    i just realised my post count is at 1275, and i didn't even realise i'd hit over 1000.

    too busy posting to pay attention to the details apparently.

    and i used to call myself detail oriented

    *hangs head in shame*




    *edited to add: sorry for the hijack :offtopic:

    Oh Karen - you are too funny!! I'll bet you really are organised!!!
    I do know how you feel though! I'm 5 weeks out now, and I'm starting to have "the dreams"! You know the ones - where you have forgotten to take something, or nothing is booked, or similar catastrophes! I hate it when they start.
    I'm starting my list this weekend. I have days off, and we have to finalise plans for Orlando and Las Vegas! Plus of course the things to do before we leave!
    Good luck with your lists for the "Muppets" too!! Bless them.

    I now have DH glued to the good golly gosh damn weather channel watching Issac.....so I don't need to dream about what may go wrong, I just need to look over at DH and see him grinding his teeth stewing over whether his trip is going to be ruined...

    oh the muppets, yep, harmless and not a brain between the 3 of them..oh well, they mean no harm:crowded: and then add the 3 GK's every weekend to the mix.....oh my poor poor house

    ok, need to lie down again:sad:

    I did my smarttraveller registration yesterday ( thanks Karen for the reminder!! :thumbsup2 ) I'd forgotten what a marathon effort it can be when you're staying in a lot of different places .

    Had my first scary travel dream last night too - can't remember what it is now. I just know I woke up in a sweat. :worried:

    Taking DS for a haircut this afternoon and to buy him some new joggers and a couple of T shirts ( I'd forgotten that teenagers do GROW a bit from one summer to the next... :rotfl2: )

    Now I'm just trying to remember the OTHER things that I told myself yesterday that I need to put on my to-do list!!! :crazy2:

    Looks amazing! Will be interested to hear what you think of Coronado Springs , it was on my short list. The pool looks like it would be great fun.

    Yeah, I hope we picked a good one :lmao: or my DH will note me forget it.
    I am, after all, driving this bus :rotfl2:

    Starting to organize our packing properly today, my legal sick day is now really a sick day :lmao: but I do feel better than yesterday, certainly less snotty.
    Might go get DS some new underwear, I bought some for me, DH got himself some so the kid shouldn't miss out LOL

    I did an order on Disneystore last night as well, $170 but it's stuff that I likely would have bought anyway.
    T-shirts, photo album, kitchen utensils, pin starter kit (for DS).
    Won't need to buy anything when we're there and I got 25% off being all the promotional stuff :hyper:
    Now I just want it ::yes::

    My DH looked at my pile (thats a bit generous even) of clothes pathetically and said "umm is that it?"

    I bought us New York Passes last night, 3 days, choose your attractions, as many as you can fit in :thumbsup2

    This time next week i'll be on holidays!

    I ordered some more cash yesterday, getting my hair chopped Monday week, called the bank, online shopped :hyper:
    Thats the important stuff ::yes::
