It’s Time

July 8, 2007 | Karin's Blog | 9 comments

My bags are nearly packed. My house in quasai order. My husband and son bereft, and my mother-in-law not knowing what to do for a week with me gone. 🙂 Lucky for her she has a busy social week ahead.

My sources tell me there is sunshine expected in Dallas tomorrow, so my flight should be uneventful. Yesterday at a meeting we ladies had a rather extensive conversation on the pros and cons of Valium vs Xanex. Xanex rules!!! But, alas, I have none in my arsenal of drug reinforcements. I am literally flying straight, into thunderstorm-land,. I shudder to think of it.

My good friend from South Africa, Michelle, along with Edie, Liz and LaDonna will be picking me up at the airport, then whisking me away for two days of girl stuff at a B&B we’re taking over. Then we’ll head to the Hyatt.

From the moment I check in my time is spoken for. Except Saturday day. Hey, I might catch a workshop. Ya never know, stranger things have happened.

I suspect at every turn I will see a familiar face or hear a familiar name. There are so many ladies I have met on line who I can’t wait to meet in person. Then there are my old good friends who I haven’t seen for a while, and of course, lots of my Cali girls. The divas (Fog City) are all meeting for a drink and photo ops. You have no idea what a feat getting 10 very busy ladies together for a drink and pictures in Dallas was. But when all of the schedules settled, all 10 of us had the same exact time in our crazy conference time available. It was meant to be.

So, I will bid you adieu until sometime tomorrow night. I’m assuming the B&B has wireless. I mean, I can go without a teli, but my laptop? Hell no! I hope I’m not too wiped out to blog semi regularly. And I will have pictures when I get home. Lot’s of pictures.

Ciao, and please continue to pray those thunderstorms stay far away from my plane tomorrow!

    Again I ask, are you going somewhere?

  2. Lynne

    I hope for all your sakes that the B&B has wireless! If not, maybe there’ll be a Starbucks nearby, at least.

    Have a great trip! 🙂
