Here is a quick blog before I hit the road…So I found out today that Joe and I are going to Washington D.C. since we will be in the area and have a couple days off at that time. Why this is exciting, one word; SMITHSONIAN. I have always dreamed of going to this museum, way before Night at the Museum came out. I’m a nerd, I know. A dream freaking come true!
Of course the rest of D.C. will be worth the visit just for the monuments and such, but nothing tops the Smithsonian. I really can’t wait to take a bunch of pics to share on my instagram and my blog. I’m more excited than a kid on Christmas morning. When I was 14 I had mapped out this road trip I wanted to take and the Smithsonian was on that list. Alone with a few other places like New Orleans, and New York. Okay so I’m 2 for three…not too shabby.
Perhaps one day I will make it to New Orleans, but I’ve got bigger fish to fry. 😉 Though I am not thrilled about North Dakota, It’s worth it just to be able to see all these places that I want to see. I’m still nervous about the subway in New York, but I can’t wait to experience it all and to see Grand Central Station.
Also, I am hoping that while I am out on the road that I will get good news from the publisher that I submitted my story to. I am very proud of it and that would just really make this the best experience ever. I let a pal of mine, who is a published author read it, and she said that she loved it. That means a lot to me. I believe that God was behind this stroke of awesomeness that has happened as of late. It kind of makes all of the bad stuff going on a little easier to deal with. The few other people that I have let read it were really happy with it, too. I currently do not have time to work on novels, but children’s picture books will have to do in the meantime.
Now, I need to stop procrastinating and get to finishing up packing and getting ready. It’s a long drive to West Virginia. I hope to update you all soon…at least when I get to see or do something exciting…or if I just have something to say. 🙂
