carrie missed the 9 am flight out of vancouver by just minutes...finally found another flight and as far as i know should be on her way BACK to vancouver already with the cats.
i won't relax til everyone is safe and sound here...hope it will be soon.
the pacific palisades has asked us to come to a meeting tomorrow at 11am at the hotel to brain storm ideas for dedicating their february month of charity fundraising for saints and in the memory of hannah...this is so very kind of them.
it put me in a bit of a flap tho...i am quite the farm hick now. when i asked them where was the closest parking to the hotel, they said not to worry, just pull up to the front door and someone will take care of my car for me. hmmm...has anyone seen my van in the past couple of years? it is truly a very scary thing...i am not sure the poor person who is stuck with taking care of it will ever recover again. soooo...carmen helped me clean it out...it still looks like crap but less crappy than it did before. urban cars and country rescue cars are like women from venus and men from mars!
and i just know their folks are going to be dressed very nice..so i am freaking out because i don't live in that world and will look like someone from somewhere WAYYY out there....it ought to be interesting to say the least. but i will tell you what i do really like about this...tomorrow two polar worlds apart (sophisticated and not in the least) are going to be meeting for one common thing.....working together in an old crippled pound dog's memory towards helping others just like her....i think it might just make my eyes leak.
wish us luck...mo, sheila, renee and nicole are coming as part of the saints brainstorming team...they get the urban connection thing, they are the brains representing saints in this endeavor...i am coming and i am bringing lexi cuz we represent the simple and basic reality of what this really means.
sigh...i better go dig around and see if i have anything even close to ok to wear.
