A Few Days Off

As any mom (or dad) knows, you rarely get a day off. Of course, I love my kiddos and would rather be with them than without... but for the next four days, I am truly getting a vacation.
Hubby and I are off to the land of the mouse (Orlando), to participate (he will run, I will spectate) in the RunDisney Hollywood Tower of Terror 10 miler.  This is our second year to do this. This year we aren't going alone... not the kids, but some good friends we have known for a long time are meeting us in Orlando.  I am very excited to see them and hang out in one of my favorite places with them for a few days.
Preparing for this trip has been pretty easy, with the exception of my nerves. I have been very anxious all week, about nothing in particular, but still feeling it in my stomach and sleeping. And last night as we were packing, it occurred to me... I will truly be on vacation! Apparently the look of surprise and bewilderment on my face was rather amusing as hubby had to laugh (it was a supportive laugh - he's a good guy).
So, the Grandparents are on duty and the kids will be well cared for and kept busy.
Our day today started early with a 5 hour flight across the country.  We hit the Qdoba in the airport and got a couple yummy breakfast burritos. The line at Starbucks was nutty so I just grabbed a coffee drink from the refrigerated case at the airport store when we picked up our water.  And I plan to make at least my first drink order on the plane coffee - cause a girl needs more than four hours of sleep!
And in case I don't sleep on the plane, I came with a few Disney flix I haven't seen yet... shocking, I know. Wreck-It Ralph and Brave, along with a few episodes of White Collar season 1, a few episodes of Chuck and Northhanger Abbey... diverse, No?
