Post-Vacation Depression – or how we survived our trip to Disney

I can truthfully report that there is no shortage of people, lizards or three dollar canned cokes at Disney.

I can also report that while October is a less crowded month to visit Mouse Land, that does not mean there will be NO crowds.

And, it is possible, according to our family doctor, to have five people travel to the same spot for vacation, stay in the same room, do the same activities and still come down with separate sicknesses that require antibiotics.

Yes indeed, our trip to Disney included us bringing home two cases of bronchitis, one case of strep (for yours truly), one double ear infection, and one upper respiratory infection.

I am glad to be home, though, and I am ready to get back into the swing of things.

I have some good news to report – Rich Fabric, the anthology, will be included in the Material Culture Library in the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, Texas. I am thrilled and proud!

  1. Wow, I am glad for you and I am glad you had a somewhat fun time at disneyland. I plan to travel there myself someday.

    • Disney is amazing and overwhelming. The special effects and animatronics are amazing. The organization and attention to detail are also amazing. If only I could figure out how to see all of it and do everything without dealing with all the people!!

    It could have been worse. Imagine if you’d been accidentally locked in and forced to listen to “It’s a small world” all night. Uurrkk! It doesn’t bear thinking about.

    • Funny you should mention “It’s a Small World” – the first time I went to Disney – two decades ago, I took a whole roll of film (old school, wind the film after each shot) in that ride. I told my kiddos that I may have some sort of strange flashback when I heard the song this time. Fortunately, I made it through with no incidents!

    We went to D-World in Sept with a similar good fun, but none of the crud. I still miss it on hard days or days that end in Y.
