I’m Back!

Actually I have been back since late on Monday, but I am still trying to get caught up on my sleep and everything I missed.

The cruise was…well, let’s say illuminating? In that I have discovered that I am NOT a cruise type person. I am a beach/pool type person and unfortunately the weather was not overly cooperative. The first full day was not too bad…did get a couple of hours of pool time and we took an excursion to an island off the Bahamas…unfortunately there was a brisk wind and TONS of people so not exactly relaxing. The next day was overcast so instead of hitting an island and beach we were stuck on the ship all day. Then that night on the way home we hit some really rough seas and I spent the entire night on the floor of the bathroom (I brought pillows in with me so that I could try to get some rest). I usually do not get seasick so this really caught me by surprise. And was one of the worst nights I have ever spent. I finally fell asleep around 4:30 am only to have to get up at 6am to be off the ship by 7:00 am.

I know, I know. I am whining about being on a cruise. I found that for me, there is just not enough that I enjoy if you take away the pool and too much depends on the weather (not to mention the potential for possible seasickness!) And I also really did not like being one of thousands on board. Too much herding involved and not enough time to really explore.

Ah well. Live and learn. Needless to say it is good to be back.

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Aw, I’m sorry to hear that. It is no fun to have the opportunity for a nice vacation and have it go poorly.

    Glad you are back!

  2. So, it was kind of a public school-y approach to a vacation? I’m referring to the “herding”.

    I’m sorry you got seasick. That must’ve been awful.

  3. I’m sorry the trip was a disappointment. :-( Welcome back!

  4. We did a long-weekend cruise to Mexico years ago. Most definitely decided we were not cruising kind of people, so I get it. You’re not complaining, really; you just had a chance to try on one style of vacation and decided it didn’t fit!
