OK... caught up on some overdue LJ reading...

Leaving on Wednesday for Mardi Gras (New Orleans)!! Whoo hoo!
Quite excited about it. A little nervous -- travel nerves and wondering what-all we will do down there for the weekend... My friend sent an itinerary this morning scoping-out all of our plans and that really helped put it into perspective that there's lots to do and I'll be with good company (fun and knows what to do there). The plans really helped ease my concerns about "what will we be doing while there".

A little nervous about spending "so much" money when I really don't have it. But I'm not going to think about financial stuff while there... will have taxes and bonus coming in a month to help with all that... so yay for credit cards.

Other than travel nerves, another thing kind of causing a little trepidation about the trip: clothes. I need more comfortable clothes. Or, I need to loose weight to make my clothes more comfortable. But, I'm also not going to think about that... I'll take what I do have that's comfortable and just make-do.

I'm very excited about the trip... a whole weekend of travel and fun and adventure. I've told a couple people that it's a "Girl's Weekend" because I'm going without Barry. I feel a little weird about the fact that I'm going without him... it will be my first trip / weekend without him in a very long time... like two years?? He's going to Boston for the weekend... which I feel a little jealous about... is that odd? I guess it's only human.



In other news:

We got a small camera (Olympus Stylus 760) for us to be able to take pictures on trips and such without me having to lug around my Canon 20D. I'm excited about the new toy. Barry's taking it to Boston... I'll take my Canon with me to Mardi Gras... but it's always so heavy to be walking around with it... but I feel photographic right now. However, I'm sure after a few hurricanes I won't be thinking of being artistic with a camera.

Barry got a job (starting in a week or two?) -- yay! Hopefully the debt hole we've fallen into will go away over the next few months with two incomes again.

Went up to the campground two weekends ago to check on our site... all is well -- a little snow cover on the ground -- the camper looked so "sleepy".

Speaking of The Woods, I've been hard at work developing new things for the website. Most recently: the photo gallery, which is dynamic so that the owner can upload and label the photos and "for-sale" items. I've been up late working on that and some other "geeky-fun" things. I *heart* web development.
