Blast off in 4, 3, 2, 1...
Okay, I just got back from Disneyland a few weeks ago. One of my favorite rides is California Screamin’ , the roller coaster. When we go, we ride this, a lot
. Several years ago, after we returned, I watched my kiddos playing in the back yard. My youngest would load up his big sister and brother in the wagon and then recite, “Blast off in 4, 3, 2, 1” Whoosh, they were gone on a bumpy, twisty ride around the yard. When they returned to the patio, he would say, “Welcome back, screamers!”
I feel sort of like that now, but blast off is in four days. Four days and counting. I am so excited, I am nervous, but not as nervous as excited and hopeful. I have been going nonstop for almost two weeks now getting things ready for the trip and getting things ready for my kiddos for the time I am gone.
One great thing about Disneyland is that when that fatigue would set in, I would just get into a plummeting elevator, a booming ejection seat or twisting, looping roller coaster car and then I was awake again! We will see if this procedure can knock the fatigue out of me like a roller coaster ride does. I won’t get into my dream list of “what I would like back”, I will be happy, super happy
, with the same thing as most of you, just stop the progression.
Here is a link to my intro thread if you are interested:
Oh yeah, when I come back, you can just say “Welcome back” and leave off the “Screamers”. I am hoping not to scream, yeah, definately no screaming.
(Okay, now I am off to the tracking thread!)
