Goodness gracious....

Me and my lack of blogging!! My family just got back from a two week vacation to Disney World. It was fabulous, but hot! September is not the best month to visit Florida unless you like temperatures in the mid 90's with so much humidity that sweat is pouring off you as soon as you step outside. We stayed at Saratoga Springs in a two bedroom suite that had a kitchen and washer/dryer. The children loved going to the pool. The Epcot Food and Wine Festival started while we were there. That is my favorite thing about Disney. We ate some great food and drank some great beer. The down side to that vacation is now there are charges pending against us with the magistrate judge for pulling Caleb out of school. Vacations are considered unexcused absences. I will keep you posted as to how that turns out. I could spend 30 days in jail, do community service, be fined, or a combination of all three. I guess when you put your child in public school they take away your parental authority and the child becomes a ward of the state. If Caleb didn't love school so much, I'd pull him in a heartbeat. When I get my court date I am going to call all the news outlets in Atlanta to see if they would like to come and do a story about this. I think it would be a great headline, "Coweta County woman sentenced to 30 days in jail for taking her mentally challenged son to Disney World." On another note, Simon absolutely loved Disney World. Small World was his favorite ride and we rode it at least a dozen times. He kissed Mickey Mouse and cried when we had to leave. He loved every single minute of it.

I am taking Camille to NYC for a night the first weekend of November. We are going to go see Wicked on Broadway. We are staying at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square. In case you didn't know, I was just in NYC in August. I stayed at that same hotel and saw Wicked. It was then that I knew I had to bring Camille back for a visit. It will be just she and I. I am so excited for her to see the city and walk the streets of New York with me. I hope it isn't too cold.

Gracie and Josiah are doing well. Josiah is in the first grade this year and still holds his pencil like he has a talon instead of fingers. He can read well and is progressing normally though. We won't start cursive for a long time. Grace is in the third grade and rarely asks for assistance with school. She doesn't like anything about school work and just does it because she has to.

I am fat. Heavier than I have ever been and apathetic to change anything. I know changing will be hard work and I guess I am too lazy for that right now. So I just buy my big fat clothes, drink my margaritas, and hope Olaf doesn't mind being married to a fat girl.

Olaf's pemphigus is under control although he still has a lot of lesions on his scalp. His prednisone has been lowered to 5 mg per day but his Imuran is still at 150 mg per day. He is still taking it one day at a time. That's the best we can do.

There you go. An update from the Facebook addict. Let's see if I can post a picture from Disney.
