    I love "play money", Good Luck with your Blackjack strategy hope it works! Not sure why I thought you were already in Aruba, oh well....will be here before you know it. Don't forget to have some ice cold Brights for me I've been craving them (lol) saw a commercial last night of some guy running on the hot sand with a bucket of Corona's got me going as they looked like our Brights but of course are not even close....hubby laughed as he said that guy would not be running on sand in Aruba as the sand is never hot!!!

    My wife has never been one to prepare in advance... UNTIL we had a child. We have 9 days to go and my wife has packed at least 40 lbs of stuff for my 26 lb daughter. She went to CVS/Walgreens and pretty much bought everything!

    I am just as bad - I went to Five Below and bought a ton of beach toys to bring.

    NINE Days---- yayyy single digits!

    HAHAHA - I have a big framed picture of Arashi beach over my desk and my colleagues complain - If I started wearing vacation clothes to work, I think that would cross the line. Although - Fridays are super casual days and I may have to try it next Friday before I leave!!!

    I think I'd put them over the edge if I went with cargo shorts and flip flops too!

    DH wore a Hawaiian shirt with shorts and sandals on his last day of work when he retired. That was in March (2011) and everyone still talks about it. He loves to wear those shirts when he's in Aruba

    Sounds to me that someone is well prepared if he wins big at BlackJack!!!! An extra 3 months in Aruba would not be a bad problem seeing as you are so prepared (lol)....

    When Charles and Junior go on Vacation they .....
    Each has
    3 t-shirts (One without holes)
    2 shorts (both with stains and holes)
    1 pair flip flops each
    Hand full of underwear
    All above go into a small pull string shoulder bag

    Money on the card and PPort in the pocket
    Call friend for Airport lift

    I have become expert at confusing simplicity. Now I am trying to fail at that expertise.
