Captain we have a situation
How hard could it be to find someone at sea? Let me just tell you. We have been trying to get a hold of my mom in the middle of the Caribbean for two days now. She isn't getting or checking her cell phone. My Grandmother (her mom) was taken to the hospital Sunday night, and at first my uncle told me not to say anything. But it became very clear last night that he was going to have to go to Florida and that someone needed to find my mom. Now, I had already dragged my sister into this tangled web and we had decided after the first phone call from my uncle that we had to find my mom. But now, well, we need to find her pronto.
I've contacted the emergency service, I have a case number, but I still don't know if she got my message. We got all the info on her cruise because my sister the computer hacker, hacked into her email. (Nice job Bec!) Otherwise we would have nothing to go off of. She didn't leave us an itinerary. Let that be a lesson to all you would be cruisers--figure out the emergency plan in advance!!!
Otherwise, J and I would be having a nice relaxing day. But, since we can't go outside because we must stay by the phone, J is unhappy and that makes me unhappy. I'm cleaning the scraproom, trying to fix my fung shui and fight my way out of scrappers block.
