I got home today and I'm so, so, so happy to be back with my babies and my husband. I was so homesick for them. I did have a wonderful time, which I'll tell you all about, but once I got over the guilt of being off having fun without them, I was missing them like crazy.
I'm still rocking like I am still on the boat. We had a very rocky cruise for most of the trip, but I don't get motion sickness at all apparently, so it was just a matter of trying not to fall into people most of the time.
I think maybe one day we might take a cruise as a family vacation, but other than that I'm not sure I'm cut out to be one of those people who cruise frequently. I enjoyed being pampered - and you do get very pampered - but there was just no way to escape and be alone very often. So. many. people. It's a bit overwhelming for an introvert like me. We met people who had been on dozens of cruises, though. One lady had her 5 year old grandson with her and it was his 13th cruise! It was her 28th on Carnival... and she'd been on almost every other cruise line multiple times also.
I'm interested to weigh in tomorrow. I ate very well, but we also walked and took the stairs a lot. My jeans today are literally falling off of me, but they were new and I hadn't worn them before the cruise, so it may just be that they aren't very true to size.
My house is a total disaster, there are about 4 loads of laundry to fold and many more to wash, and I'm really afraid to check the bank account, but it's good to be home. I have about 600 photos to go through, so be prepared!
