Drats on the 2/23 Navigator! DD and I leave for Breckenridge during the middle of that week. Time to go freeze instead of enjoy the sunshine. We have good friends who have a quarter share in a condo there and that is their February week. Em skis with Roger (her "second" father) and Jeanne and I catch up in depth on the last year and enjoy window shopping.
Hopefully, it wasn't noro. This is the second time in about three weeks that I've gotten sick after eating something really rich just before bedtime. I did stay in the cabin for a full 24 hours since I remember that is what the med center told you to do just in case. (I am glad I didn't go because at least I could sleep without being awakened by calls seeing if I was still in the cabin.) The day after was Labadee and we rented a cabana up and away from the crowds. Chip had an immediate reaction to those cute little shrimps on the next to last day, so I think it was those little critters that got to him. We had roommates and neither of them got sick.
Another drats to the fact that my body has apparently added chocolate to the list of things it can no longer tolerate. No alcohol and now this! kicker, I don't know if you remember my eating all the vestiges of your flourless (aka Royal) chocolate cake on our Liberty cruise? I walked past plates of it last Saturday night.
I do remember your chocolate cravings, and also the tip on Honey Chicken on the first day's buffet (wonder if the buffet has changed in recent years?). Alcohol: I have one beer these days and I'm half loaded. Had a beer last week for the first time in prob 3 months. Of course, we live in Wine Country, but I'm not a wine drinker either. I always enjoyed the party boats, but I don't know how I'd handle that stuff now (not that I handled it well before
By the way, how's Em's love life? Last I remember, I think, she'd broken up with someone after a while, or was that your son, or both?
Tanya keeps to herself; Chris, for the 2nd time in six months, has broken up with his girlfriend (Barb & I are doing cartwheels!). She's a nice girl, but totally fits the definition of dumb blonde and comes with a lot of family drama. Loralie really liked her, that's the only bad part.
As of right now (2PM), I'd say our chances of crusing Feb 23 are about 90%. More on that later....
