    It's hard to believe it's been six months since this wonderful trip ended. I relive the trip, thinking of you all, every day!

    I have to find a way to get back to Italy, I'm thinking 2014. I'll be having a "round number" birthday in 2014, so I need something grand to look forward to :)

    Wow! Six months goes by so quickly! I, too, want to find a way back to Italy.

    Can't wait to see some of you guys in just a few short days!

    We will sure miss seeing everyone on the cruise but we too are hoping for 2014 (and being very glad that Jason and not me has a round number birthday).

    Here's hoping for a 2014 Italy reunion trip

    I feel the same way. We had such a special group. I cant imagine one better. Jack and I also want to go back in 2014 (tomorrow really --- but that's not possible). I think about all the fun times we had. It was a spectacular trip. It would be great if we could get the whole group back together. :grouphug:

    Marilee,

    I read more of that blog ---and I love it! Especially the Venetian laws. They were so ahead of the times, when they weren't repeating laws already passed.

    Hmmm....2014 Italy Reunion....HMMM.

    This sounds like a "cruise" chat and then a "report back to our landlocked travelers" chat.

    Knowing this group, we'll probably have 2 or 3 trips planned before the cruise is over :thumbsup2

    Anyone else at WDW yet? I'm meeting Karen and Kaye at Top of the World for drinks. If anyone wants to join us, we're meeting in the lobby at 5:00.

    Well, we're back from a wonderful week away. What a great cruise! It's so sad that things back home were so awful. As a personal loss our family lost a little girl, Lily, that has been fighting cancer for the past three years on the day we all were in Costa Maya. It always amazes me that I can be paddling around the ocean having a truly wonderful, relaxing day and at the same time little Lily is finally passing on. Life is so complicated. I'm trying to keep my cruise thoughts in their happy little bubble but it's really tough!

    So we're home, and the laundry has multiplied! I've paid our bills and our quarterly taxes, bleh, but bought our APs for next year to cheer me back up! At least I paid our taxes first! Grocery store is next! Double bleh!

    I don't know exactly how many trips got planned, but I do know that Dino caved on the trip to Germany next year! So that's at least one!!! And I bored poor Kevin to tears by saying Scotland over and over again hoping it will inspire him! I don't think he's taking the bait though. ;)

    So I wanted to prove that we clean up pretty good:

    [​IMG]

    And I also wanted to share a stingray photo for those of you eagerly awaiting the scrapbook pages. This photo is before things really got out of hand, and I was already squealing like the big ol' girl I am! Sadly there's no photos of me climbing Jeri like a tree. I'm sure that's probably on a pay per view video somewhere! :happytv:;)

    [​IMG]

    As much as I've carried on about being "attacked" and "swarmed" by stingrays, it's still one of the best adventures I've had. I love animals, and now I have my very own when nature attacks story. Though for a more accurate title it should be, Hey, Lady, quit climbing that guy and give us the squid and we'll move on nice and easy. Maybe I should have paid more attention in the proper way to feed stingrays demonstration! :scratchin

    Lauren and Jeri. We are so sorry to hear about the devastating loss of Lilly. You all are in our prayers. I don't think that I got the 'you all ' part right ..but you know what I mean.

    Back to reality :laundy: is defiantly not as much fun as being on vacation:beach:

    I love the pic of you, Jeri and the slimy fish.. You look great and you now have many wonderful memories and stories from your encounter!!

    I know a way that you can get Kevin to go on a Scotland trip and when you come on the Germany trip ...we can discuss it :rotfl2:

    Lauren - So sorry to hear about the loss of Lilly. You and your family are in my thoughts!

    That pic with the stingray is awesome! Very in the moment! Thanks for posting.

    Micki - you've got to run the "you all" together to get the right "y'all". ;)

    Ok...vacation is really over. I had to actually get up to an alarm clock this morning. First days back at work are never fun. :sad1:

    So sorry to hear about Lily losing her battle. :)

    Dino and I will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

    Reality is a real party pooper !
    At least we didn't come home to nasty Winter weather.
    I'm glad I forced myself to do laundry on the ship. The dirty clothes bag is at least manageable ... Now I just need someone to help finish the Christmas shopping and decorating. Oh and there's that tree bundled up on my front porch that needs to be put up

    { sigh }

    Lauren,
    I'm really sorry to hear about Lily. Life is so unfair.

    I'm glad everyone had a good time on the cruise. I feel like we really missed out. I love the photo with the stingray. I can see me doing the same thing. At least they have smiles on their faces, so they can't be all bad--- right?

    Great photo of you and Jeri with Mickey.
