"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

News and Questions and Updates...Oh My!

I'm so proud of my mommy. She got appointed to the NC Governor's Teacher Advisory Committee. The head of the NCAE recommended her for this appointment. I'm so glad she is getting the recognition she so richly deserves.

I am so excited. I have found a super cheap yet nice way to get to NYC for BlogHer. I did a search for bus fares to NY and found a site called GotoBus. They deal with charter bus services and I can get a round trip ticket from Raleigh to NYC for only $60 and travel time is only 9 hours one way.

I finished my first knit project. It's just a simple garter stitch scarf done with two strands of yarn but, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

If any of y'all are on Ravelry, can you tell me what your Ravelry ID is? You can find me under the user name dragondreamer.

What's going on in your life right now?
