Vacation Time...Patient Wait... :o)

One more week of work and then finally we start a 2-week vacation. Yipee..

I hardly believe the time is here because our Panama Canal Cruise was booked over a year ago and it was best not to even think about it. It seemed so far ahead. So here we are...almost and we'll be travelling with friends. There are 9 other couples and 5 of those couples including us have booked early enough to have our rooms side-by-side. As we did on our last cruise when we travelled with 4 of the couples we will have our balcony doors unlocked between us. We can sit privately on our balcony but we can also visit with each other. I can hardly wait!
We'll be stopping at Aruba, Pamana, Columbia, Costa Rica and Ochos Rios in Jamaica. I've been reading about the Panama Canal and its very interesting. There is some history here... We're all excited for this trip.

Geoff is going to be here to look after Abby and I know I'm going to miss her. She has some finicky ways about her and I know she'll miss least my understanding and catering to her needs. *s*...
I've pulled out my summer clothes which seems strange because it is still so wintery here...brrrrrr...I washed and ironed them and everything is ready to be packed. Its going to be a week full of inspiration....and I hope yours is too! Judi xoxo

Your cruise sounds wonderful. I have never vacationed with other couples, but it sounds like it would be fun! Take tons of photos so we can experience the trip through you.

Hi Judi,
Thank you for stopping by to visit me today.
I am so happy for you getting to go on your trip. I have been studying and reading how if some one was going to buy property in the Panama Canal, now is the time because they are still waving the fee on your belongings being brought in ...and that is a huge savings just for people who love to read books alone...books are so heavy.
Abby is the sweet spoiled, pampered, little girl that will miss you so...I know I have 3 boys just like her and 2 boy spoiled and pampered dogs...all rescue.
Spacey, our oldest male cat should have been an only child but he is tolerant of everyone else as long as he gets his way first.
Have A Sugar Sweet Day
