Come Sail Away

Yesterday our next vacation was booked. As stated in a previous post, we'll be going with the 'rents, Uncle Jerry and Aunt Diana, and it looks like J and Cass will be coming too. We're going at the end of September to the Eastern Caribbean on a 7 day cruise. Oh, I so want it to be here now. We were originally looking at cruises in February of next year but mom presented us with this one. In all honesty we've been hesitant to go on a cruise with family just for the simple fact that we like to do things on our own. You know, get lost, have adventures, etc. But I think this should be awesome. Something to keep in mind is that most often you aren't with everyone at all times like on a normal vacation. We'll see them here and there and then at dinner, but not 24/7. In addition, Uncle Jerry and Aunt Diana know what they're doing when it comes to shore excursions. However, instead of paying for the cruise's excursions they venture out on their own since they're comfortable with the areas. Thankfully we'll just purchase our own snorkel gear for the trip, tag along with them, and have our own personal excursions minus having to pay the big bucks. I'm just hoping and praying that our bad luck from Hawaii doesn't continue on to this vacation. I'm sure all of our co-travelers are thinking the same thing. If not, we can just make a sequel to our first movie. Just kidding! We're going to have a blast. Next up....Got to get passports.

David was to start his boilers class tonight but with the snow it looks like it will be cancelled. The snow has started falling and poor David has been our shoveling for 40-45 minutes. Yikes! And there's already a dusting where he's already shoveled. All the local schools are closed for the day. As of this moment I don't think the roads are all that bad (haven't been on them yet) but it's supposed to continue snowing throughout the day. Depending on what you read they're saying anywhere from 8-12 inches of snow. Of course we're not directly in the Cleveland area so this may be a higher estimation than what we will really get, but you never know. We'll both head into work and see what happens.

In catching up on entertainment news I saw that Dog The Bounty Hunter's show will be coming back on air. That's no big surprise. We knew it was going to be one of those things where they let things calm down and then start taping again. I'm still a fan despite what happened and hope to catch some of the new episodes.

Hope everyone stays safe with the snow. For those of you in non-snow zones, hope you're enjoying the sunshine =)

Hi Heidi.
Just checked the pool temperature and it is 86 so I better start practicing my snorkelling!!! Keep in mind the tour guide likes tips. Can't wait for what will be a great vacation. Uncle Jer

Can't wait. Just don't want to get too excited so early. I'm ready to go NOW. Blue skies, warm ocean breezes, beautiful sunsets, and great company...can't ask for more than that.

I wouldn't say "great company" ...remember, cass and I haven't cruised with Uncle Jerry yet.

Sure wish I could go on what looks to be a family cruise (like I've talked about for years now), but it is Alyssa's 18th Birthday on Sept 30 in the middle of the cruise. So I can't miss that. I know you guys will have an excellent time though. Camie

My Birthday is in the middle of the cruise, too...and you are going to miss that.
