I have nothing wise to say today. Nothing remotely interesting. I'm kinda in a down mood, a little emotional, a little sad, even a little anxious. That hasn't happened in a while, but I think lots of things are conspiring against me this week.
Tomorrow I leave for Florida. Now, before you think that is just what I need, consider this. I am going as a chaperone with the high school band, orchestra and choir. Need I say more? Actually tho, they are really good kids, really good. But four buses and a 24 hour trip down, and another back - could be a bit much!
Planning to take books - I just have to figure out which ones I want to jump into - my iPod with music and Rob Bell sermons, and my pillow. 24 hours on the bus could be good for me I guess - nothing to do but sit. Sleep. Read. Oh, wait, on the other hand, my brain could also engage in some things I really don't need to dwell on. But then, I've got a bunch of teens to drag me into reality, eh?
We are headed for WDW and Magic Music Days. 4 days in the park - any park cuz we have hopper passes. The band is marching in the parade in the Magic Kingdom and the orchestra and choir are doing concerts in the Magic Kingdom. Beyond that it's free time and fun and sun.
So, I'm seriously hoping this will be a good thing. Relaxing and rejuvenating, and not exhausting and draining. It could go either way. Just getting away from here though, I hope, will be a kick start towards healing.
So, I'm off.
I'll let you know how it went when I get back.
