ROW80 and Disney World

For my ROW80 check in…I haven’t written a word in eight days. I took my computer to Disney World with me, thinking I would have time to write. I never opened my laptop. My feet have never hurt so bad in my life. I think my friends were trying to kill me. We were at the park until 1:00 am on Monday and midnight on Wednesday. And 9 and 10 the other days. But you have to add the time it takes to catch the bus back to the hotel. I had a great time, but I’m glad to be home.

For those of you just wanting a ROW80 update, you don’t have to read further unless you want to. I want to talk about a couple of things and I don’t want to do two posts. But you’ll miss eye candy.

One thing I realized is how well behaved my friend’s eight year old son is. Most of the kids there are apparently ignored by their parents while they are at Disney and aren’t taught good manners. I don’t know how many times I was hit, kicked, and bumped into while standing in line. No “excuse me” or “I’m sorry” from any of them but one or two. I wanted to hit their parents.

On a more INTERESTING note. This is my favorite attraction at Disney World. His name is Luca.

Believe me when I tell you, these pictures do NOT do him justice. He was our waiter at the Italian restaurant, and he had the most amazing accent. And he was very sweet. But my husband wouldn’t have appreciated me bringing him home as a souvenir. As an author, the first thing I thought of was how I would love to have him on a book cover. But he would have thought I was weird if I asked him what time he got off from work so I could take some pictures. LOL. I wish he wasn’t smiling in both of these pics…it makes him look like a little boy, and that makes me seem…well…creepy. Hahahahahaha.

Updates

I’m having a great times at Disney. I have no internet access and I just don’t have time to do everything on my phone. So I apologize for not commenting on posts this week. I can barely catch up on comments on my Trick or Treat page. I’m blown away by the number of comments I’m getting! This was a great idea by Elizabeth Ann West.

I’m sure going to have a lot of catching up to do Monday!

I took off from writing Wednesday and Thursday due to coming in late at night. I’m still 260 words ahead of goal.

Now, if you will all excuse me, I’m getting ready to leave for Disney World! Squeeeee!

We’re driving for about an hour and a half, stopping for church on the way, then off we go to the hotel, which will take several more hours! Then, tomorrow, we’ll be in the park until about 1:00 AM (extend hours that day). Whew!

Yes, yes, this is a very eclectic mix of topics.

I got up this morning and walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes! Seriously, I did. If you knew how much I love my sleep, you would have surprised face right now. I hope I’ll be able to make myself do this every morning, and also do some other kind of exercise in the evenings. We’ll see.

Also, Susan Bischoff is running a contest on her website. Click HERE for details.

And, last, but in no possible way least, I’m going to Disney World on Sunday! I’m as excited as a little kid. I haven’t been there in years, and they’ve added so much stuff. There wasn’t an Animal Kingdom when I was there last. And I love rides, especially the roller coaster ones! The couple I’m going with (and their eight year old son) are afraid of roller coasters, so I’ll be riding a few of those by myself. My friend won’t ride anything scary, but her husband said he MIGHT ride a few of the scarier rides with me. I want to ride that cool coaster that has the Yeti that tries to get you! Okay, yes, I’m babbling. I TOLD you I was like a little kid.
