    And now for the real story....

    "That Miss Ellen, she CRAZY!" - a quote from my Ally. And she knows what she's talkin about!!!

    So we kicked Cammie and Joan out to go see Villains and believe me, it made it a lot easier to get showered with only two in the room instead of all 4 of us. Although I must admit that 4 women sharing a room wasn't nearly as crazy as I thought it would be.....

    We stood outside and said our goodbyes to the Magic.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then our goodbyes to Atlantis...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then our goodbyes to our cabin as we decided to head out and cause some trouble....

    Ellen said goodbye to her sanity, trying to imitate the Cinderella mosaic.....

    [​IMG]

    Cause...."That Miss Ellen, she CRAZY!"

    Then it was time to head to the District to see my sweetie....

    [​IMG]

    "That Miss Ellen, she STILL Crazy!!!"

    And yes, this is when it happened........

    It was the birth of Pauldo in the Skyline lounge.....

    [​IMG]

    Of course, all I wanted to know was....
    WHERE'S ALEX?????

    I ordered my new favorite drink of all time, a martini called "OohLaLa" and I received a Pauldo "OohLaLa."

    [​IMG]

    We tried to put on brave faces, hoping our Alex would return soon.....

    [​IMG]

    And then..... the girl of my dreams.... came through that door....

    And gave me this.

    [​IMG]

    No freakin idea what it was but it was NASTY!!!!! I tried to order something different, but my girl Alex soon whisked it away and made me a REAL OohLaLa.....

    And yes, Ellen, she did say, "Dees ees not OohLaLa. OohLaLa ees martini, does THEES look like martini?"

    She had me at "Dees."

    Before long, Cammie and Joan met up with us (yeah, like they had trouble finding us! ) and we headed down to dinner.....

    Tonight we would be dining in Enchanted Garden....

    [​IMG]

    For my appetizer I had....
    North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli - with roasted garlic and sweet basil in a light tomato broth.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Somebody ordered....
    Thyme and Garlic Brioche - filled with Chanterelle, Hedgehog and Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Leek Stew in a light buttermilk cream.

    [​IMG]

    We pretty much shared everything, and it was all delicious!!!

    Someone ordered the....
    Pan-seared Sea Bass - with Saffron and fennel risotto with a sweet chili glaze for their entree.

    [​IMG]

    And someone ordered the....
    Caramelized Sea Scallops - with roasted asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and pearl pasta, garnished with caramelized leeks and veal jus reduction.

    [​IMG]

    And soon, word spread that the DISmoms were on board. Because we were greeted by the chef!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Does anyone know WHY he came out to our table? Was it to ask us to leave and we had our photo taken with him first? :rotfl2: Or was he just smitten with the DISmoms?????

    Dessert....

    [​IMG]

    And of course you know what comes next......

    Napkin hats!!!!!!!

    That is a really great picture of you Ellen. My only question is why do you have a ring of sausages on your arm? :lmao: Well, at least that is what it looks like to me. ;) Or else it is a really big bracelet.

    Yeah, all caught up here!
    How fun to see the Magic in port, that must have been so awesome.
    And all your other adventures were just too funny. Love the Pauldo and Alex drinks too. ;)

    Not gonna lie, I was cracking up while I was reading your updates this morning. :rotfl:

    That Miss Ellen strikes again! :rotfl:

    And the Oh La La. "Dees aint no martini!". That is the strangest looking martini I have ever seen. Thank goodness your savior bartender came along. Sounds like not a minute too soon. I will remember to look her up when we cruise next year. I hope she is still there. :thumbsup2

    Dinner looks amazing! Yum!

    Good morning everyone! Sing along with me-

    "The best part of wakin up, is bacon in your cup!"

    :rotfl2: I've had that stuck in my head for 3 days- so, good luck with that, Kara! :rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    We started our dinner at Enchanted Garden with some rolls-Multi-grain Loaf and Country Current Bread with Chickpea-Garlic Purée

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    YIKES!!! Sorry about the overexposure! I love this picture of Cammie-

    [​IMG]

    So then Kara had-North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli With Roasted Garlic and Sweet Basil in a light Tomato Broth

    [​IMG]

    I chose Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower With Crispy Noodles and Wasabi Dressing and it was fabulous!

