It's time to get serious

As you can see, the suitcase is out, open and sitting on two chairs in the dining room so I can get to it easily.  I'm starting to pack, putting in things I do not need to use the next few days.  Like bug repellent and sun screen.

Lynnette, the gal that is sharing a cabin with me, called today and when I answered the phone, she said in this real whinny voice "I can't go on the cruise."  Well, that got my attention and I asked her why not.  She told me that she went for a hair cut yesterday evening and the gal that cut it, got it so short she now looks like a guy.  Well, I informed her that she had some other physical attributes that prove she's not a guy and that she probably looked just fine, and even if she didn't, she needed to suck it up and start packing.  Actually, having real short hair might be to her advantage, since it takes me about 15 minutes to dry mine...she can just towel dry hers and call it good.   She won't be getting in my way, in the bathroom every morning. :)    LOL 

Here's my itinerary for this big event.

We report to the Royal Caribbean dock in Seattle at 2pm Friday, August 11th and depart at 5pm.  We are at sea all day Saturday, heading up thru Puget Sound, down the Strait of Juan de Fuca, turn north and cruise on the outer side of Vancouver Island (that's the part I got the Dramamine for).  Sunday morning (August 13th) we arrive in Juneau at about 11am, we are there until 11pm.  Monday, August 14th we arrive at Skagway at 7am, leaving there at 8:30pm.  Tuesday, August 15th we arrive at Icy Strait Point at 7am and we'll be there until 4pm.   Wednesday, August 16th we will be cruising the Inside Passage all day. Thursday, August 17th we arrive in Victoria, BC at 2pm, departing from there at 7:30pm.    Friday, August 18th we arrive in Seattle at 7am, broke, tired, fatter but happy after having enjoyed this extraordinary experience.  

Ok, my kitty has already gone down the hall and I'm going to go join her.  Linda

Hi Linda,  it sounds so exciting!  I hope you have a fantastic time and very calm seas.  I`m the same as you and start packing early so I don`t have a last minute rush.  I don`t suppose you have room in your suitcase for me?....lol!  :o)

It all sounds wonderful, wish I could come.  I had mega short hair when I holidayed in Spain years ago, it could not have been any shorter but, believe me, I attracted the boys like moths to a flame, they loved it, so tell your friend.

I've never been on a cruise but one to Alaska is one that would be high on my list to do

enjoy every minute of it

I'm so envious.  It's going to be a fabulous time.  My husband was stationed in Alaska while in the Army and just loved it up there. We have talked about going up there for years.  Maybe someday. Who will be taking care of your kitty?
