Ok - so I've spent a little too much time playing today! I found a new site - meez.com - create your own avatar. Don't go there unless you have a little time to waste!

As many know, lately my life has been a rollercoaster ride. Lots of ups and downs. my great-grandma passed away Saturday, September 15, on Monday the 17th I was on WLKY morning show promoting the upcoming auction, then in Dallas the evening of the 17th for a national KFC meeting - lots of work to that - late nights and early mornings. Back in town on Thursday for an auction and a 20th Anniversary party of the old ad agency I used to work at. Then Friday I had a job interview and set-up for the 2-day auction that was Saturday and Sunday - and successful I might add!
There's just a lot ... and sometimes it's good to slow down and have some conversation with friends (which I am so looking forward to this week!). But I can always count on my Melody (the calico). She loves to talk, especially when she's asking for running water from the bathroom sink!
And my Maestro -- he's my baby boy and loves to be cuddled! Even though this picture doesn't show indication of that!

As most of you are aware by now, Round 2 has started at GCC! It was great last night. And for those of you who were not able to make it - Chad has a link to subscribe to the podcasts on his blog. There were 82 people attending last night! That was fantastic! Even without the high schoolers - I believe we hit a record high for a Wednesday night!

As much as I don't like my job, there are certain perks I absolutely adore...like when I get to travel. It's not real often, but it allows for a free plane ride! And I love to fly! I know a lot of people who are scared of it, but I simply adore going above the clouds (especially those big fluffy ones). I love the takeoff - the power of it - and that point when complete engine power is no longer necessary and you are at a high-enough altitude that you seem to slow down (when in fact you're going faster). But the feeling is like going over one of the "seven sisters" (my backroads set of hills that make you come out of your seat when you go over them too fast) When I see the clouds below my feet - I can't help but to think of heaven each time I'm up there. Will we get a taste of that - the clouds beneath our feet? I know plenty of people think above God when they're up there - more out of fear than anything - but I feel tangibly closer to Him when the clouds are beneath my feet.
