Default We're packed and ready to GO!

Mrs. Kuki got everything packed... and for two cruises, the magician fit everything into 3 bags! Even found some room from some sovenir gift stuff.

We'll see how much room we have after 3 days in Florida

It's FINALLY here! Tomorrow at noon we're southward bound. Nice thing is snow and cooling temps in the forecast for tomorrow, and the next few days. Always nice to leave when a bit of winter sets in.

Can't wait to see a BUNCH of you Friday night at Lombardis at BaySide MarketPlace!! And the rest of you onboard Saturday!

Let the New Year's Party begin! 8) 8)

As I just told Linda, I'm waiting to kick the relatives out so I can pack the garment bags and get the heck out of town. It's going to be fun!!!!!!

See some of you on Friday and the rest, Saturday on board the Century.

Take care,
Mike

See you in Miami, Jo! I can't wait to see you!

I am 98% packed (but will need to use the pressing service on board.) Heading out early Friday AM and hope to be in Miami by 3:00 at the latest.

This is starting to sound like a project update meeting.

98%, 90% completed but somehow there is still this last minute rush to make deadline. I think it's human nature to procrastinate.

HECK, THIS IS FUN NOT WORK!!!!!!

Take care and see you in 48 hours.
Mike

I have stuff stacked in piles on the dresser, on the ironing board in my spare bedroom and I really do need to get my suitcase out! :-)

I'll pack tomorrow night, I leave for the airport at 7:30 on Friday a.m.

Can't wait to see everyone at Lombardi's!!!

The cruise is finally real to me! We can't wait to get onboard and meet everyone!!!

My stuff is washed, ironed, folded and all laid out ready for the suitcase. Just waiting for hubby to get his stuff out of the way so I can spread out and get it done - maybe tomorrow! Also want to take the tree down and clean up the house before we leave, because I'm sure I won't want to do it when we get home!
I can't believe it's almost here! See most of you Fri. night at Lombardi's, and the rest of you Sat. onboard!!

The journey has begun!

I have now been deposited in my hotel room, near the airport. Betty is off for her last night at work. I have nine hours to kill until she returns for a few hours sleep and then it's a 7:19 a.m. flight to Miami.

So far there hasn't been any "Oh darns", meaning we forgot something. That's a good thing.

Take care,
Mike (Who wishes this place had better TV selections.)
