Preparing for Alaska

Monday, June 29, 2009

I'll keep this short and sweet because I don't have time for anything else! So much to do today, as I'm down to the wire preparing to leave for the great state of Alaska early Wednesday morning. Today will be spent in part doing something I should have started already: packing! Of course, there's still some last minute things to pick up and arrange, but hey...that's the way it goes with me. I was waiting for school to end so I could switch gears. I figured once the students were out the door I could get myself together. School ended Thursday, and still I'm having a hard time with getting moving on the packing. The whole idea of going to Alaska is so HUGE in my mind, I suppose, that I've delayed taking even the initial step of putting even one item in the luggage! I mean, how does one pack for a whole month?! The answer is: You don't! Instead, you do laundry while you're there!

So today is about moving and shaking, baby! Let's get 'er done.

I am so grateful to God for this wonderful door He has opened. One day I'll have to share how it all unfolded--every step. It's an amazing story still being written. But for now, I ask for your prayers as I get through just today--because if I don't get moving, I won't be prepared to go anywhere Wednesday!

How exciting to be making a trip here to Alaska! And for a month, enjoy your stay. I live in Wasilla and if you are doing any community meetings/photo ops/ etc. Let me know! You have a great site and even though this is only the 2nd time I have commented , know that I am a loyal reader of everything you post. Have a great trip!!!!

Thank you, Rosie,

I am so glad you enjoy this blog--and I appreciate whenever anyone takes time to comment.

So you live in Wasilla. It would be great to meet you. I am flying into Fairbanks, but will get into Wasilla on the 4th in time to be in the parade. I will be there in Wasilla for a few days before taking off again, then returning to Wasilla at some point before moving on somewhere else. I don't even know all the places I'll be traveling, but I know I'll love it all!

One of my Wasilla contacts told me I will be easy to spot at the 4th of July festivities(LOL!), so please make a point of coming over and saying "Hi."

See you soon.

I will be at the parade and be sure to head on over to the park afterwards and track you down. I just hope I don't ask too many ladies if they are Adrienne before I find you!:)

Have a nice flight!

Rosie,

I will assume you're joking. According to my friend there, you won't have the slightest problem finding which one is Adrienne! LOL! Now, I'm just going by what he said. You know better than I! Ha! All joking aside, I look forward to meeting you.

God bless you.
