Fun Post!

We leave in 20 days, and I just started putting together some toiletries today. It just helped put me in a good mood. Clothes won't get done until a day or two before because I will need to wear them here too. Once all the laundry is done, I'll pack. I've told my sons (21 and 23!) that if they will need anything for the trip, they need to figure it out and get it before we leave. They'll have to pack for themselves this time. My husband hasn't seen the pile in our room yet. I'm sure he'll tease me, but he'll be happy that I'm happy!!

I usually start gathering stuff a couple months in advance. Things such as travel-size toiletries and clothes that I have bought specifically for vacation. I am a bit organized (over-organized according to my husband) and start composing packing lists two months in advance.

I start making a pile a month or so before. The month before I pack a kid a week starting with my daughter. She wears all customs so I like to make sure her bows are made etc. Then I do each son and finally myself. My DH packs his own clothes although I technically "do" pack his clothes. Otherwise, he might not have a swimsuit or underwear...lol.

The PILE - something excited Disney fans start in anticipation of packing for their trip! I noticed many of us refer to 'the pile'. My piles grows and grows until is consumes the corner of our bedroom. But like others mentioned, I cannot actually put the stuff in the suitcases until a day or two before because I need to see the pile, and I would be fussing too much with the stuff in the suitcases, repacking, etc.

We arrive at the YC on 5/29. It's just DS (7) and I this trip. When will you be there? Maybe we can meet by the pool one day?! fun!
I did a mother/son trip with my oldest a few years ago, such a special time! It's the middle son's turn next summer, we talk about it all the time already! We will be at the pool almost daily in the afternoon. I am tall and blond, and will have a herd of 10 people with me. I will keep my eyes out for a mom/son combo. My DD is 8, so maybe the can play!

Thanks for the motivation i.e. lighting a candle under my butt!!!
You can do it!!!

This is funny because we are leaving in 95 days and I want to start putting stuff together now but I'm afraid that my husband might have me committed if I did.

I'm a little obsessive.... New toothbrushes( that get throw out b4 we leave), I have to start now there is just so much and I like all un opened containers so nothing spills in the suitcase

I leave in 25 Days and I already have a laundry basket filled with ponchos water bottles drink powder sunscreen etc. ...I think it's easier to make a list and check things of slowly so you don't forget anything

we go twice a year so we have a home and Disney set of everything. So we don't pack because we never unpack... I always joke we could evacuate to Disney on a moments notice... We start packing the truck about a week before just in case something comes up at the last minute (which it always does).

We are not going until October 2013 and I have lots of things in an ever growing pile in the bottom of my wardrobe.
I have bought all new clothes specially for the holiday and toiletries too, plus few other knick knacks. So they are all sitting in a big pile waiting to move to the new suitcase.