    [​IMG]

    Joan had Thyme and Garlic Brioche Filled with Chanterelle, Hedgehog and Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Leek Stew in a light Buttermilk Cream

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Did Cammie have it too? Between courses, Kara explained the snoring situation in the cabin-

    Click to play-
    [​IMG]

    And then we learned about the south...and NJ....

    click to play-
    [​IMG]

    For entrees, I had Pan-seared Sea Bass With Saffron and Fennel Risotto with a Sweet Chili Glaze

    [​IMG]

    I think Cammie (and maybe someone else?) had Grilled NY Strip Steak Thyme Roasted Vegetables, Double-baked Potato topped with handmade Herb Butter.

    [​IMG]

    Is that right? It doesn't look grilled to me- it looks more like prime rib or roast- anyway, we all shared Caramelized Sea Scallops With Roasted Asparagus, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Pearl Pasta, garnished with Caramelized Leeks and Veal Jus Reduction

    [​IMG]

    It was in the center of the table. I really enjoyed my fish, but I wasn't that crazy about the scallops. For dessert, I think this was Steamed Lemon Buttermilk Pudding With Citrus Reduction

    [​IMG]

    And this was Sweet Temptations A trio of Esterhazy Cake, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Chocolate Silk Mousse

    [​IMG]

    There was also Banana Foster Sundae Rum-glazed Bananas, Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Caramel Sauce

    [​IMG]

    And of course, the chef came out to meet us, because he wanted to see the 4 women who snarfed down all this food for himself! Which was followed by.....oh, crap. It's hat time.

    [​IMG]

    Oh. My. Dear. Lord. :eek:

    Transitions are sooo hard. I always get such insight into Sean from kids like yours who can verbalize what they're feeling. My friend, Jane's, son, Greg is like that- I have learned sooo much about Sean from him!

    I am really looking forward to the trip with tim- HORRIBLE guilt about the other two, tho- not that they're complaining, it's just all in my head.:headache:

    Thanks Carrots! I am silly! But I still like Pauldo- he was so sweet!

    Did it taste like paint thinner? I have had them like that- YUCK! :scared1:

    I will definitely check out Meridian this spring! Thanks!
    [/COLOR]

    Alex was awesome- we all adored her- she was an INCREDIBLE CM!!

    And thanks for the hugs- court was fine, Sean is all ours again. ::yes:: The court appointed attorney (who comes to the house to evaluate everything and report back to the court) said the nicest things to me- she said she was in awe of me and how calmly I dealt with our son. It was really sweet! :) Now all we need to do is get approved by Social Security- for now, anyway, that's it!

    And school is going well! He seems fine! :banana:

    Thanks! Now that is going to be stuck in my head for the next three days.

    I am SO glad I can't see your food pictures right now because I am already starving. All I can say is dinner SOUNDS delish! Except for the bacon in a cup. :rotfl2:

    Happy Belated Birthday, Kate! :goodvibes I'm glad to hear good things about VWL, I'm like you, haven't met a DVC I didn't like! This one kind of baffles me, though- I keep thinking it's AKL without the animals....funny you mentioned the bike ride, I already had that pegged as something we would be doing- Tim & I both love riding bikes! :thumbsup2

    And I am so glad the surgery is behind you and all is good- I bet that is a huge relief!


    They were wearing earbuds! :faint:

    I dunno- I'm STILL thinkin that would be pretty bad no matter how much you reassure us! YIKES!!![/COLOR]

    That's pretty scary. I hope the wine helped this past weekend-

    Love your trip reports. I saw someone had a ticker for a DisMom meet in May 2013 Land & Sea? When is that? Just wondering if you will be on our Fantasy cruise so I can watch for you guys.

    He won't come right out and tell me why he's upset, but his behavior and the things he does say make it pretty obvious. His OCD kicks into high gear (obsession with the number 10, school buses and Linney) and he needs to listen to music more than usual to block out other things. He also tends to chatter incessantly in a very circular way and everything needs to be done NOW.

    He was better today than last week. He still won't talk about school though, except to tell me what he ate for lunch!

    Edited to add: I just booked a vacation to Vegas for me and Mike second week of October for our 16th wedding anniversary! Hotel was crazy cheap and JetBlue had a sale today. Yay!
