Kuki, You're a great comic and honestly if you can do that well with your first crack at stand up comedy, you may have found your next career path.
My Mother had a ball too and my family in general was so impressed by our "cruise family" they were immediately smitten by all of the Cruisemates. The only regret I had was the my sister Cathy and cousin Laura had to leave after the first 5 days and we really missed them when they left. Those two are great to cruise with!
I returned home to mounds of stuff to do but I am very happy to see the temps above freezing, unlike when we left two weeks ago. I have a few errands to run today. I'd like to go buy a new TV and if I can find a deal on hardwood flooring, I'd like to redo our bedroom and the sunroom. We'll see how that goes. I need to find a positive outlet for all my newly found spare time, since I don't have to work on finding d/h work anymore.
I am landsick today. I still feel the motion of the ocean, even though I'm on flat land, and it is making me nauseous. I don't get sea sick, I get sick once I get off the ship though...I think it may be time to book another cruise.
Regrets... I didn't get to meet Jleq or Zydeco Cruiser, and barely got to visit with Marietta, who has been taking such good care of me over the past years.
