I'm somebody now!

I came back to school today to a present in my office. No, the library elves did not come in overnight and catalog the backlog of books I have piled up in here but I did find a box. A brown, heavy box full of books. My books. Click here and scroll down to the third book.

*eep*

4 years in the making and it's really here. I got my advance copy a while ago but there is nothing like opening a case of books to see your name on the cover of each and every one of them.

Well, expect for doing a Google search and finding your book ONLINE!!! There has got to be some way we can get B&N to carry it. I feel there is more good to come of this book. Seeing it reminds me of how, in the days following Katrina, I wished I could do something to help those people, to help them heal. This may be it. I know it helped us.

I'll take a picture and post it when I get home.

I had no idea!

I had no idea!

I blogged this from Word. After installing the plug-in for Word, I installed it, opened Word, logged in from Word and began typing. And hit Publish. Yeah, it was that easy! Who knew!?!?

Making noise ...

Just because I can!

Yes, it is just this easy to set up a blog. It took me all of 3 minutes to set this up through Blogger.

Full speed ahead ...

As the semester winds down, I find my project schedule is just winding up. I've turned in 7 assignments in the last 2 days, including a PowerPoint, 3 short papers, a template and two essays. One more 2 page paper and I'm done until the Benchmark project is due on December 7th.

Oh, yeah, and I have to do the work for my other class, too. *ahem*

Ok, so maybe the dent is just a scratch, but it's something and it's more than what I had done at the beginning of the long weekend. The biggest hurdle was getting my HEAD back into my schoolwork. I'm there, though ...
