Last Thursday was my 37th birthday (Sherri, thanks for b-day wishes) and I started off the day sweating at 5 am to my tunes on the Elliptical and Treadmill at the Y and ended the day by blowing out the candles on diet orange cake on the Carnival Ship Sensation heading out on yet another 3 night cruise with family...compliments of my father. This cruise left out of Port Canaveral and sailed to Nassau, just like we had done twice before (out of Jacksonville) but this time there was a water park. We all had a good time. I got up early on Friday and used the ship's gym but didn't on Saturday. Probably should've though...because that diet orange cake wasn't the first dessert that I had eaten that night and I tried a fare share of anything sweet offered EVERY other meal. But I did run up and down the steps for the water slides and played a round of mini golf so it wasn't like I just sat on my bum the entire trip soaking up the sun.
I was leading in mini golf until the last several holes and then I moved to dead last! Craziness I tell you. We didn't go into Nassau, and had our run of the ship while everyone else was off on excursions.

Read The #1 Ladies Detective Agency...been hearing about it for years by several friends and I agree with them that it is a lovely read. Have any of you seen the tv show that is based on it? It's on cable and Susan has t-vo'd it so maybe I'll jog over to her house tonight to check it out.
