Just one of those things

You ever have those times where you just are not even sure how you feel, just know it's not happy, not sad, definately not mad...more of a blah, but not quite?

I'm doing tons of research for our Disney World trip and my goodness I'm so overwhelmed with it all and it looks like I'm going to be the one doing all the planning, making sure we have the best prices for everything. Part of me just wants to scream, but that takes at least a little energy.

I know it'll all work out, but good grief I just wish sometimes things like planning a vacation could just be easy. Maybe I'm just not supposed to work on it tonight and in a day or 2 things will just fall in place. Right now the big issue is drive or fly. They both have positives and negatives. Flying:positive we're there same day, flight is short. Neg. price, although it's less than 1,000. so not too bad. Driving positive, we don't have to rent a car when we get down there, we can take our time and see other places if we want. I think we can get down there on about 100-150 in gas and if we take 3 days driving time, we would only have to stop at a motel/hotel 2 nights which we can get a place to stay anywhere between 30-60 a night. Which if we look at the high end on both that's still only 270.00 to get there or 540.00 round trip that way and that's def. cheaper than flying. Neg. prob a 3 day trip (Jackson doesn't care to travel more than 7 maybe 9 hrs in his carseat). We will all be in the van for 3 days! We will have to get food fast food or resturant at least 1 time every day.  I do think we can eat out for 20.00 a day. We will take snacks, fruit, veggies, and lunch meats for sandwiches for at least either lunch or dinner and we can have fruit, cheerio's, donuts, etc for breakfast, or hopefully at least a continental breakfast where ever we stay. We can have some juices, waters, and yes pop in a cooler.

We just have to figure out what we want to do and how. I know it'll work out and now that I've written all this I feel better. Of course now I'm just tired. Suppose I should get my butt to bed!

Disney World - I'm 22 and that's still my most favorite place on Earth!

My parents (they must've been insane) would drive us down there every year (there are 4 daughters in my family) for vacation. About 18 hour drive from NJ to there, and we'd do it straight through, only stopping for meals and potty breaks. I told you they were insane!

Whether you drive or fly, it'll be a great trip and the kids will love it.

What about Disney Land? Is California closer to you? We went to DL on our honey moon and I went every summer as a kid. I love that place! I have heard there is a good place for military to stay at the one in Florida...did you know this?
