Good, happy Sunday morning, all my wonderful friends!!!

I am giving you a forewarning that due to the threat, again, of severe thunderstorms for tonight, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I'll probably be posting the Awardee Showcase #11 later this evening instead of tomorrow morning.  I'm so afraid that with the severity of the last storm, if any of these predicted severe storms are of any equivalence to the last one, the possibility exisits that we may again have a power outage.  (I was pretty fortunate because there are still thousands of people here who are still without power.)  Also during severe storms, I become idle due to my religious beliefs; therefore, I wouldn't be active on the internet (or my computer) anyway.  I do not want to take any chances that the showcase possibly could not be postponed until after Wednesday, so I plan to pre-publish the awardees around 7 p.m. central time tonight.  My thinking ahead may/may not be necessary; however, the weather is so unpredictable and because I still have a few more papers to complete typing for my son, I just want to cover as many basis as I can before theses expected storms arrive.

On a good note, I finally got myself registered for the CHA and scheduled the workshops I'll be taking, and I also made my hotel reservation.  The convention center is about an hour's drive from me but with having to take the expressways to get there could take several hours due to the heavy, congested traffic (and right now there's construction everywhere which slows traffic even more), so it'll just be easier for me to stay over instead of trying to drive back and forth.  I'm already excited about it, and having to wait until the end of July is going to be almost excruciating!!!  LOL!!!  I'm so happy it's here in Illinois this year!!!

Are any of you planning on attending?  It would be so wonderful to meet you!!!  Please let me know if you are.

Well, I better go!  I have quite a bit to try to accomplish before anythings starts to happen tonight!  I did try to visit as many of you as I could last night and will try to get to some of today, if possible.  But, if I miss anyone, I will get to you -- I promise.  Now if you don't hear from me in the next few days, you have an idea as to why.  I don't want you to think I'm ignoring  or have forgotten you because that would not happen.  Of course, I hope it won't be as bad as predicted but as the city is still recuperating from the last storm, I don't see where another storm -- or more -- can help what is already a devastating situation for some.  One of my neighbors has a tree threatening to fall into the living room of her home and the city has no idea when they can get to her  because downed and/or broken trees and electricial wires lying on the ground are a threat throughout the city right now.  So, I don't want to take any chances or make any assumptions.  So..., until...

I'll be seeing you!

Sorry lots of typos in the post. Too tired to catch them 'til it was too late, I guess.
