Hello all, sorry I've been so MIA. Drama and more drama, everytime I feel like we have overcome an obstacle something else happens.

I am continuing my planning, it's all in my little notebook I carry in my purse, I will hopefully have some free time tomorrow to post my updates. But here are the life updates:

Jack transitioned into regular full time kindergarten a couple weeks ago. He is doing very well in school, he got a 100% on his first letter/spelling test. his behavior at home has been less than favorable though.

I took on a second title at my place of employment, and am also working on creating other programs for the center as well. Currently I've taken on tutoring/teaching a home schooled child that is on the spectrum. And I'm trying to start a moms support group and parents night out program. There are other programs in the works too, but those are the ones we are currently trying to get started.

My DH recently spent the day in the emergency room for a severe allergic reaction he had to something. So we are working even harder on making sure we are following the gfcf diet for both him and Jack. Which might alter some of our dining plans, though I added in a special dinner one night for just me and my husband. We've had a rough year I think we deserve one meal alone together.

That's about it, I'll post some new pictures of the kids with my trip update hopefully tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well and that I haven't lost everyone.

Still here.


Your a busy woman, so I'll be patient about the updates.

That's about all the programs you are working on. You obviously found your calling.

Sorry about the hubby, glad he is ok. And you are right, you deserve a nice romantic meal!

Glad to hear things are going well with work!! I hope your DHs diet issues settle down soon - I'm sure that's really hard for all of you!!

I hope Jack's behavioral issues settle down too - I'm sure he'll get into the new routine soon!

Happy to hear you have a special meal planned for you & your DHS!! You definitely deserve it!!

Thanks Amy, I'm hoping he gets a handle on the diet quickly. We go back to the allergist the 23rd.

Our day with no plans has become a full day ;-)

So Wednesday March 16th was going to be the non park day, more for the kids, mostly Jack. But it has now become a fun filled day with plans all over the place. But still no parks will be visited by any children.

My sister is not such a morning person, but she'll have to learn to be on this trip and especially on this day. We have a girls only breakfast planned at Kona Cafe for some yummy coffee and probably some plate sharing so we can all taste the famous tonga toast and macadamia nut pancakes. I'm also curious about the juice, I'm sure we will each try that as well.

After our delicious breakfast, I'll be driving my sister and Mom over to Universal for them to have an adventure. Mom is most excited about Harry Potter area, and they both will really enjoy the thrill rides. Don't know if I mentioned that my sisters husband doesn't ride roller coasters or really any wild rides. He is most definitely not a thrill seeker, and my Dad can't handle a lot of noise and jerky rides, so Mom and Sis are sure to have a GREAT day without worrying about anyone not wanting to ride something.

After dropping the thrill seekers off I'll head back to check on the boys and see if they need anything before I head off to my special DISmeet with a DISer I've been chatting with for about 2 years and can't wait to meet. Melissa aka jmskinner. We haven't made any plans yet, but I'm sure we will have a great time no matter which park we decide on.

The men with the children will be back at the house swimming, watching t.v., and playing games all day. It should be a relaxing yet crazy day, as is the case everyday with two little boys, and we are adding a little princess to the mix.

When I head back to the house it'll be a quick shower and change of clothes to head out for a surprise dinner alone with my DH. I'm sure I'll tell him as we get closer to the actual trip, but I'm not telling him just yet. I have two dining reservations booked for the same time:

Teppan Edo

and Whispering Canyon Cafe


I think he'd like the second choice more, but I've got to do a little research on the dietary issues. I had booked I think California Grill but neither of us would really eat anything on that menu. I LOVE that Disney now has menus with prices on their website. Now I don't have to go back and forth between so many websites. After our dinner I thought we'd take a night time stroll wherever we dined or downtown disney.

Then we'll stop to pick up the thrill seekers and get to bed for another early morning in MK.

Your new plans look great!! I love that you get some "you time" and the kiddos get their break all in the same day!

We love the food at Teppan Edo and not so much at Whispering Canyon Cafe. I found WCC to be very greasy. Disney is great about food accomodations at every restaurant, but I wondered about Teppan Edo until I saw it for myself. On my recent weekend trip there was a person with food allergies at the table next to us. The chef cooked that person's meal first then went on to cook the rest of the meals. My vote is for Teppan Edo! I've eaten there three times so just let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Jessica! My yes, you two definately deserve a nice dinner for some alone time. Sounds heavenly! You are one busy Mom right now!

I loved Teppan Edo too, such a fun and different experience. The food was very delish as well.

Great plans with everyone doing their own fun things. It'll be nice to come back to one another and share how your day went too.

Great to hear from you again! I hope you will be able to have a wonderful adult dinner!

On the dietary restrictions: Do you know that you can get in touch with Disney on this and they will make sure to provide food that is safe to eat? The DISabilities board has lots of info on that. We had a note of my sister's food intolerances on all our ADRs and all places took care of her needs, some really in a wonderful way! The chef we spoke to at WCC was wonderful, as well as Jiko, where she even got a special lactose free menu!

Looking forward to getting to meet you. Whatever you want to do that day, you know me, I'm up for anything.

You know I love WCC!!! But both sound good.

Greasy food is right up DH's aisle, however doesn't sit too well in my stomach, so we'll see what happens. I think Teppan Edo would be more couple-ish (as in the atmosphere, I hear WCC is loud) than WCC too. I might pick your brain in January

Yes, I'll need to make sure everyone has a camera, and that they actually use it

Thanks, I do have the contact info for the dietary stuff, and I love that now when you make a reservation online, you can click on allergy issues. I did that on my recent adr's, have to go back and make sure they all have allergy boxes clicked.

I might lean toward Epcot, since I don't think we'll be visiting there this trip, at least not with the kids. But as long as you don't mind, I think you and I should decide the week or even the day before, I know that goes against all DIS planning but it would be fun to just fly by the seat of our pants

ACK, did you see my ticker 111 days...

I need to get to work on finishing our countdown mickey head. Yes I am partially recycling the one we were using last time, I put so much work into it, I just need to change some of the mickey heads and the date of course. Pictures to follow in 11 days on the night of the BIG reveal/party (theme yet to be decided). I'm very glad that I actually get 4 days off for Thanksgiving, I normally have split days off (Sunday/Tuesday), so I'll be able to really get caught up on DISing, planning, and creating for my two upcoming trips. I have a list a mile long it seems

So you read it here first in 11 days I'll have a nice update, complete with pictures and a fun countdown party/reveal
