I’ll Fly Away

T-minus 1 day, 23 hours and 19 minutes.

Can you tell how ready I am for this trip? In less than two days I will be on an airplane headed for Florida, the first leg of our magnificent vacation. We’ll have a full day in Miami, to go explore or just hang out in the infinity pool on the roof of our hotel. Then on the 16th (which is also my youngest daughter’s 32nd birthday) we will board the Carnival Vista, the largest ship in the fleet, for eight days on the Caribbean Sea. Wheeee!

But wait, it gets even better: we also have six days at Disney World and Universal Studios. Two vacations in one! I have clothes appropriate for the Magic Kingdom—LuLaRoe sells all kinds of Disney items, and I have a shirt, leggings, and even a dress. Who knew that at the age of almost-59 I’d be running around in Mickey Mouse gear? But this trip is different from anything I’ve ever experienced in my life, and it’s time to cut loose and really enjoy things. Time to let my burdens slide off my shoulders and be a child again, full of wonder and joy.

This is my last post of the year. We don’t get back till New Year’s Eve, so I’ll share my adventures with you after the first of January. In the meantime, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa or whatever you celebrate. I look forward to seeing you next year!

I'm a retired registered nurse and writer who also happens to be street-rat crazy, if the DSM-IV.....oops, 5---is to be believed. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder at the age of 55, and am still sorting through the ashes of the flaming garbage pile that my life had become. Here, I'll share the lumps and bumps of a late-life journey toward sanity.... along with some rants, gripes, sour grapes and good old-fashioned whining from time to time. It's not easy being bipolar in a unipolar world; let's figure it out together.
