Disney Surprises Already Starting!


I had a moment and wanted to blog about the first Disney surprise for us before our trip even started. My "online" friend Carrie, who is "real life" friends with my friend Bethany from college won a trip to Disney to stay in the Swan and Dolphin Hotel for three days next week while we will be there!! I have been really wanting to meet Carrie and how funny that we will finally be meeting in real life in FL of all places! And, I have not seen Bethany since her wedding right after we all graduated which was...ahem...7 1/2 years ago. But, whose counting, right?


I am super excited. Please say a prayer for our safety while traveling and an extra little prayer for poor Scott. While I ran up to Kroger today to pick up a prescription, he went up the stairs to our bonus room to get our small suitcase and tripped up the stairs at the top of the first little section of stairs (there's a short section, then a half turn, then another small section if that makes any sense). Anyway, he believes he hit his head on the hand rail. I came home and thought he had gotten into it with one of the cats, but then he told me the story and when I looked at it in the light, he has quite a little gash in his head over his right eye. Yikes! This really makes me nervous because what if he had poked his eye out?! He tends to do things like this though. Shortly after we were married, he turned around too quickly in our apt. and go disoriented and bashed his head on the corner of the door so hard it was gushing blood. And, that was on a church morning, so we went to church with a huge band-aid on his head between his eyes! He said that since our 5th anniversary is so close, he figured he needed to celebrate with a new scar! (Yes, he still has a scar from that incident with the door.) Anyway, Scott has no swelling on his head, but he says he feels light-headed. I am a teensy bit nervous about that. But, we are about to eat so hopefully he'll feel better after that. So, pray for no more accidents!

Oh no! I am sure it will be all better tomorrow!!
That reminds me of a funny story that happened right after Corey and I got married. He was asleep on the couch and I came downstairs to try and wake him up and he was having some kind of dream or something because he jumped up and started RUNNING and he ran right into the stair rail and had a big bruise on his chest! It was bad, but funny actually to watch! ha ha!
Maybe you can take the first shift of driving and he can rest...or I bet the food made him feel better already!

Can't wait to see you! Enjoy your anniversary vacation, and I hope Scott is feeling better - no more accidents!

He comes by it naturally. I think being accident prone runs in the family. Hope he feels better. Hope it doesn't ruin your trip. Hope ya'll have a great time. See you after you return. We need to get together for a birthday celebration. SaraBeth was disappointed you guys won't be at Thanksgiving this year, but she understands. I'll call Scott for his birthday. Be safe. Have a great time!!

Tell Scott to keep his hands and feet in the rides at all time...we do not want anymore accidents, especially at a great place like Disney. I hope you have a safe but fantastic trip.

Just as an update, Scott is fine. His cut is still tender, but he seems no worse for the wear! We are having fun so far!
