I've got PCD!

Post Cruise Disorder!

I still feel like I'm still on the boat! I'm not sure if I still feel wobbly because of the sinus and ear infections I came home with or if I'm really just hoping to still be on the big gay boat! We had a fabulous time!

It was great being back on that boat. There's just something about it. It's hard to explain.

We hiked, til I thought my feet would fall off, while in foggy St John Canada. What we could see thru the fog was beautiful.

We visited the Citadel and beautiful Peggy's Cove while in Halifax Canada. This was one of my most favorite stops. Peggy's Cove was just breath taking! I could have sat on the rocks and watched the waves crash all day long.

Bar Harbor Maine was our next stop. What a beautiful place! We took a trolley up to Cadilac Mountain...what a view! And stopped at Thunder Hole on the way back down. BEAUTIFUL!

Next was Provincetown Mass. LOVED this place. It was hot as all get out but what a great town! Pride flags everywhere. It was so welcoming. We kayaked a bit here and just enjoyed the "family" atmosphere.

Our final stop was Newport RI. We weren't too impressed with this stop so we spent most of the time on the boat.

The food, the people, the sun, the water, the fresh air and fun were just what we needed. We were missing it even before we left the boat.

I took about 800 pictures and have loaded about 400 to flickr! I'm going to try and figure out how to do a slide show on here so check back later for that.


Now for the baby making news.

AF graced me with her (longest ever) presence the week of the cruise. Dang her! Our IUI should have been yesterday but, yet again, we had to sit this one out. I came home sick. :o( And have ended up on antibiotics for a super dooper sinus infection and double ear infection. Plus we didn't have swimmers yet. Basically, life just got in the way.

So.....we'll cross our fingers and hope to give it another shot next month.

So much for being 33 when our flower(s) arrive. That's ok. It'll happen when it's time.

Keep it up, ladies!

Hey ladies,

Glad to hear you guys had a great time - sorry to hear you are sick (I got sick on last years cruise, it sucked but was totally worth it) Sorry to hear life got in the way of your plans to ttc this month but glad to hear you are still moving forward - Us too... though verrrrry slowly. We are trying to narrow down the choices for swimmers - then we are gonna buy and store till next summer (and hopefully if all goes well) - we plan to go on that cruise (I hear it is gonna be Alaska) come home and try and make a baby! Well, that is the plan anyway, we'll see how close to it we actually stay.

Here is to keeping the faith! And lots of Good Luck to everyone all around.

Mich & Dawn

Ladies...love the slides and the stories. Sorry about this month, but Mama Nature has her ways I guess. And you're right, it will happen when it should, when all is ready..I'm sure of it. Yellow to you both!
