I haven’t thought of much new to blog about, so I’ve decided to use today's post as an excuse to relive our recent too-brief vacation. Like many winter-weary Minnesnowtans, my family took a warm-weather escape last week. We hadn't done a spring break trip with the boys before, but I snapped under this year's endless, record-breaking cold snap. We cashed in every last frequent flier mile in exchange for 4 tickets to Orlando.
From there, we spent a day at the two Universal Studios parks, going on various simulator rides and roller coasters—motion sickness being my price to pay for spending the following two days the way I wanted—on the beach.
Just for grins, here was the beach view from our hotel last week in Florida, compared to the beach view from our house today. Sigh. It was nice while it lasted.
Now, we’re home in Minnesota, the boys are back in school, and I’m back at work on revisions for my next book. For the next month or so, the only place I’m going is on a diet! Yes, in case you were wondering, you cannot sit all winter and eat whatever you want on vacation and not gain weight. I did the experiment for you; you can take it from me.
Hope warm weather reaches your neighborhood before it reaches ours. Happy Spring!
Did you take a winter getaway this year?
