This is the day that we went to Animal Kingdom which we were all looking forward to going to because of the opening of the ride, The Banshee. If you watched the Avatar movie you will know that these are the animals that they flew on. We had to do a baby swap for this ride. David and I went first. I have to say it was the best ride of all and we rode it twice.
I always say that everything happens for a reason. Heather thought that she had ruined everything yesterday by her error. I believe she didn’t because the line wasn’t bad and as we found out it is too long on the weekends and this was a Monday.
Kate was being goofy with her hat. I think she had her nimmie, sea anemone, under her hat.
Heather had never stayed at the The Contemporary Resort and wanted to so we could view the fireworks from our balcony. Of course, the fireworks had been canceled due to Covid-19. She paid extra to get this suite but we thought we would still be able to have a good view of the park.
We arrived at The Contemporary Resort at around 4. Our room was ready, so we walked in to the lobby. We just didn’t feel the magic. The people were great but it just seemed like a normal hotel. There was Mickey ears on the carpet. We continued to the room hoping for more there. The suite looked like many other suites I had stayed in all over the world when we had our timeshare. It was nothing special. There was Disney art on the walls but that was it. So it began, no magic, like we expected from all our previous trips to Disney.
Heather, Dan and David when out to the camper trailer to get everything we needed for the hotel. I stayed in the room with the girls. We went out on the balcony and watched the choo choo, monorail. The girls enjoyed that. We could see the family unloading the camper from our fifth floor balcony.
I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.
I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.
Well sorry but it was Wednesday which means I had the twins. Katharine is the bigger one and Rebecca is the younger one by 28 minutes. They were 7 weeks early but only had to stay in the hospital for a month. Anyway we are quite the proud grandparents. Of course, we have many others too. These two are our 11th and 12th.
Hope you enjoyed the photos.
Anyway back to the diet. As I said earlier I had an early doctor’s appointment. We did not eat until we got home, so I just made us some protein shakes. The boys took off to a job and I started getting ready for the twins.
For lunch I had a Skyr, which is Iceland’s idea of yogurt, which is really good. I had some pork rinds too. Supper was a hamburger patty with bacon and cheese. Broccoli fried in bacon grease along with more bacon. It was a nice quick dinner.
I have been staying under on the calories but having a little more trouble with the other things. I haven’t been getting all the fat that I can have. I have been kind of bouncing back and forth on the protein. I was trying to stay at 25 carbs but I always seem to go over but have managed to stay under the 50 carbs. I think it is easy trying to keep track of all this. So far I have been doing fine on the new life style.
Well I guess the vacation or holiday whatever you choose to call it is over now. We had to start getting back to normal. Went grocery shopping, since there was not much in the house. Started washing the clothes from the trip with the help of my sweet husband. Decided what to cook for supper because the two men here think they should be fed. Started working on articles for which I have a tons of ideas for many stories. Starting with the brewery in Girdwood because I told them I would write theirs when I got home.
Dusty got the no running water in the camper problem fixed. He also figured out why we had no turn signals or brake lights which we found out while camping. It was a fuse under the hood, so that was an easy fix.
I have got the packages ready to mail outside or the lower 48 other people would say, with things I brought back for my family down there.
Supper is almost done and the boys went to look at a used generator for the camper. Things are looking good. Oh damn, I forgot about the laundry again. Guess I better go get the stuff out of the dryer and put the last load in the dryer.
Well clothes are dry and next load in to dry. Boys came home with generator in hand which David was very happy with. Supper is going to be served now and we can settle in for the night. Hopefully, a movie to relax by.
