Clover Choco-Paws

In 12 hours, my taxi comes to take me to heaven. I better get packing. Kelsey is packed, of course. She packed last week.

I spoke with the Easter Bunny earlier tonight, and she will not forget us on Easter. She is very excited to come to our house.

I covered a cool story this week. The night editor decided it wasn't so cool and didn't run it. I asked about it, and it ran without photos today. People at work said it was a great story that screamed for art. I agree. Apparently the other daily ran a story with cool photos yesterday. We would have beat them to it if they had run my story with those nifty photos on Wednesday morning. Them's the breaks.

A while back, I got an email that I had been nominated for an award at school, an Outstanding Returning Adult Student Award. I had to write a five-page essay answering a number of questions. The winner would get $1,000. Today I got the paper that said I did not win. I'm not surprised. I've only been back for a semester, and I will graduate in December. And I don't face the hardships that previous winners have. I didn't come here as a widow with seven children from a small African country that's been in the midst of civil war for years. I'm just a mom doing a little to get off her dead ass.

I better get packing. Have a good week or two.

Have a great vacation. Does Eric get to play, too, or is he conferencing?
