Everyone packed? Not exactly - our spare room is filled with stuff I have collected...some are even in suitcases!

Guess I had better get cracking on that huh?

It's getting so close!!

I can't believe that we leave Canada in only 11 days, and we have a sleepover birthday party between now and then!!! Finally bought the new portable DVD player for the ride, so we're almost ready

Thats what are spare room looked like for our November cruise over a month before and this cruise I have not even started (have an empty spare room) it has been crazy around here.. I recently lost my StepFather- my children's Pa (Jan. 23rd) needless to say it has been a very long three weeks. I just got back into the swing of things Yesterday with the cruise and went to get my Fish extender from my MIL and now that has gone missing.. we had received them the day of his celebration of life they were christmas gifts from us to My inlaws and My mom step-dad and little brother. So today I had to order a new one... the lady was so nice and said she would make us a new FE asap. I am SUPER EXCITED but have a lot of planning and packing of the clothes... It will all come together just thought I share! Our family is in need of this trip!!

Sorry to hear about your Stepdad. I hope there are no more snags in your preparations and packing, and that all the McPherons have a relaxing, healing vacation!

Please note the final list for our Sessions cocktail party. DCL is waiting for me to send them this list, so this is our last chance to make any changes. If I have requested stateroom info from you on our FB page, please send it ASAP. Here is our bar list:


Signature Bar
$18.50 per person/per hour

Wine: La Crema Chardonnay, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio, Robert Mondavi Coastal Merlot, Kendall Jackson VR Cabernet Sauvignon

Beer: Budweiser, Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, Corona, Heineken, Michelob Ultra, Samuel Adams, Newcastle, Guinness, Stella Artois

(Note the price drop from $20 to $18.50 - yay!)

Non-drinkers will be charged $10.75 each, which includes soft drinks, juices, and gratuity.

We are definitely not able to increase our headcount to more than 49. I would be happy to set up a second, less-formal gathering for later in the week in one of the open common lounge areas such as Promenade Lounge or Signals - just let me know!

Anxious!!

I am waiting for the Fish Extender and pillowcase that I ordered from Etsy to arrive and it is supposed to be here by the 20th. I looked on Etsy and the seller has deleted all the listings from their shop!!!

I emailed her last night but haven't heard back yet. Trying to think positive but fearing the worst.

If you are in FE#2 and see a room with Target bags hanging from the fish, you'll know what happened...

I also ordered our FE off ESTY way back in the first week of Nov and told them we needed them by FEB 7th for my cruise because she did have a couple reviews saying they did not receive the merchandise on time. Thank god I did that because it came Feb 7th and not a day sooner. I had made several emails to her in Jan to make sure it would be there in Feb. She had told me it would mail out on the 20-25 of Jan. and of course it did not so I understand what your going thru. Just make sure to email her every day and hopefully it will come in time. For what its worth ours was worth the wait. It came out perfect, thank goodness cause I can not sew! But I did notice her shop was off the site as well so maybe we ordered from same
person.

Good Luck,
Sonia

That is upsetting - I hope that it does arrive. but if it does not and you have to use that target bags you can think of it a Target shopping spree full of surprises from friends.

Keep trying some times they close down shop because they are behind on orders. I was thinking about getting a reusable tote from the disney store with Jake and the Neverland pirates and making a note our fish extender is lost in Neverland with the lost boys! Since we lost ours. Keep trying.

So maybe etsy is a big fail this weekend! :-( I have been so excited about the great find I thought I had made for unique FE gifts. I have been in contact with the etsy seller for a couple of months and placed my order in plenty of time. She gave me a great special bulk price, which was part of the reason I joined FE 2.

Today I get an e-mail that she's "so sorry" but she is not going to be able to complete the order because she is "having trouble getting some of the materials." Procrastinate much?? So now I am starting at square one, with less than two weeks to go. First world problems...

But seriously, I am irritated! I have finally gotten to a point where I am not stressed out by my to-do list. Shopped for DH all day yesterday and ready to get him packed. Lilia has outgrown literally every stitch of cruise clothing I bought for this trip at the end of last summer, so she is next on my list. I have four tennis matches to play this week - USTA league matches so I can't just cancel them. Good thing I am an insomniac, because the middle of the night is the only time I'll have to get anything done!

Ok, rant over. Carry on.

Can I add my problem of the day? Went to Walmart for milk, bread and disposable razors for the cruise. It ended up costing me $150.00. Some idiot broke off my passenger side mirror, just left it hanging by the wire. I have fold away mirrors, they just don't fold forward.i think we all NEED this trip ASAP.
