Sounds like we have it good. Our main grocery store chains are Giant and Safeway. On the upscale end we have Whole Foods and Harris Teeter. And we just got Wegmans. And some communities have smaller chains too. But everyone at least has a Giant and a Safeway. Those vary but some are quite nice.
Bottom Dollar?? Yeah I wouldn't be going there!!

I never considered Harris Teeter upscale, but I suppose compared to Food Lion it is (though i agree HT more expensive). We have both of those, Trader Joes and Whole Foods nearby, plus a Target with a grocery about 10 minutes or so away. They also opened an Aldi not too far away, but don't really have an interest in trying it.

Bottom Dollar?? For food?? Sounds scary!

On a happy note, it is Friday!!! :-)

Good morning!!!! Happy Friday!!!

Let's play a game. Who can guess which resort Valerie is booked at now?? I will narrow it down for you. It is one of the ones we have discussed this week---POP, CSR, WL or AKL. DH and I are in agreement with our choice and are both happy. So did we decide to stay at CSR? Switch back to POP? Upgrade to WL for location? Upgrade to AKL for the animals? I really should have done a PTR.

We almost did ... they built two near us, they were finished ready for opening then the whole scandal in Florida happened plus, the meat vendor was to found to be buying old meat So, they never opened, still lying empty.

I shop in Publix because I love their bakery and their meat is one of the 'safest' in the industry .... which is why is tastes so good too.

We totally go for comfort when it comes to going to the parks - stuff that won't chafe/isn't too tight. We do t-shirts and pull-overs/zip up light jackets. And comfy pants (I wear well broken-in jeans). Shorts of course if we're going to ride a bunch of water rides. Lots of ladies wear stretchy pants or even sweats. Be comfy, be happy
Depends on the park and the week. DHS is listed around 6 but MK and Epcot are listed at 7-9. The later the week, the higher it goes. That's why I won't go see MSEP if it means going on an EmH day. I hated it at 6. I can't imagine doing it at 9.

For me it's a comparison tradeoff. 6 may not be horrible compared to summer, but what are the alternatives in Dec? A 3 for DHS and a 1 for MK/Epcot is much, much better.

You are staying at the Travelodge in Winter Park.

Nope you just cancelled the Travel Lodge. You are now staying at either one of these motels in Orlando. (These are my pics)

Games are fun.

Hmmmmm.....

It could be POP so you have more shopping money

It could be CSR because it is a compromise money-wise between value & deluxe. And it would not cause tofubeast to update the roll call

It could be WL because you've been dreaming of this, and tempted by the others who have booked there

It could be AKL because it's a deluxe upgrade but less expensive than WL. And the decor & animals are a big plus

Hmmmmm.....

Ack, the pressure!

I vote AKL :-)

Pretty sure it's not POP. You already said you had decided to stay at CSR. So you probably wouldn't have brought it up unless something changed.

I vote AKL!
