    Awww! So pleased for you and Jon, Becca. You surely do deserve a nice break after the many long, stress filled months you've put in. I hope you have an incredible time! Will be looking forward to hearing about the cruise in particular. We've not been on a Carnival, so your impressions will be very valuable.

    I am so looking forward to a few days of doing absolutely nothing :) I've been stocking up on books, and I've warned Jon he'd do well to do the same! :wink:

    We made our list of "must try" foods in EPCOT and have started making packing lists :)

    HAHA, indeed they can be. Ironically, (and not to offer TMI) Jon and I tend to be "very romantic" all the time...so when we go on vacation, I do encourage him to find other things to entertain himself with (besides me!). I swear I am never so interesting to that man as when I am reading a book! More the truth when I'm at the REALLY good bits of the book.

    Typical conversation:
    I, noticing that Jon is deeply involved in watching a cooking show and enjoying a glass of wine, pick up a paperback I've been trying to finish for weeks and become completed ensconced. Jon, noticing such, immediately ceases what he's doing and scoots as close as possible to me.
    Whatcha doin'?
    Reading.
    Oh. I see. What's it about?
    It's about 300 pages in, I'm not circling back for you now, dear. I'll be done in 10 minutes, ok?
    *sigh* Ok, but I really want to play mini golf. (in a tone that implies mini golf is his only hope for continued existence)

    SMH.

    Becca, from someone who has seen you both together, you are very romantic towards each other. Your relationship reminds me of the first throws of love, when you have just met and fallen in love and everything is perfect :hug2:

    Thanks, hon :hug2: You know, it's not what some would call the perfect life, but it is certainly the perfect life for us.

    Ringing endorsement for never tying the knot if ever there was one, eh? :wink:

    (I know, I know!! Make an honest man out of him, they say! It'll be great, they say! Quit dragging your feet, they say!)

    Nothing would change between you if you tied the not. You are who you are and nothing is going to change either of you because of a piece of paper, you'll still be the same.

    Put the poor man out of his misery and make his dream come true. Maybe the ship's captain could do the honours :wink: :lol:

    OH!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

    Guess what?!!?! The owner of the company Jon works for (very small firm) came to him today with his vacation request in hand...Jon thought he was going to say they were too busy for him take off, but NO...instead, he gave Jon (and I) a tidy little bonus check!! He said it was in recognition of all the extra work we have put in lately!! (I occasionally do a bit of web work for them.)

    Can you say CRUISE MASSSAGE AND DRINK PACKAGE?!?! :bounce: :bounce:

    I do believe it was the best thing that's happened this week! Martini's taste even better when they're on someone else's tab!

    Now I know I'm in the Twilight Zone.

    Companies don't thank their employees!

    How nice is that, Becca?! So pleased for you both. I surely hope their massage services are wonderful! You know I really enjoyed the spa services onboard Norwegian. :yes:

    Martinis are lovely no matter who is paying for them! :D :D

    It's gotten rave reviews so far! And with the "private entrance" from our spa room, we can just sashay right in wearing our robes and slippers!

    I can't argue with that logic at all!!![/quote][/quote]

    hahahaha, of course (maybe. yes. probably.) :) Funny thing is, I've been wondering how on EARTH I'm going to make it for a week without talking to you lot! Luckily, I won't have to :) We've added an international data package to our phone lines :)

    Becca that's excellent news, Jon certainly works for a good employer, I can't imagine Chris' lot doing something like that :lol:

    This cruise is just getting better and better, you really won't want to come home after it. The massage sounds wonderful :D

    Anyway Miss, you are on vacation, you should be making the most of the facilities and Martinis, not popping in here :D
