Back from Paradise... *sigh*

Things I learned from vacation:
1. You probably won't need half of what you pack.
2. You can't do everything you want to do, so don't stress yourself out trying.
3. It really is a small world.
4. Eating everything put in front you is a bad idea.
5. Drinking everything put in front of you is also a bad idea.
6. It's difficult to put on a damp bathing suit in a very small bathroom.
7. One application of sunblock is not enough for a day in the Bahamas.
8. It will be over far too quickly.
9. You should always tell other people that you are returning a day after you actually return.
10. It will take approximately the same amount of time to unpack as the vacation lasted.

We had an amazing time on the Disney Wonder. We've already calculated how much it would cost for us to actually live on the ship. ($373,869.60 annually - but hey, that includes food, nightly entertainment, a full time maid, room service, personal waitstaff and gourmet chefs for a family of 5!) We think we can probably get a 10% discount, though. ;)

I've posted a recap of Day 1 of the trip including a motherload of pictures over here: Traveling Spaz

So check it out!

I'm going to go try to get my life back together again. :) Oh wait, that implies it was together in the first place.

Hey, girl! So glad you're back -- it sounds like you had a good time. Seriously, only 380-some thousand to live on the Disney cruise. Dude -- that's not too bad for having maid service and all meals prepared for you. I might have to think about a career switch. ;) (Heading over to check your pics out now!)

if they have wi-fi and that's a full-time babysitter/school you're set! work from the ship.

Oh I just visited your travel blog... It sounds and looks divine. I think I might have to hate you ... just for a little while, k?
