Just some random thoughts and whatnot.....I feel like this day should be over already but it is only lunch time. *Sigh*
I am back at work and suffering a bit from the post-vacation blues. Thankfully this is a short week, broken up by the 4th of July holiday. I can't imagine how much worse this would be if I was staring down a full 5-day work week!!
Thankfully, we had power (and most importantly AIR CONDITIONING!!) when we got back to the apartment on Saturday afternoon. We were lucky enough that our only inconvenience was not having cable/internet and intermittent cell phone problems. Nothing to complain about in the grand scheme of things for sure.
Getting away from work and out of DC for a week was freaking fabulous, even if we did have to contend with tropical storm Debby for the first half of the week.
I was nervous for the trip since I didn't think MVP was going to be really into the time spent at Disney. Now, I am not a Disney freakazoid fan, but I do love me some Walt Disney World. I feel like you can have so much fun there, whether you are 8 or 80. To my surprise, MVP kept telling me over and over how much fun he was having. I may have created a bit of a monster though, as he keeps singing songs from Finding Nemo at the drop of a hat. I can be a bit of a grump in the morning, so him telling me in song to "Just keep swimming...." before I have had a cup of coffee may get him a swift kick in the shins pretty soon.
If any of my friends need a Mommy's helper on an upcoming trip to Disney, let me know! Not only do kids love me, but I am an ACE at navigating those parks and know all the secrets, tips and tricks.
Right now, I am in serious Dole Whip withdrawal. Have you ever had one? Completely a-mazing. I practically salivate at the thought of them. I may spend some time today researching what I need to do/buy to make it at home.
Slowly trying to get back in to the swing of things at work. Not gonna lie, things feel a wee bit different now with no end-goal of a vacation to look forward to. Trying to bribe myself to get work done with promises of end of the week manicures and quiet time at night to enjoy a glass of wine and reading a book. I'm currently enjoying Andy Cohen's "Most Talkative" and pondering what my next read should be -- any suggestions?
