Great! I just picked something like that up today.

I just saw all our passports so I know where they are.

Is it ok that I have 5 bazillion ziplock baggies full of stuff? I just want to be packed and done. I knew this would happen once I started packing. That's why I waited until now. I hate having to wait to pack the stuff that I'll need between now and when we leave on Thursday. At least whenever we go on another cruise I will know what I'm doing.

I saved $30 today on our car rental by modifying our reservation.

Well guys, we are packed and ready to go but I have to tell u a funny story. I am a travel agent so I am anal about travel. I dot every i and cross every t. usually i am overly prepared. Since my greatest fear is forgetting my passports, i wen to get them today and go ahead and place them in my purse so they are not forgotten. In doing that i took a second look at them to insure all was good with them......WRONG!! My 16 year old's passport has expired. It expired in April, 2013. I can not believe this!! I am so cautious and so anal about being sure everything is good to go....not sure how this slipped through the cracks. Thank Goodness that right underneath her passport was her birth certificate so we are good to go but that drives my CRAZY!!

Anyway...that's my crazy story for the day!!

Trust me you will almost always overpack for a cruise. The problem is all of the "what if" items. You may never use them, but want to have them in case you do. I know I'm overpacked, but I really do not want to do laundry this cruise. Normally I do, but since we don't see my stepson much I don't want to waste that time on laundry.

I have already packed our Passports, cruse documents & FEs.

So what do we all need to check in? I have the spiral little thingy I got a few weeks ago and our passports. Am I forgetting anything? I can't wait for it to be Saturday afternoon so I can just relax.

The signature form that you print off the website. Where you did the online check in at the end there is an agreement that you print and sign. There is one in the spiral book, but they always ask for the one off the Internet (even though I'm pretty sure it's the same thing).

I too will be glad when Saturday gets here! Actually Friday will be good, I'm so ready to get out of here as my allergies are kicking my butt right now and the farmers are getting in the fields making it even worse! I'm hoping the next 4 days of rain and the Benadryl I'm taking round the clock help!!!!!

Huge tornado just passed through my town. Some lives were lost. I am thankful that my family is safe and will really treasure our vacation time together even more now.

After 6 months of looking at them, I finally bought a go pro hero 3 camera today to use for diving and maybe paradise beach/aqua duck shots. On the one hand I am super excited to have a new gadget to play with but I am also kicking myself for wasting my last day off before the trip playing with it. I have spent all day trying to figure out all the features and played with it in the pool with the boys all evening. No packing done at all and now I am stressing reading the boards with everyone with their stuff together. Oh well guess all we really need is a credit card, passports, swimsuits, and a smile and we should be good to go.

Wow...how scary. I'm glad you and your family are safe. So sorry for the lives lost. We had some pretty nasty storms in our area tonight as well. Where are you located?

Saw reports of those midwest tornadoes this morning on TV. Glad to hear you're OK, but hate to hear that others lost their lives.
