Where we've been.....

Cruising the Carribbean for a week.

There are so many pictures and so much to write about that I thought I'd break it up into different posts so it's not such a huge post at once. But I have to tell you, a part of me thought that I would absolutely HATE being on a ship, stranded, with so many people. But this was absolutely fantastic! It was a luxury cruise liner that is less than a year old. Apparently it's the nicest ship that any of the other seasoned cruisers have been on too. There were few children on board and a lot of older people. The food was fantastic, it was beautiful, clean and luxurious. I can't praise it enough. Mark and I were both very sad when it ended. Yes, you heard me right. We could have gone for another week. We enjoyed it THAT much.

It was a continuing medical education conference for me, which was the whole reason that we went. In addition to our 9th wedding anniversary coming up April 1st. Mark got to relax the mornings that I was in class, which fortunately were just the mornings we were at sea. Remember the Terri Schivo case that was all over television? Well, one of the speakers or "teachers" of my course was her end of life doctor. Nice and funny guy.

Our ports of call were San Juan, Puerto Rico; Bassettere, St.Kitts; and St. Maarten.

I plan to write a separate post with photos on each of our ports of call.

Bear with me.....

I won't be posting for a few days and I will tell you why, but later. I haven't abandoned the blog, I promise. I have TONS of stuff to update you all on including renovations with pics!!

Game Night

Weekend before last we had a "game night" with some of my coworkers and their spouses. We played Trivial Pursuit and well, I certainly stunk at it. Especially since it was the 1979 version and some of the answers have changed since then like who has won the most medals in xyz competition, etc. We had a lot of finger foods and enjoyed getting to know one another a little better.

Happy 33rd Birthday, Mark!

Saturday was Mark's birthday. He got a DeWalt compound miter saw. So he can now make lots of crown moulding for the house now. Yay! Also, he got a caramel turtle pie instead of a cake, because he likes it so much. We did lots of yard work Saturday afternoon, then went out for dinner and then came home and watched a movie we had gotten. And of course, enjoyed some of that turtle pie.

Please ignore the ongoing kitchen renovation in the background. I'm beginning to think it will never get done.
