Tired, Oh So Tired!

I am at work with 23 minutes to go…yes,I am counting. This weekend was a great one – great family time, celebrating the holidays. I am so tired!! We went to Orlando to the Mickey’s Merry Christmas Party. It truly was a blast! I loved everything from the warm feeling surrounding me, the “snow” that fell on Main Street, the 5-10 minute wait in line for the rides, the fireworks, all the way to the parade. I felt like a little girl again watching the Disney characters dance and sing in front of me. My most favorite part was the toy soldiers…just watching them march in synchronization, the sound of their “boots” on the pavement, the innocence and childhood love they represent.

Saturday we went to the Ice exhibit at the Gaylord Palms convention center and I feel that was a total mistake…with a capital “M”. First off, we waited on line for over an hour with two very anxious little boys that just got out of the car from a 2 1/2 hour ride from Lake Worth to Orlando. After waiting forever, we finally were invited into the exhibit, and were handed previously-worn parkas that totally grossed me out at first, but then became my savior a few minutes after entering the world of ice. I thought the idea for the exhibit was cool (literally) but the boys totally hated it. My oldest boy was curled up in the stroller trying to keep warm, not even flinching that there was a HUGE carousel of ice in front of him. The little one whined the whole time, was totally freezing, but refused to wear the hood to the parka. Go figure…

So back to the fact that I am totally exhausted and have only 14 minutes left until I can clock out and go home to piles of laundry, mounds of boxes to wrap for the holidays and hopefully chinese food. We drove home this morning, got home about 12:45 and I changed to get into work as soon as I could. Wait until Thursday night when I get a puppy and see if I am tired then….hahahha
