Wow, it's been a long time since I've gone 4 days between blog posts. I promise that I haven't fallen into some pit of despair. I've just been crazy pre-occupied with the Disney trip. You see, for me, it's not just about this:
So besides the race and the large vacation... my husband is also a finalist for a very prestigious award at his company. The award trip and banquet are, guess what, in Orlando... the exact same week. What are the chances? So this means for 2 of the days, I'll be completely without the husband to help with the kiddos. This also means on Sunday, I have to be prepared (post-half-marathon) to go to a formal awards banquet. Which means I have been in mega-clothes shopping mode. I don't own anything "formal". Shopping was not as fun as I remembered... and it took 2 days of shopping to find something suitable. (OK, I found "the" dress during the first day but it had a poofy skirt, and I was afraid it would be a packing nightmare since we're trying to stick with carry-ons.)
Now comes packing list time... (thanks RR for supplying me a copy of yours, it gave me a starting point). Who knew vacations were so much work???????? The good news is that my red custom-made Snow White headband came in the mail! Thanks TMB!!!
Kenzie Kouture (my amazing friend, Chrystyna who puts up with my overwhelming complex last-minute requests involving rounds of indecisiveness):
Now if USPS would just deliver my tickets, and UPS would just deliver my other last minute things that were supposed to arrive over a week ago, I'd be golden! Oh, and I'd like for us all to get over the uber-crud that's been going around. My head is pounding, and I skipped my 11-miler this morning... cancelling on a planned run with a friend is not something I take lightly. Must find time to nap and then get in some sort of run... see what my body can handle while I'm slightly under-the-weather.
