FE Spoiler Alert!

WARNING -- This post contains an FE spoiler. Skip if you'd rather be suprised.

Still reading? Okay. Here it goes. Our FE gifts are pirate themed and will be given out on the day of Pirate Night. We've added a twist. In addition to the gifts, each package contains a different playing card (we bought multiple decks of cards -- all with a sports theme, of course).

For those few of you lucky enough to capture the Jack of Spades (aka -- Captain Jack Spade-row), you'll collect an additonal pirate reward . . . but only if you find us during Pirate Night and follow the instructions attached to the card. The boys will wear their pirate mouse ears, so we should be pretty easy to find.

Sorry for the spoiler, but I realized that only those with the Jack of Spades would understand why we added the playing cards to the package. We should have extras, so we'll accomodate as many late comers as possible.

Good luck!!

DH is extremely sensitive to motion; he cruises with a stock of meclazine and Scopalamine patches, which are very effective. BUT...the trick is to apply a patch before getting on the ship, not when you start to feel queasy (says he, the voice of experience!) We've also tried sea bands, with no effect. Luckily, I don't tend to have motion sickness unless I'm foolish enough to ride something "spinny". I love the motion of the ship when I'm sleeping .

I, too, will have a fairly complete "pharmacy", just in case anyone needs anything. I'm hoping to avoid any "plagues", since we're just recovering from the resp. infection that everyone around here seems to have. There has to be a grace period, right?

Formal wear

We will be on the more semi-formal, if not cruise casual on formal night. I am still in the process of losing weight. I have another 20 to go, and buying new clothes is not on the agenda. I think I am going to have to live in my bathing suit for the two weeks. It will make packing easy.

I have my company Gala this Saturday night, and I am wearing my "little black dress" that is 6 sizes too big. I hangs like a bag on me, but I just can't fork out a couple hundred dollars for one night. If I find time, I may try a second hand store. I have tried on my DD prom dresses, and they fit, but not age appropriate. Or what my mind has sees me wearing.

I have a silver gown I'm wearing, and have tuxes for dh and ds, and have a pretty dress for DD. I realize most cruisers will be much more casual, but I want to get some great photos of us together.

I've sent you a pm. Maybe I can find something for you around here.

This year, I have so many things for which to be thankful - good health, good friends, a 'speck' that didn't need a biopsy, dh's knee that only needed pt instead of surgery, sunny days, and a cruise to look forward to (ok, 4 cruises. and a train journey.)

What are YOU particularly thankful for this year?

I called to verify all the flight ino today only to learn that we didn't have any seat assignments and that they didn't have 4 seats near each other. I don't want my 7 and 9 year old sitting away from me for a nearly 6 hour flight! Hopefully I can swap with some others once at the airport.
I'm sure there will be no problems checking in. I normally check in and receive my boarding pass, at home, 24 hours before the flight. The earlier the better.

On a similar note... I was flying home on Continental Airlines with my then 5yr old DS. I was a bit late checking in and was standing in line for the gate agent and heard an announcement that if I hadn't checked in by now, I had basically lost my seating. Obviously, we had seats together. By the time I reached the agent, she could only confirm my DS' original seat and I was booked into a seat several rows back in the plane. When we boarded, I sat in my original seat and when the passenger showed up to sit, I explained the situation and he was kind enough to switch seats.

During the flight, after being delayed on the ground on the plan for about 1 hour, my DS was noisy. A flight attendant asked me "Can you keep him quiet?" I replied, "No, can you?" Subsequently I gave my DS his waterproof Crayola markers and his coloring book. He took some solace in not only coloring in the book, but on the tray table and bulkhead of the airplane. When an attendant noticed the new aircraft colors she asked, "What are you going to do about that?!" I replied, "Just hand me a wet towel and all will be good." It all wiped up without any residue.

Needless to say I never flew Continental again.

You should add that the boys have brown bandana pirate mouse ears as there are many pirate mouse ears on pirate night.

To digress....in addition to medication for motion sickness, DH also uses ginger tablets with good effect. They can be found at Walmart and other places where vitamins, supplements, etc are sold.

Now, back to holiday grazing....

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. So grateful for so many things. We had 4 of the grandkids here all day and it was chaos, but truly wonderful at the same time. Sherry

After cooking and cleaning up a huge Thanksgiving feast, I am ready for a 2 week vacation where I don't have to do either of those!
