well it is 0930 here! This is it! My last shift WOO HOO! only another 91/2 hoursto go!
i got the shock of my life last night, my husband who is usually rubbish at secrets said he wanted to give me my anniversary present as i had just got his. he said he couldn't wait anymore. so he asks me to close my eyes and hold out my hands. knowing my husband i thought oh god, what is it? anyway i open my eyes and there is a little blue box in my hand, i open it and inside is the most beautiful diamond trilogy ring! i don't kbow if you have the trilogy rings in the US/Canada, but it is a ring with three diamonds in it, they are for your past, present and future! i am absoloutely thrilled to bits! i need it sizing, but i'll do that after my hols! he said he had visions of me passing out in the Britannia restaurant so he didn't want to cause a scene!
have a great day CMs
What do you mean this isn't how they eat onboard?

Good Morning you all that are up and about already.
Well, vacation is over. Back to school for me yesterday. kids go back next Tues. It's been 10 years since I have worked full time. It's actually pretty exciting as this now helps to pay for more cruises. that's my mantra. I have a picture of our ship in Alaska on my desk ( Vision of the Seas) well, just heard DH's alarm go off, got to get him and kids up. Kids off to sitter's. My little pirate starts Kindergarden on Tues. Hard to believe. they keep asking when our next one is. Hmm.... maybe Santa will bring us one for spring break. Take care all. I've missed being on board as we have been on "vacation". That means that I haven't had a chance to even catch up on what is happening.
Good morning friends! Lexx....what a wonderful surprise! Your hubby sounds like a sweetheart. Have a wonderful trip. I'm hoping today will be uneventful at work....I could use one of those! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Good morning mates...we tried to get to bed early (9pm) but of course the phone rang, dogs had to go out, kids needed stuff. But by 1045pm we hit the pillows. Had a quiet day yesterday doing stuff with 2 girls.Today we are out again and getting those important snacks she needs while she is flying.
Anne it is so good to see you again! How about a get together in Tampa? What kind of cruise are you thinking about for spring? We are planning on another one next year with the 2 girls.
Lexxity that is a very sweet surprise! Enjoy your cruise too....
Have a wonderful day mates.......

It's 7:00am & I'm getting started @ work. Counting down. Sounds like some people are starting out the wknd right. Hope everyone has a good day & still praying for those in need & even those of you not in need.
have a good one!
Another dull day here in northern VT. Temps will rise, but not a great deal of sunshine.
My highlight yesterday was picking up my pup at the vets. He was only gone 1 day, but I missed him terribly. He is now sporting one of those dreadful cones for 10 days. His neutering went well, though he does have an ear infectionn. So between all my meds and all his meds...it gets a little time consuming. He wants to get right back to his rowdy routine. It'll be hard trying to keep him calm for 10 days.
Not much on the docket for today. Work, scrapbooking, daughter's band concert.
Nothing very exciting on the horizon. I would like to get to a Pow Wow this weekend that is near by. It is a chance to reconnect with my Abenaki heritage. We don't get many opportunities to indulge in these types of cultural celebrations in Vermont. Hopefull it all works out.
Hope everyone has something to look forward to today.
Good Morning, One and All!
Right now the sun is shining and it's very humid already here in Avon Park,Fl.We have a 60% chance of rain which will start from the East and to West.So, we get it before Sue, in Tampa. We had a pretty good storm last night, still, starting around 8 PM or so.Lots of lightning.
It will be a relatively light day at work and I don't have anywhere to go tonight, so, I can relax a little.Perhaps I'll put some greenware pieces into the kiln at work before the rains and storms, and fire them, so the Residents will have something to glaze or paint.
It's donut day again--every Thursday- so off I go to get ready in a couple of minutes! Have a wonderful day, Everybody ! Lynne
I have risen but absolutely refuse to shine! I went downstairs at 4 am (as usual) to go to work and found 3 teenage girls sprawled all over the couch in the family room. I was taking our little Shih Tzu out for her morning bathroom break. When I brought her back in I said "Isabelle, go see Mikie!" She ran in there and kissed all three. One of her friends looked at me and said "What time is it?" I told her and she said "It does suck to be an adult!", then rolled over and went back to sleep. They will be up at the crack of noon.
Hope everyone has a great day!!!!

