Another end to a great weekend.
This is the last weekend before the cruise so this was the last day to really get everything set up and complete. I was going to get my mani/pedi done today but decided to wait 'til Wednesday for that, just to make sure my chubby little Fred Flintstone feet are still fresh.
Dropped over at Dillard's and bought a cute and functional wide-brimmed hat. It looks like straw but is plastic so I won't have to worry about it crumpling and being destroyed in the suitcase. It's wide enough to cover my face and chest, so along with a liberal amount of sunscreen, it should help me not be burned. The first time I took a cruise I returned with a bad case of sun poisoning. All because I thought Black people didn't get sunburn. I've learned my lesson in sun bathing. Twice.
I also picked up some Clinique and sale costume jewelry today. I love jewelry and Macy's and Dillard's always have great selections. And, when these two stores have sales, they really mean sales and I can always find bargains if I shop during a sale.
My brother in Idaho is so nervous, and I'm tickled. This is his first cruise. He's always been afraid of cruising so when he decided to come with us on this one, everyone was in shock. When his passport arrived he was soooo happy! I spoke with him this afternoon and tried to help calm him down. He's read about the cruise ship that was hit by a rogue wave and it's bothering him. I've been assuring him that before this cruise is over, he will be planning the next one. I'm believing we'll have a great time.
Aside from Dramamine and Immodium Ad tabs, I'm all set to begin packing. Tomorrow I'll list the outfits I'll be taking with me, and Tuesday the actual packing begins. As always I'm cool, organized and prepared. My only concern is whether I really needed to buy seven pairs of sandals. Oh well, I'll return the pairs I don't take with me.
