Costa Rica Day 10 - no really!

I think I packed and ran to the storage place four or five times. I did NOT want to take more stuff than I needed. I did NOT want to over pack. Keep It Simple. Keep it Safe. I still left the bulk of my allergy medicine, shampoo, and notebook somewhere in Jersey. PFT.... I'll get it right. I just need to move in a suitcase a few more times.

Get caught up on True Blood (still missing the last 3 episodes as they were not on HBO onDemand) Visit everyone (crazy car problems, rain, and general laziness prevented me from getting to North Jersey and South Philly).

There is no desperately trying to make home in hell. Nothing to cling to out of necessity. I feel for BandV…
