Carol, did you have to mention that dirty word!! LOL

We came home this afternoon.........it was a beautiful hot day at the shore and we debated whether to stay and go to the beach or come home and "come home" won. Glad we did because I had 2 weeks of mail to go thru, checkbook to balance and bills to pay. Paid all the bills that I have to mail and I'll pay the rest tomorrow night online. I also unpacked and went food shopping so glad we came home this afternoon. Right now I'm beat!! I need a vacation...........LOL

You are like Narce - 3 days after returning from vacations, he tells me he's ready for Vacation! I know it's hard to go back to work - many times I have actually started crying when I approached my former workplace's parking lot - then I day dream while at work thinking of what we did on our vacations - thank goodness I no longer have to work - however, it would be nice to be at least 20 yrs younger right now And RETIRED - I'd be more active and energetic! ha!ha! carol

Poor Mark is the same way. Half way through vacation this summer he said this was the hardest vacation ever. LOL, no wonder. He had to do EVERYTHING. All the cooking, pushing me around in the wheelchair, cleaning and ALL the driving. I did manage to make the bed every day and washed most of the dishes. OK, maybe half.

We are back. Came back a week early because if you can't hike there is nothing to do in Great Smokie MT National Park. Had lots of fun at Dollywood though. Came back last thursday night and headed right out for a state park here on the shore to break in my youngest daughters new camper. I start back to work tomorrow. Tired of sitting around.

So glad we can keep chatting on here. Ann has been our glue from the beginning. She will keep us together. Thanks Ann.

Celebrity isn't any more formal than RCCL. At least not for Alaska. There were men in the dining room in polo shirts on formal nights. We like to dress on formal nights because we don't dress up much the rest of the year. And like Carol we always do late dinner so we don't bother changing. We also had no problem with storage on the Millennium. It was really funny when we first got on and had to get our luggage in our inside cabin. To save our kids from paying for all their luggage (they flew and we drove) we took most of it with us. We had most of the clothing for 7 people. Then the second leg of the trip we had a family cabin that was so big we only used half of the storage space.

I am looking for a cruise now. I have to cancel our March Silhoutte cruise. We bought one of the next cruise deals but now are having trouble finding a replacement.

Thanks Patty. I'm doing pretty good. Getting to be a real pro with these crutches and scooter. The scooter is a life saver. I got the 4th cast (hot pink) off on Tuesday and now have a boot. I can start putting light weight on it next week. I think I may be walking on it the end of the month. I hope to anyway.

Poor Mark is still doing everything. I have been cooking a little but with help.

Joni,

Glad to hear your improving. I know how hard it is to not be able to walk. When I had surgery in June 2008 I wasn't able to put any pressure on the foot until pretty much the middle of October and not even full pressure, just resting it on the heel. It was so depressing!

So refresh my memory - I booked my Silhouette cruise while I was on Summit. I paid $200 deposit and have obc (don't remember how much). If I cancel the Silhouette cruise and book another I can just have it all transferred to the new cruise?

I remember yours. Before our Explorer cruise. Did you get a scooter? I love mine although it's not as comfortable with the boot. I can go shopping and go as I please. And I don't feel as guilty making Mark push me everywhere.

I think if you rebook something you can have it transferred but if you cancel and wait to rebook you can't. I still would check with the cruiseline to make sure.

No scooter..........I used a wheelchair and when I had to get up I used a walker and hopped on one foot. No way could I use those darn crutches..........I would have broken something else.

Don't forget.........I had surgery on the right foot in May which was still recuperating and I had to hop on that foot when they did the left one.

It was not fun...........and the bad part about all if it is that I still have pain and may need to have another surgery but I'm afraid and keep putting it off because I don't know if it will help or make matters worse.

Sorry to hear that. That's a long time to be in pain. Do they think it will work this time?
