No suggestions here.
I can't focus. I've been on this board almost all day.
bad thing is I'm at work. I'm supposed to be working.

I'm really in trouble...I have 140 something days left and I already am sidetracked all day at work!
Would someone mind sending my boss an email excusing me from work until I come back from my cruise?

stop trying to fight the feeling !!! go with it...get a picture of your ship and cut it up into 9 parts and each day paste 1 part on your computer screen so on your last day at work you won't be able to see the screen on your computer..play caribbean steel drum music every day on your way to work...print out the daily dinner menu on your ship and every day at work that corresponds to your day at sea, loudly tell your co-workers what you will be having for dinner on your cruise next week, while they are eating their peanut butter and jelly sandwichs..the time will pass quickly and you co-workers will encourage you to take a few "sick" days prior to your cruise (smile)

Venice,

Can I really do that?
Where do I find the Dinner Menu?
You have some pretty good idea's.
I only have 2 days left of work. The day before I fly to Orlando I'm going to a day SPA
I need to be spoiled a little bit.

heck yea, go to www.cruiseclues.com and they have daily menus and schedules (another chat member turned me on to this)
great idea to go to the spa a day before, you didn't indicate which ship you were on but don't forget to go to the spa on the ship...if your ship goes to a private island they usually have the massage folks from the spa come on the island and give massages..get one of those and have your picture taken and e-mail it back to your friends at work..of course when you get back to work you may not have any friends (smile)..before you leave put your ship on your computer screen saver so if anyone tries to use your machine they'll see your ship..also fix your e-mail that gives the automatic response that says sorry i'm out of the office on my cruise, if you need to reach me i will be in st thomas on tuesday. st marteen on wednesday and my own private island on friday

Think of it this way:

If you get too distracted at work you could be fired.
If you get fired you won't be making any money.
If you don't make money you can't save for your next cruise.
If you can't save for another cruise you can't go on one.

That's all I can say to help, so good luck...
