Last Post before Bermuda

We're leaving tomorrow, around 11:00 AM to drive to Baltimore for the cruise ship. No, I'm not packed yet-did you think I would be?????? Of course, my crochet tote is packed already, can't forget any of that.

Laundry is in the dryer now, soccer clothes washed for next week and some other stuff is done-no worries here.

Elena did fine at the sleepover, too fine. She didn't want to leave and go to soccer. They had their first game this AM and three kids on the team didn't show. Of course that meant no breaks for the kids playing. Around 10 minutes before the end of the game, Elena looked at me and said "You are embarrassing me-can't you embarrass someone from the blue team?" (we are the orange team). About a minute later she burst into tears and ran off the field. Apparently 5 (or less) hours sleep, and probably not good sleep, does not agree with her. She literally had a meltdown, as did another little girl who was at the party on the other team. It was so muggy and warm, all the kids were tired. We went home and Elena got out of her soccer clothes and literally passed out on the couch for about 3 hours. Poor baby was so tired-rightfully so. We did win the game, although technically all games are supposed to end in a tie, the other team couldn't catch up.

Mike checked the weather forecast for Bermuda, chance of showers for the next ten days. Of course I wouldn't catch a break would I? I don't even care, truth be told. There's enough on the boat to do. Mike downloaded some stuff and there is a public park with a public beach on one of the bus routes we can get to once in Bermuda. I want to sit on the beach a day. Then the other day we can shop at the tourist trap shops set up in port. I'm looking forward to some quiet time with no phones (or computer) for that matter.

I'll be back next weekend-Happy Hooking!!!!

Have a great time on your trip! And remember, rain showers in Bermuda are infinitely preferable to showers at home while you're doing your everyday stuff :->

I hope you have some good weather, but just in case bring pants with elastic waistbands as I heard cruises have good food!
