    Not So Random Thoughts!

      Excited about the hubster and I taking a road trip soon! The planning/researching has been so exciting to me. Craving a Big-Mac from McDonalds. #dontjudgeme Needing to not stress about the current class that I’m taking. Thankful for seeing another day so I can be thankful for all that I have. Wanting to stop feeling so fatigued. Even with the medication I’m on for my thyroid issue, the fatigue is real. Loving where I’m at with my life at the moment. I am finding a deeper profound for life and happiness. My psychology courses have totally helped me in many ways. Missing my mom every.single.day. Her being gone still hits me like a ton of bricks.…

    Our 2014 Cruise

    Cruising is an amazing way to just kick back, relax and not have to worry about too much. I start planning at least a year in advance, which gives me time to pay off the cruise, research excursions, the ports and buy booze. For this cruise, it was the hubsters first and my second. I chose not to do any excursions because I wanted him to get a feel of what a cruise would be like. The only negative, was our stop in Nassau. A lot had changed since the first time I’d visited, and knowing this, I’d book an excursion should we ever visit Nassau again. Overall, I’d like to…

    I’m Excited to Go….Glamping!!

    I haven’t gone camping in years. When I used to go, it was here; Turner Falls. I wish I still had pictures to show the climb after reaching the top of the water fall because the view is breath taking.  During those camping trips, I slept in a tent. However, as I’ve gotten older and watching way too many scary movies, tents were off limits if I ever went camping again. That was until I learned about Glamping.  A nice way to compromise between a cabin and tent. Follow and Share:

    Getting Older

      I’m currently taking a psychology class as part of my overall classes in college. It’s been pretty intense with regard as to how I see myself and life in general. Last week, I had to ask five people questions and one of them was: “What makes you happy?”. I’ve been thinking long and hard about what my answer(s) would be. I also realized that I had to be brutally honest with myself about those answers. This year I will be forty-eight years old; 4-8. Two years shy of fifty (50). Hell I didn’t think I’d make it pass my teens with all that I was going through and yet…

    Carnival Triumph Cruise (2016)

    Time seemed to have ended way too soon, although I think a 5 day cruise is our limit at the moment. We had an amazing time and while there were a few hiccups (that’s life for ya) I would definitely sail on Carnival and Triumph again. The only disappointing issue in Cozumel was not having the clear water at the island but that’s the chance you take, not only when traveling during hurricane season but mother nature can and does have a mind of her own. There are plenty of things I would have done differently (like take pictures and videos the right way – LOL) which I will post…

    My 1st Cruise

    I will be adding “My 2nd Cruise” with the (new) hubster at some point!! I’m really hoping we (start to) travel more, whether state side or abroad. I look back at all the traveling I’ve done and can kick myself for never really stopping to take in the sights/sites. But anywho… I’m not exactly sure how I was initially introduced to cruising but whatever the case may be, it has become something that I enjoy. My first cruise was with my (late)husband. We drove from Oklahoma to Florida a few days in advance because we decided to make this an all in one trip. We stopped to see my family…

    Vacation

      The hubster and I will be going on vacation soon and I cannot wait to travel with him. It’s been a bumpy road for us as we haven’t been on the same page in a long time. I’ve been holding onto a lot of anger and hurt and not only has it been detrimental to our marriage but my health (in all areas) as well. I will speak (write) on this is another blog post. This post is about our vacation… We are booked on a cruise (his 2nd and my 3rd cruise) and we’ll be travelling to Cozumel and Yucatan (Progresso).  Unlike our last cruise, I booked excursions for…

    *Singing* I’m So Excited…

    Next month the hubster and I will be taking a cruise to the Bahamas. A much needed break for us both. I’m SUPER excited about it but the hubster doesn’t share the same enthusiasm as I do. I guess it’s like me not getting as excited as he is about his game – Destiny, coming out…LOL! Oooh the joys of being married, huh? *giggles* Our vacation begins in… I get to mark this off our bucket list as a couple. Woot! Woot! Follow and Share:
