    Thanks Amy for the good thoughts!

    Thought I'd do one last update before we leave - we leave in the morning! :cheer2: And I am definitely too excited to sleep!

    Hubby had a great check up at the cardiologist yesterday - yeah! Went to work today and found out that my position is one of those "reimbursable" deals where it is being funded by another organization. And lo and behold - I will still be paid if the Federal Government shuts down! The rest of my office will be furloughed but I will need to report to work (or take my vacation like I've planned). They did try to force me to cancel my leave but there is no way I'm canceling this trip! We've spent too much money. But at least I know I'll be getting a paycheck!

    Everything is pretty much packed just need to do a couple of things tomorrow morning after dropping off the dog and cat for their vacation at the vet. Our vet does pet boarding. I'm really going to miss my babies! :sad2: But I know they will be in good hands - we love our vet and the staff there is great and just love our furbabies.

    Well, time to get the laundry out and finish the packing.

    Take everyone!

    We arrived on Sunday and are staying at the Boardwalk Villas. They told us our room would be right near the elevator - no - it is the very LAST door from the elevator! We didn't complain - we're at Disney - and we have a pretty view (we can see the Swan/Dolphin and Tower of Terror. And even saw fireworks last night!

    I came down with some type of bug (I really think it was something I ate yesterday) and have not been feeling well at all, but I'm trying.

    We went to Epcot today, called our planner and Beaute Speciale to make sure they had our room number. So now it's just one more day (if we don't count today). :rotfl:

    Thanks everyone for the good wishes. I'll definitely post pics once I get them.

    OH! We had a message from Minnie & Mickey (who sang "Happy Anniversary" to us) and when we went to Epcot the gal at the ticket counter gave us the "Just Married" buttons when we told her we were renewing our vows Wednesday! :cool1: Gotta love Disney!

    More to come!

    Hi Joanne! I am finally feeling better so it definitely must have been a combination of something I ate and the heat. It was VERY humid and hot when we arrived Sunday. Thank you for the best wishes! You and Paul and have been in my thoughts everyday; we can see the Swan & Dolphin from our balcony and I think of you two. I haven't checked the Swan out (yet) but it looks beautiful. Can't wait to see your pictures next month!

    So I'm up way too early - but I can't sleep - I'm excited/nervous...you name it! And I keep reminding myself "this isn't your wedding day - chill!" and then another voice says "no it's your 're-wedding' day!" :rotfl:

    I'm happy to say I am feeling much better than when I first arrived Sunday/Monday. Yeah!!

    Got a call from our planner - Tanis - yesterday. Everything is set and ready to go she said. Only one "glitch" the three names I requested for the photographer...I didn't get either...I had requested (in no particular order) Amy, Mike Strickland, and Regina. I'm getting Stephanie. Amy is on vacation, Regina is getting married and Mike is her photographer. I'm disappointed but I'm not going to worry about it.

    Last night we met up with our friends who will be attending our "re-wedding" and we had a great time catching up at dinner (we went to Trail's End at Ft. Wilderness). Food was good and the company so much fun! We were there for over 2 hours just talking and nibbling on food.

    I will do a trip report once today is over with and I'm back home. Until then...

    hugs!

    We could not have asked for a more perfect day! The weather was absolutely gorgeous - no humidity to speak of and the temperature was about 80 degrees with the sun shining brightly with only a few clouds.

    I will do a report when we return home and I will add some photos too. I had one of our guests take photos with my camera and from the previews they look pretty good. I can't wait to see Disney's!

    Thank you all for all the good wishes!

    More to follow - I promise!
