To say I am excited about this 'business trip' is an understatement. I am trying very hard not to let my expectations get away from me, but right now it's like trying to catch a chipmunk. Always a step ahead and determined to go up a tree. And stay there. So there.
So here I am, packed, ready to head out to the airport a full hour before I planned to. My little family is still asleep and I am reflecting on how very lucky I am. I am very thankful that I have a supportive husband who thinks nothing of 'holding down the homestead' for nearly 5 days while I go off persuing my dream. I am very thankful of my friends and supporters who have suffered quietly these last few weeks as I prattled on about how excited I am to go to Ranger U. My daughter was much less enthusiastic about the whole thing but then, I have always endorsed honesty over any other policy so her 'I don't want you to go!" is said with love too. A very special thank you goes to Linda O. for making a beautiful canvas apron for me (as my sewing is such that it would make a cat laugh) that will show my efforts over the next few days.
I am very thankful.
Oops Emma is up now. Gotta Run. Stay tuned, I plan on blogging as much as possible!
