Gearing Up for the Cruise

You'll find my lovely husband's account of our upcoming Cruise here.... I swear, he totally misunderstood me when I told him I liked cruising. He seems to think I meant spending lots of money on expensive vacations with a ship at sea -- when, in actuality, I meant none of that. I was thinking park, trees, bushes, flashing of car lights...that sort of thing. Nonetheless, I'm keeping a close eye on his bag....to ensure that he isn't trying to drag along a 50# bag of concrete to hook to my left ankle just before he hoists my fat ass up and over the ship railing for quick access to my life insurance-- like Stewie did to Lois on Family Guy. We'll be out of commission for a week which I can't wait for.

Today I finished work with a Phoenix turn (speaking of work, have I mentioned that a lady told her children to "Step out of the woman's way" as I tried to pass them in the center aisle a few weeks ago -- I'm buying a bra...and that's all there is to it.) We've been tossing things in our suitcases and gearing up for pasta leftovers from last night -- grilled chicken, sun dried tomatoes, asparagus, kalamata olives, Parmesan cheese sprinkled liberally on the top. Mason will be staying with his aunt Melanie who loves him to death and takes amazing care of him. He loves her so much.....

Enough of all of this....I hope you all had a great weekend. Stop in again, would you please? Let me raise a glass to each of us....for happy days -- in each of our homes and lives.

Your "fat ass". That's funny Lewis. It seems more and more lose their loved ones overboard on cruises out of Galveston. So be careful Lewis. I'm just sayin'.
Oh and you think "Aunt Melanie" loves Mason as much as you. Keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel less guilty. ;)
Have fun!
