I started a review last Sunday night, fell asleep in my chair, and when I woke up and tried to post the first segment, the board had logged me out due to inactivity. I logged back in after I hit "submit", and my post went POOF! disappeared.
I was too sleepy to recreate it, so now it's a week later and I'm going to try it one more time.
Right before we left for the cruise, my computer crapped out and I've been using a loaner laptop, which didn't have any of my stuff on it.
Bruce pulled all my files from the old hard drive yesterday and transferred them to the laptop, so my pictures have finally been uploaded from my camera. I will attempt to post a few of them, to hopefully enhance the review.
We are Kay and Bruce, not married, live 40 miles from each other, I on the north side of Dallas, he on the south side. Perfect arrangement for the past 4 years. This was our second cruise together. We were on the Ecstasy last October 31 to Cozumel and Progreso.
Since I was a first timer last year, I was planning everything for months, but didn't find this board till about two months before the cruise.
This time, I was a lot more laid back, checked in here frequently, but didn't really get in the "cruise fever" mode until about two weeks before we left.
By that time, my job had me so ready to be on a vacation ANYWHERE, I was totally antsy about getting gone on our cruise.
Of course, as anyone who has a job knows, taking a vacation means getting ALL your work done before you leave, having it all piled up waiting for you when you get back, or BOTH.
Since I manage a staff of about 20 box office cashiers/ticket takers, I had to make schedules for three weeks out before I left, as well as approve payroll remotely the night before we left town. So, even though I was not at the office on Sept. 9th, I still had to do some work that night before we left!
I will try to be amusing, informative, and not write the way I talk, which is to say, TOO MUCH! (not sure that is possible, though)
