My brain needs dessert + Post-A-Quote Challenge

I’m looking out at the water.

We are eating dinner at the back of the boat.

I’m looking out at the water.

The water foams and froths, and in our wake nothing’s afloat.

I’m looking out at the water,

but I am alert. Any minute now they will serve dessert.

Where do cravings begin? I like to blame my brain for anything and everything (if I run into a wall, for example) so I can only assume our cravings start in our brain. Ever since Little Man has joined the family I have craved desserts almost every single day. At first my husband indulged me and helped me make up mediocre reasons to celebrate via dessert (hooray! I did laundry!) but now we are only supposed to have dessert on days we work out. I agree with the principal of the matter, but it’s hard sometimes. (I don’t like to keep Oreos in the house because it’s TOO hard).  

Well let’s just say we ate a lot of dessert on the cruise, and we did not work out once. And we only took the stairs half of the time. (Our first cruise we had a rule that said “stairs only and always” but now we use the baby as an excuse. He’s HEAVY!)

Well the cruise was a week ago and it’s fading in memory but I am pretty sure it was great. We only had two small hiccups:

1. I forgot to pack socks. ‘Nuff said.

2. Little Man had an extreme difficulty falling asleep the last night, I guess he was too sad about leaving. Normally we let him cry it out, however we try to be respectful of neighbors in close proximity. We tried walking, rocking, singing, threatening, cuddling, etc. He finally fell asleep when I was in the most awkward position (duh!) and woke up when I tried to shift ninja style. (Ninja FAIL). That night was rough because he slept in our bed, and I could NOT get comfortable. I love the little guy, but he’s not as cuddly as my One and Only and he does not tolerate my tossing and turning either.

So in summary: We went to Alaska and it was BEAUTIFUL. Y’all should check it out. My favorite excursion was probably the Lumberjack show in Ketchikan. We have a post card signed from the winners of the contest. Mr. Little John and Mr. Jamie John. Lumberjacks are incredible. (I won’t say “sexy” because I’m a suburb girl with suburb tastes, not a wildling from beyond the wall. )
