    Sleeping in The City That Never Sleeps

    Well, I've returned from my cross country jaunt. I know most of you (GABE) have been sitting around twiddling your thumbs waiting for my next witty post. Well, no more waiting, here it is. I'll try to be brief.

    Day 1: Ate at Cheesecake Factory in Lincolnshire at 11:00 PM. Yummy.
    Day 2: Met Realtor and looked at 20 homes in 8 hours. Only 3 possibilities.
    Dinner with "Boss Man" at Wildwood. Yummy.
    Drove to O'Hare and stayed in a sweet suite.
    Day 3: Flew to NYC on the tiniest plane ever. I was so brave.
    Found Hotel. Hotel was waaaayyyy tiny. But cool.
    Took a bus tour starting at Midnight. Finished at 2:00 AM, and there was construction!
    Day 4: Walked through Central Park. Took a cab to the Pier, and boarded ship. Took nap.
    Day 5: Sea Day. Took nap. Ate food, not so yummy.
    Day 6: Arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I was up at 4:00 AM, and the port is beautiful!
    Found a coffee shop and drank hot chocolate and at cinnamon rolls.
    Realized Canadia has their own funny money.
    Watched local glass blowers. Cool.
    Went to Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and saw Titanic exhibit. Very interesting.
    Had Seafood Chowder, and fries with vinegar. Weird, but good.
    Boarded ship, took nap.
    Watched freaky family for entertainment.
    Day 7: Arrived in Bar Harbor, Maine. Again, up at 4:00 AM to watch the ship dock.
    Realized people talk funny in Maine. Bah Hahbah especially.
    Ate crab balls and lobster rolls for lunch. So Yummy!
    Took tour of Acadia National Park, very cool. Saw Martha Stewart's home.
    Boarded ship. Took nap.
    Watched funny comedian for entertainment.
    Day 8: Arrived in Boston, Massachusetts. Up at 7:00 AM.
    Had Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast. So Yummy!
    Followed the red Freedom Trail around to all the tourist sights.
    Had a good time talking in British accents.
    Ate chili in bread bowls, and Gelato.
    Boarded ship. Took nap.
    Sang Karaoke. Scary.
    Day 9: Arrived in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
    Very, very windy.
    Had to tender to shore in 12 foot waves.
    Rented car to explore island. Pretty cool island.
    Ate the best nachos in a sea side tavern.
    Realized a hurricane was headed our way.
    Boarded ship. No nap.
    Tried to eat dinner, but all fooded out.
    Was rocked to sleep by huge waves.
    Day 10: Arrived in NYC. Disembarked ship and headed for airport.
    Upgraded to first class, and hung out in first class lounge for 6 hours. Niiice.
    Flew home.
    Home sweet home.

    That's pretty much it. I'll post photos after I get them uploaded. I've been stuck behind mountains of laundry, so no time for fun, yet!

    So Fun!!! I am jealous. Can't wait to see pics. I bet Janette is glad you are back?

    I know Jeanette was glad we were coming home, but Mom was pretty glad to see us too. Kids are tiring. And of course Gretta got diarrhea while we were gone. Poor mom had to deal with that mess. It's gross enough when it's your own kid.

    I'm jealous of anyone who goes on vacation. I haven't been on a vacation since my honeymoon pretty much. But oddly, I'm always glad to get home, I can handle about 5 days of vacation and then I'm done.

    Welcome back!

    gotta love martha - she's weird - but good at what she does.
