Let's catch up, shall we!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I'll give you the run down of my past week.

Well, I flew for the first time since my Junior year of high school. That was about 6-7 years ago...needless to say, I was freaked out. I was doing okay until I got onto the plane. That's when it got hard to catch my breath, I had to concentrate on slowing my heart rate down and I felt as if I might projectile vomit. I was sitting on the same row as my boss, with a seat in between us. When the plane shot off down the runway, going from about 0-2,000 mph in about 3 seconds...it forced tears out of my eyes. That's when the flood gates opened. I was balling...sitting next to my boss. I kept my face plastered to the window in hopes that no one would see me crying. My boss called out my name - I ignored it - figuring he wouldn't ask again. He did - I ignored it again. So then, he tapped me on the shoulder. No ignoring that one. I turned towards him and that's when he saw that my face had exploded into streaming tears and red blotches. Fabulous. He looked at me for a moment - processing the hideous sight - and then frantically called to co-worker sitting behind us - "Nance? Nance!!! Do you have any tissues?!?!?!"

I stopped crying eventually (thank goodness) and managed to take this picture



When we got to Annapolis, the retreat was (suprising) fun! We had meetings during the days and great dinners at night. We got to tour the MD State Capitol building which was very informative and exciting. On the last day, several of us took a boat tour around the harbor, where we were able to see the US Naval Academy...and some of the attractive people who attend.... ;)


Here are some pictures:






























































Anyway, I was supposed to spend some time in D.C. with a friend of mine and catch a flight on Sunday back to Nashville. I rearranged this when I heard that I would be able to start moving into my condo. It was too late to rearrange my rearranged flight when I founf out that there were some minor construction clitches.

So, now I am looking at closing on my condo on October 21 - about two weeks from now. What sucks, is that I have so many of my things already packed. I'm having to unpack, only to repack in two weeks.

Oh well. I'm sure things could be worse. :)

For those of you who are interested in my A-typical, pre-cancerous mole that has to be removed - the surgery is being done this coming Monday (October 10) at 7:00 AM. Send chocolates, flowers and the like...if you feel so inclined.
