Eek! Less than two weeks until vacation time!

I think the title says it all. We are now less than two weeks to go until we will be getting dressed up for the first formal night. I'm so excited! Work has definitely helped as it keeps me busy from the time I clock in until the time I clock out. From helping out other team members to doing my work and hitting my numbers I stay busy. We only have one more full work week left and then next week we have 2 1/2 days and will be heading to Kingwood once we get our of work on Friday at 7pm. We will probably stop off in Giddings at the whataburger that is right off the freeway. It's a great potty stop and pick up some food to nosh on as I'm sure we will be starving. I will work on getting all the non-essientals packed next weekend. Things like make-up, curlers, suntan lotion, bathing suits, shorts, etc. Then on Friday before we go to work I will finish packing us up. I might work on it when we get home on Thursday after work as well instead of waiting on friday. Knowing my luck I would forget something and would be frantic.

Tomorrow we are going to run some errands and finish up on the last pre cruise stuff before I start the packing. We went to Barnes and Noble this last week and stocked up on some books and magazines for the trip. Ian even got him a book to read. It's by the guy that did the Jason Bourne stuff. I think we might even try to go see a movie as well since there are a few out that we wouldn't mind seeing. We will see though. It all depends on how the day goes and what time we wake up in the morning. I'm not going to stress over it too much.

I ordered chocolate covered strawberries and champagne to be delivered to the room as a surprise for Ian on embarkation day so they should be in the room when they open up the rooms for us to go drop off stuff and check out.

We are in our first Aft balcony. We have one that is literally on the back of the ship and not just on the side past the midship location that they determine is aft. Nope....we are on the butt of the ship. LOL.

We should get some great pictures back there. The only thing that is bad about the voyager class ships and freedom ones is they have this superstructer that does block the view straight down like you get on the side balconies. But when we booked these and they were available we couldn't pass it up. I have always wanted to try one out and we are on deck 9 where the structure doesn't impose as much on you and you can look straight out and not be blocked by a steel structure. We will see though. If we don't like it then we can at least say we tried it and spend time on the ship instead of the balcony. However I have a feeling I will still spend time out there because it's supposed to be a huge balcony.

Awww...tick...tock...tick...tock...can't this countdown go any faster.

That's all for now...
