Stop the World, I Need to Jump Off! Gabe's spontaneous trip
Yep, it was stop the world I need to jump off. Life hit that final straw and a flame was near. The year that just about every aspect of life that could be challenging challenged me. I called my son the night my Dad who chose to throw a hospital up for grabs. Dad had been thrown out with 15 minutes notice and I was way over an hour and a half away and said son I just canít take it anymore. By the end of the conversation with ManChild I had in hand the cheapest WDW vacation in over 25 years of visiting the world. Of course it is now the wee hours of the morning and DH is sound asleep oblivious to the outcome of bringing my father back to my Mom from the hospital nor the long conversation I had with my DS.
So the next morning I started looking at airfares. Yikes! About 2 weeks out is no time to be shopping for reasonable airfare. DH comes home from work and I give him a run down on my Fathers antics of the day before and end the sentence with I AM GOING TO WDW, ARE YA IN OR OUT? So that night I book a flight out of Midway. I never fly out of Midway but Southwestís prices are so much cheaper that the long, long drive seems to make sense at the time. LOL. More to come on that. I book the first flight out in the morning and the last flight home to return and pay the $10 to bump myself up in the boarding process Ďcause I want a window I can park my noggin on to sleep both ways.
DH ultimately decides not to join me though I tried until about 3 days out. So I call DS back and proceed to book my/our mini vacation. Now I have seen ManChild maybe 3 days in almost a year and was happy he was excited about my spontainous mental health trip. He needed a break from reality too.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
