A very magic kingdom, indeed

I have left the Magic Kingdom behind (and 70-80 degree temps, sadly) and I'm home now. I learned SO MUCH!

1. If you are a man, rethink where you park yourself and your child to watch the Disney parade. HINT: In front of a woman's bathroom is not a good idea. You poor man, you barely got time to settle before you had to move, and move quickly. But bless your heart, you did it with the best of graces. I'm proud of you, even if I have no idea who you are.

2. If you are a child and you were at Disneyworld this past week, reach right around there and give yourself a big pat on the back. I've never seen such a bunch of wonderful children in my life. No screaming. No begging. No arguing. Now the parents....

3. If you work for Disneyworld, hon, I love you. Everybody made the trip truly memorable. There wasn't a clinker in the group.

4. If you are me, sit up straight, not only because it's good posture, but because you deserve to! I went on the Tower of Terror. For however long it took (which my memory places anywhere between sixty seconds and an eternity), I totally gave up all control. I had to just let things happen with faith that things were going to be okay. Well, I screamed the whole time (some things just go better with a lot of noise, and the ToT is one of them) but I did it! And I loved it! I did not, however, do any roller coasters. I am sane. That's my reason. I am sane.

It's good to be home, though, with my cat on my lap and Laundry Mountain awaiting me. Even if I do live in a state that's freakishly cold at the moment, I do have the memory of warm sunshine....

(Read on the plane: WICKED LOVELY. Wow. Just wow.)

Hey, sweetie! I'm glad that you all had such a wonderful time. I'm a roller-coaster junkie, though--are you implying that I'm NOT sane??? Okay...maybe we shouldn't go there. ;)
