So my partner and I sat down a couple of weeks ago and said wouldn’t it be great to get away for the holidays, really sink into a real vacation somewhere as a family and do it at the busiest time of the year? A few internet searches and a heart stopping total later, we realized it was out of our price range and dropped the whole thing.
Here’s the thing, I now have this seed planted in my head that I CANNOT get out…Disney World.
So I get on the phone make some calls, check my bank balance, cash in every voucher, points, and frequent flier mile I have and Voila! It’s in reach. Cute right? That’s just it. As a glutton for punishment I decide it will be a complete surprise to both him and my 3 year old and (wait for it) I will have them unpack Disney sweaters on Christmas Day in a suitcase and say Surprise! We leave tomorrow at 6 am for 10 days.
This is the point where some people will say awww. And others will see the truth. This is a disaster in the making. I am trying to pack and organize Disney secretly. I’m shipping winter clothes and custom Disney T Shirts to the hotel. I am arranging all my daughters medication and specialty items with no one to double check. I am trying to make sure he has the right clothes for the weather and not take any jobs or make any plans between Christmas and New Years because he won’t be here.
I am thoroughly exhausted. I am frustrated and I can’t even say why. I am throwing fits when anyone around me even says anything plane related lest they give away the surprise I have kept for WEEKS! And I am slowly going insane.
Stay tuned as I will be blogging about the entire experience, how they react to the surprise, and of course all our experiences on the trip. Wish me luck, a pinch of sanity and a great vacation
