Oh what a feeling!


THIS is what relaxed, worry-free and stress-free for a week looks like. Ahhh, that Caribbean Sea! We had so much fun, ate too much food, gained five pounds, but I did walk five flights of stairs several times a day. For our evening dining room arrangements we were seated with four couples from Alabama. I don't have time now tell you all about the fun we had with these wonderful people, Wayne and Bootise, Rhonda and Randy, Johnny and Debbie, and Bill and Debra. Suffice it to say, my laugh lines are much deeper. More later; right now it is back to reality and seven loads of laundry.

Oooh, a cruise! Eastern or Western Caribbean? We've done both and loved every minute of it. We've always gone as a family, but hubby and I would love to go just the two of us. :)

I am SO happy that you two had such a wonderful vacation!! You really deserve it!! Since you always have things to write about, even on an "ordinary" day.....You'll have weeks and weeks worth of "material"!! Can't wait to start reading some of it!

Nice to have you back in blog world. So glad you had a great time!!! And I agree with Becky. Plus I think "Wayne and Bootsie" are just begging to have characters named after them.

Hello Linda...So glad you and your sweetie had a getaway. Can't believe you walked all those stairs and still gained 5 pounds. Could have been worse, right? Could have been 10 pounds so maybe five is not so bad! ha! We were away for the weekend, too, at a Bed and Breakfast in Vermont. Will post on it eventually. Take care. SO glad you are relaxed and happy. You deserve it after working with those little ones all year long. Susan

Oh yeah, I agree with Tammy, I also immediately thought that Wayne and Bootsie were two great names, too!
