today the young ensign, who happens to be my youngest, takes off for his first cruise. he's quite excited and proud. we are happy for him and worried. i don't know how my mother went through this with 4 of us. 2 for me have been hard. this caps off the week from hell. that's ok...good to get all the crap done at once.
just thought i'd take a moment to bit**. thanks :-)
