Two Weeks!

Wow. As of today, in exactly 2 weeks I'll be on a plane leaving for this adventure. While for the most part the trip is taken care of now (I've even confirmed with my flight carriers that I get 2 check ins), money is still a bit of a worry. Fun money that is. I've promised to get my kids something as well as my wife. One of the items I put up on Ebay finally sold after relisting it and I have had an offer on another item from an internation buyer. So that all might work out in the end.

We've also got an opportunity to pick up a used hot tub for free. The downside is that we have a small backyard, so it would most likely take up most of the backyard. Plus it might be a pain to move when we find a bigger place. How heavy are hot tub? Are they really heavy, or is it more the fact that they are large and ungainly to move? We would have to get a special breaker installed for it as well as a 220 outlet outside. Decisions, decisions.

Am I nervous? A bit. I know that I'll feel a lot better about everything once I'm over there. I'm a bit nervous about the tournament, but I've been in them before and so a lot of it is not going to be new. Getting yelled at in a foreign language will be a different experience. And it will certainly be entertaining to have everyone immediately start talking to me in Korean. I don't think I'll be able to order a kilt by the time of leaving for Korea. Sad I know. My training routine has intesified (well, as much as it could) for the next two weeks, with classes or personal study everyday. I think I strained a muscle in my back the other day doing shoulder rolls for Form 5 so I do have to watch that. Plus I'll have to get a new ankle wrap to take with me. Man, I must be falling apart... And I haven't even had my mid-life crisis.

Movies worth seeing for those that are interested: Toy Story 3 and the A-Team. Haven't seen Get Him To The Greek yet, but it looks like it could be a fun time as well. Don't waste your money on the Last Airbender.

Movies I want to see: Predators and Despicable Me.

Peace out everyone and have a great day! Keep checking back for updates!
