Countdown

10 days and counting until we leave for a week's stay at Disney World!!!

Of course, the kids are all excited, but I think I'm more excited than the lot of them. I've never been there myself, although I've made many trips to Disney Land. I think the World is going to be like Disney Land on cack!!!

I just have to get through the next 10 days....

We brought our truck into the dealer for a service checkup. I wanted to make sure all was square before making the drive from the DC area to Orlando. It turns out we need a new transmission. Great!!! Thank goodness the truck is still under warranty, so we're not out of any big bucks that can be spent at Disney.

I have to go through storage to find the kids' Summer clothes this week. Mr. O and I did not do any planning on this trip. We discussed it and made up our minds within 20 minutes. Unfortunately, I packed up our Summer wardrobe the week before. Mr. O will be working in the Midwest next week and comes home late the eve of our departure. Good planning, Mr. O for any (nada) help getting packed.

Oh, and Aunt Flo better arrive soon!!! I'll be ticked if she arrives in Orlando.

have fun at disney, if you haven't already done so, there are some great dining options (Cinderella's castle, characters etc..) that you make reservations for. I def recommend them.
