Not a clue

I hung out with a guy one time that used to talk about his "cave room." It seemed really weird and creepy to me that he had blackened all the windows out and painted the walls black in a room in his "bachelor pad" just so he could get some good sleep whenever he felt like it. But, after this cruise- I'm starting to think he's onto something! Jared and I woke up around 9 in the morning (only because he left the bathroom light on) and got our first look at Limassol, Cyprus. Nothing to brag about that's for sure. I don't want to sound ungrateful for where I am, but seriously- this place sucked.

Jared and I decided to sit this excursion out (praise sweet Jesus) and hang out on the boat. We were surrounded by staff who had nothing better to do with their time than to wait on us hand and foot and 85 year olds who's oxygen tanks couldnt be taken of the boat for security reasons. When we were hungry- we ate. Tired- we slept. Hot- went in the pool. Bored- played mini golf. I'm racking my brain trying to think of what else we did but- nope- nothing. That was pretty much the extent of it.

Around 5 we made it back to our room for our "dinner nap" and then we joined Jareds family and listened to them complain endlessly about how much their day sucked. 97 degrees, no shade, and lots of walking around to no where special. My insides were smiling from ear to ear!

We have a sea day tomorrow and then Egypt. I am so so so excited for this stop. Camel rides to the Pyramids with Jared and then we get to see the Sphinx up close and personal. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be lucky enough to see any of this stuff! This cruise is not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be despite our "plan" being thrown out the window on day 1. I'm a lucky girl and I know this. It's funny to me the things I miss about back home. Of course I miss my family, kids, animals, etc... But for some reason- Target is on the top of my list too. I really miss Target and all the luxuries it has to offer. Like for example- lip gloss and granola bars. Mmmm. You can't find those things here. I miss driving a car. My car. I miss Pinkberry and text messaging. I miss reading other peoples blogs and then calling Janelle to see if she's read them yet too. Simple things in my life- but those are the things I miss the most!!

P.S. Robbie- I hate to tell you this but- this trip has solidified my stand on never living in Europe. Never even owning a vacation home here. Sorry. God bless the USA!

P.P.S Keep the prayers for Sharalyn coming. PRAY HARDER! Maybe even fast.

That sounds like my idea of a cruise...doing nothing on a boat all day. And I miss Target even when I'm at home. I love Target. And I'm praying for Shar, but what's the deal? Hopefully no one lost a limb or an eye or anything...
