    Well, time draws near.

    I'm working like a crazed woman today and tomorrow, and then will be working like a crazed woman on vacation getting the final things ready for our upcoming cruise and visitors.

    We cleaned the house over the weekend, and let me tell you! SHEESH! How can two women, who are fairly neat and tidy have so much to clean? At any rate, the company will be able to eat from the floors and if so moved, drink from the commodes. :D OK, so that's a little over the top.

    Have done all the laundry, and now need to decide what to wear. May seem an easy task, but I have one (count them ONE) pair of decent capris that I'll be seen wearing in public and no I'm not shopping for more before the cruise. :D

    We have amassed what will probably be the best pirate outfits this side of the Caribbean. :D :D So that's done.

    Need to collect up all the sundries, sunscreen, bug repellent, and the like.

    The guests start arriving on Wednesday, but they are all staying at Disney until we return from the cruise.

    I have to get out there and get a birthday gift for Herself. She's the HARDEST person to buy a present for.

    I have this sense of growing anxiety that we are forgetting something really important, or heading off without knowing some essential fact... I guess I just don't know what to expect with a Disney cruise (then I wonder why am I worried about it- it's not like we haven't cruised before).

    The food for the night prior to embarkation (at the Grand Villa) has been ordered. We pick that up on Saturday, and bring it with us to Grand Villa. We'll be nearby in a studio. We have to pick up Herself's mother and aunt after mass on Saturday and bring them to the GV. We have to pick up three of the nieces/nephews Saturday afternoon at MCO and then return for two more at 6:00 ish PM ... once all that is done, we'll probably collapse and sleep and miss the vans we have coming for transport to the Port on Sunday morning!

    So! Any last words of advice, or recommendations, or "don't forgets" or "need to knows" please tell me now!!!

    Passport, tickets, money. They're the ones that you really need. Everything else you can sort out on the credit card Tink, have the most fantastic time, don't fall overboard (or push anyone over ) Just relax, eat, drink and be very merry.

    Thank you for your excellent advice Slowhand!!!!

    For some reason, I'm totally nervous about this cruise/vacation. Too many people, I guess... too many chances to have missed planning/covering something that someone wants...

    Camera. Yes. Must remember the camera... do I have a camera?
