Okay, it’s been a week, so I can’t possibly do my normal format, or it would be pretty impossible to read!
It’s been a busy week. My eldest is having a good time at her pre-college program, but she’s a bit homesick. She doesn’t admit it directly, but wants to text, talk, and Skype often, and she seems to really miss us. I know she misses my food.
I spent several days working late in preparation for vacation! Except Thursday. On Thursday it was a girls night celebration for LC’s new job!
Sunday we took M to camp. He was SO excited, though when we said goodbyes, I wasn’t the only one a little teary.
From there, D, R and I headed for the long drive to Orlando. We stopped for the night at a really nasty hotel in Lumberton, NC. It’s not that we weren’t on the lookout for somewhere fairly decent…and even though it was rated as 3 stars, it should have been zero!!! I realize I have become a hotel snob over the years.
Even though our mini-van has 3 movie screens, R opted to listen to The Hunger Games with us instead. We’re all really loving it.
We checked into our villa yesterday….to find another family staying in it! Not sure what the mix up was, but we got assigned a new one, got some room service credits for the troubles, and settled in. We hit up Downtown Disney for some dinner and walking around, and headed back to sleep around midnight (I know…out late, but after being cooped up in a car for so long, we were all a bit stir crazy!).
Breakfast was a vega berry smoothie! So very tasty. Lunch was actually a Vega chocolate bar at Universal Studios (didn’t want to risk not having anything viable to eat), and dinner was a vegan pasta primavera and soup.
We spent today at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. It was an absolute blast. Harry Potter World was truly magical, though much more crowded than the other areas of the park.
In an effort to not bore the crap out of you and/or write a crazy long post…everything has been great this past week, we’re intensely enjoying being on vacation, but I’m also ready to see my older two kids….
