I love Disney and have gone almost too many times to mention. I was fortunate enough to get into Vero Beach for this past weekend. When I called 2 months ago, there was nothing available anywhere in the kingdom, so I said a prayer, crossed my fingers and I was able to get the room at Vero for myself and 3 other ladies who needed a weekend away from the boys, kids, dogs, co-workers, and all the stress that comes with being a woman today. Cast of Characters: Me: Cheryl (just turned 45 y.o) disney freak BFF: Trish BFF's sis: Jill Co-worker: Lucille We got the time off from work, booked tickets on Southwest and waited until the Thurs when we would leave the stress of New England behind. Get to the airport and found that the flight was delayed due to weather....not a great start, however, we passed the time away with a "Bon Voyage" cocktail. One of many to come!!!!! Once we were able to board, we stop in Philly for the transfer, run to the plane where they had been waiting for 45 minutes for the rest of us, and proceed to sit all scattered throughout the plane. I propped open "Pilot's Wife" and finish the read to stay awake. Landing was a tad rough, but we got down and we were off running to get the car. By now it is after 11:00pm. We get to the EZ car rental, get the keys for the mini van and trek over to find the car. Unfortuately there is virtually empty that time of night and I felt like we were looking for help in a department store when you really need someone----"Hello, anyone out there?" Anyway, we find the car (which has a small dent in it), load up, and head out. Took 1.5 hours to drive down, so by the time we check in it is after 2am and we are pooped!!!! We check into a studio and go to sleep. Next up: the RI girls know how to have fun!!!
