So what is mommy (me) coming home form? Why that would be Kabual, Afghanistan. I just spent a lovely 9 months away from my family in another country, helping teach Afghanis logistics. I have to say compared to some people on deployments my deployment was very easy and I was lucky. There were very few times that my FOB (camp) was on lock down, I only had one roommate and we had indoor showers. I also had Internet in my room so I was able to SKYPE with DH and DD on a regular basis. It was hard being away but modern technology is great and I was able to talk to my family a lot. So now with that little bit of background there is also another reason we took this trip is I got a crazy idea that since the Disney World half marathon was in my time frame of when we wanted I wanted to register for it and run. With that in mind our Disney days would be January 5th to the 13th. However, my DH really wanted to drive and to make part of the vacation about him so we decided to leave on Sunday the 30th drive to Florida meandering down and making some stops. I wont talk about that part of our trip unless you want me to but I will talk about our few days we spent at universal studios. So without further ado a few quick 5 ws. Who: DD Clara 16 months old during the trip, me old enough : DH also old enough and a great daddy. What: Celebrate my coming home with a fun and awesome trip. Where/When: Jan 3-5th Universal Studios Royal Pacific Hotel Jan 5th-13th Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo house Club Level Why - Who does not love disney? and since when my DH came home from Iraq we went to Disney it's a tradition now .
