Welcome Home!   ;D

I'm glad to hear that things went well (except for the one who was sent home). 

I lived on a ship once for a week way back in the 1970's in Mystic, Connecticut with the Girl Scouts.  Our sleeping quarters were so close together - I think there were three of us that slept with our bunks which seemed like inches apart one on top of the other.  Those ships don't have a lot of room.

I bet you are glad to sleep in your own bed with all the conveniences of going to  the refrigerator whenever you want, sit in the recliner with your feet up, lay on the couch, etc.  Ahhhhh, there's no place like home!   :)

Too bad you don't have a couple more days to recoup before work starts again.   :(

What kind of food did you eat while on the boat?

Scottie,
Welcome Home!  :D

 We missed you, and it sounds as if your trip went fairly smoothly. (except for Wed.)  :P
I'm sure the kids had fun and will look forward to your next adventure.

Glad you're back!   Take care and rest up a bit.

Welcome Home Scottie...hope you were able to rest today! I agree with Bucky..too bad you didn't have another day or two to really get your rest in and get settled back into your life without worrying about gong back to work right away!

So glad to hear that overall the trip was a success...any good pics this year??

Hi  :)

Well I certainly wished I hadn't gone back to work today! After a reasonably pleasant week last week the kids were horrible today - really obnoxious.

The food on the boat was a mix. We went out one night to Frankie and Benny's. We had chicken burgers and salad. We had mince and dumplings (more like your biscuits) We had a pasta bake. There was pizza and spaghetti bolognaise.  There was plenty to eat! I tried to be sensible!

I still feel like I could sleep for a week but it's not going to happen!

Take care - Scottie  :)

Scottie,

After the kids having fun last week, they really didn't need to "make up" for that today, did they?  :P

I wish you some peace and rest sometime soon!

after giving you grief on your return to the classroom, i suggest one day docked from the next trip you take.
if this isnt a consideration this time round warn them the next time they go away that its all 'conditional' as thats what life is, conditional on being a good citizen, a good friend, neighbour and worker and such.
civics thrown in for good measure.
