Hey Sara, 

Can’t wait until the weekend. It will be great to see you after a long time. Listen, I’ve got some good ideas for fun things we can do, but I also have to get some other stuff done. My parents are trying to sell the house, and someone will probably come to look at it this weekend. On Friday, I have to clean out the garage and my closet. Then I’m going to drop old clothes off at a consignment store. After that, I have to put away all my video games and other junk. I know that doesn’t sound like much fun, but at least my room will be clean and tidy! And then we can go out. My friends Stuart and Jane are having a party on Friday night, and there’s a concert on Saturday night. 

Bring a swimsuit. We’re going to the beach on Sunday. It’s not far and the weather is supposed to be great. 



Are you planning to open a coffee shop in the future? What skills do you need for that?

Do you know any proverbs or quotes on planning?
