What is your best traveling tip?
We have done car trips (not 14 hours) but I am not really worried about that.
I just want any tips you can give us for while we are on the cruise. I already know a few-
-Pack an insulated cup for water and bring water enhancers (mio, crystal light, etc)
-decorate your door
-bring surge protector
-don't bring beach towels
-bring over the door shoe organizer for bathroom (thanks tanya)
-bring anything you think you might need (meds, hygiene products, etc) because it's expensive on the ship
-bring lanyards or ask the casino for some
-use velcro straps to wrap charging cords

That's what this is.
Just random thoughts going through my head.
I miss my dad.
I knew I would miss him.
It's no secret that our relationship was rocky, at best, for years.
But it got better over time.
Specifically it was immensely better after I became a parent.
Maybe because I put forth more effort so my daughter would know grandpa.
It's no secret I gave him a hard time.
Part of me feels guilty but part of me knows that he probably didn't expect any less from me
because afterall I was his child and I very much have his personality and attitude
I love my dad. I miss him more than I thought possible
and would give just about anything to talk to him one more time.
Scratch that. I talk to him ALL the time.
I would give anything to hear bite me.
I loved our late night conversations when I would get to his apartment.
I could be dead tired but when I got there and started talking I would wake up.
He would always ask...How's your mom and Ken?
He would ask about the boys and my grandma.
Lately I think a lot about him.
I read the emails I kept from him.
Towards the last few months, they were very short because it was all he could manage.
I still have not deleted his number from my phone. I can't.
His memorial is coming up in May. Maybe that's why he is on my mind.
Now we are going on vacation and it just brought back a flood of memories of him.
He approached me about taking serena on vacation with them after he beat his cancer.
We also tried to plan a Disney trip years ago.
I have a mousepad on my desk with his photos on it.
They make me smile and tear up.
I miss him.
