Vacations Aren't Supposed to Be Like This

It's Wednesday, and that means we are midway through our Florida vacation. Star woke up vommitting at 3:45 this morning. By 8:30 when it was time to leave for the day's adventure, she had thrown up six times. She was too sick to go. Right now, she and I are at the resort. Everyone else is gone. It's now afternoon and she is sleeping.

And I am bored. At home I'd have a million things to do or avoid doing (a bigger job thay you might think). But here, I just don't have many resources to ammuse myself. Tools at my disposal for this task are:
1. a web connection
2. origami paper
3. TV

TV is really shockingly boring, so let's just skip that and go right to the origami paper and the web connection. I decided I would use Star's recovery nap to figure out how to fold a "magic box" that unfurls into a rose. You can see the transformation from box to rose in this youtube video.

And you can see the videos (part 1 and part 2) that I watched to see how to do it. And look! I did it.

Also in the picture are 2 examples of another decorative box I tried recently. They're nice of course, but the rose . . . it wins.

I think there's some kind of weird combination when the fun of Disney World meets the gross hot humid air of Orlando. Isabella got super sick that time we went a few years back.

Hope Stella is feeling better. Also, I think you know that comment about TV being boring really hurt my feelings ;)
