It's good to be home! Our trip to Florida was wonderful - we did a lot of fun things and had a true family vacation. We spent a day at Disney World and a day at Epcot (I can never ever get my fill of the Magic Kingdom!), a day at Tarpon Springs (a delightful Greek community that served awesome gyro's), a day at the beach (there is nothing more beautiful than the beach), and a day driving around trying to find places I remembered from when I lived in Florida as a child. We enjoyed visiting my husbands sister and family and getting to know their kids better. It was fun being away from home and phones and responsibilities. And it all went by very, very quickly.
I did learn a couple of things about Florida.
NUMBER ONE - I do NOT have Florida hair!! My hair is thin and requires lots and lots of product and styling to look anything near good! The humidity in Florida was not my friend. I finally had to give up and tell myself that no one in that state was going to see me again so it didn't matter. Arghhh... I hate having 7 bad hair days in a row!!
NUMBER TWO - It just doesn't seem right to live somewhere where alligators and snakes are lurking on the sides of the freeways. I'm just saying.
NUMBER THREE - Doesn't have anything to do with Florida but here is a free piece of advice. When you take an Ipod on the plane to help you deal with your fear of flying, do not, I repeat DO NOT download the first season of Lost to watch. I had no idea it was about a PLANE CRASH! How's that for the epitome of stupid? I ended up resorting to taking medication on the way there. I hate doing that - I want my faith to be strong enough to carry me through. However, on our trip back we had to take separate flights and I had to fly alone with my daughter. I refused to take medication - I had to take care of her. So I suffered through it and I did okay I guess.
Anyway, I am back and am looking forward to catching up with everyone's blogs. I missed blogging and my sweet doggy Josey - otherwise I would have been tempted to stay much, much longer!
