I finally got a good night’s sleep last night. I’m not sure if it was because I wore a mask, or if that’s like Dumbo’s feather.
Max is back on the ball with his school; yesterday he finished at noon, and today at 11:15! He doesn’t have any projects, and we’ve finally wrapped up all the leftover projects he was working on, so he’s down to just new lessons every day. This is what Jack wrote me during school without any prompting:
I’ve written him little notes like this on his cutting papers, I guess he figured I needed one too. Sweet boy!
Ted, Jack and I walked around the campground to try out Ted’s new insoles; it was cool in the shade but warm in the sun.
When we came in I cooked zucchini with andouille for our side at lunch while Jack continued school. I also made some fantastic grilled sandwiches. Mom gave me some leftover ciabatta and I’ve been making grilled sandwiches with them. After I put them together on the griddle I heat a cast iron pan and set it on top for a homemade panini press. Today I put pepperoni in addition to the usual ham, and that took it over the top! I like these ciabatta from Aldi because they’re not as tough as the usual kind. Those are great for the Pressed Italian Sandwiches I’ve made several times.
After my nap we left for Hollywood Studios around 2pm. Before we left we all changed from shorts to pants…it was cold!
First we went to get a DAS at the Slinky Dog Dash, and then went to watch the Muppets. Next up was Star Tours; we hadn’t seen this version that ended with another ship crashing into the windshield of our ship and the little robot arguing with C-3P0. When we walked out of there Max wanted a picture of himself on the speeder since he’d worn his Jedi robe. He has such a hard time not smirking! It’s also hard to see this picture as real when you notice the squirrel on the bottom left!
While we were taking his picture two girls came up and gave Jack a balloon! I wish I’d had the presence of mind to ask to take their photos with Jack right then! Ted says as we walked by a nearby balloon seller Jack had exclaimed about them, but not asked for one. He thinks the girls heard Jack and decided to get him one. How sweet!
On the way to Slinky Dog Dash we stopped and watched the Army men for a bit, and then stopped again because some Storm Troopers were walking among the crowds. They told Max they were keeping their eye on him, and told me something positive because I had my Storm Trooper Starry Night shirt on. Heh.
Our last ride of the evening was Tower of Terror; it was just as awesome as always! Then we walked back to the truck. We rode the tram in today as usual, but with the construction around here they’re changing up the parking lots and it made more sense to walk to the truck.
We had just enough time before they closed to stop at the office and pick up my meds and a new battery for the jetpack. Ted noticed it was swollen the other day!
At home I made breakfast burritos for supper and they were awesome! Every part tasted so good! The top sirloin steak was great, and the fresh salsa was wonderful! I can’t wait to have that again on chips or something. It doesn’t look like much, but it was wonderful tasting! This is my rendition of what I had at the restaurant in VA when Jack and I met up with Nichole from Turkey.
We watched Thor with supper, and had some of the fresh cranberry and orange dip we made the other night with cream cheese on crackers. This isn’t as great as I’d hoped for…I’ll add a little more sugar and try it again another night.
Tonight I finally put my jeans to soak in a salt and vinegar bath to hopefully stop the dye bleeding onto everything. Jo noticed the night we went out that my fingers were really blue from them!
