Today we all “slept in” until 7:30 when DD4 and DD6 woke us up. Sigh. We let them play/watch iPads for a couple of hours…DD8 woke up around 8:30. We had a very relaxing morning full of listening to the grandparents complain about how sore they are and how much they hurt. My mom, at least, has been very vocal about that every minute of pain is worth being here with us, though, so that’s nice. My MIL, though…I really get the impression that she’d rather just stay at the resort and not go with us. That she’s resentful that I’ve made plans and that we can’t just go and hang out or whatever. I don’t know, but it’s frustrating. I’m really, really hoping that she rents an ECV or wheelchair tomorrow because I know it would improve her mood.
DH and I spent some time this morning working on some stuff that the Russian Embassy needs in order to finish processing our visas. We sent everything in on Thursday but of course they’re asking for more stuff. I got some soup out of the freezer and started it thawing/cooking (I brought five meals already prepped that just need to be cooked in the crock-pot). DH took the girls swimming and my mom joined them for a bit. Later this afternoon after getting cleaned up my mom and I took the girls to mini golf. They’d never been before and while they started out melting down because it was hard (and they’re so tired!) by the end they loved it.
We came home and got them all a bowl of soup and got DD4 in bed by 6:00. DD6 in bed by 7:00, and DD8 in bed by 7:30. My kids don’t usually sleep in when they’re up late, so we put them in bed super early sometimes and they usually sleep in a little the next day. Weird how that works. After the kids went to bed the adults all played a couple of games of Catan, which was quite fun. DH and I love to play but since it’s a 3+ players game we don’t get to play much.
I spent some time reworking my TP for tomorrow to accommodate a Tusker House ADR that I found. We were just going to do the one CM on Thursday, but I think my in-laws would appreciate a sit-down meal. So, an ADR it is, and it should be a fun one at that.
I love my in-laws. I really do. They’re good in-laws. But they are “go to the beach” people and it’s occurring to me that we’ve never done much else with them for vacation other than the beach. They came to see us when we lived in Istanbul and we did a couple of touristy things with them, but in general…I’m learning already that we should never plan another “go and do” kind of anything with this set of in-laws.
Also, the television. Ugh, it has been on either sports or news almost every minute that we have been at the resort. It’s making me crazy. I’m so tired of the noise of it. I turned it off tonight as we were getting ready to play a game (DD6 had been watching a show and was headed to bed) and they ended up watching on their phones while we were playing. So annoying. They have four favorite topics to discuss: politics, their various ailments, the weather, and Auburn athletics. I need a spa day or something!
Up tomorrow: Animal Kingdom. 10:30ish arrival until after ROL at 6:15. Tusker House ADR at 4:20. 0% chance of rain but it’s supposed to be chilly. High of 61 and low of 48 with wind chill of 15-20 MPH. I haven’t even checked the weather but I know all about it by now.
