no Hampshire Hills outing today

Partly because Teddy napped late yesterday (4-6:30 p.m.) and then was up late (about 11:30 *shudder*). But mostly because either yesterday's workout was a lot too hard, or there've been too many/too long/too hard in a row. My blood pressure was up. :( But it's back down, now, lower than it had been running the previous few weeks, so that's a good thing. Either cutting the sodium further or the additional exercise is helping (or both. And to be absolutely clear, I never popped above high normal, so not to worry. I do plenty of worrying for everyone.). In any event, today is a stay in (because it's freaking cold out there. Yay!) and wear jammies day. The kid's napping. This is a good sign.

Still _more_ friends are joining us in Disneyland! It's going to be a BIG ole party.

Maybe the guidebooks will arrive today. That would be cool.

little by little

Child care cancelled today BUT Teddy took a 2 and a half hour nap starting at 1:30, so I wasn't really cranky until almost 7 p.m. Made blonde brownies and hoppin' john fritters.

I'm reading _The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland_ and am quite disturbed at how many of their efficient touring tricks I already knew about.

Mail hold is in place for the trip. It's looking like the temp range will be 70ish for highs and 40ish for lows, which should make packing straightforward.
