Default Bad day...

So all I have is Cruising on the brain ...it's all I think about, if my husband was to leave me tomorrow I would wonder who else to take ...I tell you something is wrong ,I Love my husband.
I was also pulled over today by a cop . when he asked why I thought he pulled me over I replied "speeding??" he said " No." ( odd usually I'am speeding) Nope Ran not one , but to stop sign's. Vacation better come soon. I was scared I could have hurt someone. I was let off with a warning...the cop must have been having a good day. I'am so ashamed of myself. Well now that's off my chest I need to go think about what I did today...and count my blessings that today wasn't a bad one....


....Soon we'll be making another run.....

Jab you really have to be careful or stay at home till your next cruise. But then you would have to hide all the sharp instruments and matches. :-)

Been there, done that--and in relation to cruising.

Sept 20, I disembark from Enchantment. Bad enough that cruise is over; but no, there's more!

Sept 21, my car starts making a funny noise between Columbia and Charlotte. AC quits working. Temp 80+

Sept 22, take car to dealership in Statesville, broken part not in stock, won't have it until following day. Part is covered by service contract, which is in drawer at home, not with me.

Sept 23. Morning: Car repaired, begin day with $400 outlay. Evening: After driving in 70 MPH states all day, I enter Oh which is 65 throughout. Finish day with $90.00 dollar ticket, less than 100 miles from home. No warning, no record since my last ticket 12 years before. Trooper was very young. I may have been his first ticket, an honor of dubious distinction to say the least.

Well worth a laugh later! Hang in there, Janet! I assure you it gets much better!

I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!


Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 And again!

Janet - be careful out there!!! Cruise anticipation is wonderful, but ya gotta keep your mind in the here and there til you get on board....THEN you can let it all go! I'm glad you only got a warning and nothing happened.......I think the more cruises you take the better you will be able to handle the pre cruise anticipation!

A while back..trooper pulled me over..ask me if I knew why he pulled me over..I told
him no..dont you know why you stopped me..He told me that he had followed me
for 5 miles and I never made a bobble or not one mistake and he wanted to tell me
what a great job I was doing..I told him that when you are as drunk as I was..you just
got to be very careful....(JK) but worth a laugh..hope your day gets better.

Boy, I wish I had a cruise to anticipate. Until then, guess I'll continue being a driving menace to society.

Janet this is kind of funny but the same thing happened to me yesterday after I saw my TA <I made a payment on my cruise> After talking to her and looking at other cruises for next year I am leaving the parking lot, dreaming about our upcoming cruise and oopps I am not stopping at the stop sign and cut off a cop. I am like oops he gave me a funny look but did not pull me over <Thank God>

It is funny how easy it is to become distracted while driving. This is one reason why I always tell my daughter to limit her cell phone use while driving. But, that is a whole other tread! Janet, I'm glad you only received a warning...it sure sounds like you won't let it happen again.
