I'm enjoying your TR! You're so lucky that you still have your cruise to look forward to and to plan! Do your cats go outside? Mine do, but they also spend a lot of time inside. When it rains they get really annoyed. They go to different doors in the house and whine to be let out, then are upset when that door has rain, too! Good luck finding a good place to board them. We get people to come by to feed them - but it totally stresses me out, leaving them "alone"!

YAY! Glad you're enjoying it!

My kitties do not go outside, well, sometimes I'll let them out on our porch. But our girl cat has no front claws and the boy cat is a scardy cat! When he wants to go out he goes and sits on one step and eats grass, then he comes to the door and wants to be let in. Its very funny! The other day he wanted to go out to eat grass and it was raining so we let him out and he wanted to come RIGHT in, none of that rain for him!

Your kitties sound wonderful and very cute. Its so intresting what awesome personalities animals have! I would have a friend come and stay with them, but the girl cat is older now and gets UTI's and the boy cat has this problem that is LIKE a UTI, but its Crystals and can kill him very quickly if he is not taken to the dr. He gets them when he's stressed and me leaving would stress him out. So the Doctor is the best place! I just worry about the girl cat, she HATES going there and isn't very nice. Oh well. It will all work out and I'll know they are safe!

Making of the Magnets!

29 Days! And this morning I got my cardstock and magnets in the mail to make the magnets for the door! I AM SO super excited that. Which is good because Iíve been in a lot of pain yesterday and today! It keeps my mind off of icky thing!

So Iíll give you a bit of a hint about the magnets. As Iíve said before there will be a theme for every day. There will always be our names and my kitty magnet up. But Iíll tell you a few of the other days.

1. Quote of the day!

2. Momís bday Day!

3. Once Upon A Time Day

4. Disney Princess Day

There are MANY MANY other days of course! I canít wait to get on board and set them all up! They will be a surprise for my mom as well. She doesnít know the days.

Yesterday she was a big dork. She recently found this website where Police from all of the country have things online to sell at auction. Like ebay, but the proceeds go to help the Police and the communities. She was OBESSED with it for about a week and then we realized itís a bit crazy. But sometimes we try and we get awesome things! Like one of the FE gifts weíre giving is from there *So YAY for helping the Police* and it only cost about 10 dollars. But she found this little statue that was made in ďOccupied JapanĒ thatís whatís stamped on the bottom. Itís a little bird and super cute. She got it for a dollar. I kid you not. And about $6 shipping.

So she seeís it when she gets home and instantly falls in love with it even more. We had this discussion:

Mom: This was SUCH a great birthday gift for myself!

Me: I thought the cruise was for your birthday!

Mom: No, thatís for your graduation. *me feeling very bad, because when I graduated I hadnít had the Lupus symptoms and now I may never be able to cook in a kitchen*

Me: *stunned* *long pause* WellÖits ALSO YOUR birthday cruise.

She agreed, and then put the bird in our cabnet of awesome-ness. We are Native Alaskan so she has MANY awesome Alaskan Native things, and some things from Japan when she lived there as a small child *her dad was in the Air Force*. And we have some other awesome things.

My mom is a dork and the bees knees for falling in love with a tiny bird she bought for a dollar. Gotta love her.

OH! We also decided weíll be getting a week wine package, that way we can share a bottle over two nights and make it last for 2 weeks. Weíre getting SO excited, and my mom needs it more and more because of her job. So bring it on!

Now time to go make magnets!

Also I have no idea if we got our Disney Docs yet. If I feel up to it I'll walk to the post office box.

Hey there! I have been Dis-absent for a week or more, but I am back. I can't believe how close your cruise is!

In fact, I just got a couple of emails from my brother. He lives in San Francisco and was walking home from work tonight when what should he see but THE DISNEY WONDER!!! He took pics to send to me and Willow immediately.

HI!!!! Long time no see! I just read your PTR!!!! I'm so glad you guys are settling into the new Schedule!

I can't BELIEVE how close it is! I still have so much to do! But I started working on my magnets and used your ideas with the cardstock! It is working GREAT!!! Thank you!

That is SO cool that he was just walking along and saw the Wonder. I wish I could do that every day!

Oh, I'm so glad the magnets are working out. I can't wait to see them!!!!

Right??? I am so jealous - I thought it was awesome that he actually thought to stop and take some pics to email to his niece. Poor Willow, she just about started crying when I told her that the Wonder was in California because she would soon be sailing to Hawaii - she REALLY wants to be on your cruise.

Ohhh!!! No crying girls!!! That was VERY nice of him! Does she have a favorite disney character!? I could get a small version and take pictures for her on the ship and send them to you later. Then she can "be" on the cruise as well!

Yeah, I had to order TWO more packets of magnets from Amazon today because I ran out of them so quickly. I just want to make sure they stick!

Oh, that is the cutest idea ever! The last thing I want to do though is give you more expense and something else to have to carry on board. But maybe you could just do a print out on your card stock or something? That would be cool! What do you think? I could ask her about it.

I used up my entire roll of magnet sheet from Amazon, so I'm sure you will need about 20 rolls!

Ugh, yeah, I'm going to bring extra magnets just in case! I'll let you know how they work out!!!

Well, I mentioned it to her, and she immediately said, "Minnie!" I think she liked the idea. She was, however, almost asleep, so I will explain it more to her tomorrow, but I think she will LOVE it! That is so cool of you! That girl does love "her ship."

YAY!!!!! Its pure magic!!! Well let me know if she changes her mind. I do have a small Minnie that I can take around! It will be so much fun!

And I have NEVER been on the Wonder. Only the Magic. I should ask Willow for some tips!

I am sure that she will get a real kick out of this. She loves Minnie, so that should work perfectly. Maybe she can even tell you some of her favorite spots to see. She was also really keen to see how the characters looked on the cruise when I told her Minnie wouldn't have her parka like on our cruise.

Oh, I am SURE that she would be THRILLED to answer any question you might have!

Now I'm even MORE excited!!!! I bet the characters will be dressed for Hawaii...I hope just not the normal tropical. Though there isn't anything wrong with that! And we're trying to petition for a Halloween party. Our cruise doesn't get one and we're ALL outraged.

This is going to be so fun!!! We are for SURE going to be on a beach on Maui to this local restaurant and then we're doing an awesome movie tour on Kauai. Besides that...we do not know at this point!
