Yeah, I'm busy.


Late last night, panic struck and I realized we are leaving here soon and I needed to get the reservations finished and so much more. I made reservations(after reading great reviews) of a mom and pop place on St. Pete Beach that has one bedroom and a full kitchen. Two minute walk to the beach. I also researched and found a church in St. Petersburg that has an indult at 12:30 on Sunday. It is in a chapel so I made note of it. I know how I am when I get to a new church and want to try and "blend in". Honestly, with indults in both Orlando and St. Pete, reservations made and good seafood joints found, I believe I am set. The rest will go on a to-do list and will work itself out.

I did find out that we need a note from the boy's doctor to make things easier at WDW. I'm not a big fan of Disney and what they stand for but with kids, it is a hard choice. We are going one day, my daughter has never been on a vacation and this is all long overdue. I will try and blog on the road. This will put my Blackberry to the test.

Today I am taking all three kids for haircuts. I have never attempted this in my life. We still need to shop for back-to-school and order uniforms. I'm clearly in over my head. Not to mention orders for my business that got to gooooooo. If anyone who has been to St. Pete's has recommendations or tips, I'd be happy to hear from you!

Never been there, but it sounds like a great vacation!
Hope you do get to blog once or twice.

St. Peter, pray for them!

Which indult church did you find in Orlando? The only one I know of is All Souls in Sanford.

Yeah, we are going to the one in Sanford. It might be a drive, I haven't mapped it yet. We are staying on International Blvd. We are going to St. Jude's in St. Pete's.

Sanford is very far from Orlando.
:(

I just Mapquested it. 45 minute drive. Eesh. Thanks for letting me know. The good thing is it is in the evening. I will see if I can get on one of my forums to see if there is a NO that is surprise free as a backup.

Yeeeeahhhh, I hope you can.
That's my sister's diocese.
If you find something decent near Canaveral, let me know so I can tell her!
:)

P.S. If you don't have anything better to do, it WOULD give you a chance to see a bit more of rural FL, which is beautiful and the anti-Disney.
I think you might enjoy the trip to Sanford...

We aren't going to Disney until Monday so we have all Sunday free. 45 minutes is how long it takes my husband to get to work. It's not a huge deal unless we hit traffic.

Thornie,
Naw, you won't hit traffic on a Sunday morning.

It's Sunday at 5:30. I'm not too worried. I think we will eat a late lunch and have dinner after Mass. Thanks for all the tips!
