Disney Bound!!

2 Oct

Last year when I ran #alltheraces that runDisney could throw at me, I spent a LOT of time in both Florida and California! So, it’s a little surprising to me that when I head down to Orlando this morning it will be only my second trip all year! And, for the first time EVER – Phred gets to come with me since we’re staying with friends and not a Disney Resort. (seriously Disney, join the pet-friendly generation!)

Note for those who like to bring their 4-legged kids along on planes — If you book a Southwest flight but you end up flight sharing with AirTran, you cannot make advance reservations for your pet! Which can cause much stress no matter how many times you call both AirTran and Southwest…I’m not highly trusting of the “just show up at the airport with your pet” method of planning!!

One day I will learn to plan and pack ahead, where “ahead” is not as I should be going to bed the night before travelling. Or the morning I leaave! Postponing packing leads to overpacking that’s for sure. And forgetting things. And stressing about that little bag of Disney gift cards that you KNOW is in the office but the office hasn’t been cleared up in a while and vowing that I WILL find it before I go down for Wine and Dine!!!

On this trip, I’m not participating in any races (I am volunteering instead!), though should get in at least 2 runs since I have not been so good on the training front this week… so no costumes being packed – just Ears!! Plus some of Phred’s things! A

nd I’m using my brand new suitcase!! It’s tiny on the outside but holding a lot of stuff now!!

I might even bring that neck pillow I won also! Give it a test run 😉

But first I’ll log in at work and make sure I’ve sent out everything I need to send out, and set up my “Out of Office” email message!!

 

Let the Countdown Begin!!!

Well folks, it’s almost Thanksgiving! That means it’s almost travel time!! It would really be helpful if I had actually unpacked from my LAST trip right?

Luckily, going to Houston is generally a pretty casual affair — and usually I pack all wrong!! I try to bring something a little more dressy than yoga pants or jeans (shorts?). This time, for reasons I may write about later, I’m making sure to pack a nice dark dress.

I wish I had one of these!!!

I’m bringing paper work to do, since I still can’t work remotely and my manager wants me to be able to bill some hours on Tuesday and Wednesday (Friday is a holiday but I may still do a couple hours then, depending on what’s going on!)

There will be baking with my two favorite assistants on Wednesday afternoon and side-dish making with the Chef de Cuisine for the week – my brother! I plan on attempting home made rolls (instead of the store-bought ones we usually have – but maybe there should be backups!) and I am going to bake a couple of great items from Sally’s Baking Addiction — LOVE her recipes!! Love.

So lots of eating, lots of baking (I try to fill up Pop’s freezer!) and lots of togetherness!

But first? I have a long list of things to get done today!!

It’s Tuesday. Not Friday.

You want the truth? You want the TRUTH? Okay…I think you CAN handle the truth!

It’s Tuesday. It’s not Friday. That’s the truth.

Truth also is that I am STILL not packed for Disneyland.

I have clothes on the bed, I have clothes hanging to dry and at least I finished my Mouseketeer shirt for the Half Marathon.

But I am not packed!

Which means, tonight is packing night. Full on, close the suitcase packing night.
