My Favorite Things This Week

My favorite things this week: • The brain training app Peak. I’ve only been using it for about a week, but I’m enjoying the challenges and the knowledge that I’m exercising my brain a little each day. • Blackout curtains.

Our Last Day in the Disney Parks

Today is our last day in Disney World, and I spent it in the hotel room with a miserable head cold/sore throat. What a bummer! Honestly, my head is killing me right now so this isn’t going to be long. I do want to have a record of yesterday, though, so here’s a quick [edit: ok…
