Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

I was reminded to get back to cruise planning - Happy Goofy had completed her FE gifts and they will be coming to me to distribute. Apparently she thought we had dwelled on her passing long enough, and sent me a "message" to get on with Living, already.

Another busy day planned. I freecycled all the exercise equipment in the basement and it was all taken. Going out the door TOday! Glad to see the end of it. Wish I had freecycled my stove too - apparently when HD takes them away, they junk them instead of donating them.

What's everyone doing for excursions? I haven't even thought about it!

Happy Day, all!

I am so sorry to hear this news. We were looking forward to meeting her at Cove Cafe. Please let her family know we are thinking of them.

Good morning all. Sorry I haven't been that active these past few weeks. I've been picking up extra days at work to help put away money for the cruise and then this past week DS got sick. He had a fever of 102.5 Tues and Wednesday. At least the Dr. said it wasn't RSV or the flu. His fever is all gone now but he's still so stuffy. I feel so bad for him because since he's only 5 months old we can't give him any medicine really. Plus the poor kid is teething like crazy. Lot's of sleepless nights this past week for me.

It's finally going to be warm here this weekend! Hopefully we are done with snow. I've had enough and just want all the kids in all the schools to get over all this crud.

I'll be sending out an FE update this morning so check your email. Some things have been rearranged.

Do you know if John will still be cruising? I'm sure everyone on the FE would like to do something nice for him if he is. Glad to hear you're already having a productive weekend... could you send some of it my way? I feel like I get nothing done!

We are pretty layed back. Our main theme is enjoying the ship, laying around basically relaxing.As a super busy working mum Heather likes to spent as much time as possible playing with Jackson. We will be going on a tour in Cartagena, Heather and Jackson will go to Paradise on PV and we will all go take a taxi to Billigans next to "downtown" in Cabo for lunch and sand time. I will stay on board for PV and enjoy quiet time. We are really looking forward to sea days of just getting up around 9, laying around the pool, napping in the afternoon and then a delightful dinner. We usually have to wait up for Jackson to finally be ready to leave "his club". Really boring people taking advantage to a quiet time after very busy schedules.

Sorry to hear your DS was sick too. I always feel so bad for the kids when they're sick... almost as bad as feel for me having to take care of them when they're extra cranky.

I am very sorry to hear about Happy Goofy. If her partner is cruising, I'd like to add a card & condolences with our FE gifts. Thanks, Linda Babe, for the important information.

We are sad to hear about Charlotte. They were our Secret Mickey on the May Hawaiian cruise. We had great times with her and John.

Wish I had known Charlotte, she sounds like a wonderful lady.

We used to bring a bunch of singles, but we stopped once we learned we chould just charge it to the room. I think my son was 9 when he learned how to tip and sign for room service!

We're back from our week on the Fantasy and a few days in Orlando. Trying to catch up with mail, laundry and, of course, DIS.

The Fantasy is a beautiful ship but I think our hearts belong to the DCL classic ships. As we get older, we don't need all the bells and whistles--like the aqua duck--that the large ships have. Both the Dream and the Fantasy felt really crowded to us. The adult areas on the Fantasy are a vast improvement over the Dream's so it was a really relaxing week with some unexpected twists (long story). It was chilly when we got back to AKV Kidani so we did lots of fun non-park stuff.

FYI, we did a VGT for the first time on the Fantasy cruise and loved the cabin and location we got. It was a 5A, deck 10 forward. Gives me hope that we'll get something great for our VGT on the WBPC.

On a side note, Neil Patrick Harris was on our cruise with his partner, twins and parents. We ran into him a number of times; he was in one of the big suites two floors above us so he was in our muster group; and we would see him on the stairs and the hallways. I never got up the nerve to talk to him but I heard him kidding his parents and his partner talking to the kids to about whining (wish the other 2000 parents had done the same...).

Now, on to the WBPC in less than two months...