Congrats Lexxy..a cruise and a ring..boy! that is nice..good to see all of you up and at it this morning..Hope you have a good day and please stay safe
I hope everyone continues having a good day. Lexxi, congratulations on your anniversary. Your Husband sounds like a real gem!! Sue, glad to hear thatt hings are going better, hope it continues. Have a great day everyone.
Morning all from Montreal. My you guys are up early this morning!
Lexxity, what a nice surprise! I like the significance of "past, present and future".
Trip, you need to get more sleep!
Angela, watch out for those needles!
Anne, good to see you back onboard. I misread your post; when you talked about your son starting school and then said "they are asking when our next one is" and you said maybe Santa will bring one for spring break, I thought you meant another BABY!! !!
Mary Lou, have a good day at work, CaribbeanCats you too!
Sue, wishing you a calm and peaceful day....
VTJen, we just had a Pow Wow at the Khanewake reserve (Mohawk) near Montreal. I've been to a few in the past, they are very interesting and fun.
Doug, "been there, done that" (teens on the couch), and yes, sometimes it does suck to be an adult!
bigjohn, sometimes I feel like your our "daddy", always looking out for us and reminding us to stay safe. It's a nice feeling.
OMG! I think I see sun peeking through the 3 days of cloud! It does feel warmer and more humid today too, temps are going up to 30C again by tomorrow...summer is back in Montreal!
Things are cranking at work, and we are having some Internet issues as well, so I haven’t posted much. You all know the weather here in S. Fl.. It rains a little almost every day, to keep the sauna effect going. A good observation…I’ve noticed that the Health problems seem to be subsiding on the CM board.
Still not able to nail down a cruise yet but I’m trying (ask anyone around here…I’m very trying).
Lexxity, its your lucky day…I happen to size rings for free! Just send it to me.<BG> Don’t forget to insure it.<VBG> By the way I’ll have some Properties for sale real soon. In a couple weeks, a very nice property around Calgary, nice time of the year to be in Canada…By the way, If you buy this house I’ll throw in a famous Hotel Bar.lol
Have a great day everyone.
Jason If a grin is transmittable, and laughing is contagious, here’s hoping for an epidemic!
Good morning cruisemates... somebody stop me, I'm looking up cruises!
Have a great Thursday. Today is my Friday so I'm happy. Three-day weekend, here we come! Mark's car died recently so we are down to one car and are searching for another. Here's hoping we find it this weekend.
Trip, I hope you get to sleep in a little longer tomorrow morning. The group I meet with once a week at 5AM for coffee started because people couldn't sleep past 4AM. One of the ladies decided to just get dressed, grab a book and head to the local coffee shop. The rest is history. I still have to set my alarm to get up that early, but I'm not complaining.
Anne, it's good to see you back with us. I have to say, I thought the same thing as Donna when you talked about your Christmas surprise!
Lex, congratulations on the beautiful gift. Isn't it great when those husbands pull off those kind of surprises every once in a while.
Think I'll work on my Alaska scrapbook later. I've never done one before, and it's a half hearted attempt at best, but it's kind of fun reliving the cruise/tour as I do it.
Good morning everyone.
It is a beautiful morning here in Minnesota. Clear and low humidity are in the forecast for today. Yesterday we had a good day. We took our granddaughter to a local county fair and had a great time. She enjoyed the petting zoo and the animals. She also became permanently attached to a carousel horse. Luckily she ran out of steam before we ran out of tickets, so the jaws of life did not need to be employed. :-) Grandma is still spinning but she also enjoyed it.
Today will be a lawn mowing day and some gardening.
Lex: Nice gift. I'll print out your post and put it under my wife's pillow. But change it to cruise tickets :-)
I hope everyone has a great Thursday.
