Back from Orlando

May 2nd, 2011 at 07:01 pm

We relented and took DD to Orlando for a fast four-day break. I'll freely admit it was as much for me as her since I spent my break ill and tackling single parenthood since DH was in England.

The airfares were cheap, the condo was super cheap, the car rental inexpensive, now if I could've just ducked those theme park tickets. Since we've "done" Disney a couple times, and because DD has become a Harry Potter maniac, we went to Universal for a day. I'm not much of a ride fan, but I thought the Harry Potter and the Forbidden whatever was terrific. I really enjoyed the stroll through Hogwarts too. But the rest of Universal was not as good.

The SeaWorld tickets allowed two days for the price of one, and I thought it was the best bargain there. The shows were terrific. We bought groceries and ate every breakfast and two of the three dinners in. Not as much damage as might have been done.

So now we're home and I'll need a few days to dig out and recalibrate the May budget. The "eat from the pantry/freezer" challenge will begin!

    I'd also reassure that the airfares are cheap, the condo is super cheap and the car rental inexpensive.
