Mississippi Bound

Just found out this weekend that I'm going to Mississippi on Thursday! I'll be spending a few days down there in the comparatively warm temperatures visiting my pal, author Katie Reus, and I can't wait! Well, I mean I'm not looking forward to the flights, which is why my hubby didn't tell me until Saturday afternoon even though he booked the ticket for me in early December. Gives me less time to stress, was his reasoning.

Not sure what we'll wind up doing down there exactly, but I don't really care as long as we get to hang out together. At some point she'll probably wind up tying me to a chair someplace to make me bang out another chapter while I'm there. She's tough like that ;) Plus she keeps freaky weird hours and gets more done by 7 am than most people do in an entire business day. I have high hopes she'll let me sleep in until 7 every morning, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

I don't know if I can interest her in doing some Civil War site tours or maybe a day trip into New Orleans, but for sure I'm going to insist we go eat at a BBQ place we ate at last time down there. My man is gonna be so jealous!

So everyone please send good thoughts and flap your arms for me on Thursday. Uh, and when I fly home on the 17th, too. I'd appreciate it!

I can't wait to see you! You don't know how hard it was to keep it a secret that I knew the dates you were visiting. And yeah, I might let you sleep in until 7 but that's as late as I'll go, lol :)

I'm so glad you're going to get to spend some time down here! I know you'll have a wonderful time. And I'll definitely flap my arms for you! *hugs*

Thanks, Nissie! I'm here safe and sound, after a very looooong day, which will require another blog post.
By "down here", are you saying you live down in this neck of the woods as well? I thought you were much further NE!

Glad to hear it! And I'm looking forward to updates. I'm in North Carolina. Not exactly close, but still in the south. :)

Hope the weather is good for your visit. We had thunderstorms last night and snow, sleet AND hail tonight! It's almost scary, I tell ya.

Enjoy your trip, sweetie *hugs*
