I am looking forward to something that when we get home means summer is ending.

I relate to this so much! I want to be excited about our trip in August but also do t want to rush it because when we get back it's the end of summer (kids go back to school and I go back to work).

It’s called “amazon now”
Thanks! Hubby knew about it, when I mentioned it.
My renewed DL came in about a week, as did my 16 year old's brand new one, so you should be ok!! Hope you have a fantastic trip and I can't wait to hear about it!
Hope mine comes that quick. Supposed to be a max of 20 days so I should be good.
Ditto what @Rista1313 said about Amazon Now. I used it a couple of years ago when Alaska Airlines lost my luggage for a couple of days, and I needed a few "essentials" if you know what I mean. ;):hilarious: It was incredibly easy, and they were quick too!
I so hope they don’t lose my luggage. :-/ I would freak lol

It is the only thing I hate about our late Summer Labor Day trips! Used to be real bad when we only went once a year. I spent all year looking forward to it then got home and stayed depressed until spring. I hate fall and winter.

42 days to go! Made myself a Grand Mariner Slushie- my glass was broke so I put it a mug 😂

Took little fella back to see Toy Story again this morning and bawled like a baby again.

Quick footwear question- looking at Teva wedge flip flops- anyone have any experience with comfort? I hate to wear tennis shoes in August because my feet get so hot. If I can keep my feet cooler, I am cooler. However, regular flip flops blister my feet like crazy. I don’t like the sandal style. Anyone tried them?

I just bought a pair of the TEVA Voya flip flops and find them very comfortable. (I've never used them in the parks so I don't know if they are ok for that type of walking)! I've only had them a couple of weeks so I hope others chime in! :cool:

Holy smokes!! It is HOT today! 92 and full intense sunshine. So hot that you can’t stand to lay on a float in the pool unless it is one that kinda sinks down so the water can get on you. Guess it is to help me prepare for Florida heat. And at least I have a pool to cool off in! 🔥

32 days to go and I am proud to report that my suitcase is actually under the weight limit by 10 lbs! All I have to add is my blow dryer, flat iron and a few makeup items that I don’t have multiples to pre-pack. (I don’t know why I bother with naturally curly hair in Florida but it starts the day straight) 🙄 I did it!!

On a really bad note, my stuff is out and Stinker went and got his Incredibles suitcase out and put clothes in last night when we were weighing them. I totally caved and sent it to his daddy and said if y’all say yes, he can go. He said no. In all reality, a good thing, since this my last until next fall. (It really is, at least for now) BUT- at least I did not have to be the bad guy.

Major guilt trip like always... but I am going to Disney World!!!! Just me and B!! In 32 days! I don’t care if it means summer will be over shortly after. 27th anniversary at Coronado, my home away from home- Can’t wait to kick back in our hammock, at night for the kazillionth time. It never gets old.

I just hate not having a trip every 3 months like we did this past year.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder though- right? Or is that Absinthe? Just kidding! I have never been brave enough to try it. 😜

💔 Oh that is hard...

But it will be so much fun! Excited for you!
Thanks! It was pretty rough. I felt horrible. We should have been more discreet about packing but it is hard when I have him 5 days a week.
I'm glad Daddy said no.... grandkids are special, but sometimes you just need a grown up vacation!
I am actually glad too, as bad as it made me feel. I want just an us trip. Lord knows I will ship him enough prizes home to make up for it anyway.

I have a pair of Teva sandals, the adjustable type that wraps around the ankles so that my clumsy butt doesn't slip out of them when it rains :) Mine have always provided great arch support and traction. And I only ever got blisters once wearing them and that was actually caused by the moleskin I used to avoid blisters!

I got horrible blisters on the bottoms of my feet from flip flops in the rain. That made me start wearing tennis shoes. The moleskin saved me that time. My feet are insanely small and I have ridiculously small heels so straps never work for me. I can wear a girls 3. 😑 I have been breaking in the teva flip flop style the past two days and they feel comfortable so far. I will be taking my Nikes in case but I know I will be so much cooler if I can stand the flip flops. I hate shoes... lol it is one of the things that depresses me about winter so bad. I would live in shorts, tanks and barefoot or flip flops all year if I could.
