Yay, I finally decided what I am going to do with the last of my vacation for the year! I'm going to California!!! I haven't been in six years so I'm about due another trip out West...I think I am going to try to get out of Houston around the 22nd and stay until the end of the month. I just called one of my cousins who lives out there and that was the best time for him, too...he was so excited to hear from me. Last year when we went to Egypt five of the six cousins were there...this one was the only one absent, so it will be great to spend time with him and also see his brother, who did make it to Egypt. So, that takes care of accomodations - just need to find a flight out and I'm ready to go! And oh, what beautiful weather I hope to see!!
