Pretending it's Friday

I'm done at school for the week and headed to the National Council of Teachers of English convention in Orlando. This is going to be fantastic, and not only because it's the first time (except for that dumb run-around-the-clock relay race) that I've been away from home in a year.

Also, on Sunday when Dan picks me up from the airport, he'll be picking me up in our new minivan.

Yes, my life's dream has finally come true!

It's an eight-passenger, grey, svelte Sienna. And my first week driving it will probably be the best week of my life, except for maybe the week of and after my wedding. I would say the weeks that my kids were born were great too, except they so totally weren't. Remember the 30-hour long labor and then c-section? And then the next 12-hour labor and then c-section? Because I DO.


Orlando, here I come! And when it's over, there will probably be a new blogging challenge. Bring it, Lee! Bring it, Jessie! Bring it, Gina! Bring it, Mary! Bring it, Pronto! Bring it, Dobby! I'm so planning to win this year.

I'm excited about the Sienna and the NCTE trip and seeing you soon, but my mind seems to be stuck on the part about long labors and c-sections.

Also, I could use a new blogging challenge!

I am trying to comment although I am never allowed. I want to know more about your presentation. Send me a link.

I, too, am ready for a challenge!!

Hee Hee! I was able to comment (anonymously). My blog today will be about the exciting event although I don't think it will be super exciting to a technology infused person such as yourself.

I hope the new mini post conference was phenomenal! Jessie linked me to your blog! So glad that we got to spend some time together at the conference. I so wish I could've seen your presentation!
