Default It's Friday and I'm outta here....

Good Friday morning. The day is finally here.......we are outta here later today and cruising tomorrow! It is 3 degrees here today with windchills below zero. I'm counting on seeing a jump of at least 70 degrees later today when we arrive in Ft. Lauderdale. I was supposed to be off today to finish up...but, here I sit at work. Oh well....soon enough. You all have a great day and week. I'll be thinking of you all!

Good Morning Cruisemates,

MaryLou - have a great cruise. I keep telling myself I'm not jealous, I'm not jealous.

Today will bring the son to school, then go get his girlfriend. Then do a couple of errands, gas up the van and head to the Medical Center in New Hampshire to have my pre-op exam. Still have a lot to do before Tuesday, but I'll get it done somehow.

Yesterday found out that I will be released from the hospital on Wed (if all goes well), then on Thursday my husband will have to have surgery on two hernias here at our local hospital. He went to the doctors two weeks ago, met with the surgeon last week and given a date. Not a big deal, but with both of us having surgery in two days, and trying to figure out how to get him to and from hospital, as I can't drive for 2 weeks, is a little nerve wracking. I was looking forward to some down time, alone, but I guess that is not to be, and I know it sounds really selfish, but when I'm feeling poorly I just like to be alone. Guess God's trying to teach me something.

Well I'm running late.
Hope you all have a stressfree day.

VTJen

Good morning from swfl...brought youngest daughter to the doctor yesterday because her temp was 103.6. But he seems to think its a virus and did nto give her any meds. This morning she is still feeling lousy . Gave her some more fluids, tylenol and now she is sleeping again.
We did get our DSL package but they say our lines are not activated until the 4th. Tonight my dh and I are going out to dinner with my MIL if youngest daughter is feeling well enough to be left at home with oldest and middle daughter.

Next weekend we are going to Miami for a church event. ML have a wonderful cruise I am sure you will enjoy it a lot!
I am off to see if I can find some cheap fares to Europe....

Everyone already posted and everyone to follow, have a great and safe weekend.

Good Morning, Everybody,
The sun is shining in Avon Park FL and the temp says 57 degrees at 7:56AM.

Today our Activities Staff gets to wear our new department shirts--tangerine (orange?). The old ones were a dark teal, my former boss's favorite color. Apparently there were none left when my new boss went to order for some employees who didn't get one, so now we have the bright citrus look! I think it will brighten and perk us up a lot-we are a dept of women, who go for the fashion!! I don't know about up north, but this is one of "THEE" colors down here this spring.

Nothing too sensational is going on except we were on the computer a LONG time last night looking at possible cruises. As much as we'd like to go in May during our anniversary week on the Caribbean Princess, the much better rate is on the Star Princess in October. We read that it is a beautiful ship and the reviewers gave it pretty high marks.Plus, it is a ship we haven't been on before----5th different ship for 5 cruises. But-we have to book by Feb. 17 to get the good deal. The balcony rooms are already pretty sold out.

Yesterday I got all the way to the grocery store for the work pasteries and I discovered that I'd forgotten my name tag, keys with the time clock swipe card on them. UGH. So, I got the groceries and delivered them to work then came home and got the keys. I'm glad I live closeby. I had to just "write-in" my time so it wouldn't screw up my time, and then double punched out last night. (in then out) I hate it when I do that!!

Better go. it's already 8:05-I've been pushing my luck with the clockin anyway. Bye. Have wonderful cruises this week!!! Lynne

Good Morning CruiseMates!! A very chilly 1 degree here in NH's Lakes Region. A good day to stay in and stay warm. Still job hunting though and have a few places to go to this morning. That cruise on the Glory sounds interesting. If I get a job real soon I will look into it. Have a great day all.

Morning all, from Montreal, where that thermometer is still stuck at -22. I don't even want to know the wind chill! I'm off early this morning to pick up some more of my mom's things, and spend the day with her at the Residence. We will be celebrating her actual birthday with a few visitors and the cook is making her a cake. Thanks once again to all you CruiseMates who have sent her cards and postcards filled with good wishes.Prayers and best wishes are the reason why she's still here to celebrate her big 75th!

Mornin' everybody,

It's so cold here that the computer wouldn't even let me get on the website this morning. So I had to go to work. An exhaust fan belt broke up on the roof, so I had to go outside and tear the enclosure apart to find the broken belt. It's -11F out there, so I didn't spend too much time out there. Hopefully, I can't find another belt so I don't have to go back up there. <G>

I'm leaving work at 1:00 this afternoon so I can go home and pack. Don't laugh! I told you I wait 'till the last minute. <VBG> Then at 5:00, we fly off towards Ft Lauderdale, via Philadelphia. We don't get in till late, so we'll miss the CM get together. Bummer!

Everybody have a great day, and a fabulous weekend. And we'll see you in a week!

Ed

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr....coldest day yet. Car expressed its displeasure at being made to operate in the weather, but was fine after warming up. Dogs showed little desire to go outside, preferring full bladders.

Keep Warm and have a great weekend!!!

Good morning from chilly, gloomy Southern California where mroe rain is predicted.

Not a happy time in this house. We are both very discouraged. Keith's short-term memory seems to be getting worse instead of better. He notices it, as well. He ruined not only dinner last night but what would have been left-overs for the next two nights. The food had to be thrown out.

What was supposed to be a pleasant day for us yesterday turned into a trial. One of our pleasures used to be shopping together. No more! Keith practically crawls along and won't go any faster. Not because he can't but because he won't. Grocery shopping is the same way.

He's got the bank account on the computer all messed up, too. Computers? Oh yes, he's got them messed up also.

Yes, I know it could be a lot worse. But ut could be a lot better, too. Okay, I'll stop complaining now.

Judy

Good morning everyone:

Mary Lou: Your alter ego is showing up. :-) Even a good workout can't get rid of all those cookies. <VBG>

I hope you have a FANTASTIC cruise. Do me a favor, look around the balcony partition and stick your tongue out at them. <VBG> After that introduce yourself and explain that someone you know was "supposed" to be in that cabin.

I also would like to say howdy to all who will be at the Marriott. I will be there in spirit.

Today will be an exciting day. Our new bed will be arriving. ooh. We are finally going the King size route. I guess Betty is finally tired of the elbow in the ribs. :-)

Judy, I know that the changes from the medication and the stroke are frustrating. Betty and I deal with it every day. I do not move as fast as I used to and I go through mood and personality swings that are very unlike the way I used to be. We both have accepted that life isn't what it used to be and probably will never be that way again. Hang in there kiddo and keep your chin up.

Take care,
Mike

I hope everyone made it or makes it for the cruise. Reports coming in about a huge ice storm hitting Atlanta and it is not known when the airport might have to close or flight delays or cancellations. I hope all our 'mate' get there safely and have a wonderful cruise.

It's 10:11PM at the moment and I imagine that the party is in full swing. I'm also envious of your view of the pier Kuki! The ships coming up to Ft. Lauderdale have left their private beaches and are really trucking towards the Port. Somewhere around midnight or 1 AM, those passengers might start seeing birds flying, and more lights in the distance as the Keys are being passed.
If anyone of you gets up really early, or is still up around 5AM, the sight of the ships coming in is awesome. The Caribbean Princess will be waiting out in the ocean for the pilot boats. You will see her come in between 5:15 and 5:30 AM. She will either come straight in or hang a left and back in to her spot. She is beautiful with her lights on at that time of morning. We've been there to see it.

So, if any of you see this in the AM--another Bon Voyage-have a wonderful time!! Lynne
