Okay I'm taking a chance and saying that spring might be here in anchorage. It's supposed to be in the low 40s all week. Last time we reached the upper 30s for a few days we had two winter storms the next week. It's getting sunny though...we're up to 15 hours of sunlight!
On a packing note....that's my job for Saturday. Right now it's all in piles

So yesterday I realised that we were less than 10 days away from getting in the car and heading down the highway. Every time I recalled this little fact during the day I had a mild panic attack... in a good way, an OMG this is actually going to happen kinda deal where I forget to breathe, my heart pounds and the room spins. Got all our suitcases packed, now I just have to clean the house for the house sitter!

Okay - question for you experienced cruisers -- we are a family of 3 (two adults, son is 4) -- how much sunscreen would you say we will use?

Trying to make a list of those little things I still need to go get

It's just the two of us and I'm bringing two spary bottles and one mini bottle to go in the carry on (we both burn easily though). You can always buy more on the ship for about $15.

I'm trying to avoid that $15 if I can, haha we burn pretty easily too, so I want to make sure we've got enough, but I don't want to go too crazy

Maybe bring two bottles. Are you doing any pre/post cruise traveling in sunny Florida? If so, maybe bring three bottles, so you can reapply often.

Don't stress out ladies!! Just keep calm and think Disney. It's totally okay to call in "sick" to take care of vacation stuff. I'll be crazy this weekend too though--the Alaska Aces (ECHL) are playing in round 2 of the playoffs Friday and Saturday, so on top of those games I also have laundry, packing, photo editing (for a slideshow for work) and a classroom newsletter to write (for work).

In case anyone decides to upgrade at port or changes rooms or just wants to say "hi," I will have a dry erase board on my door (9669). We are not planning on upgrading at port--we're looking forward to trying out the virtual porthole for the first time!

Oh no! There are some posts on the board about a duct tape/no sew FE. I bought mine pocket holder from IKEA for $5 and just decorated it. Do you live near an IKEA?

Oh no!! You can also use a bag. In the past, I have seen disney bags (like the reusable shopping ones).
