After six months of shirking adult responsibilities on a weekly basis under the guise of blogging, everything came to a screeching halt with not a word of explanation online. A trifecta of events combined into a perfect storm leaving Disney Every Week drifting aimlessly like yet another piece of cyber space junk. To sum it all up, here's what happened:
1. I'd decided to stop at the half year mark, because although I was having fun and always finding new things to do, I decided I preferred to take longer family trips. If we could afford my weekly trips from Jacksonville, we could afford a family trip in a deluxe resort with meal plan. The big trip was a higher priority.
2. In Aug we decided to send a child to private school, and our tuition cost all my monthly Disney gas money. Goodbye big trip to a deluxe resort and weekly trips.
3. A week after school started in Aug I had emergency surgery. My appendix burst, but I didn't recognize it until I was sick from peritonitis and abscess, 4-7 days after the rupture according to my surgeon. I had 18 nights of hospitalization and am still recovering. I just started driving in November, and the thought of sitting at the computer desk to update the blog or do anything is exhausting, so I'm settling for this.
Since surgery I've been to Disney for my anniversary, Thanksgiving, and am at the AKL now celebrating my birthday with my cousin Laura and frequent cohort in crime, (often mistaken for my significant other) fellow at-home mom, Jean. I have much yet to blog and look forward to resuming after I'm more fully recovered. We also have another trip booked at Bonnet Creek in Dec over Christmas break, so I'm still going but at a slower pace.
Happy Holidays and healthy appendixes to all of you!
