Something to look forward to

Well, it's official, I'm going to Florida on Halloween. I leave on the evening of Oct. 30 and get in fairly late that evening. I'll spend all day Fri, Sat. and Sunday there and return Monday afternoon. Marty will have to pick me up in Miami. It was cheaper to fly in there than directly to Key West. I just hope that there are no hurricanes planning to come through then. I tried to find other days to go... especially around Christmas, but it was just too expensive.
Today I went to the library and got some work done. I outlined my paper and realized what information I still needed. I started the paper with several blanks that need to be filled in. I think it will be o.k. I do have enough information to write a thorough paper I think. Thankfully the due date has been extended. I finished one of the chapter books that I needed to read for my children's lit class and I didn't care much for it. It was o.k. but it seemed to be a knock off of Harry Potter and it wasn't as well written as Rowling's books. I hate to be comparative, but I just didn't care for it. I have a lot more to read so I'm going to try to do some reading every evening. I don't know if I'll get to my journals this weekend. I need to concentrate on the paper for the other class. Tomorrow after church I'm going to go back to the library where I can hopefully continue to get more work done. We're supposed to have a pot luck tomorrow evening at the church. I'm not sure what I'll bring.
Well, I'm going to head to bed. It's getting late.

"Key West" ... whow! Some day I will be able to travel, I swear it. Good to see that this Ike-storm is not affecting you. Reading is work too!

I am so excited you and Marty are going to spend some time together. I hope the relationship blossoms. You will need a break by then from school and grad school. Kudos to you!

You are going to have such a good time. Especially since you will be with your sweetie. I am so happy you will be able to have some down time. It will be here before you know it.
