Money & Time

Left on my accounts.

NCL doesn’t let you, as I am sure I have mentioned before, use OBC for service charges. This leaves me with the challenge of ” spending money” on whatever I can find that is not a waste. Since I don’t gamble or play Bingo that leaves out those venues. I don’t drink so that leaves me Lattes and the occasional soda.

And, trust me, there is no Art on ship irregardless of the claims by Park West and the jewelry is gaudy, clunky and overpriced. Not that I have an opinion or anything…. Spa? Not likely.

I have also been extremely careful with my internet minutes.

End result is that after finding out that my Internet will carry over (but not the OBC) I will wind up dumbing the extra in the tip fund. At least that way it doesn’t vanish back to NCLs pocket.

Cross Stitch and all of five minutes to pack as I change cabins tomorrow.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
