Default YIKES! I'm only 5 days away!

My countdown clock says I'm only 5 days away from sailing and I'm not ready!!
I haven't even started to pack, and the panic is starting to set in! Good thing I have the day off on Tuesday, maybe I'll get it done then!

BTW, anyone going to be in Miami Thurs. and Fri. Dec. 1st and 2nd?
We'd love to meet any Florida Mates who may be around!

You are so lucky! I sometimes wonder if the countdown clock causes even more agony, but it seems to go fairly quick. I started my clock at 196 days and I plan to celebrate at 150, 125, 100, etc.

OMG, Donna! Did you find the XXXL suitcase so I can stow away? Just leave a few crackers and water and I'll be fine.

Get packing, girl!

Even the panic is fun, isn't it. You'll do just fine. I can't wait to read your review.

Wow Donna, so even veteran cruisers get anxious?! I'm now a SDM and sail this coming Sunday on the Conquest and have chewed all my nails off! Not really, but I do find myself going over my list again and again and worrying about any little thing.

To make matters worse, DH hurt his back this weekend playing with all the kids at Thanksgiving. He's in bed today and I left him with strict instructions not to do anything.

Congratulations and I look forward to reading how your cruise goes (great I'm sure!).

Angela

Hi:

I can feel your excitement from here. I have 30 days before our cruise on the Dawn Princess to Mexico for NY Eve. I've been packing for a long time now....but still have more to do. Can't tell I'm anxious packing way ahead of time huh? Looking forward to your review and have a great time.

Happy cruising....Buddy

Donna,

You can express pack:

Passport:
Credit Card:
$100 US:
Bathing Suit:
Meds:
Black Dress
Shoes:
Underwear:

Now you're set. You can buy anything else you need onboard or in the first port.

So have a good cruise: Don't worry be happy, and enjoy the new wardrobe. You don't need no stinkin documents.

Take care,
Mike

My "Michelle" doll is starting to look like a "Donna" doll now. I just got back from sharpening all the pins. If you feel a good, sharp pain in the bum during your cruise, you KNOW Cynic's thinking about you.

Mike and Cynic, you guys are too funny! Hmmm, Express Pack, I like the idea! And I'll watch out for bum pain Cynic, and know who to blame!
I have managed to put off packing (and ironing for another day, but tomorrow is it! Got the day off, and all the last minute errands, and packing will be done! I am looking forward to getting away from this weather!

Donna,
One other word of advice. Don't show up at the pier at 10:00 AM.

Have fun,
Mike
