I'm down to my last full day here in San Juan. I've checked the weather conditions back home, and I'm in for a treat tomorrow.

Right now it's 77 degrees here in San Juan, in OKC it's 19. I'm going to freeze!

Not much of a view outside of my room, but at least I can pick up the Wi-Fi signal coming from the pool. I had two choices, either have a room on the 10th floor with a great view and a roommate, or take this view, and be by myself. I choose the later, considering I've been here twice already.

I may venture out tomorrow, I still haven't decided yet. I've got the keys to the van and I could go shopping, but I'm trying to save money to pay off bills and buy some computer parts. I still want to head out to Hard Rock Cafe before leaving next week.

I went to the commissary at Ft Buchanan today to get some food for the next two weeks. The prices at the local grocery stores here in San Juan are outrageous! What costs $2.50 for ice cream in Oklahoma will cost $7.29 here in San Juan. Happily the same ice cream at the commissary costs $2.69, a fair price.

But because the prices are so good, EVERYBODY who has a connection with the military shops there. I waited a record 54 minutes in line to pay for my groceries! I know it was 54 minutes because I started the stopwatch once I got in line. I'll never complain about a line at Wal-Mart again.
It's Super Bowl Sunday, and I'm sitting here in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I actually don't have the game on, and I really couldn't care about it. Once Denver got hammered by Pittsburgh, I lost interest in the entire thing. Plus I don't feel like sitting through the commercials, where is trying to push the envelope on what they can get away with.

Sheez, there used to be a time when you could sit down with your family and watch the Super Bowl, and have a good laugh over the commercials. Now it seems like they are trying to out due each other ever since the famous Janet Jackson incident. I figure it I can't watch something with my kids in the room, then why should I be watching it?
