Random thoughts about the cruise:

1. My entire family had a great time! We're planning the next one - probably Alaska in May, 2008. (That's the bext therapy for depression after finishing a cruise, right?)
2. Had a great time meeting everyone from the message boards. Heather, Kathy, Tim, Keith, Debbie, and many other kept me occupied when I wasn't surrounded by my family (and sometimes when I was!). I regret I didn't really get a chance to say goodbye - didn't see hardly anyone the day of disembarkation.
3. Heather is now officially adopted by my family!
4. I enjoyed running barefoot around the deck every morning, but I'm back to wearing shoes for my daily runs (retrieved from the hotel I left them at).
5. We were a bit disappointed by the food on the cruise - hit & miss in the dining room, as consistently bland on the Lido deck. Still managed to gain about 10 pounds, most of which I've already lost.
6. Entertainment was OK - nothing to write home about.
7. Weather was cooler than expected.
8. Ship didn't seem to have a lot of activities, aside from bingo, cards, casino, art auctions, and spa specials. Thoroughly enjoyed the mixology classes - especially the first one!
9. Hans and Simon took very good care of us!

I'll see if I can figure out a way to post some of the more embarrassing pictures!

Some more of the highlights of this trip would include Luci joining Heather, Ed, Chris, Cathy and me for breakfast. Within 2 minutes of her sitting down, she proceeded to pinch food off of our plates and stuff it into a napkin in her purse "for later". Chris and Cathy fled our table before they were able to witness this interesting behavior. I think that their abandoned pastries also ended up in that napkin in her purse!

Then there is always the "Ed's Virtual Packing" story.......................

*shakes head*

Usually I use a yahoo site, but something has attacked it I think. This site started being a pain last night and wouldn't upload anymore either! I will try more later. Yes, Dave I should have all approval rights, considering it's my body parts, dear brother.

Wow, was that fun..or what???
I had the best time with all the cruise mates and cruise critics and the HAL crew on this trip. I just got home yesterday from the side trip to Vegas. I think a REAL CRUISE beats Virtual packing anyday. Heather and Kathy kept me laughing for an entire week. Thanks I needed that .
