The Mayor and Computer Boy have had this week off from school. This time last year we were in Disney World and enjoying every minute of it. Unfortunately, we hadn't planned to go this February. That aside, the younger ones have been battling a stomach virus. The same one the Mayor had last week, although hers was shorter lived. Monkey Girl has passed the corner and is on the other side of this thing. However, Computer Boy...well, let's just say you don't want to know.
Thinking about Disney World, it's time to plan some sort of summer vacation. I'm torn between driving down to Florida again or doing something closer to home. I love the idea of seeing friends but really (I almost can't believe I'm saying this) don't have the inclination to *do Disney* again. In the interest of full disclosure, we bought Annual Passes back in 2007 and wanted to use them to their fullest, so we visited the parks three times. So, one could say *I'm done* with Disney. But, the kids love it, my husband enjoys it too...the question remains, do I put my own desires aside and go anyway? Then, of course, there's the money...park tickets are expensive. Not to mention the fact that meals are expensive there too. I know Disney has a dining plan, but that just doesn't work for us--the kids and I really don't eat enough to *make it work* for us.
Like many parents, Mr. Hard-Worker and I look forward to family time. However, whatever we decide to do it will be a time of togetherness and re-connecting.
Now, I have one question for Mother Nature. Are you done yet? Because, while our vacation plans aren't set, I'm ready for the warmer weather to start.
