Disney World Vacation:
Planning, Prepping, Packing and Postponing a trip of a lifetime and things I learned along the way.
Keeping the story going: It was now the week before Thanksgiving and I was looking at my clothes, trying to make outfits in my mind. I had to pack two suitcases, one for the time before and after the trip when I would stay at Alison's house for about a week and one suitcase for the trip.
Everything I read about what to wear at the Parks talked about layering in December. We had already been shopping for some lightweight 3/4 length sleeve tops that we could layer under a light sweater or jacket and some nice scarves to liven up the outfits. We planned to wear capris and take several pairs of sneakers.
I am obsessive about coordinating my clothes. I started making lists. If we were going to be there for 6 days, should that be 4 or 5 capris? What colors would I go with. Navy, black and gray with colored tops or white tops and different color sweaters. What about jewelry- you'd think I had never packed for a trip before. And what to do if it was colder than we planned or hotter. I had too many clothes in too little suitcases. I was a wreak and driving my husband crazy.
Meanwhile, when I would talk to Alison, she seemed distracted and vague and told me she couldn't think about what she was gonna wear until after Thanksgiving.
