Blast off! April 13, 2011 I am soon blasting off for the U.S. of A. Actually - I was supposed to blast off today but my flight was cancelled! That has NEVER happened to me before. Sigh... I am NEVER flying United again! So I now have an extra day to look forward to my trip - Springtime, SCBWI regional conference near Seattle, seeing family, a music festival, and lots of general merriment. Can't wait to get there!
