I'm Home!

We did it! We took 153 boys, girl and parents to Kennedy Space Center, Medieval Times, EPCOT and Universal Studios (both the movie side and Adventure Island, with all the massive rollercoaster). Compared to last year I think this year went great!




My luckiest break I will attribute to the good vibes sent by my blogger buddies! I was set to have two girls in my room. I wasn’t wild about the idea but that is just the way the rooms worked out. I helped everyone get settled in their rooms and then took a minute to get on line in the lobby. I sent a few emails and headed back to my room when the tour guide stopped me and told me that since we had one parent and child drop out at the last moment and that we couldn’t get our money back, I was welcomed to the last room.


Since it was close to the girls and I trusted them to behave with me just looking in on them I moved. I nearly dropped my teeth when I saw it! A huge suite with a living room complete with couch and chair, entertainment center, a wet bar (which I didn’t use) and a king size bed! Best of all I could get on line in that room! I mean truly, what could have been better? Well, of course having Nick there would have been better, but short of that it was great!


We did have to deal with a big storm while we were at EPCOT but it came late and it didn’t cause us too many problems. And it was cold Sunday!! And as we left to come home each time the bus stopped as we headed north the cold got worse! This is supposed to be the south! When we finally got back to the school it was 9 degrees!! Very, very cold for us! I was so happy to see Nick!!


Nick doesn’t usually want souvenirs from trips like this but I got him one anyway – or maybe it’s for me! I actually bought one last year but lost it before we got home somehow. Here it is -



This might have been a mistake. It is made of a hard foam/rubber type material. The little practice slap I gave myself makes me wonder at my wisdom. Buy it was funny when I bought it. I was with the teacher who is the most suspicious of the new relationship Nick and I have developed since I came out to him. She knew me pre-spanking and often comments on my change in attitude it the things I say now. She wanted to know “Who you getting a toy sword for?” With no kids or grandkids the right age she was wondering. I just shrugged and she asked again “Come on, who’s it for?” I couldn’t help but have a silly grin on my face as I imagined it being used. I just laughed and kept on grinning. She grinned back and said “Forget it I probably don’t want to know, do I?” No she probably doesn’t!

I really want to thank everyone for thinking of me on this trip. You don’t know how nice it was to come in half dead and find so many emails waiting for me. It definitely made me feel better! And a special thank you to my twin for the phone texts that kept me laughing and connected during the day! You guys are the greatest!

Wow, a suite for someone who's really sweet...how awesome is that?!?

It's good to have you home safe and sound.

So, are you going to be Maid Marion to Nick's Robin Hood. Hmmm, I guess that would be arrows. I know, you can be Gwenevere to his mighty Lancealot!

Dang, I just cracked myself up. I can see you in a flowing dressing gown, squealing and giggling as you run around the royal chamber with your sword swinging knight hot on your heels! Come on, fess up, that's exactly how you pictured it as you held that sword in your hands at Disney World, isn't it?

Did you blush and jump a mile when your co-worker interrupted your fantasy?

It sounds like your curious teacher friend may need a spanking for being such a busy body! :-)

PK, happy that you had such a good time, and a suite to yourself, great.
Glad that you are back save and sound, I'll bet Nick is as well!!!
*SMILES*
Reckon the inquisitive teacher is a closet spanko, perhaps you could gently drew her out.
The picture of you being chased by your Sir Lancelot, waving his might sword, well I can understand why C C cracked up! As long as he wasn't wearing his armour.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

Great to have you back. I think C.C. said it all about your sword. I can't wait to hear about that fantasy come true hehehe.

*hugs and grins*

153 children to Disney! You should be canonized!

The toy looks interesting. We were in Disney a few months ago and I kept looking at those Mickey back scratchers but I never had the nerve to buy one! That hard plastic was terrifying!

Please let us know how you enjoy your new toy and welcome home!

That has happened to me at hotels few times, and upgrade for no reason! Cool!

It has really been cold here also wind chills around 12.

Glad the trip was good and you made it back safe and sound. I don't know how you do that trip. All those kids! Yikes!

Let us know if that souviners turns out to be a mistake or not!

Terpsichore,
That room was really great and I am very happy to be back!

C.C,
I do hope Nick reads your comment. I think you summed it up well! I can usually think on my feet but she caught me by surprise. It was kinda funny!

Lori,
We haven't got to try it our yet but more I look at it it might have been a mistake.

Reesa,
Thanks! We have already started planning for next year.

Jess,
That might not be such a bad idea. She has long wondered in the change in me.

Twin,
Your demise my butt! Well I mean your butt, oh you know what I mean.

Paul!
I was so very happy to see Nick and he seemed pretty happy too.
I do not thing this teacher is a spanko, I've met her husband and it just not there!

I will let you know when Sir Lancelot catches me.

Thanks David,
I will tell you all about it!

Mthc,
I hope I will enjoy it!

Elizabeth,
We have done this trip many time now so it doesn't seen as crazy to us as most. I agree, hard plastic can be a little intimidating!

Theresa,
We need to send this cold back to our friends in the north. This is not for us!

SO glad that you are back... and of course, having a great time was awesome, too, but mostly glad you're home. So when do we get to hear about the sword test-trials, lol?

Big hugs,
Tiggs
