I am a lucky, lucky girl: I got to spend a couple of days in Orlando, Florida this week! I was attending a social media conference for work (thank you, work!) but I got to squeeze in some fun stuff too. I flew in early afternoon Wednesday so I’d have half a day to explore Disney, so that was my day at Disney World. I enjoyed it, but I discovered that Disney World is one of those things that is better done with someone else. It was super crowded and even if I were a ride person, the shortest line I saw was 50 minutes, and there was nothing I wanted to ride that badly. But I got to see all the sights and bask in the Disney atmosphere for a few hours.
The second day was spent at the conference, and it was fantastic. I’m an introvert but I talked to strangers all day long, and didn’t even mind! Lunch was outside, where I managed to get a bit of a sunburn (not complaining at all), and then at five when we ended for the day, I needed more Disney, so I hopped on the bus to Disney Springs, the big shopping/dining/entertainment district. When I got back, I had a late dinner at the 50s themed diner, Beaches and Cream. So good!! Plus, I could watch the fireworks at the park from my balcony, so I made sure to see those both nights.
Friday was a half-day for the conference, and I got about 45 minutes to bask in the sun before I had to head out.
Then it was time to head home, where it’s cold and gray and rainy. I had some gorgeous views from my window seat, though.
I also got quite a bit of sock-knitting done too: one sock done and the second past the gusset. I’ve learned that if you’re an introvert who has to socialize, do something weird like dye your hair a weird color and/or knit during meetings, and then you have something to talk about! They were definitely good ice-breakers.
Now I’m back home, where the boys and the dogs are happy to see me, and I have chores to do, plus a dog with a broken nail who has to go to the vet. (Different dog. Jack this time, not Duncan.) But with any luck, I’ll get a bit of knitting time later in the day. Happy weekend, friends!
