Sorry I have been away so long. I had such good intentions of blogging from the ship. The internet connections were just too hard.
The internet was come and go at best on the ship and after loosing a couple of posts that were almost finished, I just gave up.
We have been CELEBRATING for the last two weeks. First on a Disney Cruise with Parker to celebrate his 11th birthday. He had a BLAST. Then our 38th anniversary was June 3rd, so our trip covered both dates. Then we went straight from the boat to a plane to the wedding of a long time friend. We finally arrived back home late last night TIRED to the BONE... I guess that's what vacations are for...fun and fatigue.
There were a few mishaps on the trip that I may share later, but so many great memories and lots of pictures to share...BUT IT MAY TAKE ME A FEW DAYS. I probably have never told the blog world but I SUFFER from POST TRIP/VACATION DEPRESSION, every time. Today would be a MAJOR CASE. No matter how much I tell myself I will not be down and depressed, it happens without fail. I wish there was a drug you could take as you leave a trip and come home feeling great. I wish airlines were not such a hassle, I wish somehow the mail would SHRINK while we are gone, instead it multiplies....I have at least 100 pieces of mail to open and probably more than a few bills to pay. Then there are all the phone messages to return (even tree customers wanting to be sure of their Christmas tree date) and then there is the laundry...
I can never rest until I get it all done and put away...a sickness I have had to deal with all my life. It's DONE! I even feel guilty sharing those feelings as I know there are so many that would love to be going on a cruise and cannot...So please know that I feel very blessed to be able travel and ESPECIALLY with the grandkids...
I have so many of my favorite blogs to catch up on. At 50 cents a minute on the ship I had to read fast when I had a chance and still got off the boat and owed them $125.00 for internet minutes...and most of that was just communication with my kids back home..
I have lots of fun pictures...and a lot to say about DISNEY CRUISES versus DISNEY at the PARKS. I hope to work on the pictures tomorrow.
The Disney winners will have some special treats coming their way in the next few weeks. I had to have some things shipped home. Will leave you with one of my favorite shots of the week....My Parker looking at the sea on our first day to sail. I just wonder what he was thinking.
I will be BACK SOON with a post and pictures of our trip, plus some great beach pictures of Greg and Dana and their boys on their vacation. How I missed my funny little JACK while I was gone. He loved all his surprises but we missed that little man SO much. I need an entire JACK day this week.
