An End

I'm writing this blog ahead of time because my hotel only has dial-up in the rooms and the common areas with high speed are far, far away (as in acres away in different buildings) and I have no idea how often I'll get there.

By now I'm probably exhausted. We've done Magic Kingdom, Sea World, visited my Grandma, Animal Kingdom, MGM and Epcot. Jeez that looks like a lot. I hope we've scheduled ourselves enough down time to avert tantrums, in-park meltdowns and frazzled parent syndrome. We'll see. I did however do 2 rather intelligent things, if I do say so myself.

First, I scheduled today as free. We have absolutely no concrete plans. We have tickets to Wide World of Sports, Disney Quest and the water parks (although I figure it's probably too cold to use them). We also have a second day ticket back to Sea World. But if we decide all we want to do today is sit in our room and watch TV - well then that's what we'll do. This is supposed to be a vacation after all.

Second, we scheduled ourselves Saturday and Sunday at home to recover from our vacation before we all have to return back to real life.

My vacation is coming to an end but so many things are starting up. I put off all my New Year's resolutions until after this trip so I have a list of things facing me when I return. But unlike my normal to do list these are all things I'm looking forward to. I'm starting on my diet and exercise program (yes I'm looking forward to this. I always feel so much better when I can fit it into my schedule). I'm chomping at the bit to start a new writing project. I've got people screaming in my head for attention - now I just have to decide which order to listen to them.

I know I'm probably a little sad, knowing that this great experience is almost over for me and my girls. But I have so much to look forward to when I get home.

Instigator, we've missed you! Sounds like you and yours are having a wonderful time, and kudos to you for building in the weekend to recover. I always try to do that as well. The mini-vacation to get over your vacation. :-)

Sounds positively exhausting and totally fun! ;) Glad you've had a great time and that's the best feeling when your excited about starting the next project. Travel safe.

I'll be glad when all the Playfriends are home from their travels and back on the internet. Things have been way too quiet this week.

Sounds like a wonderful trip and I know the girls enjoyed the adventure. Smart move to schedule the recovery days before heading back to work and school.

Like PC, I'll be glad to have all the Playfriends home again. I miss all the chatter.
