Cruise Countdown
Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Quick NaNoWriMo update: I’m at 27,645 words! I don’t like the start of one of my two new stories, so I may scrap it today and begin again.

In three weeks, I’ll be flying to the port and boarding a cruise ship. I’ve never been on a cruise, but I will have the best company imaginable to assure a good time. Sasha White’s my buddy, and just the sound of her laughter gets me in the mood to party!

I still have things to get done on my To Do list. On Friday, I’ll be at the doctor’s and asking about vaccinations. My passport arrived, so that’s another worry out of the way. My daughter gifted me with new purple luggage as an early Christmas gift—her contribution to my trip.

The most worrisome thing now for me is wardrobe. Did I mention I’ve been dieting? I thought I’d trim down a little, just enough to give me a boost of confidence. I’ve dropped two sizes in a month. So I’m waiting until closer to the date of my flight to shop for new clothes. I didn’t know how much I’d lost until the booksigning. Then I was flying to the back of my closet, looking for a pair of slacks that fit, and the “skinnier” ones I found were still loose! Nice problem to have? I guess. But I hate shopping, and good luck on finding capris this time of year!

    So what’s your weight loss plan? I would love to lose some weight.

    Forgot to add – catalogs are a good place to get capris. They may even be on sale.

    A cruise yeppy! I’m glad your losing weight, you’ll look great on your trip.
    I’m not a big fan of shopping either, but when my 16 year old daughter comes with me, for some reason it makes it easier. I’m in good company and I get a youthful update on my wardrobe. Try going with someone maybe that will help.

    Lisa! I broke down and bought Nutrisystem! Forced portion control for us uncontrollables.

    I’ll check the catalogs and the usual online sites to see of they are running sales. Thanks!

    Maribel! Great idea. And I should be able to talk my daughter into it, because she knows when we shop together I always buy something for her too!
