My bags are packed, I ready to go...

By this time tomorrow night, I'll be in the air, on my way to Jamaica, for a week of no responsibilities, no cooking, no cleaning and no work! I've got a drive to and from the airport, I've arranged free parking for the week ( gotta love family). I'll chip in for gas, I'm packing a lunch/snacks for the trip. ( I don't want to spend too much money on takeout tomorrow, knowing I'll be eating every meal in a restaurant for a week!

My suitcase is packed, along with my carry-on. I did buy some snacks for the beach, along with gum and peppermints. I bought 2 brand new paperbacks today along with 5 books at a used book store and I received 2 free books in the mail yesterday. I figure I'm set for reading materials. And yes, I most likely will read all 9 books on my trip. An average week book wise for me is 3-4, and considering I have nothing to do but swim, read, eat, drink and walk, I'll be good! I'm also going unplugged for the trip. So I'll have lots of catching up to do next Sunday!

The car is filled with gas, I'm loaning it to someone for the week. It makes no sense to keep the car in the driveway, as DD can't drive, and if it storms, no one can plow the drive way, so it's being borrowed by someone I trust.

One last thing? Remember how I had the goal of 300.00 American to bring with me? I ended up with 281.00, none of which came from the bank. I had decided that that was enough money, as I didn't want to have to pay bank fees for 20.00. My godparents heard I was going down south and dropped a twenty dollar bill off to my parents house yesterday! Now I have 301.00 American for my trip!

Have a great week everyone and enjoy the nice weather!

Both times I was in Mexico I read 1 book per day! Better play it safe with your own mini-library.

Have a great trip!
