04:11 am: thinking happy thoughts
...and if I really must awaken at 2 am, I prefer that it be happy thoughts that keep me there.

I'm going to a conference in the fall. In Orlando. And Peter and Teddy are coming. I have made reservations. It WILL HAPPEN.


I'm kinda thinking Wizarding World of Harry Potter on Friday (Peter will probably either stay at the hotel or do the rest of Universal), Disney Saturday-Monday (the conference starts on Monday, so Peter and Teddy will do their last day alone).


Peter's being a bit of a curmudgeon about it. He's convinced it's all a lame capitalist exploitation scheme.

Capitalist exploitation? Sure. Lame? Uh-UH.

I figure this is the last year I can take Teddy out of school without causing upheaval (and probably the last time I go to this conference for a while, too; this is my first time since 2000). My flight is paid for. Some of the hotel cost (during the conference) is paid for. Circumstances ain't gonna get better than this.

We haven't told Teddy yet 'cause yesterday was A Very Bad Day and we don't want to associate Very Bad Days with Big Rewards.

I was going to write that the day was just fine; it's the evening that was Very Bad. But while Teddy seems to have had an excellent time at camp (he's totally digging the JCC program), he did have 3 potty accidents. I think it's because I put 2 milks in his lunch and he got so involved in what he was doing that he forgot to go to the bathroom.

Accidents happen, of course, and don't make Very Bad Days all by themselves. It's the aftermath that made it Very Bad. Teddy has trouble with transitions, so we always have some adjustment when his routine changes. And Peter, who handles the everyday stuff with considerable grace, was In A Mood, so he didn't handle Teddy's not handling things well well. It was a Particularly Bad Evening.

yes indeed

If Teddy comes back from camp having had no accidents and with a good disposition, life will be as close to perfect as it's gonna get today.

I have to admit that I enjoyed reading this post because it included many capitalized words. I'm very tempted to try it myself, but I'm concerned that I'll make a mistake or two.

If you need Good Ideas for your trip to Disney, let me know. Steph and I haven't been in two years, but we've got books and memories and pictures and Opinions on what to do when you're in the parks.
