Dealing With The ‘Ick’


Some call it the doldrums, some call it being down in the dumps; I call it ‘the ick’.  Here we have the unofficial start of summer but here in WI it’s dreary, rainy and icky; just enough to drain the happy out for a short time.  So it was this morning for me, just feeling blah and icky and needing some sun (and for the next 54 days to be in the past).

Now, I know that not every day in FL will be bright and sunny, but the sunny days will far outnumber the grey ones (the opposite of here) and there will always be our Happy Place even on those grey days; you can’t have a grey day any day in Disney World.  🙂  So, I listen to some Disney Park and Disney movie music, look at pictures of past visits, do some work toward the move and picture the dream…and the ick passes by.  It also helps to know that you’re not alone in this dream and that there are others who have already made it, some who are on the brink of making it and others who will be following.  All united by one hope, one wish, one Dream.

So, the ick has been pushed aside for another day and the Dream awaits.

Thank you all for following us on our path to our Dream and keep on following yours!

  1. Just the thing I needed to read today, Mark.. it’s cold, windy, dreary weather here in Boise, Idaho and I have been dreaming of Florida and WDW all day and it really is nice to know we aren’t alone on this journey. We just need to keep focused and remember the dream! Great Blog! 🙂

  2. For me, all it takes is either MouseWorld Radio or Illuminations Reflection of Earth to do the trick…

  3. Love reading your posts 🙂 and following you along on your journey. Just wondering why you are moving to Florida?

  4. That’s funny… reading your blog is one of the ways I deal with the ick :)!
