Packing, here I come...

So tonight I'm going to start packing. Considering I'm leaving early Thursday morning, tonight would probably be a good time to start. Actually, last week would have been a good time to start, but eh. I'm filled with that nervous/excited energy that fills you when your life is about to radically change. I live for feelings like this. Newness. It's a beautiful thing. Tomorrow night I'll be filled these feelings as well as a sadness for leaving my family. But tonight, that sadness is nowhere to be found. That's what's so great about starting my packing tonight instead of cramming it all into tomorrow night. Tomorrow might be a tad more emotional, making something like packing slightly more work. Also, tomorrow I will be going to Fry's and Bath and Body Works for gift certificate spending. My Mom wanted me to get my car serviced, but I really really don't want to bring it in. I always end up getting overcharged, and it always seems so unnecessary to me. I just got all new tires, and I got my oil changed before I went to Oregon in August, so I really feel like I'll be fine for the drive up there. It's a relatively new car too.. a 2001 VW Golf. I so wish they had offered an Auto Shop class at my high school or something, cause I feel so clueless when I open up the hood and look in. But I absolutely do not trust mechanics not to overcharge me. I know I'd probably have to take my Dad or brother to come with me so I don't get screwed, but they're way too busy to come with me, so I don't want to go at all. Being a girl with no car knowledge really sucks sometimes. Honestly, my car should be fine. And I have AAA, so even if the worst should happen, we'll deal with it.

I'm wondering if we'll have to drive through any snow. The cool thing is, the weather's clearing up just as we're about to leave. The forecast for CA and OR is clear for the trip. So yay to that. Me and the fam will be stopping at Hearst Castle, which is a really nice place to visit. I went there once when I was 10, and it was a great time. Then we're driving to Redding and staying there that night. On Friday we're driving from Redding to Eugene, which may or not be a rather challenging drive. We have to go through a couple of mountainous passes.. granted they're both on the I-5, so they keep it rather nice and cleaned up. I'm hoping I won't have to deal with putting chains on the tires. Blah to that. But it should be fine. Hopefully I'll get all my clothes packed tonight, cause that will take the longest. That way tomorrow night I can make a mixed cd or two, and finish packing up the rest of my car with lamps, a mirror, a vacuum, a blender, my quesadilla maker, my boom box & cd player, my computer(which my cousin will be fixing tomorrow night), movies and cd's, books, pictures, my little plastic drawers and my bulletin board. I think that's it. Phew. Lots of work ahead of me. It's all good though. I'm up to the challenge. I'll just throw some cd's in the player to pump me up, and pack away. This move is going to do wonders for me. It's amazing how incredible your life can be when it's completely your own. I'm so looking forward to the changes to come.

hehe, I got it for Christmas from the parents. I'm not sure where they got it. I imagine it's from Target or Ikea.. some place like that. I haven't used it yet, but I'm really excited to. Me quiero quesadillas.
