too! We go to my side of the family in KY for Thanksgiving and bring all of our Xmas gifts for them. Then we come back with all of our Xmas gifts from them. We don't open there, so I have to fit all the stuff in plus our luggage and us in the car to get back home!

I feel sick. Like sick to my stomach. I'm so excited about this trip but now I'm just...I guess I'm nervous? I don't know but it's like a knot in my stomach. How could I be feeling so stressed about this vacation? Hopefully when we get there I feel better.

I'm gonna go over my packing list later and maybe I'll calm down!

I know how you're feeling! I feel the same way. It's hard to sleep and I'm running off cappuccino everyday. I have been nervous feeling all week, like I'm waiting on something bad to happen! I know I will feel better once I get through this coming week and I will only have 7 more days!

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.
He'll set all of his stuff out for me and I'll pack it.

16 days until we leave, 17 days until our first park day!!!

Coming here to share my joy since my coworkers and friends have to be tired of hearing about it and DH isn't nearly as excited yet!

DD still doesn't know. She'll know something is up the night before we leave when the dog isn't at home (we're boarding her and leaving super early the next day). I think I'm going to tell her we're going to visit family- not a lie. My brother and his wife will be at WDW when we are too!

I have a stash of movies I've bought to surprise her with and some books for her to read on the way down.

Next week I'll start packing some items- shoes, costumes, books/movies for ride. I also have to seriously clean my car and get new tires!
