What time is it?

My body is still on Eastern time... I am having a hard time adjusting to being back on Pacific time. Last night I was asleep by 8:30! Hopefully I will make it a little longer tonight.

The trip home was quite long; our flight out of Orlando was delayed for 2 hours and we were afraid we were going to wind up spending the night in Dallas, as our plane touched down almost 20 minutes after our connecting flight was due to depart. Thankfully, that flight was delayed as well, so we were able to make it on board before it left. We didn't get home until around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. (Was that really just yesterday?)

I spent the day doing laundry, picking up the dog from the kennel, and getting groceries. I still have more laundry to attend to today. Then there is still the cleaning up from Christmas and putting away all the decorations; that may wait until the weekend.

The last few days at Disney World were good ones. For me, the best part was our fireworks cruise on Emily's and Noah's birthday. We met at the marina around 11pm and a driver took us around the lake on a pontoon boat stocked with sodas and chips. Then we stopped in the middle for the most awesome view of the New Year's fireworks (they did them on the 30th and the 31st) ... we had a radio feed of the music, so it was just as good as being in the park; actually, it beat being in the park hands down! No tall person in front of you, no craning your neck to see the fireworks, no trees blocking your view, and no fighting the crowd to get down Main Street and out of the park.

Time to get back to real life around here again....
