It is almost time for me to head out to the city of lights, as I have heard it referred to multiple times today. I spent last night and most of today getting my sub plans ready for next week. I head out at 4:45 p.m. on Sunday from Longview. We will fly to Dallas and have a short layover there, then we fly out to Las Vegas. We should be arriving in Las Vegas around 9:45 p.m. Sunday night. I am going with the school~~Aunt Patti, Lauren (our principal) and two other teachers are also going. We are going to a conference for Magnet Schools of America. Now, as much as I hate my job, I love all of the training and workshops I get to go to. I get trained in all kinds of things and get to go places! I can definitely use the training that I have received when I apply for a job somewhere else....maybe this summer! I am nervous about the flying part of the trip, because (if you know me) you know I will more than likely get airsick. That is not exciting or fun for me, but Aunt Patti has informed me that I will be fine....I think that is mostly because she is not wanting to sit next to someone who is about to vomit! What do you think? I am excited about taking pictures and just enjoying a city I have never visited before.....(watch, and at some point Michael will write me trying to convince me that we vacationed there as children and I must be crazy not to remember THAT trip....but WHATEVER!) I will take as many pics as possible and hopefully I will have a good story or two to write about when I get home (nothing could be as funny to Michael as me getting stuck on the loop around Houston, though, I am sure). I fly back next Thursday and should be in Longview by 4:00 pm....so hasta la vista.....until next time!
