I'm so excited for this cruise!! My parents (aged 64 and 61 at time of cruising) NEVER travel (they enjoy it - they just don't put forth the effort to plan trips) and have never taken a cruise. We convinced them to go with us and I'm bouncing up and down because I know they are going to have the time of their lives!

If possible, my husband and I would love to participate in the Fish Exchange! How do I sign up? Our stateroom is currently 9506. We downgraded to an Oceanview this time until we know what the financial situation will look like next year. If things go well, we'll upgrade to our usual mid-ship balcony room.

I forgot to request getting in on FE. So please include us. We've done it in the past and it was fun We're in 7570
BTW~ If anyone is interested in penpals (emails, fb, txting) for the kids to get to know each other, i'd be in on that also. Sometimes it's hard for the children to jump into friends onboard (but they eventually do) but if they start penpaling prior to sailing, they already have friends and are excited to meet. Just a suggestion. Have a fantastic weekend everyone, TGIF!!
Linda 46 (me)
Erik 44 (dh)
Gianna 13 (dd) <<at time of sailing
Kayla 12 (dd) << at time of sailing.

My DDs may go for something like this (though mine dont fb or email and they barely txt)... Or we can just meet up sometime b4 the cruise - I live just north of the NYC line in Westchester. Maybe something we can do later in the summer.

Good morning everyone!!! It's Saturday FINALLY! I've got a house to clean. I've been putting it off all week...can't put it off any longer. That's all that's on my agenda today....how about all of you? Any special plans this weekend? Anyone celebrating Valentine's Day early? We're not....DH had to work last night and has to work tonight.

I hear you on cleaning! I have to start since the cleaning fairy failed to show up again

I'm sorry your husband has to work. My husband works every Saturday so it is hard to make plans. We have cabin fever at our summer place so we are heading out there for the night. The only bad part is our winter is so mild that most of the winter activities have been canceled. At least we will still be with our friends!

Snow was in the forecast for last night and this morning but so far a bust here in Southern Connecticut. I bought a snow blower and only used it once.

SW Phantom Men 3D may be on the plans later if my son feels better.

My wife already has started looking through fabric to make a FE to give the kids when we tell them we are sailing. Seeing we are planning in doing WDW in July and this in Feb all Christmas gifts will be Cruise related to not break the bank
