It has been about a month since we took our first ever cruise. Like I had said in my previous post...I was unsure of what to expect. I pictured being "stuck" on a boat with 3 seasick kids in a cramped closet of a room for 7 days. BOY WAS I WRONG. This cruise by far has been my most memorable, relaxing vacation out of any of them. It was much needed family time and my kids actually survived all 7 days without their iphones....it's a miracle !!
It was 7 days of not waking up at 6am, not rushing the kids to school, not having to meet the daily deadline, not answering emails, not feeling the daily guilt of being a working mom, not staying up until 1am to finish that final, not having to figure out if we had spaghetti "too many times" this week. Yes, it was 7 days of quality, never wanting this moment to end, letting them eat all the ice cream they want time. I am already looking forward to our next one in October. Until then, here is to hectic days and sleepless nights.
