We are almost there, the best part is, when we got back from picking Camden up from school I check our bank acct. online and FedEx had debited our account which means our visas are on their way back to KC. Yesterday I went to go pick up our money, and they assured me that all the money was good. I took their word on it. Never again. When I got home I went through it all. Our agency stated that we had to have money printed after the year 2000 and no stamps, writing, marks etc on it. Well when I went through it, 1 bill was printed in 1996, and 6 bills had little smiley faces stamped on the back of them.
So today after Randy and I dropped off Camden at school we went to a different branch and exchanged out our bad bills and also got a medical Power of Attorney signed for my mom since she is taking Camden next week. Then we went to Nebraska Furniture Mart and bought a backpack laptop carrier to put the laptop in. I also have room to put the camera and video camera in it. So no camera bag to lug around. Then we went and picked up a money belt and electric converter from Trisha from Adventures! Thanks again. We also went to Wal-Mart and got all our travel size everything we need. I did forget the Tylenol PM though. I will need that, since we will be traveling SOOOOO much, I don't sleep well if I am not in a bed. Planes, trains and cars, forget about it. I have to be drugged to sleep.
It is all falling into place, now I just need to figure out what I am taking! I am a last minute packer, and so is Randy, we will probably be packing at Midnight Saturday for our Sunday A.M. flight. :-)
