In the immortal words of Marvin the Paranoid Android: Oh GOD I’m so depressed.
In other words, I flew home from Walt Disney World on Sunday, and now I’m falling into the tired, inevitable old cliche: constantly thinking things like “Yesterday at this time, I was eating breakfast with Tigger.” “Yesterday at this time I was walking past Spaceship Earth.”
|Three days ago, I was setting the Magic Kingdom on fire.|
And then I forgot to close out my spreadsheet on my computer, so when I got to work this morning and turned on my monitor it was THERE, staring at me. Mocking me. Whispering: I now represent your past.
I dunno. Naturally I’m always bummed when a WDW trip is over, but for some reason I’m particularly down this time around. Maybe because I spent over six months planning it? Almost harder than not being there anymore is not having it to look forward to anymore.
Anyway. What a whiny little baby I am. I took more photos than ever before and I have great Twitter conversations to re-read and I’ll be reliving it through a trip report on this blog over the next week or two and Lord knows I’ll be back
Then too: Moon and I are going to Disneyland for the Tinker Bell Half in a little over a month! So I’ve got nothing to be sad about. At all.*
* Not that this stops me. I has a sad. I also has an Annual Pass now. Who wants to go to WDW with me?!
I actually did run, last week, believe or not, just a lot less than usual – 23 miles over two runs instead of the usual 35-give-or-take-a-couple-miles over three. I packed running stuff for WDW but never really had time for it (shocker). Mostly I listened to WDW music in preparation – FotLK and IllumiNations and Wishes and now I kinda want to cry so you can fill in the rest yourself.
Um… roundup. Super short one this week; didn’t do much blog reading while at WDW. Back in the saddle for next week, promise. If you wrote something great last week that I might have missed, be sure to let me know!
