Odd duck.

She has the ENTIRE bed, but chooses to sleep on my magazine...

Spring cleaning the closet!

Yesterday's closet before.

Yesterday's closet after.

Day Four @ Disney Highlights.

  • Waking up to find 10+ bug bites.
  • A sunny safari ride at Animal Kingdom.
  • Dad turning around mid ride to tell us about UNI in the NIT.
  • Moms Expedition something or other boozy beverages at our Yak n Yeti lunch.
  • Another day getting three workouts in.
  • The privilege of leaving our Wolfgang Puck waiter a note explaining why he sucked. (I wanted my sushi!)
  • The chaos that became Mom and I watching the Bachelor finale (while I was in the gym, and she thought she was texting me from ten feet away).
  • The classic raiding the fridge of all the tasty leftovers from the first half of the week.

Day Three @ Disney Highlights.


Three cheers for Disney serving egg white omelets!

Getting to check out the new and different story lines of the Star Tours ride at MGM (yes, it is still MGM and always will be).
Watching Mom get (re)served her collared greens with whipped cream on them and sharing a PB&J milkshake at a new (to us) 50s themed diner.

Not having to deal with massive crowds due to rain at the park.
But then leaving the park early ourselves and getting in three workouts.
Witnessing INSANE perfectly shaped orb hair during dinner at China.

Day Two @ Disney Highlights.

Had a great early morning workout at their fabulous gym.
Feasted on a french lunch at EPCOT, complete with cheese plate, quiche, and a delicious strawberry cake.
Which led to an accident afternoon nap.
House of Blues makes a killer bread pudding.
Bought some sweet SWEET 80s leg warmers for NLXF.
Got the chance to work off WAY too much bread, cheese, and chocolate with a late night gym visit.

Day One @ Disney Highlights.

Quaker Oats self serve oatmeal machine at the hotel. If you know how much I love oatmeal, you know how happy this made me. And all the condiments your oatmeal could desire!

An easy flight. The older I get and more I fly, the more I figure my odds of crashing are imminent. So each surviving flight is a win in my book.

Disney finally discovered how happy it would make me to have free wifi at the resort. Forget "more time for family and $20 for hardwired 24 hours", give me access!

Ponchos bought! And used!

First night dinner at Via Napoli. The glory of pizza made with Italian water is ENDLESS. Good god it was STELLAR. And the dessert of coppa di brutti ma buoni might have made me happy too.... :-)

Not even A&E?

I am the ONLY one at the gym, I ask the attendant to change the channel from ESPN. She chooses MSNBC. As a female in my 20s, ellipticaling to Hardball with Chris Matthews does not bode for a successful workout.

I feel like a family member just died. Irreplaceable. I don't know how I'm going to run.
