The girls and I are off track this month (that’s year-round talk for a third of our “summer vacation”; we’ll be off track again in April) but the whole family has been celebrating for a couple of weeks.
He’s almost halfway done with university but couldn’t afford to miss any classes and time from homework.
Quite honestly, I think he was relieved to not come with us to the Happiest Place in Earth. We (I) take advantage of military discounts, including a great rate at the Disneyland Hotel where we started staying after R’s accident so he didn’t have to trek too far if he needed a break from the parks. Anyone who stays at the Resort hotels can get into the parks AN HOUR BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE.
And as you may or may not have noticed, I can be a little…
I like to bring food from home– we bring pop tarts and fruit and drinks into the park.
I like to have a schedule.
I can’t help it.
But I can’t also help but notice that we were all quickly getting exhausted from early wake up calls and late nights so on the third day, we swam.
Fast forward a week and here I am, updating my blog that I have neglected while everyone sleeps. R has to wake up at 4 am and the boy still has school. I was about to retreat to my favorite couch in the loft because I don’t want to wake up to R’s alarm when what to my wandering eyes should appear?
Three sleeping children without a sofa for me!
I thought about waking them and sending them to their beds because I surely didn’t want to wake up when R did.
But then I realized that if that is my biggest problem, I am pretty lucky.
