I meant to get this posted this morning but ran out of time (and battery juice) so I am sending it on now 🙂
I am sitting in the lobby of the Sheraton, listening to Coldplay and reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (which I will be blogging about later – awesome book). There was a fire on the legendary Sixth Street and several businesses were affected.
TCEA was enjoyable and I learned some new things. I have blogged my notes and will try to round up the links that I found, I have enjoyed my first stuffed avocado at Trudy’s (yum) and visited with friends, shopped, had a Hula Hut and Mozarts night (thanks Tony and Paige!) and just had a very nice trip. The company on the ride down and back was great (thanks Paula and Missi!) and it was good to get to know some folks better.
On the ride home we stopped for lunch at Freebirds and had a discussion about Stuckeys which had Missi googling on her phone for more information. We all had fond memories of their divinity. There was the traditional stop at West (I did eat a cream cheese kolache – NOT diet food) and a stop for cold medicine for Paula.
I’m now looking forward to a peaceful weekend, laundry, sleeping in my own bed, and getting back to my walking routine. Monday will be here before I know it but I think I will be a bit nicer, a bit more enthusiastic, and have a few ideas for some things to share with teachers. I’d say it was worth the trip 🙂
