Today is my last free day LOL. I don't want to start our laundry (mine/dh) or cleaning until tomorrow and everything else is done.

I've been thinking about how to help dd while we're away. She's just been through this bad breakup and is struggling to not text her ex. So I thought about trying to only use my phone minimally but I have this thread to keep up and that's something I really want to do. So I think what I'm going to do is have her report to you sometimes. She'll be using my account so I'll just have her start with "Kate here..." I think she'll like that.

This sounds fun also if you will do photos with a camera you may could let her participate in helping with choice and upload of those each evening ;-) We have nooo problem with photos lol ....it's getting closer :-)

Here's a fun and expensive potential snag... my phone is currently sitting in rice ugh! One thing is for sure, if this doesn't work, I'm surely not meant to tour Daytona Speedway during this trip

ok, so I am completely packed! I'm the only one

Tomorrow now looks like this:

10am Pedicures for me and dd
12pm trip to my new school
1pm picking up my new phone
4pm taking dd to the pediatrician for her preop appt

Wait for my brother to arrive between 9:30 and 10 and then it's off to bed. We're leaving at 3am Friday morning.

Oh, btw dd is very excited about being my cadet reporter so that's definitely a go.

Being phoneless will make updates tomorrow difficult.

Oh NO! My screen cracked last month and pathetically it was the saddest week of my life until my mom offered up her upgrade for me (32 and still spoiled by my parents).

I am getting so excited!! I was looking over finances last night because of the phone debacle (I'm getting a new iphone btw, never had one before, wish me luck) and found some money I had squirreled away in the savings account and forgotten about so I'm totally psyched. This means we will be doing a tour of Daytona International Speedway. I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE NASCAR fan so just the thought of being in the speedway gives me butterflies in my tummy. I can't wait for my kids to actually be able to go to a track. None of my family really cares about racing at all so I have this (probably futile) dream that being at the actual track will spark more interest.

I need to get off here and get some breakfast before it's pedicure time

Does anyone know how to post a pic to the boards from an iPhone? I thought I read you can post pics directly to the boards from the app but I don't see how. I'll be able to search later from my laptop but I just thought I'd ask. I was going to post a pic of my kiddos at South of the Border (

We're in Daytona having dinner. Hopefully I can figure out how to post pics later tonight. The view from our room is awesome. We're headed to the beach and/or pool after dinner.
