I used to skip right past the long series of numbers at the bottom of some people's posts, then I realized they were the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds til their next cruise! That's so cool! How do you do that?
This is a little embarassing, but here's my way of keeping count - In my bathroom I keep a set of colored dry-erase markers. When I book a cruise, I draw a six inch circle in the center of the mirror with the number of "days til next cruise"in the center, and the countdown begins! Every day, while changing the number, I add a little to an ocean & beach scene around the circle, using the different colored markers.
I booked my last cruise on Jan. 10, (I sail Nov. 2 on the Norwegian Sun) so by now the mirror is over half filled with waves, parasailers, palm trees,
shark fins, the ship, and all sorts of things that make me laugh (I'm no artist!) every time I walk into the bathroom.
And it pumps me up BIGTIME each day that I put a lower number in the circle.
I thought I was nuts, now I find you people keeping track of SECONDS til your next cruise!
Cruises are the greatest, aren't they?
16 circles so far
