2018 was one of the fastest years of my life! It has also been one of the hardest for me. I’ve been through a lot of shit this year. It was hard for me to find joy in writing this post at all. I’m glad I decided to do it though because it was nice looking back on the GOOD things that actually happened. Here’s to hoping for a better 2019!
We decided on taking an adults only trip to Universal Studios Orlando. We planned this vacation on New Years Day 2018, so it has been a LONG year of waiting for it to finally arrive. Our main focus was Halloween Horror Nights, which is the largest Halloween event in the U.S. but obviously wanted to go to the parks too. My parents had never been to Orlando – it was fun seeing everything through their eyes! We had such a fun time but I was definitely ready to get home to my kids after six days!!
Well after an exhausting night at the E.R., we got back to our resort around 2:00 AM. I couldn’t sleep at all. I felt so bad for Kasey and thought our last two days at the parks were going to be horrible. No fast rides and no water… our vacation literally only involved those two things. Luckily, I was wrong.
I was looking forward to our fourth day of vacation because we were spending a whole day at Universal, which is our favorite place to be. The day was all about rides, food and endless butterbeers. Sadly, it ended up being the most exhausting and upsetting night of the trip.
