Everyday my son asks me how many days til Disney World? This has been going on all Summer! Thankfully, we are under a month! 28 days to be exact! We are so excited! We really need this vacation. Unfortunately, my husband has been sick all summer. His Crohn’s has been giving us problems since Memorial Day, literally ALL summer! His work has been very stressful also, plus my son started Kindergarten, mixed with my grandmother’s passing, as well as financial issues; we just need a break! Fortunately, this trip is already paid for so we don’t have to worry about that, plus food is included!
I’m a list kind of person. I make checklists for everything. I always have a “To-Do” list. It should be no surprise that I have been starting a mental packing list. Things I need to bring, things I need to buy, etc. Don’t worry soon my “mental” list will be a nice paper list like everything else. My husband used to tease me all the time because I’d put “shower” on my list, no I don’t need to be reminded to take a shower, but it was one of the things on my list, plus it was nice to cross things off, I felt like I was accomplishing things!
I was very disappointed though, a few years ago my husband and I bought a really nice waterproof camera that we loved and unfortunately we realized it does not work anymore. Pretty sure it took one too many falls from the kids and no longer does anything. I just loved that camera because my family just about lives in the water! We took it on our Florida trip last year and it came in handy on our beach days and at the Disney Water Parks. I hate to have to miss out on those fun water moments, but with money being tight I guess I’ll have to settle on those disposable water cameras. Maybe Santa will bring me one this year, Ha!
Once again I’m starting to dread my plane ride with 2 young kids. Maybe I need a list of ways to survive the plane ride! If anyone has any tips for a smooth plane ride please leave me a comment and if you have any things you never leave behind when you go on a trip please share them with me. My brain has been so scattered lately that I need all the help I can get!
