I know!

For a trip that has been booked for a year and a half I'm suddenly panicking over all there is to do before we leave! And yet, it's not like I can do things like mow the lawn or drop the dog off with the sitter before the last minute! All I can say is, I'm looking forward to relaxing on this cruise!

I am too, but I think we are on opposite ends of the rainbow. I am worried that the surf in Cocoa Beach will not be high enough for fun on Friday and Saturday. The latest report is that we will get 6ft (2M) waves on Saturday for the dawn patrol. I was really hoping for something more spectacular.

Last time we were in Hawaii, I went body surfing in 18 - 24ft swells in Waimea Bay. That was fun, but we will make the best of what nature gives us on Cocoa Beach before the cruise.

As Christi said, George Town will be a flippin' mess with five ships tendered off the port and people fighting for transit. If we decide to attempt to fight that madness, perhaps we may jump in with you. You need to work over Christi at the RATP on Friday.

Will do!! I emailed Boatswain today to ask about the possibility of getting a refund if I pre purchase our tickets (20% discount), if we can't tender or don't make it to GC. I also asked them about their own transportation. They have a statement about free transportation from the pier. I'll let you know what I find out.

Music to our ears......ahhhhh......there was only one other time I was on a DCL cruise and we were the only ship in a port. That was in 2006 for the double dip Costa Maya cruises. We were the only ship in Costa Maya. We had the place to ourselves and it was very comforting knowing that the majority of the other people around you were from the Magic.

That's what Target is for!

Today, no one has noted that we board in 4days.

I'm coming late to the party today because in addition to my mani-pedi, and dropping DD off/picking up at a softball clinic, I had to fit in a Doctor's appt. for DS, whose ear is very painful. So, it seems that when your eardrum bursts, that as the fluid rushes out of your ear, it can cause swimmers ear. The dr. has given him ear drops, but she is concerned that it is so swollen, and there is so much crude (her words) in this ear, that if it is not feeling better by Thursday, we will have to take him to an ENT. Great, just what you want to do the day before vacation, beg an ENT to fit you in to clean out an ear! Well, hopefully the drops will manage to squeeze in between the "crude" and work some MAGIC.

In the Caymen's (one week from today!) we will be enjoying the Catamaran Snorkel and Sail/Stingrays.

Hey gang: I can't wait till we get on that magical ship (no pun intended, lol). I, too, am getting ready for this trip; today, I got my hair cut, picked up some reading materials, some toliet trees, and went to the bank. I was a little worried about my budget but I think I'll be A-OK. I switched a shore excursion in Cozumel. I was gonna do the dune buggy but I have no clue how to drive a stick shift and quite honestly, I don't want to invest in something that I'll have a hard time doing. Plus, I wanna relax on this vacay with limited movement, so I booked the Conzumel Beach Break. A Disney reservationsit was so nice and patient and helped me pick this excursion by sharing her own wonderful experiences.

Tomorrow, go to bank for gift cards and start packing.

And stsomewhere, I have a dog who enjoys getting underwear. My friend, you are not alone in that torture.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday!! Mickey, here I come! God bless and happy Mickey
