Wow the time has gone so quickly and there is only five more days until I leave to the USA for a beach vacation-weekend! Since I don’t want to forget anything, I am going to talk a little bit about it and make a To-Do list for myself to remind me of what I need to do!

I have never been to this part of the USA, since I had only ever been to Ohio and New Hampshire, so I don’t know what to expect really. I also haven’t been to the ocean at all, so I don’t know what to expect in terms of the beach and the water and such. It’s fairly far south, so it might be really hot (but I’m not quite sure what kind; hot and dry or moist and humid?) I will do some reasearch and hope to God that it doesn’t rain, because that would make me cry!

Okej, so here we go with the To-Do

To-Do List:
1) Get Haircut
2) Pack clothing (See To Bring List)
3) Go to bank to get US Funds
4) Talk to Jim about when I will arrive at his house and when we leave
5) Personal grooming
6) Get present for Jean
7) Figure out how I’m going to tan without burning to a crisp

To-Bring List:
1) Pillow
2) Bag / Blanket
3) Sunscreen
4) Towel / swim-shorts
5) Tanning shorts
6) Disco clothes
7) Toothbrush / toothpaste / shampoo / soap / etc.
8) Book(s) to read
9) Music (somehow)
10) Digi-Camera
11) Water bottle
12) Passport(s)

So if I forgot anything I will just add it to the list, so that I won’t forget it before Friday when we leave! B) *hops around* This is so exciting, and I can’t wait!

In other news today, I have a ban concert tonight for the opening of a new school, so I best be practicing my instrument sometime today, since I have like 5 hours to familiarize myself with the tunes, which are sometimes very difficult.

I was in the yard yesterday working very much, so I am quite tired today, but it’s hotter and I am too lazy to go outside, so sadly because I am not there, my parents are working slowly and no being very proactive. If I’m there yelling at them to keep going and telling them what to do, they work much better..

As someone told me one day: “Crack that whip osky!!” :yes:
