    Default Saysusie Still On Vacation!

    Hello Family
    I posted this under "Happy birthday Saysusie", but I am also posting it here so that everyone could get an update on my trip. As some of you know, my hubby took me on a cruise for my birthday and we left on the 20th of October, so I was unable to respond to your birthday posts until now. We will return on 11/5, but today, I finally got into the Internet Cafe on the ship and was able to come here to check on you ..my family.
    The trip has been quite eventful so far, due to the hurricane! We made it safely to Cozumel & Ocho Rios, but then we had to be re-routed from Belize to the Grand Cayman's and then from the Grand Cayman's to Grand Turk! This is such a beautiful island with crystal clear, warm water. We are going to be here for six hours and then head back to Miami. This will give us two full days at sea and I will, once again, be unable to get online.
    I do miss you all, but I am soooooooo loving this vacation. As most of you know, I am a vocalist and my genre is primarily Smooth Jazz. This cruise is a jazz cruise and the artists who perform every night have been awesome (George Duke, Nick Corleon, Patti Austin, Norman Brown, Chante Moore, Eric Benet, George Hammond, and more..). So, being a jazz artist myself, this has been like a slice of heaven every night . I got to jam with one of the bands during the midnight jam session...what a thrill that was for me!
    Well, I hope that you are all doing OK..I will check in on the 5th (or before if I can get on the internet).

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    No one deserves it more!!! My cruise was the best vacation ever! The only time I came back rested. Enjoy yourself and remember that we love you!

    WOW!!! Susie I am so jealeous. I love jazz and it sounds like you've discovered the best thing in the world. A seventh heaven for sure. You are so lucky to have gotten the chance to jam. My singing has been limited to the church choir but I always wanted to sing like you. Have fun! Enjoy it.

    Well, we are finally home. After arriving back in Miami, hubby decided to stay on there and extend our vacation for another 3 days. Again..beautiful weather, a beautiful city (great food and dancing!). I think that these past 15 days have been the best days in my life! I was so thrilled and so relaxed that it did not bother me that our plane had a flat tire and we had to sit on the tarmac for 3 hours, had to race like horses to make our connecting flight and then it had engine trouble, which meant sitting on the tarmac for another 3 1/2 hours (lol). I DID NOT care...I watched the video that we had taken on the cruise, I listened to the CDs we had purchased from the artists who performed, I went through the pictures we had taken (organizing them),and I practiced my "scatting" techniques that I learned at one of the workshops on the cruise. I also, eventually, fell fast asleep .
    Right now, I am a very happy camper! I am very tired and will take 2-3 days of rest to ensure that I do not have a flare up (as I was not 100% when we left for this vacation). But, emotionally...I am ecstatic!
    Thank you all for you responses..I am glad to be back, I missed you all!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste
