Oh NOES! Thats the worst! Look at it this way, get all that bad stuff out of the way now. I am about 10 days out and nothing left to do but wait and worry about everything. I fond myself yelling at the kids to wash their hands !!!

Everyone please remember, hand sanitizers will not kill viruses! The most prevalent virus at WDW is a norovirus type of stomach flu. Hand sanitizers are useless for those...as well as most other viruses. Viruses account for 90% of all cold and flu.

Follow the golden rules:
1. Wash you hands with hot soap and water for 60 seconds after the bathroom and before eating( and hope you cooks and servers do the same)
2. Try not to touch your eyes , ears, nose, and mouth. It is the main route of viral transmission.
3. Keep you stress level low, get plenty of rest.
4. Eat healthy foods, plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits.
5. Smile alot!!!
Yes, this is all so very true. I still have a finger-sucker in the family though, so I worry all the time. Oddly, though, I can only think of one instance of one of my kids getting a stomach bug...and even more odd, it wasn't the finger-sucker that got it! Either we are lucky or have very good immune systems. Uh oh, I really hope I didn't jus jynx us saying that...

November friends, pray for us. My sweet DS and Iost part of our hearts as my husband, best friend & best daddy in the world died in his sleep. He was just 39 yrs old.

We were supposed to leave for WDW on the 11th. Why did this happen? Why now??

I hit send too soon.

I'm hoping to still take our trip for my DS. Just can't see past right now. So overwhelmed.

If you've seen me post anywhere else on the boards and want to share there on my behalf, I would appreciate it. We just need prayers & you have become like family.

If something big happens around here, someone PM me. I'm not going to be able to check here as often.

So. Lost. So. Heartbroken. DS was afraid that it was going to happen to him (dying in his sleep). He's been asking me all day if he was going to be just like Daddy when he closes his eyes.

I am so very sorry to read of your DH's passing. Three weeks before our planned trip in March of 2012 we lost my DS 42 in his sleep. My first reaction was to cancel our trip but we did go and I do think it helped me get through the grieving process and back into daily life.

It has to be so very hard and scary for your DS but going on the trip might be the best thing for him too.

Again my heart goes out to you and your DS

No disrespect intended towards the first lady, but Minnie Mouse TOTALLY ranks higher.

It is about hiring veterans. Disney is hosting a convention to encourage businesses to hire more veterans and to help them re-acclimate to civilian life. Great cause, poor timing. She really should have checked my schedule first.
I'd love for them to hire more veterans, particularly DH when he retires from the AF so we can move to WDW and go more often!

I'm laughing about all the tiara talk! DH actually bought me the pink "Minnie ears" with the tiara and veil that has my name embroidered on it when we were there for my b-day- and ensured I wore it all day at the parks! I can't let him see this thread or he'll go out and get me a tiara for this trip.

4 days to go! We just got Mickey mail yesterday: our packet with the discount offers, mini golf etc. vouchers, and new luggage tags! I didn't think we got the packet till we checked in and I thought luggage tags were now only if you are doing DME, so I was surprised!

I already made up the Mousekeeping envelopes, but thanks to whoever suggested leaving candy too! Since we go a few days after Halloween I know we'll have leftover candy to bring. It will be nice to share and make sure the boys aren't completely hopped up on sugar.

Tonight is packing night- aaaaah!

I am so heartbroken for you. As hard as things like this are for us to understand, I don't know how a child is supposed to cope with it all. I do hope you are able to take your trip as it may provide a much needed getaway after everything. This puts things in perspective - everyone enjoy their trips with their families and don't regret anything because you never know what will happen.

I actually have to work till 11pm on Halloween night this year so no kiddies will be getting candy from this house. My DH refuses to give it out. He will park the car on the road instead of in the driveway & watch tv in the basement so it doesn't look like anyone is home. He thinks it costs to much to buy candy to give it to kids we don't know. Insert eye roll here. This will be the first Halloween in a long time that I'm not home to hand out the candy.

I have to work late too and so DH will have to take the kids out by himself. I am secretly a little happy about this as I had to do it last year myself when he worked and it is not easy! Hoping to make it home a little early so I don't miss it all though.

That was the one good thing about leaving at 6pm on Halloween; I didn't even buy any candy to give out since we won't be home!

1 more day!!!! Won't be posting much more because I am really behind in the packing and will be busy.

Hope everyone has great trips and it's been fun.
