It's really starting to come together. The clothes are now folded and going into the suitcase tonight. That would be MY clothes. Ally's were packed last week and Jeff is on his own. He will toss everything together the night before we leave and then the day we leave, he will call me 12 times from work to ask me to "grab this" and "grab that." And I will not so subtly remind him that THIS is why I pack weeks ahead of time!!! So I can gradually add things when I think of them. Silly men..... I took a camera class last week to finally learn to use the camera I got for my birthday last summer. I got a Nikon D5000 because I really wanted a GOOD camera, instead of the little point and shoot that served me so well through all our trips to WDW. I loved the pocket size, but decided I also wanted the good quality photo taker....... But I can't remember a dang thing from my college photography class! And of course that was 25 years ago way back when, when they actually put this stuff called "film" into a camera. And you had to go to a store to get it "developed." Then you tied your bonnet real tight and hopped into the wagon and asked Trigger to take you home...... Or something like that. Anyway, because my oh so observant husband bought me a zoom lens for Christmas - the same zoom lens I already had for my camera...... he told me to return it and get whatever I wanted. And I decided on one on one classes to really learn how to use this stupid thing. So I took the class. And walked out of there feeling prettty good about my skeels........ I think I even heard someone call "hey Ansel" as I left the store. Then today I went to take pics of my FE gifts and I have no clue what I am doing!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen, Ansel Adams has left the building...... I was able to make one adjustment to the settings, so that $100/hour class was well worth it for me to be able to change the ISO!!!! OK, so let's not tell Jeff that I really don't know any more than I did when I walked into the class. I think I will play with the camera, and consult my notes, as Jeff is driving to Florida next week. Nothing like waiting til the last minute!!! Oy vey! Speaking of FE gifts, I am almost done!!! Jeff walked into my office on Friday (I work from home) after a week in Vegas and looked at the pile of FE components and said, "What the he11 is that?" When I told him, he looked me dead in the eye and said, "YOU are carrying it on the ship." Oh, my sweet, sensitive husband...... So now that we are inside TWO WEEKS, it's time to seriously kick it into high gear. And I'm still wondering if I can drop 20 lbs by the time we leave?
