This post is very late and is going to be incredibly brief. We have been on the most amazing vacation: a cruise on the Disney Dream, which was a surprise for little man’s birthday! I can’t wait to share all about it!
In the meantime, I was so busy with packing and didn’t have any internet over the weekend, so there was a bit of break from blogging. I am ready to write again, and I hope you are along for the ride.
Sunday – rest
Mr PugRunner went to his friend’s house for the day while little man and I stayed home and worked on Fish Extender gifts and last minute shopping for the trip. It was a long day, but we had fun. And he even helped me plant some of the flowers in the front yard. I was very appreciative of the helping hands, knowing how awful I am at gardening.
Monday – 4 miles
For May 4th, Star Wars Day, I figured that four miles would be appropriate.
Little man had a field trip to Home Depot for a presentation on growing flowers and vegetables (timely, no?), so Mr PugRunner chaperoned the trip while I packed and organized. It looked like they had a wonderful time.
That evening, I had a photo shoot for a friend’s family member – the rainy weather had caused us to postpone several times but it was worth it in the end.
Tuesday – rest
It was my last day of work for the week. The best part? My new shoes had come in! Everyone loves New Shoe Day! Sadly I wasn’t going to be able to take them out
We had an early Cinco de Mayo dinner before little man’s karate class, trying out a new-to-us Mexican joint. Fortunately, it was quite yummy, and you couldn’t go wrong with complimentary Coronas.
Wednesday – rest
I swung by my parents’ house to finalize our plans for the trip, and to pick up the Fish Extender that she so generously made for me. She is far more crafty and talented with the sewing machine than me, and I was so happy with the end result.
For next time, I will cut out some felt Mickey ears for the pockets, but for our purposes, this was perfect. Thanks, Mom!
Thursday – 3.1 miles
It was finally time to test out my new Wave Inspires! Whoo hoo!
It was definitely time for a new pair. My right arch still isn’t feeling quite back to normal. It will be good, and I’m going to be adding another pair to the rotation in the next month, just to make sure that my feet are getting proper support.
After school, we picked up little man – it was time for our vacation!
We had booked rooms in Cocoa Beach for the night. That way we wouldn’t be rushed getting to Port Canaveral in the morning. The hotel had a package for overnight parking and shuttle to and from the terminal, and we figured that would be the least stressful way of getting to the ship.
We had a family dinner with Nana and Papa Bear and then my mom and I took a lovely walk back to the hotel on the beach.
We turned in early so we could get some rest.
Friday – rest
After breakfast at a Cocoa Beach diner, we grabbed our bags and waited for the shuttle. I was stressing out about our late Port Arrival Time (because I stress about all these things) and our early shuttle, but I figured we would just deal with it.
We got to the port and were checked in by about 10:45. By 11:30, we were on board (thanks to some Pixie Dust from one of the crew members who found out it was my birthday).
And then it was time to set sail on the Disney Dream
Saturday – rest
At least in the running sense.
However, it was my birthday! And it was the most magical day!
I will be back with lots of posts about the cruise and all it had to offer, and the 5K on Castaway Cay. It was such a fun time and we can’t wait to go back.
Don’t forget that today is the last day to enter to win a completely customized Journal Menu training journal!
Do you like cruising? Ever cruised DCL?
When was the last time you had a New Shoe Day?
