Alas not even that would make me feel better. My work schedule is just as busy as yours I'm afraid. I can't wait to be seated on that plane.

Thanks after dd's performance this morning I'm tempted to leave her behind, threatening to wag school as I'm running out the door late for work is not cool...sigh...oh well she'll have a very productive week with no tv privileges for the week won't she!

ah well, she is her mother's daughter after all! Poor child has the worst of both of us - prone to drama like her father and confrontational like her mother She apologised profusely tonight, at least she knows when she's overstepped the mark lol.

So 19 days left at work - I have had meeting after freaking meeting today so not much progress made on the to do list, nevermind tomorrow is another day...

this time in 3 weeks we'll be somewhere over the pacific on the way to LA, can't believe it is all of a sudden so close when it has felt sooo far off for ages.

Not much left for me to do now trip wise which is how I planned it but its feeling a bit weird like I should be doing more. I got DD to go through her clothes and make a list of what she wanted to take, not overly happy with some of her choices so I have a couple of weeks to encourage her to change her mind lol
I gave the Mr the job of organising transport to and from the airport at this end which he has pretty much done and he is also going to take the dog for her visit to the pet hotel sometime this week. The only thing I have left to do apart from packing is to book the LAX hotel and cancel the third night I had booked at the hollywood hotel so all on track, which is good as work is a nightmare and DD has a busy couple of weeks with the end of term etc.

14 sleeps to go!

So we are at the 2 weeks to go mark and I am pleased to say virtually everything is done, just need the Mr to take the dog for her orientation at the pet hotel tomorrow and pack our bags which will need to wait until the last couple of days. Work on the other hand is an absolute mad house but i'm sure that will all work itself out in the end and if not, i guess it will show the bosses how much we need an assistant so i'm trying not to worry too much. Now I'm about to go and submit my amazon order so it'll be like Christmas when we arrive at the hotel and have all these packages to open

WOW! Your trip is counting down fast. Enjoy the countdown and don't sweat the small stuff (or the small managers).

Loved checking out your PTR - and the updates to your 'to do' list, I wish I was that organised. We're also gonna stay at LAX the night before our flight out, booked into the Radisson as I was happy with reviews & the fact that it's the closest hotel to LAX (i.e. shortest shuttle trip in the morning). It's also less than 2 weeks before we go too, and I think I need a big written list for my fridge, and my office at work - way too little time and way too many things to do BUT who cares, we're going to DL in 12 Days - Yayyyyy!

so apart from packing I think I can now officially say we are all ready for the trip. My dog had her visit at the pet hotel for a few hours today and loved it, I have been really worrying about how she would go while we are away as it is our first trip away without her. It is such a relief to know that she will be happy...13 more sleeps to go

We ended up with the sheraton gateway, which I think is pretty much next to or across the road from the radisson - signed up for their loyalty card and scored a good breakfast included rate which I think will come in handy before our non catered flight. I kept umming and aahing between the two, I feel like the closer to the trip the more indecisive I get
I have always been a list person, nothing better than the satisfaction of crossing something off the list that and I have such a bad memory that if its not on a list I forget to do it! Wow you are even closer to your trip and will be in DL the same time!

7 days to go!!!

At the moment I am swinging between manic excitement and freaking out about what needs to be done in the next 7 days, at this rate I am going to be an absolute wreck by the time I board the plane.

So I have gone through and printed everything I need, hotel & transport confirmations etc - just need to go through it all and file into some kind of order. DD has selected her clothes for packing, I haven't had a chance to go through it all yet but will do that today and edit as appropriate .
We have the inlaws coming for xmas dinner tonight so most of today will be focused on preparing for that and cleaning the house - hopefully my threats of a painful death if anyone makes a mess will mean we can keep in fairly clean this week minimising what will need to be done next weekend. Unfortunately the dog has selective hearing so not liking my chances there.
Mr has his xmas party tomorrow and mine on Friday, a work lunch on wednesday and DD's last day of intermediate also on friday so it will be a busy week.

I just have this horrible feeling I've forgotten something, but can't think what it is so hoping I am just being paranoid for nothing!
