It's Friday!!!! The best day of the week!
Just for fun, I thought I'd post a pic of my dog, Charlie, when he was a puppy. He's now nearly 7 years old, which is 49 in dog years. Right now, he's laying underneath my desk, content just to be beside me. We went for a walk last evening where he sniffed nearly every clump of grass in sight and he blissfully ignored any other dogs around. I don't know what I'd do without him.
I spent the majority of last evening working on my speech for Saturday night. It's an interesting mixture of my writing journey and my love of history. I'm not quite sure how to end it, but I have a feeling it will work itself out somehow. I'm looking forward to that night. I hope I don't get nervous!
I'm also ecstatic because my brother and sister-in-law loaned me the money for my plane ticket to Atlanta!!! How awesome is that??? They are just so wonderful. But that's what our family does - we help each other out.
I'm not sure when to buy the flight. I've heard that they actually go on sale closer to your departure date - sixty days out or so - but in the last month, the flight I need has jumped in price $25 or so. I'm thinking of waiting until next week to see where the prices are. But if any of you have any good advice on buying cheap airline tickets, let me know. I've been checking all the big names online - www.expedia.com and www.cheaptickets.com. I'm not sure if it would be better to go through an airline or not. Maybe I'll call tomorrow and find out.
EDIT: I just bought my plane ticket!!! I'm officially going to Atlanta!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

We have a big snowstorm headed our way. Now usually these snowstorm predictions tend to be far grander than what actually happens - i.e. we ...
Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
