It’s crunch time, yo. J and I leave tomorrow.. We should be Tijuana’s airport in 24 hours, actually. Still trying mot to freak out. Should probably be further along I packing, though.
Mexico City will be great, but it’s supposed to rain the whole time we’re there. I’m not used to experiencing real weather, so we’ll see how I fair. And, altitude sickness. Not looking forward to that.
Also, my dad and his wife rented a beach house. On the beach. With a private beach. My dad’s letting us choose where to stay. I’m sure J and I will stay at the beach house. It also has a pool and hot tub.
All I need in order to be done preparing for my Mexico trip is:
a haircut (Wednesday). I’d have gotten it done today, but I didn’t know the salon closes on Sundays.
to buy some postcards for my step-mother’s kids and their significant others. They’re from Germany and have never been to the States, so I figured some touristy things will suffice. (probably Wednesday after getting my hair done)
to buy inexpensive sunglasses; it’d hurt less if I broke or lost something cheap (SAA.)
a load of laundry (some time Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday)
pack (…Uh. Today, Monday through Thursday morning)
I’m actually slightly jarred at the fact that I have everything under control. Like, it seems too easy. I know I prepared for this, made lists, saved up, and took things a step at a time. I’m usually not this.. non-procrastinating.
I am so ready for this trip. Bought decongestant allergy medicine, (raspberry flavored, chewable) Bonine, read up on altitude sickness and how to get over it.. Which I’m glad I did since Mexico City is about a mile above sea level. Where I’ve lived my whole life.
t minus four days to go until J and I are within Mexico City… city limits.
