This is only our second trip to the World, but wow, are we doing it in a strange way... So, we decided that two years has been long enough to wait and started planning a trip last spring for December 2009. Some background info: I am an only child. My parents and I were in MK for one day when Epcot was still being built. We had a great time and I always wanted to go back. After DH and I took our boys on Sept. 07, I came home and told both parents that they really should go with us the next time. However, DDad and DMom have been separated for four years and she moved in with us when we moved to a new home a year ago, so the situation around here can be quite strange, stressful, funny, bizarre depending on the day and what they or the lawyers have had to say to each other.. Since DMom is still a military spouse as they are only separated, our original plan was for DH, DS7, DS5, DMom and me to go together at stay at Port Orleans in the rooms for 5 with a trundle. We would get the military rate on the room, the five military companion tickets and have a great time. Then I started to feel a bit guilty that we hadn't asked DDad. After all, he was the one who put in 20 years in the service, so shouldn't he go, too? But Mom was there and put up with a lot for much of that time, so shouldn't she get a vacation without him for the first time in years? So the guilt gets the better of me and I invite DDad and he says yes. Now we need two rooms so the plan now is to stay at Pop: DMom and me in one room DH and DDad in the other room DS7 and DS5 move between the two at will I am a planner, my DH is used to it, DMom thinks I'm nuts to plan or get excited so early, DDad will probably want to take over and run everything, and I'm wondering what I got us into And we want to surprise DS7 and DS5 so told them that we're we're going in April. That way they can be a part of the planning without knowing it. To top it all off, we're arriving on DH's birthday and will be there over DS7's 8th birthday. Now I'm wondering if I'll make it through to December 12th, or if I'll end up locked up somewhere for strangling a family member!
