Back to the real world

I'm back. Well, mostly. I actually arrived in Arkansas Thursday morning, after an unexpected overnight stay in northern Kentucky. I slept most of that day. Friday, I sat around amid luggage and dirty laundry, embroidering and denying that my vacation was ending. Today, I arose to bright sunshine and a bit more energy. I'm still only halfway through my laundry, and my house is pretty horrifying, but I'm coming back to the real world bit by bit.

I had the time of my life at Disney World with Polly and Claire. How nice to discover that we all travel so well together--one more thing to add to my list of joys. Claire was so adorable, so thrillable. It was a delight to experience Disney World with her.

There is so much to tell--more than anyone but the three of us would enjoy hearing about. I won't try to capture all the details here (though I may not be able to resist dropping a story from time to time). But just for the record, here is a tiny percentage of the photos we captured. I almost escaped appearing in any of them.

(1) Claire and Polly arriving in Orlando. (2) Entering Epcot. (3) With Toy Story characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear. (4) Polly with a dairy cow. (5) Polly and Minnie in the garden of Minnie's home. (6) Claire and Polly with Mr. P at Downtown Disney. (7) Claire singing karaoke with some British kids at our hotel. (8) The three of us in our "car" at the Sci-Fi cafe.



The trip is over, but we get to keep the week forever.

Denise -
Sounds like you had such a wonderful time! Can't wait to hear stories at our next ya-ya day ... Polly and Claire are as adorable as the Disney characters. :)
I have missed you and your blog entries!

Hugs,
Kimberly

Welcome Back!!! I'm so glad you had such a good time and it was a safe trip, too. Love the pictures and it does bring back memories for me, too (from more years ago than one wishes to remember!). Welcome back to the real world...um, isn't Disney World the real world and the rest of this place just figments of our imagination?


Denise, I've got my 'nurses' posted on my blog for a few more days--still sewing little squares...

It's good to have you back in Arkansas. I've missed seeing you chime in in the forums and updating your blog.

I'm glad you had such a great time. You deserve it, girl! Although, like Idyllhands, I missed your blog. I found myself checking it just in case...

And I have to take issue with there being no photo of you in Mickey ears! I wanted blackmail material...
