I'm Gonna Need A Vacation From Vacation

Let's see -- my upcoming trip to Florida includes:

*  excursion to a ren faire.  Never been to one before, and I know I'll have an excellent guide in the form of mornblade  and his lovely wife.

*  Wikki Wachee Mermaids.  STFU.

*  At least one day at Harry Potter World

*  Meeting clionona  at Harry Potter World so we can get our picture taken in our robes under the Hogshead sign

*  My parents want me to meet with them for a while while I'm there.  Yeah, that'll be a treat.  And as if that's not enough, my relatives from my mom's side of the family want me to say hi.  You'd think the fact that I haven't seen or spoke to them in several years would clue them in that I might not want to do that.

*  Overnight at Jules' Undersea Lodge

Holy crap!  I'm only going to be there a week!

I hate the thought of doing something every single day.  I mean, I'll have access to a pool and access to a beach.  My usual MO is to do something and have the next day to process it.

There's also how I behave in new environments.  I tend to wander, getting the lay of the land and figuring out what is where.  I'm going to be in a whole new state.  I'm probably going to not only want to examine how the neighborhood is laid out, but maybe do some local stuff as well.

I'm starting to think I have waaaaaaaaay overbooked for the trip.  So I'm probably going to pare down the list of things.

Jules' Undersea Lodge would be a gas.  But I think that will wait until next year.  The Ren Faire, Harry Potter World, and Clionona are non-negotiable, I'm doing those.  And I doubt I'll be able to dodge the parental units my entire trip (the rest of that nutball family?  Oh, I have ways).  I think I'll just do a few things (those key ones I mentioned), and I'll do more next year when I have a better idea what such a trip entails.

Jesus, I can't believe how many typing errors I made.  I must be tired.  I'm going to bed.  Wake me later.
