BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Happy Trails

As many of you know I am leaving Wednesday morning for a long awaited, much anticipated adventure.
I'm flying to Anchorage for the start of the 2009 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. I have been a race fan for many years and I'm thrilled to finally make this dream come true. I'm not taking a laptop so there will be no posts until I return next week.

This is a great site for watching Saturday's start on 4th Ave. in downtown Anchorage. (Better than the one I originally posted)

I plan to be there sometime Saturday, waving to all my Arctic Camster/Blogger/Hometown buddies.
I'm posting a picture of my "Race Day" apparel, so you might recognize me from all the other bundled-up fans. (Thx for the cool hat, Sista-Sue)

As excited as I am, I hate leaving my family (Hubby and dogs). They will get along fine without me, I only wish you could explain to pets why you won't be around and, more importantly, that you will return. I realize that dogs live in the moment and it is us humans who have separation anxiety issues. At least this is a vacation where there will be an abundance of dogs. (But that's our secret, right?)

Well, I didn't see you downtown, but what a glorious start. I was so caught up in it!!

You are going to the actual start in Wasilla too, right? I am heading to Vegas later today, so I need to get packing!

Did you see the Palins?

I am glad you got to live out your dream. Alaska sure did reward you with a glorious day...pics on my blog.

May you have a wonderful trip.

I know you will have so much fun and you'll finally get to see lots of snow.

Your doggies and hubby will be so happy to see you when you get home.
