Vacation Hangover

   I'm back. . . but I think I left my brain in Disney.  I'm feeling totally incoherent right about now.  I think it maybe because I have too much to say.  I usually just write about what is on my mind at the moment and then immediately post it.  Since I have 27464 things to say, I'm not sure where to start.  Disney was amazing, and crazy, and like being in a completely different reality.  My head is in quite the post-Dis fog this morning.

 I will leave you with a bulleted list of random thoughts to clear my head :) (and some pics at the end)
  • I ran a few times in Disney, but not more than 3-ish miles at a time.  One day I did a double.  I actually made a point on 2 runs to run at the hottest part of the day (around 90°) because I've been craving sweat-fest runs lately; I loved every second of it :D
  • Nolan was a trooper and walked everywhere :)  Friends had suggested bringing a stroller bc of the mass amount of walking and we did bring an old umbrella stroller, but we didn't need it.  We were very thankful to Nolster for that since getting through the crowds with a stroller would have been miserable (it was tough enough to begin with)
  • I observed a wholelotta mass food consumption but was able to avoid that myself.  I came back at the same weight I left and it is a darn good thing because I start work at the beach in a month!! (My summers are kind of like an alternative reality themselves, it takes some time readjusting to the real world when it is over)
  • This summer is going to rock even more since I my best friend is moving to LI in 2 weeks!  She just got hired at the restaurant located at my beach on Monday and I got to see her yesterday when I got home.  She went back upstate (about 4-5 hours away from me) last night to get everything ready for moving down here. And she will be living with us till she finds a place :D
  • OMG my half-mary is Sunday and I really have no idea how it is going to go down.  I'm not worrying about time, just gonna go out there a do my thang and have fun.  Ohh also no knee pain on any runs recently :) 
   Okay that was some random ish and just writing this post made my head hurt.  I leave you with a few trip pictures (we did take lots of pictures, but mostly just of Nol.  I can actually be a master camera evader at times.  Nolan looks a lot better than me in front of a camera anyway.)

Classic waking up still exhausted pic
(we stayed out till 12:30 on some nights because the lines were so much shorter)

One of the few pics I'm in

My little drummer boys

The future prince charming
(He actually didn't know Snow White left a big red kiss on his cheek, we tricked him into looking out the window so we could snap this pic.  Otherwise he would have tried to wipe it off right away :)

Causing Mischief


Hopefully I will be back to a better state of mind tomorrow and a better post.  I just re-read and edited this one and it was not pretty.

One of the smartest parenting moves I ever made was convincing my three daughters that Disneyworld was a myth, like Never Never Land, Atlantis and Las Vegas. Saved enough over the years to actually send them to college!

Julia said...

Rose @ Eat, Drink, and Be Meiri said...

Nelly said...

looks like it was a great time! Love the pic in front of the SF backdrop! I wouldn't worry about your half marathon, just go out there and have a good time, good luck!

Kurt @ Becoming An Ironman said...

It looks like Nolan had a BLAST! I'm sure you did as well.

Don't sweat the half mary. You're plenty ready. Just let your body readjust to the non-Disney temperatures and you'll kick a$$ as usual.

Michael said...

Glad you guys had a great trip. Adorable pics of the kiddo! I bet he had a total blast! Good luck at the half Sunday, I have one too!

Elle said...

Ah yes, 'Dismanation'... remember it well.

Neon Blonde Runner said...

Welcome back, glad you had a good escape :)

RoseRunner said...

ah, I'm a Disney junkie! That facade of San Francisco makes the city look so dreamy...kinda makes me like it. (But I actually hate it...I went to law school in the scummiest part of the city)

Nolan is a doll!
