Default 13 days--let the packing commence!!!!

Woohoo, 13 days until I leave! Suitcases came out and I threw two pairs of shorts in the suitcase already. I had to if I didn't want to take fur from a half of a cat. I'll end up taking ye ole clothes brush to get the fur off of them!!! I've done a trial run and I can easily squeeze ALL of my clothes in and have half of the suitcase free. I'm laying the clothes down insteading of folding or rolling and it takes up a lot less room!!!! I even found the perfect little bag for my digital camera/camcorder stuff (batteries and cards) so no need to put em in a ziplock bag!!!!

I am so organized... 8)

The only problem is the 13 day wait now......ya, there is no cure for that.

I gotta go where it's warm.....

I have 34 days till we leave and I have the suitcases inside and some stuff already set out to pack. When we come back from the first cruise, I get to do laundry and pack it again to leave in December. We will not be needing to wear any shorts or sundresses at home before we leave again....I am positive about that! It will probably be pretty cold by then but hopefully we will not have any snow!
I just LOVE coming home in the winter with a nice suntan! My kids (grown) just hate it!!!
Have a great time on your trip!

I am so far behind. I leave in 2 weeks and I haven't packed a thing. I need to get started on that in just a little bit. Pick out some things I will be taking anyway. I have company coming next weekend, so I can't really spread too much stuff out. If it weren't for the company, I would probably have it all over my guest bedroom. Everyone have a great time on your cruise!!!!!!!!! Be sure and tell us all about it when you get back.

I'm not far behind you guys, about 20-something days left. My ship (Destiny) is probably in drydock right now, getting refitted, so we'll be on her first maiden voyage out of her new port of call in Miami. I'm expecting to be wowed!

We sail a week from tomorrow.... we are packed.. luggage tags are laminated... receipts, passports, fun pass.. etc all done.
We even did thank you cards for those who take special care of us. And a sign to post on our door.
And this time, I am not forgetting my deck plans. Last year I printed the deck plans out so I knew exactly where everything was at a glance, and I left them at home... I know, it could have been worse...

By the way, we had out of town this friday even though we don't sail until sunday.... we will be on vacation. 8) 8) 8) 8)

I like to make my packing list out 2 weeks in advance and then pack the night before. This gives me time to go over the list to make sure nothing is missing or forgotten. Bob
