It's official...I'm going to attend the Romantic Times Conference in May. Just bought my airline tickets and registered for the conference.

I need to say a public thank you to my husband here. Making reservations and trying to decide between this flight or that one and waiting through the load-in times as I change from one to another trying to find the best deal...gives me a gigantic headache. After ten minutes, the numbers start to blur and I just want to take the computer monitor and send it through the window. Especially when I find the flights I want and then get the, "I'm sorry, we cannot process your flight at the moment. Try again on Tuesday when the moon is full and Mars descends to Earth."

Okay, so I'm being a bit sarcastic. The error message isn't nearly so mythic. I'm a bit cranky and out of patience. So Thank You, honey! You found flights that get me where I need to be with a minimum of fuss. So come on, May! I'm ready to party in Daytona Beach!

Been working hard...am trying to write a book in a month. It's not a new concept, although I've never tried it before. Hope I end up with decent material! Won't give any spoilers just yet...it's only the 12th and there are still 2 1/2 weeks to the month...anything could happen!

Off to watch the second half of Return of the King...I love Tolkien and enjoy Peter Jackson's movies. Yes, I own the extended edition. Yes, I've watched every single extra on the DVD...not only for this movie, but for all three. Yes, that makes me a Tolkien geek...and I'm proud of it!

Till later, play safe,
Diana

Yay! I'm hoping to get down to RT for at least one day - it's about an hour to 90 minute drive, depending on traffic, from here. Hope to meet you there! Will definately get a thread going over on Diva's before the big week.

Cool, Karen! When you get that thread up, be sure to email me or leave a note here...I'd love to stop in and say hey. I look forward to seeing you in sunny Daytona!
