Eczema, Eczema, Eczema!

It's getting worse. Scratch, scratch, scratch. Scratch, SCRATCH, SCRATCH!!!!!

I'm tired tonight but looking forward to going to my first Geocaching event in about a year. It's in downtown Atlanta and I don't plan to do much more than hold down a chair, but I'm looking forward to some fun and seeing friends I haven't seen in AGES. Saturday, I'm headed to do something I want to do and see friends and meet new friends in a way that I did BEFORE cancer -- like in my life might be approaching something I'd consider NORMAL! Ok, well, closer to normal -- for me. I never claimed to be truely "normal."

Before school starts back, I'd like to travel somewhere cool and exotic. Probably not Europe because the exchange rate is so awful right now with the weak dollar. Where would be an interesting, but not too challenging place to go to for a few days? If I stay in the US, what would be a cool place to visit that I haven't already visited? If I go somewhere out of the country, where? What would I see there? I have about six weeks left to have a little fun before my life is locked into the school year. All suggestions appreciated.

Wow, it does sound like your life is getting back to normal, planning for school, taking a trip. Do you want to drive or fly? A drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway is always so peaceful and beautiful, it goes for 460 miles, with lots of scenic and historic places along the way. But with the gas prices, that might not be an option. Hope you enjoy it, where ever you go!

I hate to tell you this, but they aren't predicting the exchange rate or the weak dollar to improve any time soon. Why not throw caution to the wind and go on that Ireland trip you mentioned to me?

If you have to stay in the country, I've always thought that visiting Amish country would be a nice relaxing trip.

Or maybe the mountains in Montana - I had a friend who lived there for several years and she said it was the most beautiful land you've ever seen. Wyoming, too.

Let me know if you decide to go and I'll feed the kitties while you are gone!
