I am alive and well, I promise. I am back from 8 nights onboard my beloved Grandeur of the Seas with my crystal block (210 cruise points award presentation) in hand. I have more to say about it, which I'll do in a later post just as soon as I get things back in order. But for now I'll say this was the most mellow and low-key trip I've taken. I left with nothing specific planned - heck, I didn't even have notes for each port. I had been to all of the ports before if you couldn't guess.
The girls are home and feeling sassy with the autumn weather. They enjoyed laying in the leaves for quite a while last night, which is abnormal since they usually sleep like champs after returning from camp.
