Florida, here I come
I'm packed and ready to go, but freaking out at the same time. I am a first-class worrier, glass half empty kind of person, anxiety rules under most circumstances. Will I have enough time to get everything ready, will I have enough time to get there, will my bags get searched, did I pack enough stuff, did I pack the right stuff, what if the plane goes down and Capt. Sullivan isn't there to land us safely in the Hudson, what if, what if, what if? Once I get there, I will be fine, I will enjoy myself. It's the getting there that I have a hard time with.
But I am totally looking forward to the white sandy beaches, turquoise Gulf of Mexico waters, dolphins, shark's teeth (not sharks so much), alligators (from a distance), the beautiful scenery and birds. I cleared my camera, so I have 1000 pictures available on my memory card, and I plan to use every single one of them. And I plan to bore you with almost every single one of them when I get back, so you have that to look forward to.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the pictures of the (fucking finally) blooming daffodils that I took at my sister's on Easter. My yard better be a riot of Springtime when I get back! Which should be sometime next Thursday. Please enjoy this video of The Chipmunks doing Flo-Rida's song Low until then.
(p.s. Congrats to UCONN Huskies Women's Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma for getting named Coach of the USA Basketball Women's National Team. Should all fall into place, Auriemma will lead them to the win at the Olympics in London 2012!)
