New Development : Thanksgiving just got easier
Magical, forgiving, and beautiful pixie
dust has dusted my shoulders!! I have just received a phone call from Jasonís family that they will no longer be coming to our house for Thanksgiving.
Normally, I would be completely and totally offended by this drastic turn of events, but with my Disney trip hanging in the balance, this was a gift from those little pixies which fly around us each and everyday.
They seemed to come to the sudden realization that inviting themselves over to our house this year was probably not the best idea. Of course, too bad they couldnít have thought about this 2 weeks ago when Jason informed them that we were leaving that night for a 10-day vacation!!
Anyway, turkey has been ordered out to our local meet house, so no need to worry about anything, they will cook and prepare the bird. Mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and all the rest are easy to buy pre-made at the store. Yes, I am cheating and I do know this!!
Weíre only feeding my parents and grandmother, and my father-in-law, so Iím not too worried about this turn of events.
Only a few more updates left before I post my farewell on Thursday. The fax to AKL has been written
and faxed over to the resort. Iíve confirmed my reservations with TTC, although so far Iím a little less than pleased with their customer service.
Iím a little worried about using them after some of the reports Iíve read, but if I donít like the service on the way to the resort, Iíll make sure to call Quicksilver or Happy Limo for the way back to the airport. Airline reservations are all confirmed and they are just waiting for me to get onto the plane!!
All the laundry is done as of yesterday,
but Iím sure Iíll do another load on Thursday morning just so that we can come home with just our suitcase full of dirty laundry. House is clean, mail is being picked up everyday and all the bills are paid. My suitcase doesnít actually have any clothes INSIDE it yet, but it is open, laying on the bed waiting for the clothes to jump in. Since Iíve now finished with all the laundry, clothes can now get packed!
I'm picking up the second large suitcase from my parents house today, of course Jason hasn't even thought about packing yet (at least all his clothes are clean now!!), but I'm not going to worry about it. If he forgets something he'll have to deal! Update:
Jason, somehow, managed to figure out that we were going to do the the Steam Trains tour for his birthday gift!!
Sometimes I think that boy is too smart for his own good Ė but I will get him back! Since he learned about that birthday plan, today I went out and bought a brand new Nikon lens for his new digital camera. It's a present he won't be expecting. Letís hope he doesnít see me pack a wrapped present in my suitcase!
Iíll post on Thursday evening before we leave how Thanksgiving went.
And yes, crazy people
do 90-minutes of aerobics on Thanksgiving morning. Actually, itís one of the most fun classes of the year because everyone knows they will pig out that day!! Up Next: Departure Day!!!
