Well, I did it....I finally booked my flight to Orlando. :-)

I'll be there from Thursday, January 13th through Tuesday the 18th. I'm going for a softball tournament, so my time will mostly be spent on the fields (assuming we don't lose immediately) but I'll have a couple of days to spend with my teammates, which should be fun.

Sadly, Jim isn't coming with me. :-(
Typically, at tournaments, we spend a whole lot of time on the fields - either playing or waiting....and, he'd probably end up either going out and doing stuff alone - or waiting around until we're done playing, and there's no fun in that.

The interesting thing is that my neice and her competition dance team are going to be performing in Downtown Disney the same weekend we're there. Since we're staying so close to Disney, it's entirely possible that I'll get to see her show. If we're eliminated from the tournament early (as we unfortunately have been in the past) there's a possibility that I would be available on Sunday afternoon and could catch her performance. I'm not going to make any defininte plans, but I'll be in touch with my sister and dad, who will be there to see her perform. If it all works out, that would be VERY cool...BUT - I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Anyway, that's the latest and greatest from my lil' corner of the world.

I'm trying to keep myself busy and entertained in hopes that the day will go by quicker....tick tock...

Sounds like a great trip. I was just in Orlando last month on business -- and happened to be there while the city hit record-low temps. It was sunny -- but below freezing two mornings. bring your long johns!
