I need a break!

The last 6 months have been very stressful with both jobs, working overloads, elderly family issues and a new dog. Tomorrow is my last final, once grades are in, I'm going on a cleaning, packing, and baking frenzy. I plan to get my Christmas cards and gifts out, then hop a plane to Florida, and get on a big ship to cruise the Caribbean for 10 days. It's not my idea of Christmas, but it's a great way to disconnect and relax, and that's exactly what I need. So hopefully the world won't end on the 21st, because that would really suck for the holidays. Have a happy one and stay safe.

That cruise sounds like the perfect thing to do---to really get away from everything! I hope you have a PERFECT time, my dear!
A VERY VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS To You And Yours...And, A Happy New Year, Too!!!!

We LOVE cruising! We typically go in January, my wife (like you) needing a total break from work. We've done both East Caribbean and Western Caribbean in the past, our favorite being a 10-day Eastern three or four years ago. This year it's a seven-day Southern Caribbean, which hits Aruba and Curacao (two new places for us).

Have a FAB time and post pictures!!

Enjoy the cruise!

...and I really don't think the world is going to end on the 21st. [rotflmao]

Wunelle, first Estonia and now the Caribbean! We're going to te Dominican Republic, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. Maybe our families ought to plan our next vacation together.

Thanks CK. you have a good holiday too. Are you going to see family? said...

i would love to go on a cruise but we just cant afford one right now. i just found out i am diabetic and we just spent with insurance a hundred and ten dollars on my stuff. then all my dr bills of late. thankfully they are tax deductible. anyway i need to go and get some stuff done. talk to you soon. miss you and have a wonderful holiday if i dont hear from you before then.

Enjoy yourselves as you celebrate the New Age on the High Seas.
Sounds delightful (especially after the downer of that copied term paper).

Oops I did it again

Getting it short in anticipation of warm weather and more jogging, it grows fast and will be long again by next winter.
