I'm Sailing Away...

Just got official word today that the vacation time I put in for in June has been approved. Which means that this summer I am going on an Alaskan cruise! It wasn't something I'd really expected to do... My mom and her husband had made plans with some of her family to take the cruise before he got sick, and he was kind of insistent that if anything happened to him, she should go ahead and do it anyway. In fact, getting out of the house and doing something active and fun is probably a really good thing for her, and I think she's feeling very positive about the idea. Only, well, now she's got an extra cruise ticket, so I've sort of inherited it. I'm mostly motivated by a desire to keep Mom company, to be honest (not that I guess she'll really need it, with the various other relatives who'll be along), but it should be an interesting experience. I've never been on a cruise before. Hmm, I wonder what books I should pack?
