Things Change in an Instant

Well, looks like there's a storm brewin! My plans are changing for vacation. Instead of leaving on Wednesday, I will be traveling on Tuesday. Instead of leaving from Birmingham, I will be leaving from Nashville! This is, of course, all thanks to Gustav, the Cat 3 hurricane that is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. By the way, I have found that I am obsessed with the Weather channel, but only when a hurricane is coming. What is it about natural disasters that makes a body so interested? I sure hope and pray that the city of Nawlin's will be able to ride this one out better than they did in 2005 with Katrina.
So, back to my trip, our destination of Dallas TX will be leading me through places that I have never been before. We will go west across Tennessee and travel through Memphis. I have always wanted to go to Memphis. I've always wanted to walk on Beale St. or tour Elvis' cheesy mansion. Maybe someday, huh? From Memphis, we will be going southwest through the state of Arkansas. Never been here either! The way it looks on the map we will be driving horizontally through the state and go through Little Rock. I don't know much about Little Rock, in fact, the only time I know that I have ever brought it up is when I was singing Reba's song about it. Now, that I think about that song, I don't think it has much to do with the city!!
Ok, so just know that my itinerary has changed however my destination remains the same! I can't wait to see my sister and brother!!!!!!
The next update should probably come from Dallas, TX where I will be discussing how much rain and wind we had to drive through to get there! :)

For my Mom!!



Hello to all,
Since I am new to this whole blog thing, I thought I would give it a try over my summer vacation and see how it goes. Here is the background so you will know the who, what, where, when, etc. My Dad lives out in a suburb of Dallas, TX. The Dallas area is an awesome place to find tons of stuff to do. I won't spoil any surprises but we have a lot of things planned for the 7 days we will be out there. I bet you are wondering who this "we" person is! My friend Leslie!!!!
Leslie and I met in nursing school back in 2004. We attended a community college in Tuscaloosa, AL and have been besties since that time. We also attempted RN school together, but she made it through and I did not. :( That is a story for another time though. Anyway, we are leaving early Wednesday morning just me, Leslie, and my little child, Maggie. Maggie is not an actual child, she is my miniature Schnauzer. As soon as I can, I will put pictures of her on here. She is precious.
So, I am so ready for the 10+ hour road trip. I probably won't update before then because I have to work 4 12-hr shifts starting tonight!
