Lots O' Tidbits

It's hard to believe it's been nine months since I left Huntsville. Wow! But at the same time, it seems like such a lifetime ago! You know what's cool? We work through CNN for a lot of stuff, and it's always cool when I'm looking through video and I recognize a reporter's voice...I used a story in my newscast today from Huntsville...a reporter there did the story. It's just neat to me how even though you leave, you're still somewhat connected. Speaking of my job, it is going great! I absolutely love it here. I really hope I can stay here for quite some time. There were some rocky points, but most of those seem to be working themselves out...we'll see what happens in the future, but right now, I couldn't ask for anything better.

Guess what! I am on the committee planning my 10-year class reunion. I never thought I would be on that committee, but now that I am, it's kind of fun! We're having a planning meeting tomorrow. I will have to be on the phone, since I live so far away. I just hope it goes well. When you're from a small town, like I am, people really look forward to reunions. We were all like family in high school, and it's always great to be able to see each other again. And our reunion is going on during homecoming weekend, so we will be able to enjoy homecoming festivities, too. We have set up a blog where folks can go to get information about the reunion. Stop by at .

I am either an idiot or really brave. I bought plane tickets yesterday...the same day the new terror plot was thwarted. I kept asking myself, "Do I really want to do this," but I have been planning this trip for quite some time and had to make the reservations before ticket prices went up. I am going to San Francisco next month. I am so excited! My dad used to live out there. He moved about three years ago, and I haven't been back out there since. I have two friends who live out there, so I am staying with one of them. I am so excited. I do realize how nervous I will be getting on the planes, but I refuse to allow fear to keep me from doing something I really want to do. San Francisco is the most beautiful city! I love it there!

My best friend is about to have a baby. She emailed me yesterday and told me the baby probably would come within the next two weeks...which is earlier than expected. I'm so excited for her! She has a little boy, and now her first little girl will enter the world!

My sister is planning to come see me Labor Day weekend! This will be the first time we've seen each other in a VERY long it's really great. I can't wait to see her! I miss her terribly!
