I am nervous about this weekend. I mean, it has been five years since our last big family vacation. A vacation where we actually were gone longer than 3 days, we fly, we leave all of our cares at home. A vacation where the kids have been saving their coins (in a big jar...I will be cashing that in this week), working on earning "Disney dollars" by behaving and helping. A vacation we have been anticipating for years.
It will be here on Saturday.
But here is why I am nervous:
1. We are supposed to have a major snowstorm on Friday night (we leave early on Saturday morning)
2. We have had 2 sick kids and one sick dad the past few days and now I feel a bit achy and have started coughing. What about the other 3 kids?
Here is why I am okay with my nervousness:
Our travel agent encouraged us to get travel insurance.
And many of you might think that was a waste of money...but the last time we went to Disney we had three kids with fevers hitting 104 and coughing every night. Needless to say, it wasn't the best vacation.
I hope we will be leaving on that jet plane on Saturday...healthy and happy AND WARM!
