My bags are packed and I'm ready to go.

Keep your eyes on the news. We may be the first group physically removed for having way too much fun

I will be watching for those Speedos...You better believe it

I can not believe 8 days til you sail. I am so excited for you!!! You do realize you have got to post atleast one speedo pic.

We need to start a Monthly chat topic of speedo pics (ex. May Speedos) and then everyone vote for their favorite. The good, the bad, and the ugly but protecting the persons face by fuzzing it out before it gets posted.

Just heard the Valor had to pull to port for emergency repairs. They may be sidelined for a week or more according to the report...Not sure what happened. They are flying everyone home at Carnivals expense. Sorry Darlene but this may just ruin your trip....Better get on the horn and let your group know...

STARTLE That wasn't the word for it. I just choked on my morning coffee. Plus I am so "relieved" I visited the bathroom before I sat down to my computer..

I am so glad that I didn't get this as soon as you posted the first one I read them both right after the other.
You are a funny fellow....I will say..Thanks for the blood rush..It woke me up

The excitement is insane.

I have packed and re-packed. I re-arranged my living room furniture.

I have cleaned and cleaned and cleaned.....I am now trying to waste time and get productive things done. I lists everywhere

Tomorrow won't come soon enough
Thanks and I hope with some help (cq) to be able to learn how to post pictures.

Darlene, dont forget to listen for "Velour". Hope the weather is fine and the sailing finer. Last word of advice. As your trip coordinator dont try to please each of your 26 people. A big group will have many different ideas of fun. Make sure you have a good time and others will or wont based on their own expectations. I learned that traveling with my big family. Just hook up at dinner or a party thing and let everybody do their own thing on their own schedule. Have a great time...
