Java, I want to come to your house, shrimp, grits, i'm all in!

Chuck's sister passed away yesterday, she had been suffering from Alzheimer's for the last 10 years. He will fly out for the funeral, if it is within the next two weeks. No immediate plans were made yesterday. But my boss decided to take the next two weeks off, and my lead, is off to Disney, and doesn't work well under stress. The new assistant manager doesn't start full time until the 8th, so-i'm on everyday until the 7th. Except for Tuesday-lead is in charge, and I have more blood tests.

we have tickets to the Christmas carol up at the cobb energy center today, and we have to do our stocking stuffer shopping this morning. so busy day today. and then my usual not fettuccini meal tonight-waffle house. I will also pick up a gift for the young lady that has been working at cobb for us-since she has been out of the office for almost a month working up there.

as far as a movie, the new star wars? jumanji jungle? chuck wants to go to Phipps to see a movie. I think it is ridiculous to pay more for a seat, but it is his wish. so I guess we will see what is playing there, and then choose.

Merry Christmas!

Friends, my beloved son, Greg died suddenly on Christmas night from endocarditis and heart failure. He was 40 years young. Always the outgoing, friendly, goofy one. There was much laughter where Greg was.

I know he is in Paradise with his heavenly Father. And I know I will see him again one day. But my heart is so broken.

That's all for now.

Hi friends. I can't believe it's 2018. Another year flew by.

I wanted to pop in and say check your cruise rates. I got a price reduction earlier In the week and a large one today.

Flo, you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers daily.

Banned from the Bunzl. I guess that could be the name of my last two weeks. My internet was banned at the Bunzl, an employee was physically banned from entering the building.

For the last two weeks, the woodruff was rewiring the electricity to our building, our bosses felt that we couldn't just close so they moved us to another building (the Bunzl) which is the museum's administrative office. There were 4 of us at a conference table in a room, 8 by 14. The upside, we had windows, the downside glare from the windows. To cut staff, we used half the office to work one week, and the other half to work the other week. I worked both weeks, Panda was going to work the second week, but she ended up getting a sinus infection, and bronchitis, so she was out the second week, and she will be out this up coming week. The boss came in yesterday to assist in the move back to the main building, and with two out, work flow picking up, I called in two employees that had been begging for work. But then the boss said, that was one too many, but she found work for one of them, I found work for the other one.and we moved the last stuff out of the Bunzl at 3:30. The banned employee was doing the right thing, but security didn't, and this affected us, as it was a strong guy, who could have really helped with moving. I will miss the windows, but not the space (lack of). All the other departments who had to move, basically worked from home, and the boss? She took two weeks vacation to stay home, and came in once, confused me with some faxing directions, and totally got mad, when I didn't do what she asked, but I am not sure what she asked. This happens when she tries to control something without giving me directions of what she wanted and needed done. She said if you get a chance, fax this, but accounting will be doing it. um. we don't have the faxes working on our copiers (that's why it didn't work) and I told her that, and I thought accounting was doing it since she couldn't. Um......

And that has been my last two weeks. I wrote a review of our cruise, but I don't think it was approved. As I never heard back after the first comment from CC.

Flo, I hope that you are doing well. I have been thinking of you and your family every day, and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Happy 2018! I hope that this will be a year of joy and inner peace for all of us.

My Elation Review was posted on CC today.

And why do I still have my Christmas lights up?

I'm taking a week of vacay, watched TV all day, and took a nap. Day one.

Thanks. Yesterday was TV and nap, and eat, and today I really need to start on cleaning the house. I woke this morning with the understanding that the cruise that I had booked in November needs to be changed. With Chuck now on a very fixed income, the amount spent for him to get to his sister's funeral, and me with a new boss (now there is someone between Terry and I) my hours will not be as abundant., a promised trip to go see Dan this year, I just wont be able to swing it. There are times that I hate reality.

We don't have ESPN, so we didn't watch the game last night, but I saw the ending on the Today show, WOW! No wonder the gunfire stopped around 11:15. Poor Georgia fans. Now to find a cruise for next spring. I think I have found it, but will have to come up with some money to change the cruise.

