Like most of you, I like to relax after a long day of busy work or play… and yet I am getting quite frustrated that the nylon camping chair just “aint doing it.” So I try to get out of the house and stay as busy as possible. Being on the edge of your dream is like standing on the edge of a cliff, and you KNOW you are ready to jump, but you have to wait for just the right moment. Well, I am getting really ancy on the edge of that cliff right now. LOL I want to jump SO bad, but I sit here, and wait until next Friday.
Yesterday I got to spend the day with my Mom again. She bought me some beautiful clothes as an early birthday present, and I just ate up every second I got to spend with her. We ran around getting party stuff for Saturday, and then before she left we stopped at McDs for a chocolate shake and frappicino. (Here is a side useless note for you to know about me… I have never had a drop of coffee in my life- hence I had the shake! ) As we sat in her little yellow car, the rain beating down, I began to sob. I told my Mom everything and anything I could about how much I was going to miss her and I of course made her cry too. It had to be said, even though I will see her 2 more times before we leave. It was a moment that was made for us and I will hold onto it forever.
We have been busy with party planning, work, and school coming to a close… that we sometimes forget that get to go to Walt Disney World in a couple weeks! I know that sounds odd, but the move is in the fore front of our minds… then we see a WDW commercial and I think “Oh my gosh, we get to do that!!”
We are so excited to see the new Star Tours Ride, the Haunted Mansion queue, how far Fantasyland has gotten, the new Pooh queue, ride the new version of TTA, see Phineas and Ferb at Studios, and attend all the small events we never could do before because of timing. Carl was in the kitchen yesterday and was announcing to me in the living room who was going to be at the “Eat to the Beat” series during Food and Wine in the Fall. He listed… and he said BOYZ 2 MEN… and I screamed… then he paused and said RICHARD MARX- AH I have died and gone to heaven!!! Do you KNOW how much I love Richard Marx? That was my High School days wrapped up in a CD!!! I know every song- and I will be there bright and early to get in line!!!! Anyone who is in town, come sing with me, cause it is going to be EPIC!!!
It’s so weird to see the countdown chain so small, down at 8 days. It is odd to think that a week from today our vehicles will be packed to the gills and ready to head out the very next day. It is scary to think that we have to relearn all over again the city, the state, and the workings of everything. I cannot WAIT to step into our home and just let all my emotions go. We will be updating on FB all the way to Florida next weekend as we stop to take pics in each state. We head through Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and then…… wait for it…. FLORIDA!!!! So if you live in any of these states, think of us, pray for good weather, and send us a smile as we drive through! If you are heading out tomorrow for Memorial Day weekend, have a great one and thank you to all who serve and have served in the armed forces. I love this Country!!
