It is not that I really mind that this wonderful cruise is coming to an end. It is just that getting through this particular day can be a pain.
The seas are rough, I need to pack, and trying to check in for my flight is absolutely insane.
In order – rough seas – I can live with. I don’t usually get sea sick. Haven’t so far this cruise and not expecting to have any issues this last night. But the bobbing and weaving around makes it a bit challenging occasionally to navigate across the cabin, much less ensure that I have all the small, rolly-things under control and tucked into the correct pocket. I am thinking that I may wind up going with the toss the suckers in and sort-em-out when I get home. I have acquired almost nothing on the trip, having lost the taste for souvenirs a number of years ago after trying to figure out exactly WHAT I was going to do with all those fridge magnets. I don’t scrapbook. I am also taking home less than I brought. The two puzzles will remain here on the ship and I am tossing my sandals as they have reached the end of their life expectancy.
The checking in process is what is driving me nuts. It took 10 minutes for the United site to load. I have no interest in using the app since I won’t be on line in the terminal unless there is free wi-fi. In any case, I have hard copy documents + pictures. So I finally, after about 10 tries (no, the slider on the side doesn’t move the form up – it closed the pop-up). Slow learner here – after trying several things – using the down arrow worked after clicking somewhere – anywhere inside the pop-up border, I was able to upload my documents. But no, that is nowhere near enough! I then had to manually enter all the data on my immunizations.
And, after all of that – the site tells me it is “processing” whatever the H that means. But I can’t go any further in the process for the moment. I wonder if the process needs human eyes or counseling to process….
Ah well. Not much else accomplished today. I am tired and need some sleep!
