It’s been a long few days, but I’ve finally found a free moment. Let’s see how long it takes me to catch up. I’ll try to be brief.
Sunday night we saw Sir Paul McCartney in concert at the Amway Center in Orlando. I’ve been a Beatles fan for as long as I can remember, so this was an exceptionally big deal for me. From start to finish it was all I ever dreamed of and more. He played a lot of old stuff, a good deal of mid-range stuff, and a little bit of new stuff. I sang and clapped and screamed. I even cried a few times. I am so happy I had the opportunity to see that man do what he loves to do. If I could ever say just one thing to him, I’d thank him for sharing so much of himself with us.
So what else have we been up to? We have spent a LOT of time at WDW over the last 6 days. We even drove over from Tampa (about an hour and a half) just to see the Wishes fireworks show and Main Street Electrical Parade and the Magic Kingdom. It was after 2am when we got back to our friends house, and we were exhausted, but it was well worth the drive over. MSEP has always been my favorite parade.
We spent 3 awesome nights staying with a really amazing family that I”m glad to call part of my selected family. They gave us free sanctuary, and I am so grateful for such kind people. They fed us some really good food, and even let us cook dinner one night to repay their kindness. Their son even got me hooked on my first Anime. It’s called Zero No Tsukaima. The best way I can explain it is it’s a lot like the Japanese spin on a French Hogwarts, but with more innuendo. I look forward to watching more episodes.
We looked at some apartments today and have a few more to check out tomorrow. I think we’re narrowing it down, which is good because I really want to get it narrowed down to a short list of 3 places for us to finalize with through e-mail and snail mail. I know that we’re not going to be able to make another trip down between now and the tentative move date of Aug 1st.
We checked into our hotel tonight for Geo-Woodstock. We met a guy from Ohio and another guy from Switzerland while hitting the vending machines. It’s so weird to just look at someone and know that they accept you and your hobby. Also, there’s something like 4 24hr Starbucks in the immediate area. This is going to be a VERY nice thing tomorrow night. After check-in to Woodstock, we’re headed back over to the MK for their 24hr Disney day. I know we’re going to be exhausted, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.
I think that about covers it. Bed time. Say your prayers and count your blessings. I never realized how much I have. I am so thankful!
