My wife has never wanted to take a cruise before. With all the issues with Carnival lately, I thought the possibility of us taking our first cruise was flushed down the toilet (unless you were on the Carnival Triumph.) She was even more set in her ways to never cruise.

Then I found out I could possibly get a good deal on a cruise out of Galveston in three weeks. I emailed DW this morning about the possibility of taking advantage of the awesome deal even though we would have to take the kids out of school for a week to do it. I told her we could do the cruise instead of the WDW trip and we could save a bunch of money (that got her thinking.) It is the 8-night cruise that stops at Castaway Cay and a full day at WDW resort (with a park hopper ticket included!) I laid out the finer points and how Disney Cruise Lines was again rated the top cruise line by Conde Nast Traveler, etc. I at least have her looking at our family budget tonight to see if we could afford it and she sent an email to the kids' teachers to see if it would be feasible for the kids to miss that particular week (it is a few days after state testing, so I think it could be OK.)

I know my chances aren't that great, but I am excited I didn't get an immediate "NO!" from her. Baby steps.

I just wanted to share in my excitement - I know no one at work would 'get it'.

sorry bigtex, im with the wife on this one. i would pass on the "barf boat"

Update: DW is getting excited about this cruise! We should know later tonight if it is going to work for us. She has been emailing me about how we could surprise the kids with it and how we would have to go to MK and DHS during our day at WDW. Lucky for us, TP recommends MK and DHS on the day we will be there (if we get to go.)

This is going to be a real let down now that she is teasing me with all this planning stuff if it doesn't work out.

Oh, well. It's still fun. It's kind of like not checking the winning lotto numbers before you go to bed because you can still dream of winning - but if you check before bed, you are 100% sure you didn't win. (As opposed to 99.999999999999999999999% sure.)

Well, the fallback is that if you don't book the cruise, you still get to go on your wdw vacation this summer riight? Not a bad consolation!

we are home. waaaaaay to cold for baseball.
ok, urinal games!!! i had a chance to play but ran out of ammo.
there is a screen mounted above the flush valve. inside the urinal there are three buttons, start, left,right. to start the game, simpley pee on the start button. im not making this up, its a PENGUIN GAME!!!!! you have to avoid the penguins by moving left and right. didnt play that long, im guessing you need a bladder of an elephant to play.
we will be going back a few times again this year since briana is an asst. ironette dance instructor. ill have to drink more before trying to play next time.
