Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

Two weeks from today I FLY!

Did anyone get up early and go shopping this morning? Not me! I actually slept until 7 AM which is practically unheard of

How I envy those of you with houses full of family yesterday! Being on the older end of the spectrum, we went out for a quiet dinner in an elegant restaurant with even older friends. It was lovely and delicious - but totally not the same as the groaning board surrounded by loved ones.

I'm pretty much done with everything I'm creating and or buying for this trip. All that's left is the packing. How about you?

Today, although it's probably too early, I think we'll *make* Christmas. DH's first ski day is Sunday, so I need to keep him busy or he'll pack and repack his gear for the next two days.

Happy Day, All!

We did our shopping last night...we are down at my parents house and really didn't celebrate Thanksgiving b/c we are waiting for my sister to get here which won't be until Saturday. So, DH really wanted a 60" TV, so at 4:00 he and my brother in law went down to Walmart to wait in line for the 10:00 pm pricing. They actually had a good time and it was pretty civilized. They eventually handed out numbered tickets, so it went very smoothly. Now, the stuff on the pallets in the aisles....wow! Once I get home I will post pictures of their little campsite (in the aisle of the paint department)...they were very comfortable! Now, getting that TV home is a little tricky since we have an 8 hour drive ahead of us on Sunday, so the kids might be a tad cramped!

Can't believe in about 2 weeks we will be leaving! I am just thinking of all the things I want to get done before then! I'm sure it will just fly by.

It was a quiet Thanksgiving for me. My son and his family had plans to go out of town for the weekend long before I came to recuperate so I insisted they go. It wasn't an option for me to ride three hours to go with them. So I had a very tasty Marie Callendar's turkey dinner and a movie marathon. Both my sons called to check in on me. My husband and I spent hours on the phone together, thank goodness for the 'viva mexico' phone plan we have.

I can't wear heels now so I'm going to wear dressy slacks and blouses for formal nights. The consolation I have is that I'll wear my Christian Louboutin ballerina flats. Those will make me feel dressy.

No Black Friday shopping for me! However, I am camera shopping. My husband got mine wet and it's toast now. My new iPhone 5 came Wednesday so I'm having fun talking to Siri! I think that's enough shopping for me. I do want a new underwater camera though. Online research and shopping for me. I still have two weeks to get things shipped here.

Ginger tablets, now that's the thing. Not candied ginger that I bought for a previous cruise. Wow!

I've also been told ginger snaps have enough ginger in them to be helpful.

Why does time speed up as I get older!!???

Hello again!
I've been busy since last spring and am just now getting into my pre cruise mood. I am sure i've missed lots of good stuff....I've got to sew a couple of fish extenders for family this weekend and get the rest of our fish gifts done. I am kinda surprised they havent assigned us a room yet.
Is it me....or is this ship pretty empty??
LOL....There might be a chair next to the pool open! YEA!

Your Christian Louboutin ballet flats will be way dressier than my full length gown. I have always lusted over his shoes and the distinctive red sole. And I am wearing slacks and a beaded jacket for one of our formal nights .
Also your post reminded me that I need to see AT&T about my phone plan while on the cruise. Sherry

Black Friday

Well, I'm exhausted and DH is sleeping.
After dinner last night I dropped him off at Best Buy where he waited in line for me for 4 1/2 hours till they opened at midnight. Meanwhile I did Walmart and Target and met him back at BB by 10:30. Finally got home (to my cousins) at 2:30. Was up with her until 5, to bed till 9 and back on the road by 10:30. Tomorrow we are headed into New York City for the day. Needless to say it will be an early night for all tonight....

OK. Now I've got to go look and see what I'm missing!

Obviously you are young and energetic. I would never even have attempted that shopping spree.

Me, too! I'm convinced my "bear ate the turkey" incident was someone's way of telling me I needed a new camera before this trip. The one I've been using is my DD's cast-off, and it has been acting up for awhile. I don't take too many pictures, so it hasn't really been an issue. But not being able to get that particular pic made me realize I needed something more reliable, so I ordered one from Amazon Wed. night. My Christmas present to me!

That's pretty potent stuff!

That was my reaction exactly. I'm too tired and annoyed by crowds to even consider it.

No Black Friday shopping here...although we did stop at Kmart yesterday on our way to the MIL's. No crowd, and I picked up a new spinner suitcase. I worked today and was perfectly happy to let others have their BF shopping experience.

DH noticed some activity on DCL's website today, with different categories coming and going. I'm sure they're playing with *GT/GTY assignments, so I wouldn't be surprised to see something Sunday or Monday (14ish days out) for us. Please, please, please!

How *empty* is the ship?

A pp mentioned 5 suites as still available. Do we know how many rooms in total ar still available?

Does anyone want to take bets on how many cabins won't be full - as in, there won't be a lot of kids bc it's school season?

We Have a Nice Group

Just wanted to say that. I'm a newbie, and read the general cruise line forum, and there are some very mean spirited ones on there. Threads that go on and on and on, and there's nothing constructive about them.

16 days - LOVE to see LindaBabe's countdown tag!

Looking forward to Relaxin's post this Sunday!

Hope everyone had a nice turkey day. Just done emptying the turkey roaster and disinfecting my fridge from raw turkey juices. I think next year I have one thing on the menu...reservations!!!!
