Tuesday, April 26, 2005 Vaaaaacation!

So this is what it feels like....

Today was a do nothing day. Okay, so I cleaned house and finished packing and ran out to get banking done, etc for tomorrow morning's early departure, but honestly, compared to the 8hrs of nonstop chaos I deal with at the office, today was a walk in the park. (And that was a really long sentence....waits for the editor to arrive and smack my hands!)

It seems amazing that it's time to leave for St. Louis already. I'll admit it, I'm nervous. This is something very new to me and well, I'm not exactly a social butterfly. (Passed the larvae stage but never quite found my way outta that cocoon.) Have I packed the right clothes? Did I forget anything oh-so-vital? Do I have enough money? (talk about a rhetorical question!)

Yeah, I'm excited too. There's been reports on the ellorascavechat and Jaci Burton's Paradise yahoo groups from members who've already arrived. Sounds like they've taken over the town already. :P I can't wait to meet some of these ladies in person. Over the last few years I've gotten to know alot of them on levels that go deeper than with friends I have here locally.

And then there's the excitement of the parties and all-you-can learn days of workshops and panels. I've got my camera ready and my pencil sharpened. Expect child-like awe in my return reports. :)

With that, I'm signing off until later. Who knows, I might be able to grab a minute and post from RT. If I don't, you'll know I'm having fun!
