T-Minus 2 days until my big adventure

Let the weekend begin!!!  It's going to be a bit of a short one for me, considering I'm leaving long before the sun comes up Sunday to head to New York, butttt… I'll take what I can get. :)  I have a lot of work I SHOULD stay to do tonight so as to avoid becoming a walking zombie next week, (wait for it… here comes the "but" again) butttttt… I really just feel the need to go home and unwind for a few hours.  I will pay for this later, mark my words!!!

The plan is for me to drive all day Sunday and end up in New York hopefully at an hour early enough for me to get a good night's rest.  Then Monday, I'm going to be shadowing some of our local Red Cross volunteers as they do their thing helping Hurricane Sandy victims.  There are still quite a few unknowns to this loosely-crafted adventure.  For one, I don't really know where I'm staying when I get there.  And by "there", I mean somewhere in New York State, probably not too far from NYC.  My family thinks I'm crazy.  Maybe I am.  But, I think it'll be a pretty cool experience for me.   A good story to tell the grandkids one day:)  If I call the newsroom crying because I'm lost and out of gas somewhere in New Jersey… I guess we'll know my "plan" didn't really work out!  Ha!

Well, wish me luck.  Say a quick prayer if you think of it.  I'll take as many as I can get!

Thanks so much and enjoy the weekend.  Can you believe we're just a few days from Thanksgiving??  I'll be back and finished with my story just in time!

Until next time,

Erin

    We're three weeks away from the first day for many schools in Illinois. Along with the excitement that a new school year brings, there's a lot of concern about money.
