A little Moused Out

Greetings from cozy, warm South Florida (at least I think it is South Florida...Orlando is definitely Central, and I think this is South...e.b.? Clarity?). Anyway...

Disneyworld was awesome! I can safely say that three full days was enough, as we were both definitely dragging a little bit yesterday afternoon, but we had three very full days of fun! It is a total treat to be able to share this with little sister #2, and she is really easy company.

It was a little snowy on Saturday morning in Chicago, but we didn't have any trouble taking off on time. I was worried about that, so it was a good start to the trip. By the time we got there, got to the hotel, got checked in and settled and ate lunch, it was sort of early afternoon, so we decided to go to downtown Disney for a bit.

I would have been fine sitting by the pool for a couple of hours, but the idea of telling Tinkerbelle to hold off for a day before she saw anything Disney related was not gonna fly:-). We went to the Luau for dinner, which was really neat and lots of fun...then we were home, in our pajamas and in bed by about 8:30! I'd say that she was asleep by 8:34...

Not surprisingly, we were up really early on Sunday, had breakfast and were at the Magic Kingdom when the doors opened:-). And we were pretty much still there when the doors closed...hee hee. I very much appreciate that she is a wuss like me and didn't want to spin so fast on the teacups as to make ourselves sick...

We were in bed early all three nights and up early every morning, which let us get a whole lot of stuff in. We did most of Monday at the Magic Kingdom too, although we left a little earlier so we could go to Mickey's Backyard Barbecue for dinner. She really wanted to go to Animal Kingdom, so we spent Tuesday there, which was really neat! I had never been there before, so it was all new to me, too...

We got up this morning, picked up the car, waved goodbye to Disneyworld and made our way to the beach. I am definitely ready to relax and do nothing for a while...not to mention the fact that I couldn't afford more time in Disney...lol. Our only real task for the afternoon is to go to the grocery store and get food for the weekend (and for the cousins of Smoking Hot Roommate who are coming down after we leave). Other than that, it's beach time!

Hope you all aren't missing me too much:-)

Jealousy is such an ugly color for me!

Ah, that sound all great! I am really jealous. A little Holiday in Florida would be great! *sigh*

AM, I am so glad you are having fun! I bet Tink has been on Cloud 9. I'm so glad she didn't spin you to death - those teacups are not your cup of tea! (Har, har.)She is so lucky to have you!

Have a great time with the rest of the gang. Enjoy the beach and the warm weather and the water and swim suits and getting TAN (err, color!)

Truth be told, I do miss you a bit! I've actually had to WORK!
