52 Weeks of Blessings- weeks 45- internet price, 46-knowledge and 47-free babysitting

Since I was away and could not afford to pay for the net on the ship {the net prices were: $100 for 250 minutes, $50 for 100 minutes or $0.75 a minute -pay as you surf!}  I missed two weeks of blessing posts!  
Blessing # 45 will be the wonderful price I pay for internet since anything cheaper than the ship is a blessing!  I shall never complain about my phone/internet/cable bill again!
Here were are in our motel room in Tampa Florida .... notice the open Mac?  Yeah, free with the room!  {Unlike the ship ... grrrrrr probably my biggest complaint of the trip!}
Blessing#46  is knowledge gained by visiting these places:
Belize
Guatemala
Mexico
{more to come in the following days}
Blessing #47 is That my parents and my children survived their 10 days together.  I have a sneaking suspicion that they even enjoyed it!  Thank you SO much Mom & Dad for willingly watching our brood.  Thank you to my in-laws for taking us on this wonderful vacation!

How funny, your complaint IS my blessing. If not for internet on the ship, I would have had to wait for LETTERS from my Navy husband. And trust me, he's not one for letters! But I have to agree, that's a pretty high price to pay for it! At least the Navy provides it for free!

I'm enjoying your cruise pics/story. We've never even tried to get online on the ships. I really just like pretending that the outside world isn't even there when I am on the ship. As long as I know my kids are okay and safe :)!! Keep posting...I'm reading! It looks like you had a wonderful trip!
