Hey gang! I'm BACK!!! Yes, we just got home a few hours ago and I wanted to stop the unpacking to let you all know we are home, safe and sound. BEAUTIFUL TRIP with my lovely family. We are 100% exhausted, though. LOL! Yes, we had fun and played a LOT! The hardest part was putting my flip flop back in my suitcase and putting on heavy, warm sock and shoes. I really do think I belong on a tropical beach all year long. LOL! Now, if only my budget would cooperate.

Anyhoo, life is good, and I'm 100% okay. Met some fellow recovery folks the first day and there were meetings on the ship. I didn't attend, but it was nice there were a bunch of us NOT drinking. There were so many drunk people, though. Seriously, after witnessing some of them, I'm THRILLED I'm not in that group any longer. Life is good.

Welcome back Altoids!

We missed you! So happy to hear you had a great time.
I like the AA meetings on board, very cool.
As you said, just great to know there were other non-drinkers, and support for anyone who needed it while on board.

Come and live here, and you can wear flip-flops for at least 9 months of the year. I do.

Drunk people are so dull, they just start repeating the same things but louder each time. I'm glad I don't want that anymore!!
