Hahahaha, I'm way behind then!!

I now have about 6 things in my "to pack" basket, and I have a list of things to do inside and outside of the house before we leave. I'm also looking forward to school going back so that the kids can stop wearing the clothes that I want to pack! Work is crazy and sometimes I wonder if there is a light at the end of the tunnel.....BUT:

DH is working away downstairs....
DH15 is writing an essay for school....
DD8 is reading me One Direction fun facts....

....and, this time in 3 weeks we will be out over the Pacific Ocean on our way to meet DH and SIL in my beloved NEW YORK CITY.....so I have nothing to pout about!!

I know - Tink just keeps on floating towards the right - I love it!!

I booked the character breakfast at 'Ohana for our first morning in WDW - we will stuff our faces, jump on the monorail and then spend all day at the Magic Kingdom. We then have dinner at Be Our Guest at 4.40pm.

After that we will head back to POR and relax in the pool for about 5 hours!!

My family are going to be up and at it that morning - no moaning - just GET OUT OF BED!!!

It's time to try a PTR - this holiday is hurtling towards us and I'm worried that it will all be over in a blurr if I don't stop and think a little bit - so, here we go!!

DH has a "conference" in Las Vegas in early May - don't worry, I don't actually think that he's going to get any work done, but he works REALLY hard here at home, so he deserves to go and hang with the nerds at the whatever it's called computer thingy convention.

Saturday 4th of May 2013 - DH leaves us all alone here at home and flies to Las Vegas.

Tuesday 7th of May 2013 - DSIL (hubs' sister) arrives in Las Vegas from London. She's not going to the conference, but they are looking forward to spending some time together - it's been 18 months since we have seen her.

Friday 10th of May 2013 - DH and DSIL will catch the "red eye" to NYC.

Monday 13th of May 2013 - DS15, DD8 and I leave Sydney for NYC. We have one of those quick stops in LA (about 2 hours between flights), hopefully enough time for me to grab a People magazine and a packet of Raisinets after the nightmare of customs!

Friday 17th of May 2013 - DSIL leaves NYC to head home to London.

Monday 20th of May - fly from NYC to Orlando, Magical Express to Port Orleans Riverside where we have a Princess room with a pool view...DS15 is going to be thrilled...hahaha.

Sunday 2nd of June 2013 - fly from Orando to Las Vegas. Even though DH will have been there 3 weeks before - we want to swim, shop and go to the Cheescake Factory!!

Wednesday 5th of June 2013 - fly home to Sydney via LA.

Friday 7th of June - arrive home, cry, start planning next holiday!!

I have a lot of things planned already, I will add more things as I go along.

Enough rambling - now to get DH to set up my ticker - I'm useless!!
Just re read this.... We're @ WDW at the same time!!!
We arrive 18/5 and are leaving 27/5

Hi Fairy Floss - I'm sure that you're as excited as we are - it's so soon!!! I started counting the things that still have to happen around here and I'm struggling to see how its all going to fit in...

....but tonight, after such a busy week, I am in bed early with my iPad reading about everybody else's holidays!! Anything that needs doing is not going to get while I'm this relaxed anyway!!

Gorgeous day outside, I'm in the dark in my shop working away. I just got a visit from the family who are feeling sorry for me!!

It's all good - none of us will be feeling sorry when we get on that plane without any cares!!

I have never worked so hard in my life - the lady that works for me in my shop is recovering from an operation , it's change of season which means it's psycho-town in here , DH is leaving in 2 DAYS and hasn't even started packing , my hair is an embarrassment (my hairdresser 10 steps from my shop yet I can't get time to see her) , and I have no idea what I'm going to pack and we leave in 11 days ......

.....but......it's OK, because...... my lady is on the mend and will be back next week , a psycho-town shop means the bills are paid , DH is very easy to pack for , there is always the ponytail option , and whatever we don't pack we can buy when we get there!!

My glass is definitely more than half full - in 11 sleeps I'm going to the airport!!!

In fact your cup brimith over (where's a frothy beer smiley when I need one!) Good luck with packing-at least your DH hasn't brought home a new, slightly bigger, bag than one of the existing TWO you were going to take and tells you we're packing for all 3 of us into that!!!
