We are the Champions!

What a great week this is!!! So many exciting things going on. I decided to do something I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. I gave notice and I will officially retire next month. October 2009 was too far away and the negative energy at Camp Swampy was pulling me down. Right now I feel like someone who’s been let out of prison after 26 years. I plan to enjoy every minute of freedom.

One of the things I planned to do in November was NaNoWriMo. I signed up but I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with it. Between the full time day job, the new workshop that starts November first and my WIP (work in progress) I wasn’t too optimistic about sticking with it. Now I can give it a real shot. I’ll post my progress here on my blog. Wish me luck.

I’m sure you know by now that our Philadelphia Phillies are world champions. After a suspended game that left us biting our nails for 46 hours the Phillies vanquished the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3. Closer Brad Lidge was perfect, striking out Eric Hinske to cinch the win. The city went nuts. It was a great moment – one we’ll savor for a long time.
So October 2008 ends on a great note. I hope everyone’s November gets off to a bang-up start.
