I'm not going to get too concerned with checking DS and DIL in. They need to have a little say in their arrangements. We'll be there ahead of them anyway, so I can take care of their accommodations then. Just finished shopping at the DisneyStore for nieces and nephews Christmas. Now I don't have to spend my time shopping for them down there. They all get PJ's this year. Got the first batch today. Nice quality. I'm pleased! Ordered the stuffed animals (or princesses) to go with the jammies! They do love their Auntie!

Single Digit Dance!!!!! Update on DIL

Dancin' here! One week from now I will be in my little heaven.

Update--I talked with DS last night. Now DIL is excited about going. No more stress on her part. No--she's transferred it all to me! I was told by Disney I could "split" the meal credits. Now I'm told--NO, I can't do that. So knowing my DS, they will decide to go eat someplace like Sanaa for lunch not realizing it not counter service--or not caring? So, I'll be stressing the entire trip that we will "run out" of dining credits or have extras left over. But hey, DIL isn't stressed at all now!

It's okay for me to stress out trying to keep DIL happy. What about mom being happy? What happened to my refrigerator rule--If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy???? Sorry for the rant. I'm so needing the magic!!!

I think you do deserve to be stress free and happy. It's funny how now your dil is happy and excited after making you feel bad for wanting to organize a perfect trip. I say just forget about it and concentrate on yourself and the people who are truly grateful.
And about the dining credits, explain to them that each person has the same amount of credits and that at least the table service ones are already planned out. Tell them how many credits they have and that they can not go over that quantity. Make sure you check the receipts so you can know how many have been used.

Hope your stress levels go down soon. Would it maybe be an idea to focus on having a good fun holiday rather than trying to make it perfect for DIL. She is part of your family and is going to have to learn that things go great sometimes, not so great others but that the average is worth having.

When my children were little I remember noticing how selfish my DB was when he only considered his needs and I smile when he makes similar comments about other people now he has children. Us mums are so used to thinking about the needs of several people simulataneously that we don't always even realise we do it or that it is a skill that we have learned. That ability to consider all needs and points of view does not come naturally to everyone in some it is a learned behavior and not all people who haven't had there children yet see the full picture when things arrive concerning the wider family. And no I am not saying all young and childless people are selfish but when you have your children it does open your eyes to a lot of things you might be more oblivious to beforehand.

So True!!! Tomorrow the packing begins. And yes, I'm planning on having a WONDERFUL time, but you know how mom can be! We'll see what happens with dining. I guess we aren't so poor as to not be able to pick up an OOP if we need to, but I'm not one that likes THAT kind of surprise. If DIL thinks I'm a planning freak before, she'll be VERY surprised if then decide to use my TS on their lunches!!!! DH had a frank discussion with DS this noon at lunch and he's wanting a primer when they get down there on what they can and can't do for meals if they decide to go "rogue". DH put me on the phone with him and I reminded him that I ASKED him where they wanted to eat and ASKED if they were sure they wanted the dining plan and we tailored where we were eating to what THEY wanted and tailored how we were paying for it by what THEY wanted! So, now they have to play by the rules! We'll see.

But now it's time for me to pack. One blessed week. We went to a Xmas party tonight where prizes were drawn and I won--A MAJOR award. A Galaxy Tab 2! My luck may be changing!
