Oh wow! Coming up so fast!

I am totally in love with the idea of the 14-day cruises. I could happily cruise for two weeks with no port days. So, obviously, I wish we were going to be on your cruise because even the port days will be awesome - I mean, Hawaii, come on!!!!!

I'm right with you! I always find myself slacking on taking pictures when it gets down to the last couple of days of the trip. I need to channel Shannon as well on our upcoming trip! (*I need an emoticon meditating right here*)

You guys are cracking me up. Seriously-you should see some of the stupid photos that I have!

A 14 day Hawaiian Cruise? Can you put me in your suitcase? That sounds AMAZING!

Oh, man, that Hawaiian Cruise was a major temptress to me calling from the re-booking desk through the latter half of this cruise.......

Better to have stupid photos than no photos at all! I want to have more stupid photos!

I bet it was! Ok....so I have to know....what stopped you from booking that one? I would love to do that cruise but (a) I don't think Ed would go on a 14 day cruise and (b) I bet that cruise doesn't come cheap.....of course most of the cruises don't come cheap.

I want more stupid photos too. I'm totally joining Shannon's workshop.

You know, I am pretty sure that it was the dates of the Hawaiian cruise that ruled it out for me because I didn't even request a quote. I think it is possible that what was offered on board for that one was coming up this year - I knew I couldn't swing another cruise in 2012! It is one that I would LOVE to do one day - I love those at-sea days. Have I mentioned that before?

I'll start putting together the workshop materials this week.

DH would never agree to using 2 weeks of vacation all in one shot. No Hawaii cruise for me.

Yeah, it would be hard to swing 2 cruises in one year. I'm looking forward to having some sea days on our cruise in May.

You have NO idea how badly I need this workshop!

That is too bad. I think a 2-week cruise would be incredible, although I am sure that there are many people for whom it would be too long. It takes me so long to relax and enjoy vacation, that a one-week vacation just doesn't work for me. I am so blessed to get so much leave with my current job - part of it is because I end up working so many extra hours that I am able to bank that time and use it instead of my leave. Right now, I have over 6 weeks of annual leave! I am taking two weeks at Christmas just to stay home since DD's school will be out, and it is a good thing because I would lose some of that leave - 6 weeks is the maximum that can be carried over to a new year.

Now, THAT is a great idea!!!!

You will LOVE the sea days! I am seriously considering just skipping the ports on my next cruise.

Up next: 32. A Little Fish and a Brave Princess (Day 6)[/COLOR][/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]
But the near end to one TR is the beginning of A new PTR, right????

I wish all of you guys were going on my Hawaii cruise!!!! It would be so much fun!!!!

I started a PTR...though I need to update it. And I'll be doing a HUGE TR after its done. My mother and I are BOTH taking loads of pictures and writing about our days, so I'll be including a point of view from me *29* and my mom *62*! So you'll get all kinds of good info!!!

I'm trying to talk my mom into buying an ipad so we can take even more pictures and put them on the ipad...we'll see....

Ok guys-I am uploading the pics for the next TR update. I have 92 pictures from 7 am-8:45 am. Seriously. Clearly I am the one who needs some sort of workshop (or intervention).

92 pictures from one breakfast. No scenery.

I love it!!! I was so disappointed in myself last year that I only took 1400 pictures during the course of 9 days.
