Trying not to panic...

we are 8 sleeps away. The kids have been to the doctor today. They both have swollen tonsils, glands are like bolts and bunged up ears. They are on antibiotics and we have a reassessment next Wednesday. If it's this virus I had it was over two weeks to come right. &$!@

Okay drawing a blank... who is Glen 20? I can't find him on the DisBoards.

DH just came home with more USD cash. I told him to get small bills for tips. He's ruddy come home with $100 in $1 bills, $500 in $10's and $400 in $5's. Can you see why I don't involve him in the planning?!! 100 one dollar bills?! 'Oh well, we'll just have to order loads of room service on the cruise,' was his response to my eyebrows shooting off the top of my head.

Hooley Dooley - now that must be a massive wad of cash!! I told my DH and he's sticking up for your DH - "He probably went to a lot of trouble to get all those $1 bills!"

Hope your kids get over their virus really quick too !!

He's sort of followed instructions. I said 'get a grand and make sure some of the money is small bills for tips'. DH reckoned the teller at the bank who bought him his order was like 'you don't want me to hand count it all out to you, do you?' looking worried. Oh well, the kids were going to get some spends if they behaved these two weeks leading up to the trip, so I guess they are getting singles and fivers.

The kids are quite chippy. They know they take off this time next week. Now I just have to get thru the emotional farewell at the airport between one of the four year olds and his beloved girlfriend. They've both said they'll cry and hug each other - you should see what it's like when one goes away for a long weekend and they are reunited at kindy, the teachers have to hide their faces as they are laughing so hard.

Oh - that sounds so cute!! I'd be laughing too, I think!!! Love to see a photo of that!!!
Hope the kiddos are over their viruses too. There are some really nasty ones doing the rounds over here at the moment and I'm trying to keep myself away. Had the flu badly in June and don't wish to repeat that, thanks all the same!!
Love the $1 note story!! You'll need a fat wallet for those!

I too got about 100 or so US$ notes from the bank before we went. However, it was a few months before because I started paying my girls pocket money in US$ instead of NZ$ and offered them random jobs to do around the house for which were paid US$ It was a great way of enforced saving for the trip. Hmm, in typing this, I wonder I should do the same now in the lead up for our Hawaii trip

We keep running out of $1 notes so a hundred sounds good to me I hope the boys feel better soon and make sure you buy anything you think you might need if there not better before you leave it is a nightmare trying to get some medications and vitamins over here I can't believe how different our over the counter stuff is.
