Alternative Title: I CAN’T GET OUT OF BED or My Legs Are Killing Me!
Even though it was our third morning on vacation, it was the first one we actually slept in. Of course, by sleeping in I mean we woke up at 9:30. We have been going nonstop so far and it was nice to be lazy even for a day.
It was not as easy to get out of bed as I thought it would be. I must have spent a good 20 minutes rolling around in bed trying to get my legs to function properly. My boyfriend spent those 20 minutes laughing at me. Finally, I pleaded for help and he obliged. Luckily, there was a sample of BioFreeze in my goody bag because my ass (literally … I am not joking here) needed it. My boyfriend spent the next 20 minutes rubbing the knots out of my glutes.
When I was finally capable of getting out of bed, we went in search of breakfast. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any place still serving breakfast at 11:30 even though it was a Sunday! We decided to head over to Downtown Disney to see what we could find there. By the way, not only was I wearing my “I did it!” shirt but I also rocked my medal all day! 🙂
Once we got to Downtown Disney, we headed straight over to the Earl of Sandwich to grab something to eat. We were both absolutely starving at this point and therefore very irritable. I decided on a yogurt parfait and the Veggie Sandwich. My got boyfriend got the Full Montagu Sandwich and the Earl’s Cobb Salad. He ate the sandwich before I could take a picture of it.
After lunch, we wandered around looking in some of the shops. It was really crowded so we didn’t stay in any shop for very long. We stopped by the Team Mickey store to check out the sports gear. I was looking to see if there was any new runDisney gear while my boyfriend watched the guy carving the baseball bat. We also ventured over to the Lego store.
Before we left, we headed over to the Ghiradelli store to grab some coffee to go. I absolutely love going to the Ghiradelli store because as soon as you walk in the door there is someone handing you a free sample of chocolate. Is there anything better than that? Pumpkin Spice Caramel samples!
We grabbed our coffees, got on the bus and headed back to the hotel. Oddly enough, that bus ride seemed longer than the one last night that took me to the start of the race. I was falling asleep on the bus and absolutely relieved when my boyfriend suggested we take a little nap before finding something for dinner. Our “little” nap turned into a six hour long nap! Oops!
Yesterday, we talked about going to Jellyrolls, which is a dueling piano bar on the Boardwalk. After out six hour nap, we decided to take it easy and stay in tonight. One of these days, I won’t feel so old on vacation! We headed over to the Community Hall and grabbed two movies to watch while we ate dinner. Tonight’s dinner consisted of the pizza my boyfriend brought back from work yesterday. I guess I haven’t had pizza in a really long time because it was surprisingly delicious. Even we though we had practically slept the day away, neither one of us had any trouble falling asleep before midnight!
