Thanks for being nice, I figured I'd get a lot of ribbing admitting how tied I am to my vanity. Our ventures are still a few years off but I will definatly have to learn to pare things down. I know there will be some things I simply can't part with. I think I will be able to give up some of my makeup but definatly not my sunscreen! I can even start to look for a different hair style in lieu of blow drying. I am not sure I will be ready to let the gray take over though. On open water I don't think I would have to worry so much about eyeshadow, liner, etc. but would not be willing to give this up in port. Thanks for all the good advice.
