Breathe, Brian, Breathe!

Ok, this is not a full blown panic attack, but dang, leaving for the cruise 5 days from now. I THINK almost every conceivable situation has been thought through, Jack Bauer is on standby and he even approved our first aid kit. Suit checked to make sure it still fits, swimwear packed. We are starting to pack items as the days get closer. I have enough meds packed (for me anyways) for 14 days, just in case we get stranded going or coming in car etc.

DW is pretty chilled out about everything, I have directions printed to and fro, Uber XL Luxury with a reservation for hotel to port.

Got to get through Chris's graduation ceremony tomorrow and then 2.5 days of work!

Brian, know it will all go as planned and all this worry will be for naught. Breathe in....breathe out. breathe in... breath out... repeat......

Brian are you a planner like me? I drive my DH nuts! We actually talked about it this weekend and he said that he has just gotten to the point where he accepts that this is who I am. Big Smile

Thanks! Just SO ready to go! Oh yea, I like to plan, try to make sure I have the i's crossed and t's dotted :) DW likes to pack, I like to plan.

I do BOTH. He likes to wait til the night before or the day of to pack and drives me nuts.

The graduation would be driving me nuts, let alone the cruise!!

I miss having my kids at home, but I do not miss prom, graduation, weddings, any of the milestone events. May the force be with you :)

Don't over think something. That's where mistakes happen. Just pack grab your boarding pass, passport and cash and credit card and just go.

Why be so wired up about those things? LOL You plan, the day happens, and you get to enjoy every minute even if for some reason there's a glitch or two. It's all part of the fun. Happy

Brian, you are going to have a heart attack! I think I had better go on the cruise instead, it's just too stressful for you. Big Smile

Thanks everyone!

Really, it is not that bad (where can I get explosive-tipped arrows and a mini-bow?). The graduation is not bothering me much, just shoot me, but it is just another over-pompous ceremony with too many speakers, even Chris is not too excited about it. Danyl had her sleep study last night, I ironed the graduation gown, so that is ready. Restless night sleep, up at 5 AM to pick Danyl up and have breakfast at the hotel the hospital owns. Ok, after having breakfast there the Lido breakfast does not look so bad!!!

You guys sure will appreciate walking onto the ship and just R E L A X I N G. Can you say "Aahhhhhh.........."?

I know all will be well! :)
