  1. No more restaurant stewards ..... which for us means the one who completely ignored us until the last evening . Now the waiters we’ve had for the majority of our cruises have been phenomenal and that’s what has made our dining experience memorable.
  2. This made me laugh and cry simultaneously
  3. Thank you! The feral cat was adopted and lived a great life for 18 years, best cat ever ❤️
  4. Yes I did and fast forward into the future, it’s been 32 years of a wonderful life!
  5. I was contacted by Aubrey from Cruise Critic about a reporter who was doing an article on virtual cruising and she saw my thread from March and wanted to interview me. Was I interested? Heck yeah! She called me last week and asked a bunch of questions and here’s a link to the article, sure has been the highlight of my month! https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/travel/cruise-enthusiasts-stage-their-own-faux-voyages-at-home/2020/08/27/c2b20850-e3e9-11ea-8181-606e603bb1c4_story.html
  6. We don’t always suck. Oh wait, yes we do!
  7. Went to restaurant for the first time today (Michigan ), tables were spread apart and wait staff wore masks but I just didn’t enjoy the experience. I can’t imagine going on a cruise anytime soon but if there’s an effective vaccine then maybe we won’t lose our lift and shift deposit for November 2021.
  8. #1 Cayman Islands #2 Aruba The thought of sitting on the beach looking at the crystal blue Caribbean with a tropical drink in my hand sounds wonderful to me!
  9. Good to know! It’s a David Yurman piece and it’s actually on sale.
  10. We collected the glasses on our first cruise, couldn’t tell you where they are now. My memory includes my husband cleaning the balcony window every day to get the best views possible!
  11. Received email from them regarding a sale and I see something that I like from a well known designer, I have a few of his pieces so I know the quality of his work. Anyone ever call and order anything? I’ve tried on the piece several months ago at the mall so I know exact sizing.
  12. See more of the U.S. especially the national parks. Since two of our cruises have been cancelled we rented a condo in South Haven, Michigan right on Lake Michigan and late fall a Traverse City trip. We are lucky to have beautiful lakes here and right now enjoying our boat on Lake St. Clair. Only problem is that I have to make my own meals and cocktails lol but at least there are no chair hogs!
  13. I canceled March 9th which was right before RCL canceled my late March cruise, called a few times (at least 2 hour wait time) and got the “we are working on it check your email “ talk. Had it in the back of my mind and just got an email two days ago with my credit which is good until end of 2021.
  14. Rochester Hills here, this weather sucks!
  15. It’s like paying to be quarantined with a fantastic view 😀
  16. Just like the old posts about lifeguards at every pool, never thinking we’d be talking about elevator guards.
  17. This is the longest my hair has been in years and I actually like how it’s growing out and luckily my highlights are still decent though I’m ready for a touch up. Hubby has got a nice beard starting and he looks like a bad boy, I kind of like it 😏
  18. I’ve been wondering if there’s any security at Labadee, every time we sail away you see workers staying behind. Thought the same about CocoCay but mostly Labadee.
  19. Awww you made my day, thank you. I have good days and bad days just like everyone else but trying to stay optimistic and feel blessed that everyone in our family is healthy and has been able to keep their jobs, except for me. 25% of Michigan is unemployed and luckily my husband is still working, the curve is slowly starting to flatten as long as everyone stays home.
  20. I make that a lot, love it since it reminds me of my childhood
  21. I’m on unpaid leave right now and just filed for unemployment, DH working from home so he’s no fun during the day. Cooking and baking was fun the first two weeks but not so much anymore. Have watched more Netflix and Amazon Prime shows than I can ever remember, today is the first day in awhile where we have a sunny warm day so long outside walk felt good, been doing YouTube workouts at home. Getting kinda anxious as we are down to 5 Blue Moons, half a bottle of tequila, quarter bottle of bourbon and one bottle of wine. I’m staying home since I have asthma so DH has been doing something he neve
  22. Go Blue!! We will however gladly leave the Detroit Lions shirts behind 😏
