I was excited for our trip to Orlando in April! I hadn't gone anywhere on a plane since February 2020 because of Covid lockdowns, and then the divorce threw a huge wrench into my travel aspirations. So I was definitely ready to do a fun trip with the boys to one of our long-time favorite places. We did the road trip to Iowa last summer, but this was our first solo vacation by airplane together. I did everything myself--booked the flights, the hotel, the tickets, etc. This was a big step for me because in the past the soon-to-be-ex did these things while I handled the packing and household preparations. I had something to prove to myself, and I'm happy to say that I proved it! I can do things that are scary and intimidating to me. I'm finding that they're not that bad once I actually buckle down and do them.
Anyway, on to the vacation!
I don't know how I keep getting getting lucky and dodging these bullets, but I got to travel without having to wear a mask at all, not even once! It was like the good old days! It was a nice surprise because the week before we left, the mask mandate was still in place and had been extended.
