Going on Vacay and NOT a thing planned

We're going on a vacation and I've never been less prepared.

Yes.  I'm a planner.  I love to plan.  I find it to be part of the fun.  Type A personality?  Yes.  Well, our Disney Cruise Vacation is TOMORROW and I've hardly done a thing to make it happen.  It's paid for and I have a couple of outfits planned, but other than that, I know nothing.  I really haven't started packing even.

I'm starting to feel that stress.  I need to know things, but I don't.  I need to get things done, but I can't.  I'm teaching and my wonderful husband is traveling for work this week.  I've been struggling with a cough for months, and I get to go to the doctor AGAIN tomorrow.  I'm hoping it's not pneumonia, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.  I've been sick since the end of August.  Boo.

I have to tell you, I really looking forward to this vacation.  We've never done a cruise before and I've purposely NOT planned things because I need to unwind.  I've been tighter than a drum and I need to relax.  I'm hoping that by winging it, I'll be able to chill out and maybe stop freaking out all the time.  Maybe I'll find a way to get healthy.

On this cruise, I want to read.  I want to take a nap.  I want to give myself a do-it-yourself spa day.
I want to play with my kids.  I want to do something spontaneous.  I want to eat cookies and gain ten pounds so I can lose it when I get home.

We'll see how this cruise thing goes.  If it works, I'll be thrilled.  I'm really desperate for an escape.
