The Colts, Mickey Mouse, and Aerosmith

Current mood: Content with Life!

Come back to Texas
It’s just not the same since you went away
Before you lose your accent
and forget all about the Lone Star State
There’s a seat for you at the rodeo
and I've got every slow dance saved
~ “Ohio (Come Back to Texas)” by Bowling for Soup

Last week, I was on a fun-filled family holiday to Orlando, Florida. I rode my first roller coaster (Space Mountain) – loved it, then rode my first upside down roller coaster (Aerosmith’s Rock and Roller Coaster) and loved it even more!!! I met and was photographed with over a dozen Disney characters. Stitch even tried to run away with me at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. He was so adorable. I behaved like a 10 year old at each Disney Park. It was seriously the happiest place on Earth.

I enjoyed 7 days with my siblings and my parents. I also enjoyed 80 degree weather, the Atlantic Ocean, and a visit to the oldest city in the U.S. (St. Augustine). I got enough sleep and ate way too much. I lived life to the fullest for 7 days. It was a great start to 2009. Plus, it helped me focus on taking life one day at a time – which is my New Year’s Resolution. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Random Thoughts:

On the NFL front, Peyton and his Colts are done for the season. No Super Bowl trip this year! As of Feb 3, 2009, they’ll be undefeated for next season. No worries!

I saw a couple of good movies this past weekend. One will most likely be nominated for some award . . . the other will not. LOL

Downloaded some new iTunes AND ringtones. Woo hoo!

We took hundreds of pictures on our trip. I need to upload them to a public site so they can be viewed.

Tonight, I hope to get my hair cut and colored before my trip to Fort Worth, which is at the end of the week. I am so excited to see the twins and my friends. I hope that I can fit all the Christmas presents for everyone in my suitcase. I really should have mailed them – but time got away from me, as it generally does.

I am not a procrastinator – normally – but it seems I have developed the habit. Just another fault to work on in the New Year. I know this is a discombobulated posting. Sorry for that!

I guess I am still a bit rattled from my roller coaster experiences. Yay Me!!!!!!!

I was born in the year of the Dragon. Hee hee

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: You will love the present I bought you! See you in 4 days!
