How’s your summer been so far? I’ve been busy…
…trying to stay dry as Tropical Storm Debby swirled over the Gulf of Mexico and dumped inches of rain on the Florida peninsula, including our family vacation destination of Orlando.
My children were good sports. In spite of the incessant rain, they enjoyed the roller coasters, shopping, and time with their grandparents and aunt and uncle. The parks weren’t crowded or unbearably hot those first four days–generally a given in the Sunshine State the last week of June.
I was also busy…
…enjoying nature’s beauty.
At least, whenever I wasn’t busy….
…begging someone, anyone, to take my photo to prove I was also along on this vacation. (If you’re the family photog, you understand.)
I got my exercise, although I never stepped foot inside a gym, lifted a free weight, or jogged anywhere. I merely…
…chased after my family on one adventure after another.
Thankfully, they were game to eat lunch at Margaritaville, my little Key West fix to tide me over until couple’s getaway later this summer.
Back to cleaning the house, making meals, and running errands. As a writer, I’ve also committed to ROW80. If you’re interested, my goals are listed below.
Our near disaster of a vacation got me thinking. Despite your best-laid plans, have you ever been on a trip where everything seemed to go wrong?
