    Well, Katie, I know all about being sick right up to departure day. And because of my wealth of experience, I hereby predict that everyone be healthy BEFORE you leave. And there will be no illness at Disney! :thumbsup2

    Thanks everyone! Patrick was still feeling yucky at times yesterday but overall, is much better. Greg said he was a lot better, he even managed to help with quite a few things on the to-to list! he helped pick up the house, mowed the lawn, took the boys for haircuts and helped make our t-shirts!

    I managed to run several errands, did most of the laundry and pick up the house. I'm tempted to declare the laundry done but since in my battle of the germs, I stripped all beds clean the other day (blankets, comforters and all) I just don't want to face that mountain when I get home. School clothes on the other hand can wait! Won't be needing them for awhile :woohoo:

    That really just leaves me with packing suitcases today and a couple errands on Monday. Last night, we grilled up quite a bit of food so the next 2 days means no cooking, just cleaning out the fridge

    Tonight I'll make a final PT update to fill you in on the plan!

    Fingers crossed that everyone leaves that illness behind at home! You know, maybe it's best that they got it before you go and then you'll all be ship-shape for your splendid 15 days! :)

    Thanks for the recipe by the way! I'm going to try it the next time I go to the states and get some more cornbread mix. It's hard to find here as I mentioned....I'm excited to give it a shot!

    I can't believe you only have another day and a half to go! Woot Woot!!
    :) :) :)

    Oh my goodness, with just a few hours to go I have not accomplished everything yet!! :scared1: I am starting to pare down the jobs to the minimums. I normally like to clean the house pretty well so it looks nice to come home to. I guess if I don’t vacuum or clean the toilets before leaving, the dirt isn’t going anywhere. :rotfl:

    I got all the errands finished today (including my last day of work :cheer2:) and just have my toiletries to pack in my suitcase but all the other bags are already in the van ready to go. I was going to do my nails tonight but I’m starting to get pretty tired so I think I will pack them in my carryon and maybe do them tomorrow afternoon.

    Patrick still wasn’t feeling great this morning and rested quite a bit today. This afternoon, he seemed better. I think he’s now feeling nervous about the plane ride, in 2008 he threw up on the plane (I think it was jitters, he tends to become physically sick from nerves) Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better experience!

    So here I give you…THE PLAN!!!!!

    Tuesday the 7th
    • wake at 2:30 am, finish last minute things and head out
    • Flight leaves at 6:00 am and after a ½ hour layover in Milwaukee, arrives in Orlando at 11:30
    • ME to POP, Check-in, lunch in the food court
    • Swim until the room is ready
    • Dinner at WCC

    Wednesday the 8th
    • Magic Kingdom day
    • 10:00 (cross your fingers) breakfast at Chef Mickeys. The woman who had this reservation gave me her ADR number. The thing that makes me nervous is that it’s for 6. I think I will give her name and say she and her hubby didn’t make it…that should do!
    • Probably an afternoon break followed by more MK time in the evening

    Thursday the 9th
    • Animal Kingdom day
    • We will probably spend most of the day here topping it off with dinner at Yak and Yeti

    Friday the 10th
    • Star Wars Weekend at DHS
    • Most of the day will be dictated by the boys desires. Probably looking at autographs most of the day as well as the Jedi Training Academy and the Padawan Mind Challenge.
    • Dinner at Cape May

    Saturday the 11th
    • Open day (waterparks, DTD, whatever!)
    • Dinner at Ohana

    Sunday the 12th
    • Magic Kingdom day
    • Breakfast at Crystal Palace
    • Probably stay through the afternoon parade and call it a day
    • I’m really hoping to get together tonight with Anita and Jen this evening!!

    Monday the 13th
    • Epcot day
    • Probably doing FW in the morning then taking a break before returning for an evening in WS
    • Dinner at Biergarten

    Tuesday the 14th
    • Another day off
    • Dinner at Hoop Dee Doo

    Wednesday the 15th
    • Hollywood Studios day
    • Lunch at Sci-Fi
    • Probably another short day

    Thursday the 16th
    • Animal Kingdom day
    • Dinner at Grand Floridian Café

    Friday the 17th
    • Free day #3!

    Saturday the 18th
    • Epcot day
    • Lunch at Teppan Edo
    • Hoping to catch the Eagles tribute band this evening

    Sunday the 19th
    • Hollywood Studios day
    • Lunch at Mama Melroses
    • Topping off the day with Fantasmic

    Monday the 20th
    • Free day #4

    Tuesday the 21st
    • Magic Kingdom day
    • Lunch at The Plaza
    • Our final night in the world with ELP and Wishes…the perfect ending!

    Wednesday the 22nd
    • Flight out of Orlando around noon
    • Home by dinner time
    • Crash for a couple days to recover!!

    I’ll be checking in from time to time to say hi. I’ll also be updating on Facebook often!
