Default Tuesday and I'm Back!

Good Tuesday morning all, it is 1 am and I am still up after getting home around 7pm Mon.
Gotta catch up on that laundry!
I want to share with you my favourite picture of the whole cruise:



That pretty much says it all, right there: dancing in the pool at Margaritaville in Grand Turk, having the time of our lives!
It was a great cruise on the Ruby, with many special moments, and I will get started on the review and photos as soon as I find time.
Meanwhile, it's back to work for me today, and that is gonna be hard!
Missed you all, and thinking of those CMs who are cruising this week.....

donna

Good morning Mates.

Welcome back Donna.

That is a beautiful picture, and you can see the happines on your faces.
Too bad you have to go to work so soon. I will be looking forward to your review.

We are in a heat wave here in Ct. with records being broken on a daily basis. We will probably need the AC on wednesday.

have a nice day everyone.

RD, beautiful pic and sorry you have to return to work immediately.

Nothing on the agenda today except maybe hose off the deck, the pollen is way beyond the extreme range. You would think we have green glass tables on there.

Hope Todd, Ray, Trip and Henry are having great weather.

Good morning mates. It's cloudy and warm here. I wish the front would just move through and get it over with.

Donna, I love the pic! You and James do indeed look happy. I got the webcam up the day you guys were leaving and you guys must have been the first ship out because you were already halfway out of the canal...but I started waving like a fool! I know you had a good time and I'm looking forward to your review.

Phyl, I hope you had a good day yesterday! I hope the rest of our cruisers had a nice day, too. I hope Ray and Todd aren't giving Trip too bad of a time.

Well, it's off to see what I can get into this morning. Have a good day all. Have a wonderful day.

WELCOME HOME RD! Love that picture. Sure looked like you were enjoying the dance after a few drinks I'm guessing.

Another warm day here in southern Ohio. D/H is out for the 2nd golf outing this week with at least 2 more on the schedule. Glad he can get out it gives me a chance to get some things done around here.

I sure would like to be a little mouse on the Epic cruise right now cause I bet it is a wild one. Trip, Ray & Todd together, who knows what is happening!

Hope everyone has a great day!

For those of you who were waving at me on the port-cam at sailaway, I'm sorry for not waving back, because I was having too much fun dancing at the sailaway party at the pool - Princess sure knows how to party!

Welcome back RD, looks like you had a grand time. I am sure Trip is having fun with Ray and Todd. Henry, too, is relaxing on a deck!

It is to get to the mid 80's today in NW Ohio. We, too, have been setting records the last several days. This is July weather!!!!!!

I got my INR results early today. I, again, dropped . It has been two weeks of warfarin and I need to get between 2.0 and 3.0. I have been up to 1.37 but dropped twice! Ugh. Still on injectable blood thinner and the warfarin and I am running out of space to inject! One big giant blue, purple, yellow, green mottled mess on my stomach.

I see the hemotologist tomorrow; I will have questions for him!!!!

Since I won't be on the internet tomorrow, good luck Snorkl with your surgery on Thursday. You will be in my prayers.

Hope your day is better, today Moiraine. Think of you often. I helped with my mother-in-law when she needed care in the home. It was no fun, but it is what you do when they need it! Still, nothing compared to what you do and are going through!

Everyone else - hope you have a great day.

Good morning everyone, from a wet Texas. It depends on who you talk to, but for most we received around 4 inches of rain last night. It sure was a stormy night.

Welcome home Donna. Sure glad you had a good time.

Not much going on here, but I do wish all of you a good day.

Luanne

Good morning from St Kitts. Spent some time in the warm hot tub up by the Solarium pool this morning. It's a gorgeous day here. We are probably just going to stay on the ship today, and enjoy the quiet. Last night we went up to watch the glass blowing and got treated to watching a guy create an awesome turtle. It really is a much better show in the dark than during the sunlit days.

RD, I love the picture of you and James in the pool!

Praying for Snorkir as she gets ready for surgery, and for Moraine and the rest of you as well.

Phyll

Good morning. The sun is shining but it's cold. It was 37 last night.

Welcome back, Donna. No morning post could beat that pic.

Good Morning cruisemates! .. and Welcome Home RD!

The "real" desert weather returns today after a couple of cool days here in Scottsdale. Forecast high today 82. YEAH!

I've several different groups of friends in town this week, so golfing with one of these group today, another tomorrow, then another Fri, and yet another on Saturday.

So, a busy fun week ahead.

Got an email from Mike yesterday; his son is ill again, in serious condition, and back in hospital. So let's all think good thoughts for he and his family today.

I have to agree about Princess knowing how to party. They are the only line we have been on that actually does a sail away part and loved them.

Hey there Cruisemates! It's a late post as I have been in town for pre-op testing and hospital registration all day.

As Luanne stated, it has been a very stormy past few 24 hrs. I mean raining cats and DOGS! WE really needed the rain though so I am not complaining..Though due to flooding, I had to take the "scenic" route to my doctors office and it took me about 1.5 hrs to get there today. That was a little irritating, but other than that - your typical day. Doc said pretty much everything I wanted to hear and will be coming into the hospital over the weekend just to check on me. Very surprising to hear that from any doc!

Stopped off at Golden Corral for late lunch/supper and while it was not my first choice, the BBQ chicken was surprisingly quite good. We were really starving since the hospital kept me a lot longer than anticipated.

Haimia, I sure hope your hematologist has answers for you. I feel so bad for you for what you are having to endure. Thank you for the prayers. I appreciate all I can get.

Phyll, I've never been to St Kitts - I have to say, I'd be off the boat and wandering around. Although I have heard it is a small port. Sounds like a lovely trip!! Thank you too for the prayers.

Donna, That has to be one of the happiest "couple" pics I have ever seen.
I just love it!! Thank you for sharing with us.

Kuki, I will whisper a little prayer for Mike and his family tonight.


I probably won't post much for a week or two after surgery but I will be thinking about all of you and wondering how and what ya'll are doing.
