The planets are aligned

Alan was out of town from Tuesday through Thursday. His company's national sales meeting was in Las Vegas. He didn't really have time for any fun--or so he would have me believe. ;) Fortunately, he does not have to travel often for his job. I say that because I am such a weenie about him leaving. I worry about him flying and start thinking all kinds of gloom and doom thoughts. Then I worry about being left alone with THEM------->

While he was gone I didn't sleep well at all. For two nights I tossed and turned. Things just were not right in the universe. I had no one to spoon me. It was torture. I was on the verge of calling Dr. Murray to see if he had any spare Propofol. But first I tried turning his pillow sideways to pretend it was him behind me. When I told Alan about it before bed, he made some obscene suggestions of what else the pillow should do to me and then didn't feel right about it. I told the pillow I was a married woman and to stay away from my backside.

Last night my Spoon man was back in position. Sweet manna from heaven! A good night's sleep at last!!

My Sleeping Beauty

Just call me the Disney Nazi. On Magic Kingdom day, I had them all up at 5 a.m. and at the gates of the park by 7 a.m. We had all the most popular ride done by lunchtime. Yay me! So we decided to go back to the hotel for lunch and a nap before going back to the park for the evening. This little video of Shepard I took on the bus going back to the hotel--remember, it was only around noon. I am pretty sure I will cherish this movie forever, especially since Sage comes in at the end to help a brother out.

It's a world of laughter

For Spring Break we took the kids to Florida to visit some good friends and do the Disney thing. Alan and I have good memories of visiting the Magic Kingdom when we were kids and it was very exciting to be able to share that with the boys. Of course, in this day and age, some rides just don't translate, as I found out. One of the most famous rides there is the "It's a small world ride." You are on boat and sailing along as children (well fake puppet children) from all different countries sing:

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears,
It's a world of hope and a world of fears,
There's so much that we share,
that's it's time we're aware,
It's a small world after all.

What a beautiful message!!!! I thought. Check out Sage's opinion of the ride.

Ah, the innocence of youth. Isn't it great?!
