Rollercoaster ride to the sun

We are in the sunny state of Florida! We left Chicago and snow behind yesterday and arrived to 82 degrees, sunny and warm. It was a contrast and it took a few minutes to let it all soak in. My winter jacket, hat and gloves are now an extra carry on!

Today we will board our ship and head west. Ironically, there is a tropical depression now forming in the Atlantic and we may meet it later in the week on our way back! There is never a dull moment.

We are leaving the craziness of work behind us. Last week, the two of us had a roller coaster of a week with many ups and down. The BF's company is laying people off, the next day he got a promotion. For me I was to meet with a senior management member regarding my position now that I have my MBA but he could not make it. So instead I met with the president and there is a bright future for me. So we'll see how this all plays out.

Anyway, must pack darlin' heading to port shortly....Do you think the crew will be offended if we insist on seeing Captain Stuben?

Hope you're having fun on your cruise!! Is it a booze cruise? Ha. ;)

I hope the storms don't affect you guys. I don't think I could ever do a cruise. I don't like water or boats and I think I'd be really bothered being somewhere where I wouldn't be able to escape. (Unless I jumped off the boat, and then there's my whole issue with water!) But I'm sure you guys are going to dock at a lot of cool places and it should be pretty. Hope you're taking pictures!

And congratulations on the job stuff -- it sounds like things are going to be improving now that you're all MBA'd and stuff. :)
