When you log onto Holland America's website it reminds you, just in case you forgot, that you are leaving on a cruise soon. in fact it counts down the days. I just popped on to see if we have a room yet (sadly no) and I was told it is 19 days until we depart on our cruise. That means it is 18 days until we leave Edmonton for Fort Lauderdale, and that means time is running out for our planning. Really it is a mad dash work wise to get ready for the exit. And then there is the home world, dog sitter, cleaning, organizing, packing, and all that kind of jazz.
The part I'm a little scared of is the exchange. Canadian money is in sad shape vs. the US dollar. Should I hold out and buy Euros and US dollars just before I leave in hopes the dollar rebounds? Or do I bite the bullet and get on with it. Not sure but I think I'll leave that until at least 18 days and counting. So tomorrow.
You should visit Mellissa's blog while we are away as well. She usually gets the story and the details a bit clearer than me. I'm all for video and photos and a little thought or two. She gets the darn story right. Here's her URL: http://mellissak.weebly.com/
