    There are only 45 days left until the trip! So today is the day I need to be paid off by! If it were up to Lou, we still would not be.. so it's a good thing I handle the money.

    And speaking of money, I got a very nice, kinda expensive, haircut. Here's a pretty bad picture of it.. ignore my fake smile, I just got home from babysitting for 4 hours.... :scared:

    And while I was at the salon, I saw this adorable hair clip that I HAD to get. I helped support local businesses and got a cute Disney clip that was pretty cheap. Do you guys like it? :)

    Thank you! I realized, looking at the picture, I got a bit of sun today when I walked the dog.

    My legs also hurt... I need to get in shape so that I can walk around Disney!

    How funny is it that we're having two conversations at the same time on each other's PTR ? :laughing: I'm starting to take the kids on long walks for that exact reason! We can't be huffing and puffing halfway thru our first day!

    Love the clip. One of the moms that Claire went to dnace class with 2 years ago made clips and she made Claire a Cinderella and Aurora one. They are super cute, but Claire for the most part won't wear them. She just doesn;t like pretties in her hair anymore.

    Aww, that's a shame. I need clips to hold my bangs back, because as annoying as they are sometimes, I still love having them.

    And thank you to everyone about the haircut. It was great to wake up this morning, run some gel through it, and be done styling it!
    And it also means I don't need to bring as much shampoo and conditioner to POP, because neither of us will have that much hair. :rotfl2:

    So I was looking at the Disney site, and I saw the discounted room only rates... and although almost all of the dates are gone, they do have the 30th and the 31st of August for AKL and WL. I was considering surprising Lou with one night at AKL, because I know he wanted to stay there, but then decided I'd ask him instead... and he said no, because it would be a hassle bringing clothes around,etc, etc, and that he doesn't want to leave our stuff at POP overnight.. arg.

    I'm glad I didn't do it to surprise him, although I still want to... 140$ is too good to want to pass up! I guess I'll have to save it for our next (far in the future) trip then. :(

    So I just read through everything - looks like you are doing really well on planning!

    I love your hair and hair clip!! Very cute!!

    Also, we have started going for walks after work to prepare for Disney - I'm not used to doing any kind of real walking, so I figure I better get used to some!!

    Thank you very much!

    I actually walked a mile through Boston today - I went to the station to pick up tickets for the bus from Provincetown to his grandparents', and then I walked over to Codzilla to get the tickets for the ferry to Provincetown from Boston from Lou (normally they're 49$ each, I'm so glad he works there!)

    It's such a nice day that it was a very nice walk... and speaking of walk, I have to go walk the dog now... :dog:

    I also just had a very nice walk - I was on my way home from visiting one friend and was still feeling social, so I called a friend of mine that recently moved to New York and took the long way home via the park and talked to her on the phone for like 25 minutes. The weather here is fabulous for it!

    Yay!!! I got mine while I was on vacation - both the Magical Express stuff and the resort info.

    However, I need to call tomorrow about the Magical Express stuff, because Delta called...

    They canceled the non-stop flight that we were taking home, and had either an earlier connecting flight or a connecting flight that got into Boston at midnight. So what did I take? Duh! The first plane only leaves 5 minutes later, but we get home 2 hours later... :scared1: as long as we don't get stuck in Atlanta overnight. (This is what Lou thinks will happen, because we have less than an hour between our connecting flights). They said they could get us on the next day, but that would require booking a whole other reservation, and that would be a pain (although we could do the Animal Kingdom Lodge thing.... ;) ).

    But right before I hung up with Delta, I realized that they were going to call Lou too, and that I had to make sure that he did the same thing as me. But he was at work, and luckily, I had his confirmation number.... he hadn't wanted to give it to me, but luckily, I made him. Go Obsessive-Compulsive Vacation Planning (OCVP)! So now we're both booked on the same flight, and can get left in Atlanta together.... great.

    So I need to call ME and tell them, so that our baggage makes it home with us.

    Lou also got Mickey Mail while we were on vacation... he got the customized maps that I sent him! He really liked them, surprisingly enough, and he even showed his family. I think he's starting to get excited... although he refused to get the 10$ very tasteful Mickey bathing suit online. :sad2:

    I'll see if I can get the woman's one for myself - I could wear it for the cruise next year... and 10$ is a steal! Now.. red or blue.. decisions, decisions.

    And I'll try to get some pictures from the Cape up!
