One year older and wiser too...

Happy Birthday to YOU! This morning as our alarm went off (at 9:00 am) I was giddy with excitement. It's my birthday and Jared has promised me that we can celebrate however I want to. Remember that excursion we had planned? Cancel that. After breakfast it was off to the spa for massages and facials (for some reason- Jared got pampered too even though it wasn't his birthday). Next up, back to the buffet for some "snacks" which really just means desserts. When we went back to our room, I was surprised to see that Jared had taken the initiative (praise sweet Jesus above it's about time!) and had Royal Caribbean Happy Birthday signs and decor all over the place. It's hard to surprise me usually, but somehow he did it! And I was sooo thankful. I had been worried that it wasn't going to feel like much of a birthday but hey- so far- so good. We did some packing (which means we are close to going home! yeah!) and headed off the ship for some local pizza and gelato. As we walked hand in swollen hand (it's humid here) I could not be happier. Granted, I was scared of the Italian men trying to get us to buy everything from porn to lap tops, I gave it a go and was glad I did.

As we were walking back on the boat, we saw Jareds family heading to their excursion and I am so glad we're not going. It's hot and humid and I just really didnt want to go. Instead I think we'll spend some time at the pool and then take a nap before dinner. How nice.

I am so over this cruise. I want to go home to my kiddos and my bed. My washer and dryer. My computer. My Hummer. My text messages. My Target. My world. It's hard to complain about this cruise without sounding ungrateful, but I just really really love my life back home.

Almost home Suey. I promise I wont ask you to watch Lennix anymore for the rest of the summer! (yea right!) I miss you guys.
