Today is the cut off to sign up for the Fish Extenders!


Can you believe it is 45 days till we are on the cruise??? (43 days until we are on vacation!!!) So exciting!!!

I am ALMOST finished with all the FE bags!!! I worked on it ALOT last night. Just need to finish it off today, and wait for DH to finish his part of the family gifts that we are making...just have the new sign ups to finish with!!! He said he'd try to do that tonight! And just need to finish putting magnets on our door magnets!!! I'm really trying to get that "extra" stuff done by this weekend!!!

Then it's on to figure out the clothes and other things we still need to buy! I hate waiting until the last minute to pack things or do things....so I'm really hoping to get most everything done and packed as soon as I can!!

It sort of dawned on me last night that I've spent all my time getting things ready for the cruise, and for me to go to Omaha for the baby's birth, I forgot that I'm supposed to be getting my son ready to go to Europe in June.
Luckily, as soon as they gave us a suggested packing list, I'd started picking things up for him. I still need to take him to the mall for clothes (I'll have to drag him kicking and screaming!) and go order his foreign currency.... I ordered his International Calling Card last night.....

I guess along with putting tags on the FE's this weekend, (or at night this week) I'll also be putting together his first aid kit and some of the other things I can do ahead of time for him.

You have a lot going on - get him to do your tags while you do his things

HA! He didn't even help me with them when we took our Mother/Son cruise. Not with the tagging or the delivering. Someone needs a swift kick.

And you are so lucky to live in FWB, that's our home town! DH and I both graduated from FWBHS...in fact my 30th reunion (gulp!) is this fall (Homecoming). I grew up on Okaloosa Island, DH lived in Destin. I have no more family ties to the area and I sure so miss it. Hopefully, I'll get to make the reunion..

I think I mentioned that after we signed dh back up for the cruise, our excursion was sold out, so he can't join us on that.

It's okay, he'll still be onboard, but if anyone cancels the Doubloon Sail and Snorkel, or if anyone notices an opening, would you mind posting here and saying so?

Thanks for the help!

I can't believe the cruise is so close now -

Wish I had the time to particpate with the FE exchange but I've been working 60 hours a week and DH 72 + hours a week (no, that's not a typo)since the beginning of March (long story short - we work at a power plant -it was refueling time!) I just went back to my normal 9 hour days this week and hopefully DH will go back to his sometime next week (we work 9 hour days and get to take every other Friday off - yeah!)

Need to get my home and surroundings back in to shape, spring clean, get ready for the cruise and find some time to relax in between. Boy, when this cruise comes around we are going to be SOOOOOO ready!

Anyway, please let me know if we are having a meet and greet onboard or in the terminal, I would love to get the chance to meet everyone !

That is too funny, my kids are FWBHS grads. I work in Destin. We love it here, do miss the fall, and the big city for somethings but not enough to go back up north.

I know what you mean...I miss it terribly - the last time we were there was in Apr. 06. Destin has grown so much...I remember when it was just a little bitty fishing town and when there used to be NOTHING along the road from Destin to Sandestin. While my Dad wasn't AF, he was always working with them (worked on smart bombs dropped by F-4's,15's,etc.) and hence we moved every 4-6 years to a new base (lived in Germany and Israel too!) Eglin was definitely our favorite!
