Back to life/Back to re-a-li-ty…
It’s a new month, a new quarter, and I’m 5 days away from another overnight stay at Disney World. Here’s what’s happening in the meantime:
We’re back from Disney World! And while that’s normally a “so what else is new” statement around here, what’s different about this time is, we’re back from FIVE DAYS at Disney World! Believe it or not, it wasn’t enough.
Videos are going up on our YouTube Channel slowly but surely. The dogs are back from the sitter – finding a reliable sitter was a game changer – and wondering where they live, really. They’ll be back on their schedules soon enough, in time for us to goof them up again.
In other news, a few of my active queries have either been actively turned down or silently passed on. I have four active queries left at the moment, and as I get back up to speed in my author chair I have to research some more agents/agencies to contact.
I put writing on hold last week for the most part as I knew the trip would throw off my routine. Now I have to get back into my daily groove.
Another in a recurring series, Labor Day edition:
quickie brief rundown of what’s been happening at this end these days lately:
Hey, it’s the weekend, which must mean that we went to Disney World! And son of a gun, wouldn’t you know it, we did!

More notes and bonus features after the jump:
It’s the weekend, which means we have returned to Disney World for more fun! Also Sun, which is nice in moderation. How can you get lots of Disney World without lots of heat stroke and sunburn? Click here for the video or watch it below:
We enjoyed making this video… not just because Jaime came up with a theme for the week, but because we got to check out lots of new stuff at Hollywood Studios. For example, there is a new BB-8 character experience at the Launch Bay that is in addition to the other experiences everyone already knows and loves. I was amazed at how quickly they built it.
Hooray! At long last, we made it back to Disney World! Yes, I am well aware that there are people all over the place that either don’t or can’t go to Disney World every weekend, or at all. I get that. But being honest, we moved here to be closer to Disney World. We’re very fortunate to live down here and we’re very grateful. But three weeks of no Disney World was a bitter pill.

Our Disney annual passes are still blacked out for Spring Break, and that means another opportunity to check out a place that has been on our to-do list for a while (it’s been on Jaime’s list even longer): DeLeon Springs State Park, or more to the point, the Old Spanish Sugar Mill restaurant.

Now that we’re officially blacked out from Disney World parks for two weeks, we’re taking time to check out other parts of central Florida. So today we went waaaaay up the street (10 minutes away) to the Black Bear Wilderness Area. Black bears? Wilderness? Area…? Excellent! /air guitar gesture

The official web site said that there could be bears, gators, and otters. Otters?!
