Yes. I was vry happy that our friendship has survived all these years and we had such a good time together. She has thanked me over and over for bringing her along and even has sent me texts since we've been home thanking me again.

We did have a great time. I wish it didn't have to end...and we really want to try and do this yearly or at least every 2 years. It was just really nice to get away.

Hi Kathy! We sure did have some fun. We are not a bunch of wild girls, but we have fun in our own geeky way.

You made it! You are so good too. I am still not caught up on your TR since I got back. Where does the time go each day. I already put an hour of work in and it doesn't seem like I got much done. And I need to start working on the FE's for my next cruise.

It was really last minute. It was booked about 6 weeks out. I had "thought" we would most likely be taking a New England cruise on the "other" line. But when that didn't come through, this was such a great opprotunity to see the Magic and a new port too. I would normally never even consider Galveston. I now can say the port was nice (not Port Canaveral nice, but still nice) and Texas was very friendly and happy to have Disney.

Actually, someone on the November ADR cancellation thread was letting 3 BOG ADRs go and I was camped out trying to get one. No.... no..... stop laughing. I don't want or need another one. But I have a friend going that week who got the word ADRs started at noon that day and didn't get my email about he 7 AM switch until it was too late. I wanted to get one then release it to her, but failed miserably. What a waste of a perfectly good hour!

But the silver lining?..............

Jen started her trip report!

This post will not have pictures…but I promise there will be MANY coming up soon.

The week prior to sailing, Lisa and I started phoning each other a bit more. She was very nervous and not sure what to pack. I went over some of the list of things she should have and things I was bringing that she wouldn’t need to have, like a blow dryer and bonine, etc.

Sept 20 (Thursday) rolls around. The night before our departure day.…..It was a busy one for me. I had to be sure I had things packed for Claire. She was going to be going back and forth between her Grandmas’s, so I had to have 2 suitcases packed for her. 1 Grandma lives right next door, so if anything was forgotten, she could run over and get it (and evidently that means toys…as many seemed to make their way over to MIL’s while I was gone). My Mom doesn’t live too far away and it’s an easy stop here to pick up anything if it was forgotten as well.
After school we took everything over to MIL’s house and gave her Claire’s planning itinerary. Yes, I made one for Claire’s grandmas and a friend who would be picking up Claire a couple of the days after school. I wanted to try and make it go smoothly and to give everyone each other’s phone numbers, etc.
It was also Family Fun night at Claire’s school. I made an early dinner, since Claire rarely eats at events like this, and I wanted to be sure she got something in her stomach that wasn’t junk, and then we headed off for a night of fun activities at the school.
They had a DJ and all the kids had such a great time. Normally I would take pictures, but with all the rushing and getting ready, I didn’t even think about bringing a camera this night.
Towards the end of the night, Lisa called one last time. She was on her way to Meijer and picking up the last things she needed. We chatted a bit and I told her my goal would be to be at her house around 5:30 AM. YIKES…that sounded so early! I was going to get up at 4:30, but she was getting up at 3:30. She wanted to get up and have her body adjust to the early hour.
The dance ended and Claire and I headed off to my Moms. Claire was dropped off and we gave big hugs and kisses, but she was practically kicking me out the door. Her cousin was going to be arriving soon to spend the night as well, (neither had school on Friday and my Mom took the day off of work to keep them both) and she had no interest in me hanging around. PLUS, my Mom had made a treasure hunt, so as soon as Cousin Alexis (Who will be sailing with us in Nov.) arrived, they could get started on that fun.

I went home, finished packing the last minute things items and loaded suitcases in the car.
Skip was in the house…and of course bothering me. He thinks it’s funny to ask many questions while I am busy. He did, however give me some cash to take. He gave me his wallet and told me to take what I needed…Um…not a wise thing to do. I told him to give me what he wanted to give me. I didn’t want to hear later that I took too much. He gave me $200. I was good with that.
Then he continued to tell me to take more because we would be “laying” in the bars all the time. That is so not us. And he knows it, but it was funny. I did end up taking $20 more just to make him happy.

How exciting. You will have a ball. Go in making sure you all know that it's OK to seperate and do things on your own. I know for some that can cause issues...but we went in knowing that we may want to do things the other didn't and were Ok to do stuff on our own too.
