Checking out!

Ahh...the last post before vacation!!! I better make it good so that you don't all miss me too much. I should be able to post once or twice while I am gone, especially later in the week, but you are all going to have to get used to the idea of being without me for a bit. Weep, weep.

Chicken fingers last, Munchkin, The Boy and two friends of ours. Munchkin was quite the chatterbox, which is totally fine by me. I feel like she is a really happy kid these days, and that makes me feel good. She is doing great in school, has some great friends, still has the French boy in the picture, and is just basically enjoying life. Basketball season is almost over, and then baseball season starts (or maybe softball, that is kind of up in the air right now.) She is definitely looking forward to her time with Smoking Hot Roommate, and to vacation next weekend.

If I were as organized as Aaron, I would pre-write some posts to be posted as the week goes along, but I clearly am not. I have been meaning to share my thoughts on this preposterous newest "stimulus package" (in short...poorly conceived, wasteful, inflation-inducing, economically crippling), and that would have been a really good thing to pre-write. I am kind of late thinking about it, though, so I doubt it will get done. Unless I have a slow afternoon.

And, I suppose that I could pre-write a birthday post for The Boy next Thursday:-). Yea, that's right...I ditched him on Valentine's Day to hang out with one little sister, and now I am ditching him on his birthday to hang out with the other. Good thing I am so cute!

The weather has cooperated by suddenly getting very cold and very windy, which makes the idea of some sun and a beach all the better! It will be cold and snowy in Chicago tomorrow morning (fingers crossed that we can take-off on time). I checked the forecast, and Orlando looks like it will be in the low 70's while we are there, and then Jupiter will be a touch warmer than that at the end of the week.

Just to recap...we will get to Orlando tomorrow morning (if we don't run into any delays) and be there until Wednesday morning. We will probably putter around tomorrow afternoon, maybe sit at the pool:-), and then do one of the show dinners (the luau at the Polynesian, or one of the things at the Wilderness cabins). Then we will probably spend the next three days at the parks...the Magic Kingdom to start and then play it be ear from there. I will totally giggle to myself when Tinkerbelle meets Tinkerbelle...

Then I am going to rent a car on Wednesday morning, and we are headed to the beach! SHR is picking Munchkin up from school at noon on Thursday and they are meeting us Thursday evening, in time for dinner. After that...just hanging on the beach!

So...try not to miss me too much!

Organized? Ha!

I've been writing these posts ~12hrs in advance. I pre-wrote nearly two weeks of stuff before I bailed for the honeymoon, though.

If you're going to Disney, you need to goto Epcot and have a drink around the world!

I'm so excited for you! A bit giddy, actually. You're going to have so much fun. I'm putting in one vote for the Polynesian Luau! My little sister wanted to move to Hawaii after the show.

Fly safe, drive safe and have fun! I can't wait to hear all about it.

Enjoy and just relax :)

Have a great time! :D

pre-writing blog posts? Now that is organised. I prefer to just go away and forget about it hehehe.
