Things have been a little hectic around here between Christian's trip to Nachitoches and my upcoming trip to Miami. I have been stressed out and totally preoccupied with work and the timing isn't great because there is plenty going on around here - but I suppose that is the way that life works. And I guess it isn't fair to say that it has been THAT busy because I did have time to see Wicked with mom on Thursday night - it was excellent and far exceeded my expectations - had dinner with Molly's friend, Jeremy, who is in town for the story corps project - check it out at www.storycorps.com, took James on his first streetcar ride (he was absolutely terrified at first - I guess Mr. Tough Stuff does have some fear), and spent hours outside enjoying some incredible weather.

I am looking forward to seeing Miami. I have always wanted to check it out, but wish it could be under different circumstances. I would prefer to have Christian with me and to see it without the stress of work hanging over me. I also don't think I will have too much free time, but I am going to try to fit in a quick trip to South Beach.
