Well, the cleaning and packing got done yesterday. I even did the load of laundry that I was supposed to do on Monday. Yay!

So now I'm at work with my suitcase. Just under 8 hours until I leave here and start my trip. Eek!!! We have a lot of buffer time from when I leave work at 4pm 'til the flight leaves at 7:30pm, so we're going to check our bags, go through security, and then eat dinner somewhere in the airport.

I'm almost on my way!

Of course, I switched purses and forgot my work keys at home, but so far that's the only speed bump I've hit. Then again, it's only 8:30 here. Haha!

Eek! One week from today I'll be in Atlanta waiting to get on the second leg of our flight to Orlando I still have NO clue what to pack because the 10 day forecast seems to change every time I check the Weather Channel App on my phone, but at least the pile of stuff in my in-box at work is shrinking!

Ugh. So sorry work is so bad right now! Try REALLY hard not to stress about it too much and let it ruin your trip. It sounds like whatever is going to happen is going to happen and you'll be stuck with the fallout no matter what, which I know from way too much personal experience totally stinks, but I have learned freaking out about stuff like that doesn't help the situation and just makes you a total wreck!

I commend you for being able to get ANY work done today. I'd be so excited I'd be bouncing off the walls of my office all day!

Our son had fun playing the wizard game. We walked up on almost every ride, it was great. The only time we waited longer than 10 minutes, was for Sum of all Thrills, which is great by the way!

The weather was fantastic! I brought 3 pair of long pants and had shorts on 99% of the time. I checked the temp last night at WDW, at 2:00am it was still 69 degrees.

I would say the temps were between 65 - 78 ish in a 24 hour period. Really just perfect weather. Loved the lights! Loved the Beauty and the Beast show at HS. Loved the CP! Brought tears to my eyes, so powerful and moving.

I purchased four t-shirts, red MVMCP, with the glittery tree on the front, the lavender fantasyland T, gray long sleeve with Dumbo on the front and at the UK pavilion I got a white T with a pic of Minnie sitting on her throne (like the queen).

I really went crazy buying Christmas gifts etc. I couldn't believe all the cute merchandise, in every park!

Now it's pretty much back to reality. Wrapping gifts and trying to prepare for Christmas. I still need to go through our photo pass photos. We had our picture taken at every opportunity.

You all are keeping me in the Disney frame of mind, can't resist checking in now and again.

Those of you who have not left, have a fantastic time and those of you that have returned, I can't wait to hear how much fun you had?

Happy Holidays!

Linda
Welcome back! Sounds like you had a fantastic trip and did loads of shopping like a good Dec. Dis Roll Caller

Ha! I really don't have a choice. There's a lot that needs to be taken care of before I leave today.

This is so par for the course of major vacations and the days leading up to them! Best thing right now, is just put all your focus on work and get through the day... Don't think about the vacation or what needs to be done because when the work day is over - your vacation will still be there. It will make you feel better to know you've done all you can. And if you do end up having to work from the World then know you're still at the most magical place and all your hard work the past year has paid off... cyber flowers, my friend.

thank you! I just had to get it off my chest. I'll know in 40-60 minutes whether I need to be in crisis mode or not.
