On my way to ALA #alamw17

20 Jan


Today is mostly a travel day.

Lucy was dropped off at Sniff Dog Hotel last night.



She was sad & trembly, which made me sad, but I know she will be well cared for and have a good time. We arrived as people were picking up their dogs from daycare. I hope Lucy greets me as excitedly as the dogs we saw greeted their people.

When I got home from dropping her off, I  had dinner and packed my bag.

I was up very early this morning to make my 5:45 flight. I’ve never been to Atlanta. I was supposed to go to an NCTM conference there over 10 years ago, but a recurrence of a MRSA infection kept me grounded. My doctor said no flying, so I didn’t get to go.

I won’t get to see much of the city, but I have a reception Friday night at World of Coca Cola (thank you Penguin Random House). I hope to have some good meals, hear about some great books and meet some authors.

I packed  Bone and Bread by Saleema Nawaz for the flights to Atlanta.


Stay tuned for my further adventures in Atlanta.
