My husband and I finally had vacation at the same time.
We were planning on going down south to visit my family for the entire two weeks we were off work.
Mom was having a lot of problems with her mobility and the doctor told her that the cooler weather of the north wasn’t helping. She and dad packed up all their belongings, took my baby sister out of school, and headed south. My sister was thrilled because they would now be living within a few miles of Disney World. She thought this was the greatest. While we were visiting, we thought it would be great to take a family trip to Disney World, and I made reservations. Just walking outside from the airport to the parking lot was like walking into a sauna. I hadn’t realized how hot it was since the airport was so well air conditioned. Dad hit a switch on his remote that started the car. By the time we got in, the AC was running, and I could feel the sweat drying on my skin and causing my skin to prickle. It felt even warmer when we got out of the car and headed into the house. My sister nearly knocked me over when she ran to me. I couldn’t stop laughing and hugging her. I was wondering if I could make it for several hours in this heat. I asked mom if they had portable air conditioners you could carry in your purse. My sister said we would get used to the heat, but I wasn’t so sure she was right. Maybe I just had to soak up as much air conditioning as I could while I was still in the house.
