It's the little pleasures that make day to day life supportable.

I'm glad you adding that ... otherwise, I might have had to go against my nature and say something verging on rude.

You? NEVER!

You know, this dumb furlough we are doing isn't too painful when it's just one day per pay period. But when I think about the TOTAL take-home I'm out for the quarter....it's the same amount as my park hopper and dining plan. That's a PISSA!

Hi there,

Its good to see you on here. I remember you were on our cruise. I didn't realize you had switched to this one.

For us this works out better because the one thing I wanted to do was the Baths at Virgin Gorda and DCL has an age limit of 5 and up (although I know DD would cope as she is a little "rock monkey", DCL have to stick to their age limits). The $$$ savings also helps :-)

Good question. I am fine doing whatever everyone wants.

On our cruises we have had some people listed on page one who got DISer name tags, buttons or t-shirts but then when I approached them on the ship to introduce myself, they had no idea who I was or why I would want to meet them. Those who have chatted on the thread have a different connection.

I am not sure what to do about our kids. They are going on this cruise but not posting. When we cruised with them before we did not go to DISer gatherings, we did family things.

What have others experienced with DISer's friends?
Is being on page one a good idea or not?
What info shall we post?

I pack a long skirt and a couple pretty blouses. Maybe a shawl or fancy jacket. Not a gown but not a street dress. Tom has never rented a tux since our wedding. He packs a dark sports coat and wears it with dark slacks for semi-formal and formal nights with a tie and white shirt.

Our insurance is costly and doesn't cover much. We are in search of a cheaper place to get the scan, but from the sounds of it, I guess the resulting answer is surgery, which I'm sure he isn't going to be happy for.

Good luck for those also suffering with these nose/sinus issues.

How is Paul doing today?

We are Kay, Neil, DS Arran (who will be 9 on the cruise) and DD Iona (who will turn 5 on 9/12/09).

We are currently on 2nd dining, but waitlisted for main. We will probably be spending a week in Kissimmee prior to the cruise - staying offsite in a vacation rental, but the fine details are yet to be worked out!

This is our second cruise on DCL.

We look forward to getting to know you all.

--Kay

p.s. certainly up for a FE Exchange if one is going on, the kids certainly loved it last time!


p.p.s Guess I need to update my sig - where can I find the graphic for this cruise?
Welcome aboard.

You are now included on page 1 post 1. Asterisk in front of your line means we know you are with us. Please double check to be sure I got it right. Check what others have shared and decide if you want more added.

Post photos here and I will move them into post 2 if you want.

Here is the thumbnail from my photobucket of the logo:

Anyone having trouble with Facebook today? I have not been able to sign in all evening and there are new pictures of Sophie on there. When I try, I get a stuck webpage window that stays white and when I try to close it I end up losing every webpage I have open--and I usually have a lot open at once.

Can you say ANNOYING ??

Turned out the earlier cruise clashed with my DS's first serious set of public exam results (GCSEs) and he wanted to be home to receive them - bless! Sooo we switched our WDW trip to Easter and pushed the cruise into September. As he's back at school by then, it's become an adults-only anniversary cruise for DH and myself...
