We got to see most of the characters, except his favorite, Snow White. Just planning the trip was an escape from reality.
So I sorta had a very long break and it felt pretty good until the trip home where I sobbed and cried with huge reminders that my grief is not over. So I'm not sure I recommend escaping from reality because the downside is it is a huge drop back down to reality when its over. And I feel like I have to redeal with lots of things again. It gets a little weary when you think you are doing pretty good and then it all comes back and you know your going to have to sit with it again and deal. It's like the escape from reality was nice but I lost all the things that were helping me with my grief and since I haven't had to use any of them for so long, I forgot what they all were and now I need those things.
During the trip it was weird how I could seriously feel like not a thing was wrong but then there were always subtle reminders. In the hotel 4 towels when we only needed 3. And lots of newborn babies with their 3 year old brother everywhere. But it was pretty easy to go right back to my escape. Until the ride home.
