Homeward Bound

by Meghann on January 3, 2010

Orlando here I come!


We departed our winter cabin in the wee early hours this morning.

I actually had a horrible night of sleep. I have such difficulty breathing in this dry air and my nose just couldn’t take it anymore. I ended up moving to the couch around 3:30 this morning so that I could sleep upright and give my nose a chance of breathing.

My little brother had claimed the only humidifier that came with the cabin early on, but I think next time I will go out and happily purchase my own and sleep as close to it as possible. Oh humidity, how I miss thee!

I had prepared breakfast last night and ate it in the car on the way to the airport.


A bag of cereal with Kashi Good Friends and Puffins, topped with vanilla yogurt and paired with an apple.


I tend to get nauseous if I wake up early and don’t eat. My stomach was very happy when I finally filled it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The rest of my family ate ate the airport and I grabbed a portobello sandwich to go to eat on the plane.


It looked alot better before I put it n the to go box. :/


Right now we are chilling with the lap tops and waiting to board. Thank god for free Denver wifi !! ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya in the Sunshine State!!

Be safe!

14 Courtney January 3, 2010 at 4:24 pm

I’m surprised the humidity really affected you so much! I had no idea :]

15 Christy January 3, 2010 at 4:43 pm

I never thought I’d hear someone say they miss the humidity! But I guess that’s a good point… it’s harder to sleep!

ahh that breakfast looks dreamy ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so nice to see other people who pack up their meals like that – I always do it, and no-one else in my family does – they always end up being the ones who go hungry though ๐Ÿ˜›
I must say, American cereals have such cute names!! Kashi Good Friends and Puffin? That’s so cool! I wish England had more stuff like that ๐Ÿ™‚
I’m hoping my new blog (one day old today, hooray!!) will showcase some good English stuff though – I hear our chocolate is the best!? Do drop by if you get bored on your travels! (
Have a safe trip ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m originally from Ohio, but now live in Denver. I missed the humidity at first, but now I go visit home and miss my dry air! Amazing how you miss what you’re used to. Looks like you had a fun visit…I’m glad to hear you enjoyed my beautiful state!

Looks like you had an amazing time! Hope you get home safe!
