So here is my packing question of the day: DH does not want to bring a suit or jacket or even a tie. I think he has resigned himself to the tie now, and I'm trying to convince him to bring one suitcoat. His argument is that he will just remove his jacket at dinner and hang it on the back of his chair, so why bother to bring it? He has a point, I admit. That is exactly what he will do. So, tell me, on Disney formal nights, do most men wear a jacket? On our last non-Disney cruise, he was fine with a dress shirt and tie only.

December 9th will get here soon enough. We had a great 4th of July (with Disneyland being so close, we get to see fireworks all summer long) and we couldn't ask for nicer weather. Temperatures in the high 70's / low 80's and a slight ocean breeze. Life is good!
You're certainly having a busy summer. What an amazing cross country triip for your scouts - certainly you'll be visiting the Low house among other attractions.

Hopefully the applications will be in the mail sometime this week. We're going to expedite them, just to make sure that we have them in hand before the final cruise payment is due.
Yours will probably go more smoothly than you expect since you've likely got your docs together already from the adoptions, right? That is the situation the mother of two of my "borrowed" grandchildren found - they're both from China and required a TON of paperwork.

My husband insists on taking a jacket which he usually wears for formal nights, semi formal and Palo. I tried to talk him out of it on the Hawaii, figuring he could get away with a Hawaiian shirt for everything, but no, he had to take it. Turns out, he only wore it once, preferring the Hawaiian shirts for everything else, including Palo.

What's everyone doing today?

Happy Sunday!

Good Morning Fellow Cruisers,

My DH has never brought suit or jacket. He will wear a "dressier" casual shirt on formal night. He believes in packing light because when we are at home, he likes to dress for those rare formal occasions. As one CM said, this is a Disney cruise .... whatever you want goes. So I would say - pack whatever makes him happy, and you know he will wear.

My DH will not be brinigng a jacket or suit either. He will wear a dress shirt and tie for the semi and formal nights. Your DH will not be out of place without a jacket, but you will see men in suits and Tuxs on formal night.

I'm sure your DH will be fine in whatever he wants to pack. My DH wears jeans and a polo to work everyday so he enjoys dressing up for dinner..He will wear a tie almost everynight with a blazer and plans on packing his tux and a suit or two for more formal nights but he gets cold and will wear the jacket the whole meal. I think this stems from the fact that our normal cruising group has two guys that dress up everynight..so sad they won't be joining us on this trip. On the other hand, my brother in law, who also wont be joining us, doesnt even know how to tie a tie! Bottom line, your DH will be fine in whatever he decides to pack

Well we didn't have any summer plans until my DH's brother called us last night to inform us that he is getting married in Iowa on August 10th. So looks like we might have to make a last minute trip. Nothing like a 1 month and 3 day notice! Grrrr and my DH wonders why I get annoyed with his family! They have been engaged since our wedding almost a year ago

Anyone else instantly smile when they see this pic?? I'm just so excited! I even became giddy when the Canal mule cars were shown as a Jeapordy question about a week ago.

Just a normal Sunday here for us. All 3 kids will go to church with grandma and grandpa. I am going to go to the cemetary for a little bit and then stop by Trader Joes on the way back. I love taking my time walking through TJs and this is best done with no kids in tow! The kids and I have had 2 relaxing weeks of hardly doing anything. There were a few days when the kids never even got out of their jammies! It all changes tomorrow with baseball camp and swim lessons starting. Back to a busy schedule!

Still not back on yet I tried to buck up and stay at the house last night thinking it would be cool enough overnight, but no such luck. Sleeping when it's that hot is just miserable. So I've already got somewhere else lined up tonight to sleep in case it's still not back on. What's ironic is that the people I'll be staying with actually stayed at my house 3 days last week while *their* power was out. Payback time!

Wow, I can not image not have AC over this hot spell. Our temperature broke last night. We turned off the AC around supper time, and today is a beautiful summer day. I believe the high is 25 celcius with no humidity.

At this point, not much planned for the summer. We may end up in Quebec for a long weekend to watch the Ironman race. If "the family" can get our act together, we will have a gathering in New Jersey in August. And then the big good byes to my daughter who is moving to Egypt for a year to teach. As the days get closer, reality hits. I will truly miss her. She may come home for Christmas, and meet us in Miami and visit our Florida relatives, and then back to Canada for the rest of her time off.

I agree with Jeff, I will not be planning much for this trip until the fall. I guess I should start thinking of FE.
What part of Egypt? My family is from Egypt and I still have a lot of family members still there. It is a wonderful place and want to take my children someday but just a little concerned with all of the political changes going on right now.

So glad you have somewhere to go to escape the heat. It truly is miserable when you can't sleep because of it being too hot. Besides, it can be pretty dangerous for your health. Hopefully your power will be back on soon.

She is going to 6th of October and teaching at SABIS. I have been worried about the political situation, but I have come to terms to her decision. She has an opportunity to teach in Antigua, but decided not to go. She has a girlfriend in Egypt who has been working at the school for the past two years. It will be a definite culture shock for her. She has worked in an orphanage in Nepal for a couple months while she was in university. But this is 10 months. We have friends who has family in Cairo - a doctor and a person in immigration, so that her network of support is building. My friend's son flies for NATO, so we have been teasing that Scottie will be my daughter's saviour if the violence increases.
