I live in Southern California about twenty minutes from the Happiest Place on Earth. And yet, until last Friday, I hadn’t been there in years. Who has the time, right? My schedule’s always packed with things I have to do. How could I possibly make time for that level of fun when I have so many appointments in a day? But that’s just what I did. I made time. I opened my planner, picked out a day, and scheduled a visit to Disneyland. I made an appointment for fun. And I always keep my appointments.
Friday morning, everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. It was shaping up to be one of those days. But I had an appointment scheduled and I intended to keep it. The craziness would just have to wait. And you know what? It did. I spent the day spinning myself silly on the Teacups, dancing along with Captain EO, and consuming as much junk food as I possibly could. Yes, the problems were still there when I got home that night but they just didn’t look all that bad. Six hours of fun can certainly shift your perspective. And armed with my new pair of Minnie ears, I knew I could tackle anything.
