Good MOrning, Happy Cruisers!

There *WILL* be lots of porters at Port - Stand on the curb where the shuttle drops you, surrounded by your luggage and look helpless. One will soon be there. I, too, will be alone (except for Dimples and she's no help at all.)

I don't even have my clothes back from the cleaners yet!

BUT, my to do list is *much* smaller than it was a few days ago!

You can say that again! I'm down from 3 pages to 1.

So, I was sick in bed for 3 days this past weekend after catching what they had. So, Ive been so behind in packing. Plus, DH was in orange county twice in the last 5 days. He got home tonight to pack his stuff. . That cartoon is totally my family. Well, as long as we all stay healthy on this trip it will be the best cruise ever. Can't wait to see you all soon. Safe travels everyone.
DO NOT bring it with you!

Oh, Dear. I'm SO sorry for his loss. But, glad too that it won't keep you from coming.

Tomorrow. TOMORROW! I can stop fretting and FLY! Can't wait to meet y'all.

Happy Day, ALL!

Linda, my DH will be happy to help you! Wanted to let you know we are renting a car for Saturday to go pick our friends up from LAX then go purchase our wine and last minute items. If you need anything from the store give us a call and we will pick it up. Ya know, I'll email you our last name so you can call our room if you need to. Don't hesitate ... we'll be happy to help. What time are you taking shuttle to port?

We leave tomorrow and I have not starting packing yet. I have doctor's appointment and physical therapy today so that will take a chunk out. Also I just got my glasses in the mail yesterday from the repair job after DS dog chewed them so I have to find an optical store to get them adjusted.

Se y'all in three days!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope changing his flight doesn't turn out to be a horrible experience!

The address is: 5919 W 98th St. If you would like I can pick something up for you. But it sounds like from Cruise that it should be fine if there are two people. I would think we would be on the same shuttle. Are you getting excited yet?
Thanks! If you see me at the Marriott I will be the one wearing the Minnie Ears! I am excited!

Rebooking flight

Actually did not turn out to be as bad as I thought. Moved dh's flight to later in the day, incurring $75 change fee. Canceled our car service to the airport, as dh will now drive me & the kids. I'll get a rental car at LAX to get us settled at the hotel, take the kids to a park near my dad's house, etc. Dh will get a cab to the airport, and I'll meet him at LAX with the kids, we'll drop off the rental car and get a cab to the hotel. Net net, we're out maybe $100.

Anyone else doing Super Shuttle at LAX?

OK, time for a quick "I know it's time for a vacation when..." story. I know it's time for a vacation when the boss almost sets the office on fire!

He makes soup every day. Sometimes two or three times a day. I have no idea what he was thinking, but he put his soup in the microwave and set the timer for 40 minutes!!!! I was minding my own business, working hard (ok, maybe I was here on the DIS) and my eyes started to burn. Then I realized that the room was filling with smoke. Thinking that my portable heater was overheating, I turned it off, but the smoke got worse. A quick trip to the other room and I noticed the smoke pouring out of the microwave. Once I determined that there was no fire (yet!!!!) I turned it off, opened the windows, turned on the fans and told him that he needed to get off the phone and help me ventilate the office. Of course, it's the coldest day of the season today, and all the windows are open and the fans are on. I'm freezing, I need to go somewhere warm and sunny---like maybe the Panama Canal?

One more thing--we've been in this office 10 years, and today we found out that we don't have smoke detectors! The best part is that they had tested the fire alarm this morning. It worked then, but not a peep out of it when the place was full of smoke.

He did offer me the rest of the day off, but I have too many things that have to be wrapped up before I can leave for vacation. So I'm here wrapped in a shawl, thinking about putting my coat on, and have my little heater blasting at my feet!
