Good MOrning


Kare - I really don't hate it as long as I can open the door and get a breeze I am usually happy and it was 500 more pp to pick your balcony - I didn't want to do that - Charlie is really happy he is close to the pool and the buffet - not good for me because I can't eat at the buffet
I like Terry's diet - I have salad every day for lunch too but sometimes followed by potato chips and then a snack size butterfinger LOL that's why I don't lose weight but I am so addicted to choclate
Can I come to Shannans with you I want some cheesecake - I had a dream last night that I ate a regular cake and I got soooo sick - hope it does not mean I will get glutened on RCCL.

Iz - Thank you, thank you and thank you again I am so dumb about changing my date usually I can get rid of it but this time I could not even do that - oy getting old really sucks.
Hope your ankle is okay today

Udi - You should be home today - how was your trip

Anyway I will be around I was thinking of organizing a slot pull on ANthem but not sure I want all that work - hoping someone else will do it - .

A thunder storm woke me up at 8:30. We got half an inch of rain, I wonder if my lawn will start to turn green again.

Oeggy, don't they have gluten free stuff marked in the buffet? How about the salad bar in the buffet. I think I saw your room. It's right by the forward elevators isn't it? I like being by elevators, I hate walking down those halls forever. We were about halfway between the elevators on Harmony it was a long walk back to the room.

I like white rice better than brown rice, even though I know brown rice is better for me. Cauliflower is white but is okay? I know what you mean about guys losing weight. Before Om switched to nights I made our dinners more healthy, enough so Om even snuck treats and he lost weight not me. And now with his new jobs when we bought him new work pants they were smaller than he had worn in years. If we can find his blue blazer that we bought 15 years ago it will probably fit. So we might be able to use that for cruises.

Hoping its dry enough later to grill steaks. Now I have more laundry going and I vacuumed downstairs. Will have to wait til Om gets up to vacuum upstairs and iron.

I'll be around all day.

I think you lucked out and got a great room! You have other cabins above and below, so no noise concerns and close to elevators to go up or down. Is the solarium bistro a mini buffet like Harmony? There was a salad bar in the one on Harmony, that would be convenient. I want to try a Q class sometime, maybe the ne t one will sail out of Florida.

I did my ironing. Almost done with laundry. The race is going to start soon.

I'm still here.

Yes I am starting to think I should just keep the room -
Last cruise Charlie & I went to the solarium every morning for breakfast there were no crowds and it was so nice there - I could def. do that again

I wonder what small balcony means that's what my reservation says

On the deck plans it says your balcony is 55 square feet, the balcony of a D1 is 65 square feet.

I finally uploaded my pictures from Harmony. but I'm so bad at taking pictures I only took 70 pictures. And I can seem to get the flash to work correctly on my new camera, so some of the pictures are too bright

It's tini time. I'm waiting for Om to get home from his meeting then we'll decide if we want to sit on the deck. It still kind of damp out there.

Tomorrow we're going to a funeral in the morning. Then I'll try to get more cleaning done on my day off.
