Rejuvenation in Progress

Well, that happened.

Yes it did, and I kinda liked it.

“Ha! ‘Kinda liked it’? I call BS. You’d rather sit there and write than [fill in the blank].” My BS Detector

All right. It’s true. Except the part about sitting there — sometimes I stand to write. Honest.

See? No BS Detection.

But it was an intense month because, as these things tend to go, everything piled on at the same time. Hey, the car even ended up in the shop. So while I hope you enjoyed my initial venture into the blogosphere as much as I did, and I hope you’ll stick with me, right now I’m gonna take a day off to rejuvenate.

“That’s right — I’m going to Disneyland!” Me. Please note complete silence from the BSD.

I have this wispy idea taking shape that I’d like to rely on original spontaneous content that strikes a chord with whoever’s reading — you, for instance. Something that will engage your brain, your feelings, your ability to connect with the human Truths we all share. And the confidence to share whatever you wish in return.

Or maybe we’ll find out those Truths aren’t as true as we thought. Who knows? I think it’d be cool to explore whatever comes up. Honestly. Fearlessly. 

Because that BS Detector will always be sitting just out of sight, waiting to make The Call.

In the meantime, I hope you have as much fun as a Wednesday can allow. I know I will!

I hope the Magic Kingdom is ready.

  1. Hey, Sue. We made it to the end of the challenge. AND, you were one of the winners of the drawing on my blog. I can’t find a way to contact you from your blog, so please contact me at elizabeth (at) elizabethhein (dot) com. Congrats!

    1. It was full of wonders and laughter, spent with two of my sisters, my niece, and my son. I’ve been there well over 100 times in my life, and I don’t remember ever having a bad day at Disneyland.

        1. It’s a tough choice, but I’m partial to HyperSpace Mountain (with a new Star Wars theme since Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise), Indiana Jones, Star Tours, and Splash Mountain. And Haunted Mansion from October through December when it’s themed Nightmare Before Christmas. And the Mark Twain Steam Boat for a quiet 20 minutes.

          For food, I’m happy with clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, and I always have a caramel apple and buy another to bring home for the next day. Somehow, their apples are always perfect: tart, crisp, juicy, and they bite back. 🙂

          You and your family would have such a great time!

          1. They all sound so amazing! It’s one of the things I know my step-daughter would love to do. I’ve heard lots of stories about the amazing candy apples and the variety of toppings. We don’t celebrate Halloween here, but I’d love to see how a real Halloween is celebrated. Do you prefer to stay in one of the Disney hotels or is it better to find accommodation elsewhere? Most travel packages offer accommodation on site, but we aren’t sure if we will be getting the best deal that way.


          2. Staying on site would be fun, but you might check through a site like for the best hotel/motel deals in the Anaheim area. I think most of them also have shuttle service to and from Disneyland. They’d advertise that on their sites. We live about 100 miles away, so we drive up in the morning to be there at opening, and drive home after they close. 🙂

            Disney’s Halloween is spectacular, and they do have a special party event that has to be reserved, but kids can dress in costumes and trick-or-treat in the stores on Main Street. But if you want to see how regular people really celebrate Halloween, you need to spend time in a neighborhood, carving a pumpkin, putting on a costume, and going Trick-or-Treating. And maybe to an elementary school Carnival, or a friend’s Halloween party. Grown ups have parties, too, with costumes, music, food and drink… lots of drink! 😉

          3. It’s especially fun for kids, but a lot of parents “edit” the candy stash the kids bring home. Some of those poor little kids think there’s something wrong with dark chocolate because Mom takes it saying, “You won’t like this.” You can bet she’s not gonna throw it out! 😀


I'd love to hear what you think.
