Relaxing was very nice. We are always on the go, it was nice to just kick back and BREATH!

Now it's back to routine. Grumpy is taking the SAT again on Saturday. Still filling out college applications too. He has another campus tour next week. I was hoping it would coincide with our Disney trip, but it didn't work out that way. It's off by a day or so.

I'm still working on the ambulance bill, but now the ambulance company is advocating for me too! Still amazed that the person who called was able to put a hold on our bill when the last person said it's impossible and would go to collection after a couple more bills were sent to us. If my appeal doesn't work, then the ambulance company is appealing on our behalf.

Anakin is doing better with his seizures. Still having them, but nothing big. It's just a matter of turning him on his side so he doesn't choke when he has them in his sleep. Goofy has been able to sleep through them, so finally one of us is getting a full night's sleep!

So those 5 days of mostly relaxing was very needed! Also for dh's parents. His grandma lives with them and she has end stage alzheimer's disease. She was able to go into respite care for his parents to have a getaway! This was their first in years!!

It's a cold morning in central Florida. 20 degrees cooler than yesterday morning. Brrrrrrr.

While Anakin does his seat work today, I am hoping to pack. I didn't get much done yesterday. Got some of Anakin's and Grumpy's clothes picked out.

I would really like to go to the candlelight processional this weekend. Neil Patrick Harris is the narrator. Perhaps another pumpkin spice funnel cake is in the mix too!

We haven't used our Universal passes since the March trip. I've never seen their Macy's parade and might want to check that out. We also have never checked out Sea World's Christmas set up and might check that out too. I'd also like to see the resort trees, and get our annual picture taken at the Yacht Club's tree.

A lunch at CSR is a must! Goofy, Anakin and I ate there on Monday. Lunch is now a buffet!! It's a QS service for those on the dining plan. For those on the cash plan, it's $16.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids. Drinks are included, but not specialty coffees or alcoholic beverages.

Thanks! There's so much to do and so little time to do it! Winging it works well for us. The only hold up is that Grumpy thinks sleeping til noon or later is part of the plan.

Grumpy is done with that computer class. He got a 94% in the class. Thanks for your help the other weekend!

This time we won't be updating from the resort. Free internet at CSR was great last time. POFQ doesn't have that. We are doing another carriage ride, but Anakin doesn't know. It will be a surprise!

Yay for single digit dance to DLR!!

Hey Michelle- getting caught up! Loving the most recent report! I know you said DTD was super busy- thanks for that text. WE will definitely avoid it next year. I book our November trip tomorrow through DVC, we are going Nov 9-17th. We will just avoid DTD during that FEstival of the Masters weekend for sure. I loved all the chalk art pics though- so cool!

So are you guys heading back this weekend then? are you staying at CSR again? The buffet does look pretty amazing!! YUM!! I am going to be so jealous if you get to see Neil Patrick Harris at the processional, please take pics of you do. And hope you get to check out Universal too.

now that work has slowed down a bit, hopefully I can stay caught up now!!

It's the food court at CSR. They have a new buffet for breakfast and lunch. Ala carte for supper. It's just for a 30 day trial. I hope they continue with it. They do not accept Tables in Wonderland.

At the American Pavillion, right near the candlelight processional package entrance. It's a little funnel cake stand. It's close to the pin cart!

I hope you get the resort of first choice!

Yes! We are heading back this weekend! We are staying at POFQ for the first time ever. We have stayed at POR many times though. And we checked out Lisa's room when she stayed at FQ in Oct.

We will be doing the standby line, so we'll see how it goes for the processional. I'm sure this will be a pretty popular one.

So glad to hear he did well! I wasn't any help at all. He's a smart boy, it was all him.


Your pics of the new buffet at PM look awesome! Now I want to go back to CSR just to try more foods.
