Our Journey to E91: July 5

As I type this on my iPhone, I'm standing in line for "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" at Disney World. That's right--Winnie the Pooh. And before you judge me, you should know that I just got out of the "Philharmagic 3D Symphony." Oh, the things we do for our kids (and for ourselves, if we're honest)!

This may sound odd, but one of the hardest things for me to do is relax. I love vacations, but I have to work hard at NOT working! I mean, here I am standing in line for a ride at Disney World and what am I doing? I'm emailing an update for church!

So, I'll make it short, because I need to work harder at not working! Maybe the reason I'm still working is because Disney makes me feel like I'm working. For all of you Disney lovers, don't take offense, but Disney for me is not as much of a magical place as it is a busy place--people everywhere, long lines, and a lot of babies. Why do people bring their babies to Disney World, by the way? But the more I look around, the babies here have got it made. They're doing a lot of sleeping and riding around while their parents push them in shaded strollers.

But in case you think by my musings that I'm not having a good time, let me just make it clear. I could be on vacation anywhere with Laura and the kids, and I'll be having a good time. As long as I turn off my phone and stop working. So enjoy your summer, and I'll look forward to working ... but not right now. My kids are calling, and I think I see Mickey Mouse up ahead!
