I don't know what/where the D Lounge is but it is suggestion.
I dont either, but it looks like we will be having a decent size meet...maybe some of the others that have been on the ship before, will be able to help with that question.

I saw that on tv this morning. And Margaret Thatcher, too. Despite whether or not you agreed with her politics she was an inspiration to many women in a make dominated political environment.

It's only 4.30pm here and I'm ready for dinner. I've had a casserole cooking for a few hours and it smells delicious.

It is a good evening with the Blackhawks winning.

Family is planning on Christmas in Florida this year. Just a week after we get off the Fantasy.

Well thats nice to look forward to...takes away the cruise-let down....

I'm trying to figure out how to juggle being there when my daughter has her baby in November and doing the cruise. I'm thinking I need to be there for the birth, as her husband will be on deployment and I will need at least 2 weeks to spend with here, to make sure she is ok and can handle things by herself....then the cruise falls into that time frame....Not sure they will let me take 3 weeks in a row off....I may have to do a FMLA for a couple of weeks??

Well I am leaving in 2 weeks to go visit them, so I'm sure I will get more info then.

Have a good day

Check into FMLA, when my son was 2 weeks old he had to go to the hospital he ended up being in Children's Mercy for almost 2 weeks. DH already used maternity leave, was back at work for 2 days before our son got sick. FMLA had him use up all of his vacation time before helping him. AHH it was a stressful situation dealing with his work...

OH when my father passed away, I was executrix of his estate. Problem...I am in Virginia and he lived in Georgia. my siblings were no assistance at all. I would ask them to be my legs on something. nah...so I was making a lot of flying trips home.

my leave really took a hit, especially when right in the middle of this my husband busts his heel on his right foot and couldn't drive, so I became chauffer to him and all his appts....

Home again

Just home from 10 days on the Grand Princess to the Mexican Riviera. Had a great time but was disappointed in some of the conditions on the ship. Things were somewhat shabby and not that long after a big dry dock. Not that we can plan for weather but it wasn't the greatest. The water in Cabo was pretty darn cold still--burrrr! Met some great folks though and it was nice to be able to drive to the port
