Its bad enough with the pins. I've been avoiding even looking at the vinyl.

What an awesome idea!

I too LOVE vinylmations. Fortunately I blame the purchases on DS, but really some are for me

17 weeks today!

This morning I am taking comfort in the fact that my footy team most likely will not make the finals so do not have to worry that we'll be away for finals time...

My DH would have not let me forget it otherwise

Got my confirmation email to add a child onto my booking at MCO, got that at a great rate $102 USD inc tax

Just two more hotel bookings to make/decide on, LAX and NYC

We really gotta knuckle down and save some $$ LOL

Oh, and my DH came home last night and tells me he got a speeding fine...

he has a work car so it goes there, the dingbat in the office took great pleasure in handing it to him apparently...

More $ we didn't need to spend, his new golf club is getting further away...

Feeling like 1 million Thai Baht right now

Feel like crap, that familiar tingle of a coldsore appearing on my lip...mmm tasty

I'd love to throw my job in, back to it tomorrow

Think i'm going to get some multivitamins, obviously i'm missing something...

yay to only 17 sleeps.

sucks about the fine and the dingbat in the office...

good luck with the accommodation... we did the pod hotel in nyc.. 179 a night for a double room, 149 a night for the single.

might not work for a family, but sure worked for us adults..

carlo has been ill with man-flu and now i'm sick too, so pretty unimpressed...

Man flu facts.....

did you know in 1982 scientists managed to simulate the agonising symptoms of full blown Man-Flu in a female chimp.

She became so ill that her head literally fell off.

I had the flu shot one year. That was the year where I've never been so sick in my life!

With this trip, i'm sort of wondering if i'm overthinking things?

Can you overplan?

I mean you're not going to do everything, it's impossible, but especially on the cruise, so many options/excursions.
I'm thinking i'll choose one excursion, one for DS and another for DH.
I'm not going to go crazy about it
