No frills is exactly what I need, just a clean place to sleep. No, I haven't checked if anything is nearby, this week has been absolutely crazy. I'll buy a few 20 oz bottles at the airport but never take on big bottles or cans. Diet coke serves my caffeine addiction adequately. I hate to buy extra when there's free soda on the ship.



176 Days!!!




Everything set for the bar mitzvah?

Were inching closer. Is it on the SAS list? Did I ask that?


No we're 100% for the bar mitzvah. We've got one week. My kippah arrived misspelled and the new ones were supposed to arrive today. Just a minor heart attack. Good thing you and MEK are RNs.

Dinner is set. The cake is set. The luncheon is half way set. But sweet Joshua is ready.

So one week to the bar mitzvah? Loved Joshua's haircut picture on FB.

Can I just tell you that when I was a 13 year old I attended many bar mitzvahs and I have so many wonderful memories of those events. Such a wonderful, meaningful ceremony (which at the time seemed eternal) and such enjoyable festivities. I hope everything goes off without a hitch!

I can't remember if you asked but yes it is. I found it before looking at the list and then saw it again on the list which was a bonus. Mostly good reviews which is better than a lot of others.

Oh my goodness, I would have had a panic attack. Did the others arrive? Mary Ellen is a NP and works in cardiac. But please no heart attacks

So exciting- just a week to go! I agree with MEK, Joshua's FB haircut was so cute- he is such a nice kid- I feel so lucky that I got to meet all three of your spectacular offspring while in DLR this summer!

I am having a Jenny morning, lol- I just texted you too-

Ok, what's a kippah? I'm too lazy to Google.

Can't believe its only a week until his Bar Mitzvah! Glad Joshua is ready.

It's snowing here in Denver. I can't believe its only the 4th of October! I'm not ready for winter!!!! At least I'll be in Florida 2 weeks from today!

You're so sweet, thank you. I'm pretty much having a nervous breakdown right now. Not really but we're to the point where there isn;t much more we can do until about 2 days before. We were going to get a bakery cake but then my bestie's daughter offered to bake his cake. Its really cute. I'll see if I can get one of them to send me a pic. It's so cute and who doesn't love the taste of a homemade cake better than a bakery? Ok, maybe an upscale bakery but I am not spending $250 on a cake which was what I was quoted. I know his bar mitzvah is a once in a lifetime. I also know he's 12 and as long as there is chocolate and chocolate and maybe some candy on top, he'll be happy. Sorry, I'm rambling.....

Not yet. I got a UPS shipment notification but no kippah. You have no clue what a headache this year every year. I'm not quite sure why. We went with a different compnay this year hoping to alleviate the kippah stress.

The kippah or yarmulke (yam-a-ka) is the skull cap worm. www.jewfaq.org can answer all of your questions.


Snowed here too. Just shoot me. The thought my 20th winter really makes me question my sanity.

Stalk away! I would have booked the hotel you were at but it's just too much for me.

I'm sorry about the kippahs, does the tracking number have a delivery date with it? How could they possibly spell them wrong don't they check them five million times before shipping

You'd think with a last name of Sheets, it wouldn't be all that difficult.


I'm heading to the gym to work off some of this nervous energy.
