No hail for me. But, the three minute downpour did start as I was heading to my car from Adonis Supermarket.

If you think of anything else I should have I would appreciate the input :) I'm a little nervous and would like to be prepared.
The laptop is all she is using for notes. She will also have a couple of coil notebooks, a few flash drives, pens, pencils and her calculator. The calculator cost about half of what the laptop cost!

My trusty ti-83+ from high school got used to death on the math team so I had to buy another one of those. Got it for $30 on Craigslist lol. So my laptop cost about 20X what the calculator did ha ha ha.... Sounds like I'm pretty well set :) thanks!

I'll probably take notes the old fashioned way... Writing things down helps me memorize. I usually don't have to look back at notes.

Get some flash drives or an external hard drive to back up important stuff. Its cheap and a total lifesaver if you get a virus.

Very true. I have flash drives, pretty sure they are in my laptop bag in storage. Need to find that anyway...

Have fun baking Kylie!!!

Well, we didn't make the doctor's appointment this morning because I was nauseated after breakfast and in pain. It's okay, I really didn't want to go anyway. Then we went to the IV therapy centre and when they found out I am getting so nauseated with it they didn't give me this treatment and I don't have to go back. Instead they are trying an oral antibiotic again. I had a rest and now we are going out to get DH's birthday presents and some dinner - I am not so nauseated now. Turned into a good day!

You have a great attitude, LP! When a good day means being "not so nauseated now", wow. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Happy birthday, DH of LP!

I just ordered a couple of waterproof cases for our iPhones for snorkeling from Amazon, free shipping. They're good to 20 feet underwater.

We're having Margaritas while we wait for supper to be finished cooking. We're have Harry's Spicy meat ball rendang.
