Day 1 is over. Even though things did not go to plan so well, we had some fun. We hit Epcot and the World Showcase. It stayed 90 degrees with a heat index of 106. I had a very ruff time and I didn’t get to do the things I wanted to do. The plan was to hit the food vendors and “Eat around the World.” But seeing as my paycheck is messed up, funds are limited. We did manage to taste 2 types of beer, and the shops had great stuff to look at. I got a Guinness tree ornament and a BIG sack of loose leaf green tea in Japan. We came back to the RV for lunch and to cool off, everybody fell sound asleep so we didn’t make it back. I am disappointed, but I am sure the sleep was much needed and I probably didn’t need to go back out in the heat again today after getting zero sleep last night. Note to self, NEVER take sleeping pills again. It set off my restless leg so bad that I could not sit still long enough to go to the bathroom……. It made me so tired and groggy that I was miserable while pacing the floor and walking round the block with a flashlight. Pretty sure anyone who saw me thought I was very drunk. Rehydrating and resetting plans for tomorrow, the Animal Kingdom and the new Pandora. Truly hoping we get up early so we can come back to the RV during the hottest part of the day, and return after lunch and cooling off.
I was never so smart as to overload us with Gatorade, it was a god-send. We kept the bottles and refilled with water at water fountains which kept us going. I have never been so happy as to see the teal light from our RV LED strip on our return. After the long nap I took a shower, which I wish I had done before the nap, but either way. Now everyone is Wide Awake at 2 am. So we will just stay awake I guess and head out at 8am. Bt we will roll with the punches. Woot!
The cat is happy with us again. She is no longer plotting our doom for putting her thru the 8 hour trip. She is all snuggly and happy to see us. It is nice to come home and her be there waiting. It is also nice to sleep in my own bed and not have to worry about having forgotten something at home (I forgot the sunscreen in my car……..but I have LOTS of aloe) Breakfast is pretty easy plus we take snacks with us. Lunch and dinner look like they will be the same meal judging by the energy levels around here lol. It is kind of nice though, I did a lot of pre-cooking and mom sent chicken salad which makes meal prep super fast. We had biscuits and gravy for lunch/dinner. Weds will be tacos and Thurs a pot roast in the crockpot. I am thinking that the RV here has made some things way easier. It does take away from the “experience” in that there is no hotel with a bathtub and housekeeping, but I am OK with that considering the price tag difference and the not having to pack a bag, unload and load the car. Another thing, when we stopped on the way down here, the bathroom is a few feet away and not up the hill. Lunch and travel food is right there and the drinks in the fridge are still nice and cold. OH and there is a big pitcher of sweet tea the whole time lol. I am rambling now.
I am gonna try to get a short nap in now. Cheers!
