Look at the fun swag I got to bring home with me from my cruise.



Now if only I could have also brought home the Server and Assistant Server, and the practically unlimited food supply for our pantry too... it's always such a let down when getting home after eating all the shrimp, lobster and other goodies you want to a kitchen that serves a single entree with limited sides each night. I will say that I loved being on the late seating for the minimal amount of children in the dining room, but at the same time I did NOT like eating so late at night each day. It was nearly 9:30 each night by the time the entrees were served... normally when I'm turning the lights out in my DD's room after reading bedtime stories. We're 5:30 - 6:00 pm eaters typically, due to a variety of evening activities... so eating that late was just weird. But - the lack of squalling, noisy babies & toddlers (can you tell I'm just BEYOND that stage, and happy to be so - sorry to all of you who are in that stage now and will be for a while - I enjoy children a lot, really I do - I'm just turning into a cranky old Mr. Fredricksen I guess).

Anyway, it was cool to be able to bring home the menus as mementos from our cruise. I didn't swipe them either, our Head Server, gave them to me himself. I wish I'd been able to get the complete set from the week, but was very happy to get these. What's cool, is we didn't even attend the Formal Night dinner (Prince & Princess), as we ate at Palo that evening, and we still got the menus. And note the Happy Birthday button in the center - it came with a wonderful chocolate mousse dessert, with a neat thin chocolate with Happy Birthday written all over it. I'll have a picture of that in my blog entry on food soon enough.

Getting close, but I have taken DW to her birthday 6 times. (That it fell during school fall break is not Germaine to the situation.)

Saw where you posted he's playing with toys. Glad to hear he is doing better.

Thanks. We both went to doc. I got an antibiotic/steroid/cough syrup because I live with DW. They sent DW for chest X-ray and think it may be pneumonia. Let's hope it is only bronchitis.

One of those times I'm glad to be DVC. We aren't going next summer, but I never worry about the price.

Thanks, I hope so too. We got back an hour ago, so hopefully, it if were more serious, they would have called by now. Still, bronchitis for someone who has asthma is not pleasant.

Those single traveler costs are a bear. Since the kid won't be cruising for a while, I probably won't either.

Hope you both get better quickly. Maybe a trip someplace warm and sunny would help.

Early night tonight. DD has to go to the orthodontics clinic in Lexington for an evaluation (pay us now or pay us later most likely) so we need to be out by 6 AM. I've gotten spoiled with them homeschooling. This will only be the 3rd time I have set an alarm since mid-August.

Glad to hear it is going well. When I win the lotto and move to Golden Oak, I will home school them by taking them thru 11 countries at the World Showcase as well as a safari experience and of course into space. Have a safe trip and good luck.
