for 6 days at Disney in FL. Why, oh why, am i sitting here, reading threads, when i need to finish packing, finish printing up info, getting my ducks in a row, etc. etc. etc.!?!?!? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I am truly a master proscrastinator! Maybe that's my super power!<br><br>
So, are you a super-efficient packer, all ready days in advance (like my mom)? Or, are you a last minute packer?

1. I'm jealous, take me with you!!<br>
2. I'm the anal-retentive type who has a packing list word document saved on her computer as a file that she prints out and checks off as each item is packed, then takes said list with her to make sure everything that went on the trip comes back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

Last minute packer for vacation? Not so much.<br>

OOH, I do the checklist, too, but I never thought of taking a copy WITH me! I always worry that I'll forget something that I need to bring home when the trip is over....good idea!

Have fun! I am completely jealous.<br><br>
Last minute packer:<br><br>
Well, DD was 7 days past due date and I still hadn't packed to go to the hospital. I was convinced I would have time in labor because everyone I heard said that labor was slow at the beginning. Well, I had a lightening fast first birth. Ok, maybe not that fast but pretty fast (7 hours). So DH had to come home and empty a drawer into the suitcase.<br><br>
Oh, and another time I left for 7 months overseas. I didn't pack until 30 minutes before I was supposed to leave for the airport. Definitely last minute packer.

Take me, Take me....I'll even pack for you!<br><br><br><br>
I pack at the last minute, especially when I'm going somewhere where I know I can always buy what I might forget (sweatshirt, etc)

I'm still here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I'm the anal one about checklists & that sort of thing ( it never occurred to bring it with me though, Finch, you are truly scary! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) But the physical packing, i just can't get my butt in gear. i think i'm packed now. but i didn't take clothes out for the plane in the morning. Sigh. DD's all set, so that's something.<br><br>
As for Disney, this is her first trip & my mom & dh & i will all be sharing a very cool room at the animal kingdom lodge! we have a savannah view of the animals & dd & my mom will be sharing bunk beds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> i joined a very cool site that breaks down every last detail of the parks & attractions, so i just finished my 16 page tips sheets (for all the parks we'll be going to). That's where i'm my most anal. (my grad school application process was quite the organizational extravaganza!)<br><br>
my cousins are driving down from Jacksonville to meet us for the weekend. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> i'm very psyched to see them! they're Disney pro's, so we'll follow them like puppies for a lot of the weekend.<br><br>
I'll think of all of you while i'm there. Someone promise to pm me links to any "shouldn't miss" threads, ok!?!?
