Hey - me again! Guess what - I got permission to leave camp on Wednesday instead of Friday! Classes are over on Tuesday and that's also the last day for time-off, so there's no reason I really have to be there, and it will make a world of difference for me to have Thursday and Friday to rest and get my appointments (dentist, eye doctor (for a Lasik consult!), and haircut) out of the way and not have to do all that when Martin's here. I told a white lie and said that I had to be at the airport on Friday instead of Saturday. Who's to know? :)

Today is my last 'long day' off, so Marie and I went to Greenville to go shopping at Old Navy (one of the few stores where I can always find clothes!). We got lost a few times, but it wasn't my fault. (No, Mom, it really wasn't - I swear! We asked a few different people for directions on the way there, and they all told us different things!) We did finally get there, and then we went nuts - I bought new jeans, two T-shirts (one white and one green), and some underwear (yeah, couldn't resist). The jeans are light blue instead of my 'normal' blue, and they look really nice. Came with a fabric belt, too. :) I also returned the waist pack I bought at Mass General the other day - it turned out to be too small. I couldn't zip it shut, and that was without my camera! So I went back and bought the one I'd wanted in the first place, from Sherpani. It's much larger, but doesn't seem so because it also 'fits' much better (it's adjustable in multiple ways). It's also 'prettier' (haha, yes, I am a girl :)).

Anyway, then we went back to camp and picked up the 'short day' people - Haley, Vanessa, and Amanda - and now we're all going out to dinner at Atlanta Bread Company and then to TCBY and Wal-Mart. (No Ton-A-Wandah night off is complete without a visit to Wal-Mart - it's the only 'real' store in the whole town, haha!)

Sunday is my next and last day off - just a 'short day', from six to 23:45. And then on Wednesday I go home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
