And We’re Back!

Well, mostly. We returned from our Disney vacation on Sunday. It was a wonderful time. I got to spend a week with my dearest friend and her family while enjoying all of the magic that Disney World and the Animal Kingdom Lodge had to offer. I don’t know what I was expecting when we left, but it was definitely an adventure. Trista had everything planned out so well. If you ever have a question about which rides or shows to use for Fast Passes, she’s your woman. Space Mountain was one of those rides. Emma may have been nervous before going on a roller coaster, but she’d never let me see her sweat. Allison was another story. I had to rub her back and reassure her the entire time we waited. Had we had to stand in line the 90 or so minutes non-Fast Pass riders had to wait for Space Mountain, she would have either had a heart attack or I would have had to weave through hundreds of people leave the line. With the Fast Pass, she didn’t have enough time to change her mind. I thank Trista’s epic Disney skills for making this picture a possibility.

As with all great adventures, you eventually have to head back home. We got back on Saturday. Sunday was a day of laundry and helping the girls get their make up work done. No matter that I got in over 100,000 steps and 50 miles of walking in while I was at Disney World, my measly 5,000 steps today has me beat and my head’s still in vacation land. Hopefully later this week I’ll have an honest to God Literate Housewife post to publish. I’ve read some great books recently that I’d love to discuss. I just need to find the energy. It’ll return. There’s nothing like a break from it all to refresh you – eventually. :)

    Welcome back! I am SO SAD I didn’t get to meet up with you. It was totally the most awful week of the year for me, so much that when my husband returned on Saturday night, I told him that I wished to be left alone on Sunday. I’m not going to church, I’m not cooking, I’m not doing anything but hiding. Anyway, I am glad you had a good time. Disney has such a great way of making reality go away. Even for us locals, a day trip down there is the best therapy you can get.

          There is nothing quite like a Disney vacation but returning back to reality sucks! There is no way to sugar coat it, so I won’t. BUT, it is nice to sleep in your own bed though isn’t it?
