Default I'm back in Arizona and wishing I were cruising!

I'm back at the homestead and went back to work today. The flight was uneventful, if LONG and uncomfortable! My body clock was still on Eastern Daylight Time, so after José took me out for a wonderful steak dinner, I crashed at 6:45 p.m.!! (But my body thought it was 9:45.)

Susie was a wonderful cruising companion and we had a great time. We met at the airport in Orlando about 2:30 p.m. on the 11th, and when we turned off the light in the hotel that night at 12:30, we were still talking! And so it went, for 9 nights!

The cruise was very relaxing, and we took full advantage of the extra-wide balcony we had. We had breakfast out there every morning but one, ejoying the sea air with our coffee.

You must ask Susie what impression she had of the Carnival Glory upon seeing the ship from the dock in Key West. I'll let her tell you her reaction herself, rather than quoting her.

It was great to meet with a wonderul bunch of Cruise Mates on Sunday in Orlando. If you've never had the chance to go to a Cruise Mates get-together, I highly recommend it. I had a great time with the gang, and I thank you all for planning it when I could be there!

Glad to hear you had an uneventful trip home Jennifer. It was great meeting you..... I honestly felt like I was talking to an old friend. I'll keep you posted on the band mom antics and let you know when we do a cruise again..it might be a while since several of us have graduations this year!

Good morning Jennifer,

We're happy to see that you made it back to José and home safe & sound. It was so nice to meet you and everybody else on Sunday, and to hear about your Glory cruise with Susie. We look forward to meeting you again soon under equally happy circumstances.

Nice to see you again. It always brings back old memories of the Summit and others to follow.

Welcome home Jennifer, glad you and Susie had a great time. Hope the PCD is not too bad, I'm still in the "this time last month" mode, thinking of my cruise! I enjoyed seeing the photos of all the CMs at your get together last weekend. I hope that someday I will be able to meet some of you too, I feel like you're all my good friends!

Welcome back, Jennifer. It was so great to meet you on Sunday. You're a sweetheart.

Susie already regaled us with her "big" comment! She's so funny!

To keep PCD at bay, ask Jose to dance the macarena with you after dinner. <G>

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Welcome back Jennifer. Can't wait to hear about the escapade under the table Sue hinted about. What's up with that??? Inquiring minds want to know!

J/K

Book that next cruise in a hurry.

Regards,
Thomas

Hi, Jennifer!

Wish we were still cruising, bummer that I have to fix my own breakfast!!! Also a bummer that I keep waking up at 6:00 a.m. waiting for the knock on the door, I'm still on eastern time zone, too!!! :-)

Glad you are home safe and sound, now you can start counting down to that Panama Canal cruise in March!!!

Welcome back Jennifer.

I'm glad to hear you made it home safe and sound. Sounds like Jose was sure glad to see you. What a nice guy to treat you to a steak dinner.

I knew you and Susie would have a great time together. Just wish I could have joined you.

Take care now, rest up for the next cruise and don't work too hard.

Phyll

I know what you mean, desertcruiser...I've been back in Tucson for exactly two months and it seems like the cruise was a different lifetime! Well, at least Hurricane Marty which has been playing havoc down south has brought some much-needed rain to this part of the country.
