Well...I am on spring break now and I am trying to check items off my list. I was able to find a great deal on a backpack at REI. The guy told me I should be this certain backpack but it was $250.00. I asked him if there was anything in the $100 range. He took me over the the clearance rank and told me that these were last year's models and was that ok...I told him, I didn't care if they were 10 years old, they were great. I got a great backpack for $160.00. WAHOOOO. Thanks Aunt Mary Jane for your great bargaining skills!!!
I also got the electric outlet converters. Man those are PRICEY!!! Those almost cost as much as the backpack.
I have been continuing to talk to Katerina. She is the teacher that is going to be living in my house and teaching at my school. She seems WONDERFUL. We seem so much alike and I really am feeling better about this process with her being the one that I am exchanging with!!!
I will be updating with some pictures soon so stay tuned. In exactly 4 months, I am beginning my new life journey. My heart is already starting to race a little faster each minute!!
