Of course, I did gain some weight, but not too bad. I was very active and made mostly good choices. I drank too much alcohol and I ate more than I should have. I am still retaining water and I wonder if it wasn't from the medication I took for the motion sickness. I'm still adjusting to being back on land. I'm really sensitive to motion. I get car sick really easy. On the ship I did great except for the first day when I was adjusting,but I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't get sick once.
There were moments that were bitter sweet. The first night at dinner as I sat looking around the table and my cousin wasn't there. Thanksgiving dinner after the blessing and as we toasted to him. I shed a few tears, but very few. It was actually very nice and a bit of closure for us all. Life goes on. Although we miss him, we have to move on. Not forget, but move forward.
I've got tons of pictures and I'll share a few here.

|Yes, I did climb all those steps. Twice.|
|View from the glass elevators that enchanted my girls.|
|Oh yes. I did watch Thanksgiving day football on the big screen!|

|Not a bad pic for a 5 year old. Dress I bought in Cozumel, one size DID finally fit all.|
Adjusting to being home has been harder than on most trips. Mainly due to dizziness. I'm tired, but overall I'm doing well. It sure was nice to sign up for excursions without worrying whether I could do them. Times sure have changed. no way I could have done those steps 2 years ago.
I'm determined to get back to working out. I have a belt test this Saturday. I'm kind of freaking out about it. No I haven't shopped. No the tree isn't up. No I'm not ready for the holidays. BUT, I'm happy. And I have some really wonderful memories.
