I sell plasma twice a week and none of our stops are on the "wait a year" list I can keep paying for this trip!

Box Wine Question

Don't laugh too hard but can anyone recommend a brand of box wine to buy? I usually drink red wines like Syrah or Cabernet.

I like blush wine, so no help.
That or so sweet it's like grape juice.

I will be bringing some of that with me this cruise. But I will have to try it with Diet Coke...never crossed my mind before, so I am excited to try it.
Malibu and pineapple juice is my drink of choice too! i've also added a splash of sprite to jazz it up.

I think I may like your jazzed up version too...so many combinations to try! And I don't even drink too much I guess since we have so many sea days, I will have to build up my tolerance.

We booked Canopy Adventure and our reservation is for 9:45 a.m. I don't see an option to choose 9:15 or 10:45. Can you clarify as I don't want to show up at the wrong time if something has changed? Thanks!

No Worries! You will have tickets waiting in your stateroom with the meeting place and time on them.

Off to get a haircut, pick up the print order Staples screwed up yesterday, make a nail appointment, do the banking, etc.

Happy Day, all!

When I checked it just now I have three options: 9:15, 10:15 and 10:45. Odd isn't it?

Woke up to the happiest thought ever this morning, Last working Friday till AFTER Christmas. This time next week, I will be boarding a plane to the West Coast! We solved our issue of how we were getting home from PHL on the 26th yesterday. We didn't want to pay for 3 weeks of airport parking so my co-worker/friend is dropping us on early on Friday morning but we forgot that they would be home in Hawaii for Christmas and all of our other friends aren't back yet so I was starting to panic. But a new co-worker overheard me yesterday and he will be working on the 26th and will be picking us up. He knows how to suck up!

Our second cruise thread has officailly surpassed the pages/post count of my April Fantasy cruise, we kinda had a disappointing group.

For the first time in my career, I have someone who reports to me and I had forgotten that I will need to find work for her to do while I am away for three weeks. Not sure what to do since I don't have time to explain anything to ther and I won't be able to check her work. Hoping to find 3 weeks worth of training

They do have lemonade, it is minute maid at the drink station. Have you tried ice tea vodka (firefly) and lemonade? It is sooo yummy!

Not laughing...when I talk to my DH this morning I'll ask him. He is kind of a wine snob but he would never admit it because he tries to find great wine at a reasonable price. Also on the boat bottles of wine take up space so he has tried several different brands of box wine and has declared one a good dinner wine. I know he has tried several varietals of it. Whatever brand it is you can buy at BevMo (Beverages & More). I have already checked and there is a BevMo 5 miles from the Vagabond.

In fact for those interested here are some distances from the Vagabond which is right next door to San Pedro Inn and not far from the Doubletree.

Target with Fresh Grocery 1.3 miles
1701 N Gaffey St
San Pedro, CA, 90731
(310) 507-6289


BevMo 5 miles
2533 A Pacific Coast Hwy
Torrance, CA


CVS .28 miles - they have reasonable prices on wine and hard liquor
700 S Gaffey St
San Pedro, CA


Costco 6.4 miles
2751 Skypark Drive
Torrance, CA

One more thing I like to take is a bottle of handsoap for the bathroom. I don't like using bars of soap that get the sink counter all icky. I use it for two weeks and then give it to the cabin steward when I leave.

Haircut appt made
Mani/Ped appt made

We leave one week from today also! We were not going to leave until Saturday but decided since we fly standby that we better go a day earlier and be on the safe side.

Today I will be on the phone with DH while he packs my suitcase since I wasn't planning on being at my son's this long. Thank goodness for 'Viva Mexico' and pray for patience!
