It's annoying when people do that, but I have no problem taking their clothes and putting them on the washer while I wash mine. I'm going to try to keep the washing to a minimum and only if we run out of clothes.



The woollite is a good idea for the small things. I also way overpack underwear, I hate being uncomfortable!

Also, my TA sent me an email. He received my cruise docs and is forwarding them on to me along with a $50 gift card!
We always used to pay $2 per load of washing and $1 per cycle in the dryer, but when we were on the Wonder for our Hawaii cruise, both the washers and the dryers were $1. This just gets added to your stateroom account.

The gift card is nice. That should cover a few Drinks of the Day.

The 7 night and shorter cruises seem to be a little less formal than the longer 14 or 15 night cruises so you'll be fine. You'll see a full range of dresses during the night from casual to formal.
From our cruise documents it looks like we could possibly do four suitcases each, but we won't need THAT much and I doubt even a CL room doesn't have that much storage.

I think this is what I will do. Time is running out!

As I said, hopefully I can get away without doing laundry!

Tomorrow I can officially start packing! Right now my suitcases are being held at Bell Services at the GCH. In a couple hours our concert band plays at DCA. Right now we are killing time at the security check point because we arrived an hour early. After our performance we'll rum around the parks a bit and then go home. Once I get this weekend's clothes out of the suitcase, I'll start packing for the cruise!

Great idea!

I know that Alison already has 4 or 5 ready. If I were in your shoes, Alison, I would start printing them out and laminating the ones that you already have. That way, if you run out of time, you already have these to go. If you get time to add more, you can.

It went really well. There was a lot of sitting around, but when it came down, we played very well. I should post our picture somewhere.

Actually I don't have any "ready" I've typed in one complete recipe and two half recipes. Fran located one online so I can copy and paste, but they will still need to be formatted. What I'm thinking is that I will format them four to a page and print them on a card stock. Now that the Disney performance is over, and I don't have to worry about Thanksgiving dinner, I can focus a little more on packing and my FEE.

OK, it's time for an interactive part of the TR. It's time that I have started on packing for the cruise. While I looked into having some beautiful gown made like Corinna does, in reality, I have a lot of nice dresses that I've only worn once or not at all. So I've narrowed it down to three. My question is which do you think I should wear for Formal night? Should I wear the second choice for Semi-Formal night?

Fran has given her opinion, and she'll be wearing her tux on formal night, possibly a black tux shirt with a white dinner jacket for semi formal night.

The lighting is a little off here, but this dress is black.



This dress is a dark purple



This one is black as well and the top is covered in sequins and beads.



Let me know which ones you think I should pick!

You'll have to wait until the TR to find out!

On other news, I did online check in yesterday, and we printed and signed our documents, so that's taken care of. I also started picking out my daily clothes for the ship.

I'm almost done formatting my recipe cards, but not really sure how I can laminate them. I took pictures of my FE gifts, but I'm going to wait until they're delivered before I post them in case anyone on the cruise is lurking.
