Almost Friday...

Okay peeps- tomorrow is my Friday- and then?
I am gone, gone, gone like the wind to Alaska. Remember, I started to talk about it the other day, but didn't have the energy to write about it- well, today I do- mostly because I can't focus on whatever projects I am supposed to be finishing up at work before I leave and also because I am so sore today (I ran yesterday morning, dumb dumb I am) and my back feels like it is going to fall off (is that possible?) and why is my back sore and not my legs? Weird.
Anyway, we are going to Alaska, on a cruise ship. I have never been on a cruise, and never been to Alaska either- so I am pretty darn excited. We (hubby and I) are headed up there with about 8 friends to be silly and sea sick together. (BTW, does anyone have any tips for anti-sea sickness? I don't have a doctor so I can't really get the prescription anti-nausea button to put behind my ear)
I am making a trip this afternoon to Savers (only the best place to gather costumes for the journey) with a friend.
We are headed up to Seattle on Thursday to hang out and play. I have already identified several photobooths within walking distance of our hotel- oh yes, their will be chaos in the booth... As well as looked at the KEXP calendar so we know what's going on Thursday night.

I have been getting up early to knit the baby sweater, as I really need to have it sent to the recipient tomorrow so it makes it's way to the Bay Area this weekend for the party. (A HUGE thanks to Rachel of *Amazing Lace Fame* for helping me out with the pattern- this is a regular knit of hers so I dropped her an email and she has been more than happy to help me past a few of the snags I ran into with the pattern)
Also supposed to have a baby hat done (gonna do another tomato hat) for another friend's baby shower this weekend, ack. I can get this done, I can, I can.
I started to work on the apron for the swap. I found some great fabric in a stash box and have a really great theme going. I hope the recent likes it as much as I do~~ right now it is just a pile of fabric and pins, I haven't had the umph to get the sewing machine out- also, I can't find my iron in the move in mess, so that is hampering my efforts....
Speaking of hampering efforts, has anyone else picked up Su Doku? This could be the end of me, blogging, knitting, cooking, showering, sleeping.... bad bad bad Su Doku.
I will try to get some pictures to the post this evening...

I promise to take a TON of pictures on the trip. I will be gone Thursday-Friday. No blogging until I get back home on the 24th.

I get wicked car sickness and Dramamine is the only thing that helps. I get the 'less drowsy' version, otherwise I'm out like a light.

I've also used Dramamine on trains, so assume it word work for the sea, too.

Have a great time!

Have a great trip! I use the wristbands and ginger gum but if you get really horribly sick you might be able to get the prescription dots on board ship...?

Jennifer said...

Have FUN! Looking forward to the photos.

Have fun, and just get drunk, I think that cures sea sickness...

Oooooh, ALASKA! I'm so jealous!! You're doing the Inside Passage, I assume? Oh god, I'm getting a major wanderlust attack this very minute. Have fun, share all your pix and say hello to BC and AK. Sniff!

Glad to hear things are on track with the baby sweater, at least as of this post. I hope you got it finished in time! I love DB Cashmerino -- in addition to its many other lovely characteristics, it washes and dries really nicely.

An Alaskan cruise -- fantastic! Have a wonderful time.
