Oops - sorry about post above - not FO (don't know WHAT is wrong with me this morning!!)

Good morning everyone! It's a rainy, yucky day here in Virginia this morning. Have a KILLER sinus headache, but hopefully will disappear soon. I started on Weight Watchers today and will not STOP until the cruise. I am DETERMINED to get some weight off. I don't have a particular number in my head - to hit before the cruise, but my goal is to be comfortable getting my picture taken since memories are the most important souvenir of the cruise.

Told DH all about the "Fish Extenders" and DIS Tag - he looked at me cross-eyed and was like..."This is our first cruise - do you REALLY want to do this??" I told him I've been waiting 15 years to go on a cruise (and don't know WHEN the next one will be) and I'm doing this one up BIG, by-golly!!)". Then he said he wants to make one ourselves - anyone have a pattern?? Becca (8 year old DD) is REALLY excited about the DIS tag - getting stuff everyday is exciting to her!

Well - better do SOME semblance of work today - my boss just put in her 2 weeks notice and I need to suck her brain dry to get all her knowledge out before she leaves (very sad she's leaving as she is an AWESOME boss!!)

Kidani Village is AWESOME!!! If I get to log on later, I'll try to post pics, but for now, I have to think about getting moving. We are headed to TL today!

Welcome to any new cruisers out there!!
Can't wait to see pictures of Kidani Village!! But have fun and stay cool down in the hot Florida sun. Ride Soarin' for me (my favorite at Epcot)

Good morning everyone. We had a really long weekend, so I am taking the day off today.

Thanks for the breadcrumbs Jeff. Did I miss anything over the last 3 days?

Actually you were the first one on after me, so you beat Cass.

You can have a few of my though if you want. My DW will just put them out at the rummage sale anyways. (kinda like the kids throwing out the AT&T rollover minutes)

Just remember, you don't need a FE in order to play the Dis Tag game

LOL about the Rollover AT&T minutes - those are brilliant commercials!

I am supposed to be working now, but I am in the process of designing my "fish extender". There are some really cute ones online on ebay but DH wants to make it ourselves - so we can personalize it more. Now, my sewing skills aren't fantastic, but I figure I can do a decent job on it. Now, I just need a pattern... (since I am not creative enough to go it alone!)

Thanks for the link, Cass!! I will definitely use it.

We want to make the most out of our cruising experience, so we are going all out on the "extra" stuff. Just make each thing a little more special!

Congrats on passing the exam!! I keep wanting to take the CPA exam (for accountants) and I STINK at test taking. Don't need it for my career, but would be nice to have those 3 letters after my name!

I think Angie should get a few googley's for getting the last post on the thread. Anyone else agree?
Looks like I missed this discussion.
