DH randomly does this stuff too. My favorite was about a month ago when he decided DSis would really like to go to that BOG restaurant so we should get reservations.

I'm very lucky my parents are keeping them and that they love to spend so much time with them. Some day they'll be "to old" for stuff. Taking advantage of it now for sure. I love the memories they'll have.

My parents have left my in-laws and are on their way back to Northern Wisconsin with our dog in tow. DS is sad and doesn't understand why she has to go to Mimma and Papa's and why can't he go with her...waiting for Thursday is going to be torture!!!

I need to vent a bit as I'm very unhappy with Small World Vacations right now.

As I said earlier this week, I was supposed to get my Mickey Mail last week from SMV and didn't. On Sunday I emailed my TA and she told me that they had received the paperwork but it was wrong so she requested new paperwork. She emailed me again Tuesday that they had received the correct paperwork and she mailed it Priority Mail that day.

So the update: I received it yesterday, but it was only the luggage tags and coupons you get with a package. I emailed her again last night that I didn't get the DME packet and DME luggage tags. She called me this morning and told me she screwed up. When she ordered the new paperwork she didn't ask for new DME info, and tossed the old stuff. So I won't get the tags or packet since I leave in 5 days and there is no time. Now, I do know I can just go to the desk and still take DME, and I was planning on getting my luggage myself anyway, but I'm still not happy about this. I was planning on using the packet and tags in my scrapbooking for the trip, and now I can't. Not to mention how much stress it's added to an already stressful week right before my trip.

Yes, SMV is free, but that doesn't make it okay to screw up. If anything it's worse since I have no recourse and they have no real incentive to not make mistakes like this. While I certainly won't let it ruin my vacation, I will also certainly never use SMV again, even if it did save me money since they had an exclusive discount. I do plan on saying something to them about the mistakes and my displeasure about them, as well as telling them the good things too since that's only fair.

Anyway, thanks for letting me rant. Here's hoping nothing else goes wrong before I leave!!!

Otherwise we'd be in trouble at least with DS6
I'm hoping my MIL will watch the kids next October. I wish DH would ask her already! I think he just expects me to do it : I think because we get a long so well he forgets I guess if I have to wait for a 7 month window it's not doing any harm! However I would like to know what the thoughts were 3 vs 4 nights....

Terri - I'm sorry to hear your FIL might not be up to the trip.

Sean - I love hearing about your wedding! It's wonderful how excited you are, and I like hearing this from a guys perspective.

Taaren - I'm so sorry to hear about your grandfather, but I'm happy that he seems to be doing better.

I think we may go see Rise of the Guardians today or maybe Wreck-it-Ralph.

I didn't do any shopping on BF. We don't really need anything. I do need a new long winter coat but I'm waiting to buy that until after we get back from Disney.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Can you contact DME directly? We booked really late once, and I had to call for DME tags. They overnighted them to me.

it will all be ok in a few days when you are at wdw!

I'm much better now that I vented about it!

I feel...okay?? Still a little stuffy and sinuses bugging me, but no worse so I'm hoping the Airborne is helping and by Thursday I'll be fine!!!

Because she booked it for me it has to go to SMV, then me, and I guess she doesn't think they could get it in time since it would need to be overnighted to them on Monday, then overnighted to me on Tuesday since I'll be at the airport 5am Thursday.

I'm just focusing on the being at WDW soon part. I know it will all be okay. And I might still have my packet from February to use pieces from for my scrapbooking, I'm going to look in a bit.

Well, interesting morning at my house. I wanted to finish some more of my decorating and asked DH to get some things from the attic. All of a sudden I hear a crash and some load cursing. DH stepped in the wrong spot and partially crashed through the roof of our front porch. Thankfully he wasn't injured but now we have an unexpected repair bill three weeks before Disney and a month before Christmas. I left a message for my bil, who is a contractor, hoping it will be easier to repair than it looks.
