On the Road

Well people, tomorrow morning I'm on the road to Southern CA to visit some family that I rarely get to see anymore. It should be a fun trip, and you can see how badly I need the vacation!

Before I go, I've been meaning to do this meme that I've seen on a few others' blogs...

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the next 3 sentences.
Post the name of the book and the author.
Tag three people.

Here goes:
By the following week, he was too ill to even look at illustrations for a book that was about to be published. Harriet Otis Smith wrote to one of his editiors, "It is a question - as always in pneumonia - as to how long an already weakened heart can stand the strain." The answer turned out to be not very long at all.

Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her
by Melanie Rehak

Now, I'm going to tag Joie, Caitlin and Calamity Jen. Have fun guys! (And please forgive me!)

Now I'm off to bed so I can be ready for a long drive in the am...I wonder how long it will be before my mother is asleep in the passenger seat...(it never took long when we were on long trips during my childhood, only I wasn't driving). Oh yeah, and there will be some sort of caffeine involved!

I am going to interpret that as the nearest of my books, because I am not quoting from my husbands Starcraft manual just because he didn't put it away!!

:P

Have a fun trip! (Staying in a mansion.... Sorry, inside joke)

This is a MUCH NEEDED trip for you! Have fun!! Maybe I'll pass you on the freeway down there, when I fly down to SoCA this weekend. (highly doubtful, but you never know....)

When driving in, I totally forgot you wouldn't be here today (sniff sniff). I miss you! It's so quiet!!!