Chuck agreed, a trip to see Dan and a cruise was too much for the budget, so we booked the Ecstacy out of Charleston for April 2019 (my 65th birthday) to San Juan, St. Thomas and St Maarten, with 4 days at sea. This will be my "platinum cruise". I must brush up on my trivia.

Dan's brother has a place on Cape Cod, he is going to try and see if we can get it for a week in the fall. Mid September is perfect for the cape. Today we cleaned off the paper on the computer desk and filled two trash bags! What were we thinking? Stuff has got to go! Tomorrow we start inventory. It has to be done by Thursday. At least we were warmer today. Outside felt warmer than inside. I hope all are well and safe.

Ann, I'm even more excited to be going on Elation after reading your review.
I have a question - is there only one outside smoking area? And I guess the casino is the only indoor one?
The one you mentioned with a "tent" affect - are there chairs in the smoking area there that are in the sun? My sister smokes and I would like to be able to sit in the sun with her while she smokes. The last time we cruised together she could smoke on the balcony. Sigh.


I hope you girls all have a restful weekend! I'm excited Gary is off work Monday for MLK.

java-the smoking section will be your cup of tea-take the elevators to the verandah deck-turn left and then go outside, walk up three steps, and you are there. The first half of the seats are covered and the remaining are in the sun, I think there were umbrellas over a few of them. There are six chairs, three facing the other three with a couple of coffee tables between them. on one side, and four chairs set up the same way on the side looking over the lido deck. Inside is the Casino and drama bar. The drama bar area is also where they do the trivia games. Lots of day time action, and the bands play there at night.

I am hoping that May will not be hot, because there is no breeze in the section that is close to the front, under the shade. Chuck cant be out in the sun for long, and I hate hot (of course now that he is so thin he loves it.

So, who has been to Amber Cove? I know at HMC it will be a beach day, and Grand Turk? Maybe a tour and beach day, but Amber Cove? The waters by the dock look awful, the cabins to rent for the day are way too expensive. The tours all seem to involve a lot of walking but I want to see the fortress. The only thing I don't like about this cruise is that you really don't get a beach day on your last day. I wish they started at Amber Cove and ended up with HMC, but with Chuck it's all about new ports.

And none cruise? I am exploring every thing on Cape Cod. I spent my summers there as a kid, I worked on the Cape after my first year in college, but I have not been back since 74. Our summer vacations were pretty well the same thing each year, a couple of days at Skaket beach, visiting with family friends in Chatham my dad fishing for flounder in Salt Pond, then he would make fish chowder (the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten.) So there is so much to explore, Chuck wants to go the Provincetown, I want to go to the Oceanographic institute in Woods Hole. We want to do a beach each day too. Lunch out, and dinners at the house. And there is a Cape Cod Canal tour, (if we cant make the Panama, at least we can do the Cape. LOL).

Oh my goodness. We are on the verandah deck so that will be most convenient. I feel for smokers who have to get up and go long distances to get to an area when they feel the urge to smoke. I'll say again how convenient it was when you could just book a balcony...

I have not been to Amber Cove. As I've mentioned, we love Grand Turk and Gary is not typically a beach person. It's just so relaxing and right there! Step off the ship and walk right to the big Margaritaville huge pool or to the beach with free loungers in shade or sun. We try to grab chairs at the pool quickly as he likes shade and me sun.

I read that there is a tribute museum to John Glenn and the space program at the port center-have you explored that? Chuck wants to, I am still thinking of doing a tour of the island, and then plopping down on the beach for a few hours. We love sun, but chuck just isn't supposed to be out in it for that long.

We cleaned out the floor of the bedroom closet on Saturday, threw out a suitcase whose wheels no longer turned, about 8 pairs of shoes, and made a pile of stuff to give to good will. Chuck had a pair of boots that he bought that he wore once, size 12 (he wears a 13) I told my friend Ken, and since he just moved and threw out his boots, he says he will take them. Today after Chuck has his exit interview, we will clean out the hanging stuff in the closet, he doesn't need 10 shirts that say Ricoh since he doesn't work for them any more.

Chuck needs the computer now, so i'll catch up later.
