Watching the Clock

Today - I'm watching the clock. Something my cover letters and resumes say I never do. Today, I exempt myself!

At present it's 2:19pm on a Friday afternoon. In two hours and 41 minutes I will be on holidays. Twenty-four hours from this time I will be boarding a plane in Vancouver bound for LAX where we will hurry up and wait until 10:30pm for the final leg to Orlando.

You'd think I'd be welling up with excitement and joy. And I should be! But all I feel is exhaustion, and an overwhelming sense of "what haven't we thought about?".

It's all good. Once I get on that first plane tomorrow I will be visually and verbally giddy. I can feel it building.

A fellow co-worker - who is an ultimate fan of Walt Disney World - even brought in and wore his one mouse ears for me today - just to get me in the right frame of mind. And he, like all past visitors to anything Disney - is full of advice of all the must sees. It's amazing to me how excited other people get when they hear that you're traveling to Disney. I've had total strangers give me instructions.

I called the credit card company to tell them that we'll be traveling and the moment that "Dave" heard my destination was Orlando, he cut me short and said "you're going to DisneyWorld aren't you? You've GOT to go to DisneyWorld!" Once I affirmed his dreams I spent the next 10 minutes listening to him pontificate on all the stops that can't be missed and why didn't I forget taking my husband and take "Dave" instead!

"Dave" is a total stranger to me, yet somehow I have a sneaking suspicion that in some office space in Winnipeg "Dave" will be day dreaming about a credit card customer who's at the happiest place on earth - where he'd rather be.

What is it about Disney that brings this out in people.

Anyway - it is now 2:50pm. I have one hour and forty minutes left in my day, and there are just some things I need to accomplish here before I put the key in my office door lock for the last time until the 28th.

The next time I write it will be with mouse ears on!
