I have to cancel on or before the Wed, the 28th. He sees the doctor on the 27th.

This is one thing I haven't figured out. At minimum DS and his cousin do sugar cookies every year. It's a tradition but I have no idea when we can squeeze it in.

How often is it that someone you know happens to be going to the same place you are on the same day? All without planning together.
Oddly this happened to us with DH's sister. For years we had been talking about a family trip with both kids but it never worked out. I was the only one who had ever been so it was a big deal. Then in fall of 2010 BIL got laid off then immediately found a better job. So he had a great job and severance pay so they decided to go. And he has family in FL so they didn't consult us at all on the planning.

In the mean time, we were planning a short trip to Discovery Cove plus seeing the Rays play in the second round of the playoffs. As we got down to the last week it started to look like the Rays wouldn't make it to the second round. So DSis and I spent one Saturday making an alternate plan to spend two days in MK and stay onsite. We were now 5 days out and liked the backup plan so much that we decided to run with it. Which worked out since the Rays did eventually lose Round 1. We got a family suite at ASMu and made a couple ADRs.

At some point during the week we texted BIL to find out where they were. They were visiting family, hitting the beach and going to WDW so we didn't know their actual itinerary. Turns out they were in a family suite at ASMu. Their last night was our arrival night. So we cancelled our other plans and let the boys swim together at the resort. Total serendipity.

Oh my......as I sit here, I am realizing that this will most likely be the last open/free weekend we have til we leave(dec.18).....looks like I will be making a quick city run to grab things both for the trip and to have at the house while we are gone(house/pet sitter)

did manage to do some grey/black shopping-even took 3 of the 4 kids to experience it(they wanted to) and the youngest said never again-people are crazy....We then asked if the crowds were worse than Disney....she replied "as least at Disney they are nice and dont hit you in the face and take your movie" ....gotta love the kids!

So, looks like a good time to get ready, hit up Wallgreens and then run over to Target and Shopko.....here's hoping the crowds are kinder-DD will be with me!

How's everyone's weekend looking? I need to get my living room all straightened up so I can put up my tree! I made breakfast for dh and I and my son, who is home from college on Thanksgiving break. I need ONE more cup of joe before I will get my hiney in gear!

Today one of my high school friends arranged a "painting" party. We're meeting at a MALL and it's going to cost me $30. I have no idea how this will work but supposedly they teach you how to paint then you make a painting to take home. I'm afraid my hand will just make a Mickey head! Wish me luck

Next weekend is the only thing separating us from vacation! It's also my annual high school girl's christmas party. Yep.....we're all 50 years old and our group of 12 or so still get together the first weekend of december for a christmas party. I'm still trying to find those Mickey head dominoes for my gift for our gift exchange. We play "rob your neighbor" with our gifts and after a weekend together at Lake of the Ozarks this summer 7 of us decided it would be funny if we all bought dominoes as our gift then act surprised that we all thought of the same thing (we played dominoes one night while at the Lake). Actually I think next weekend will be a good diversion for me as I'm really expecting to be

I understand! Hubby is just starting to do his own research on our trip which is cracking me up as I've already done just about everything....but I appreciate his interest in the whole thing. Originally he told me to just tell him where and when we have to go and he'll be there

DH is getting excited too. We went over my spreadsheet the other night and he was saying things he did and didn't want to do. I'm so flipping excited. I feel horrible not taking the kids but I know they'll love their week with Mom-Mom and they only know we are going to Fla. They don't put two and two together and realize that WDW is in Fla. Otherwise we'd be in trouble at least with DS6

Look at it this way....your kids are getting very special one-on-one time with their grandmother! You can't put a price on that. I absolutely adored my paternal grandfather....your kids will never forget this week!
