    Hello-

    I went for a walk this morning, then I did a stretching/toning type workout later on in the day.

    We have a woodchuck who is making appearances in our back yard. My son has named him "Chubs." They are hearty and sturdy creatures.

    I have a bunch of salad ingredients, so I'll probably just make one when my husband gets home from work. :)

    It is! I've looked before for previous trips and it was never that high. I was shocked. I think it is cheaper to get a regular room at the BoardWalk.

    Yeah, I'm going to bring house slippers going forward. Good idea.

    Thank you.

    Good, that is just what I am looking for. I am unfamiliar with beaches in that part of the world and did some googling for lesser known beaches and that came up. Then I booked a beach cottage on Airbnb. :)

    I am thinking of just filling a trough for my son. My grocery bill has gone up since school ended. :cautious:

    I am too. I can't stand to have my bare feet on the floor. I am always wearing slippers. I step out of the bath/shower into slippers.

    I ate my standard half-fat vanilla yogurt with blueberries and oats this morning, with a mandarin orange. Then DD and I made smoothies for lunch..banana, pear, mandarin, blueberry, raspberry, and I also ate a few turkey slices. Then I had a chicken and rice curry dish for dinner. I couldn't ride my bike to work tonight as they predicted thunderstorms again and lightning is a big no-no on my bike. But I did walk for 3 out of the 4 hours tonight, and I'm scheduled 3 more evenings this week, so I'll still get my exercise in.

    The only time you'll see very high pricing like that is either during a peak holiday period, or if there is a large convention (or conventions) going on, and rooms are at a premium. Just depending upon various circumstances, I've paid in the low $200s up to $375 for a high (Epcot fireworks balcony). I don't know when you're travelling, but the price you quoted is very high for Swalfin.

    There are various discounts, too. I'm a member of AAA auto club. and I've used that discount many times down there.

    Yes, that's what I have seen in the past, too. I didn't book a vacation for us until about 5-6 weeks ago (for next week), because of my house sale up in the air. So, that's probably I got crazy prices. I do intend to stay there sometime. I know people knock it, but I think it looks nice. I've walked around the grounds many times and that grotto pool looks awesome.

    Can't understand why anyone would knock the hotels (unless they just didn't care for the exterior design--it is radical). They're both very good hotels.

    I think people think it's not "Disney" enough. I've read people think it's just like a hotel anywhere else. I don't know any other Marriott/Starwood hotels where you can walk to two theme parks. :)

    I think they have a better selection of dining options, too. I ate at Cabana last year and had a really delicious Vietnamese noodle salad.

    The point is you shouldn't have to. I bring flip flops and bleach spray:confused:

    @Sans Souci check to see if your dh gets a discount there with his work ID.

    Good morning!!! Today is another paint day. DH is at an all-day mtg so I won't get interrupted at lunchtime.
    Tonight is grilled portobello mushrooms and salad.
    Walking and yoga this afternoon.
    Have fun today! :)

    DD requested Chicken Broccoli Alfredo for dinner because it's been so long since we've had it. I really didn't want to do that because I'm trying really hard to do low carb and eat healthier...I'm desperate to get some pounds off and it's not working. But I compromised by making zoodles instead of pasta, and it was SOOOO good. I found a recipe for Tuscan Meatballs with Carrot Pasta that I think I will try tomorrow night.
