It's almost time but...

Boo's Wish Trip to Disney is in about 1 1/2 weeks! Excitement is running crazy here but during our visit to my sister's house on Sunday (birthday stuff for her & her son) all the kids managed to get the FLU! Yep, all the kids have the flu and we've been put on Tamiflu. I must sing a few praises for that stuff. None of us (I'm on it too) have gotten seriously ill. We definitely feel crummy-body aches, cough, runny noses, some fevers-but catching it this early is good. I only felt horrible for about 36 hours, DS seems to be really tired and has a mild cough but seems to be OK, DD still feels bad (but probably not quite as bad as she wants everyone to think). Her cough is awful but she's pretty active and chipper until you remind her to "go back to bed and rest-you have the flu" then she's "suddenly" oh so ill again. :)
The volunteers are bringing our travel documents on Sunday. Oh, and our lockdowns for the van and Boo's special needs stroller got approved! YEA!!! We were scheduled to have the lockdowns installed on Friday but I think I'm going to move it to when we get back since I want all of us to rest as much as possible this week and next week is just not possible. I have no idea when the stroller will be here so we're planning to take the wheelchair instead. My new Mei Tai carrier pattern is MIA so I either have to draft my own or not use one. (I plan to draft my own if I can't find it in the next few days.) My sister-in-law just found out she's expecting (very happily surprised!) so I can make her one later when it shows up.
I think that covers all the important stuff for now. I'll post pictures of our trip when we get back. I've decided to get the PhotoPass CD so we'll have lots of pics and I get to be in them too. :)
Have a great week everyone!

3 weeks!!!

It's only 3 more weeks until we leave! Exitement is really picking up here. I've got so much to do and so little time to finish all of it. Nikolas doesn't really understand "we're going to Mickey Mouse's house" but we tell him every day and he just smiles.

I made reservations for November 3 at Play-n-Dine so he can see JoJo and Goliath. They are still his favorites. :)

I've kinda planned which parks will be on what least tentatively. Our wish volunteers are supposed to come to bring our documents a week or 2 before we leave.

Nikolas' CICOA case manager called today and our lockdowns for the van and his new special needs stroller have been approved so if we're really lucky we can take the stroller and rent a regular minivan instead of a lift van. A lift van would be nice to try but it's a lot more expensive. I know we aren't paying for this but there's no reason to be greedy. I wish I knew how much spending money they're giving us and what other things they've planned. I hear Give Kids the World do all kinds of special things too but I'm not sure what'll be going on when we're there. I think the surprises will be wonderful but I have a hard time not being the one doing the planning. It's the OCD in me. :) I'll be back when I know more!!
