Will practice "retirement" in January
Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Going to central Florida for 2 weeks in January. DGD competing in Cheerleading in Orlando the first weekend in January. DH wants to go to The Magic Kingdom at Disneyworld. They say it's for "kids" of all ages (75, really?). Will do the touristy things like Weeki Wachee Mermaid show, Glass Bottom Boats that are in the general area.
Then will head for the FL east coast and wander for another week. Have to research interesting things to do in that area. St. Augustine has a lot historical sightseeing. ANY SUGGESTIONS OF INTERESTING THINGS FROM TITUSVILLE NORTH WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
After being "retired" for 8 years and taking care of grandkids and hauling them to after school activities, the January - March time is a good time to try and get away and experience "retirement". The first part of the year is free of activities for them. The 16 yr old is home from school in time for when the 7 yr old gets home. The 13 yr old can help him with his homework. SIL works from home now and travels occasionally. I may be working my way out of a childcare job if they can get along without me.
I'll have to start walking more so I won't be wiped out by all the walking required at WDW. With all the great food in the Orlando area, we'll have to wise in our choice of dining places while being gone for 3 week.
