How happy does this make me? Very, very happy!
I am out of my mind excited to have in my possession the premiere issue of Grey's Anatomy, The Official Magazine. I'm trying my best to hold off curling up in my cozy chair to read it front to back because I'm trying to save it for reading on the plane today. However, I've leafed through the pages, and all I can say is, "Whoa... talk about some serious eye candy." This magazine has it all - pictures, articles, inside scoop, notes about the music, notes about the Podcasts, notes from Joe's bar, shopping, and did I mention pictures? Lots and lots of great pictures.
When one considers that a magazine dedicated to a single television show is all it takes to make me feel like dancing... clearly, I have lost my mind. But, hey - I've admitted that Grey's Anatomy is my guilty pleasure and this is just one more way for me to enjoy my [imaginary] life with my [imaginary] friends at Seattle Grace.
*sigh* Yep, this magazine makes me happy. I ordered a subscription the minute I returned home from Borders, because perish the thought of not being able to find the next issue. As soon as I placed my order, I called my sister to give her the head's up because really, in my world, this is big news.
So that said... in other news: today I'm flying to Dallas for a Luxe Retreat. And then on Saturday, we will be at the Scrapbook Warehouse in Lewisville for the Vendor Fair. I am looking forward to hearing the consumer feedback about Luxe now that people have had a chance to use the product. This should be a good trip. And the really good news is that I'm also looking forward to a few nights of deep sleep on one of the Marriott beds that I am such a fan of. I have been suffering from insomnia for over a month and the last time I slept soundly was in Anaheim on a bed at the Sheraton. I'm wondering if maybe I need to figure out a new sleep set up here in my home. It is obvious that my mattress is not nearly as comfortable as those I sleep on in hotels.
And finally... the timing of this quick trip is good for a personal reason: some of my extended family members are heading to my mom's house for the weekend to celebrate her birthday. It's always difficult when I know they are together on the west coast and I'm so far away on the east coast. The trip to Dallas will take my mind off the fact that those I love the most are playing board games and walking on the beach without me. It's the birthdays and holidays and special events that make me homesick. Hopefully, I'll be able to skip that emotion this time around, since I'll be in my own little happy place doing something I enjoy almost as much as I enjoy spending time with my mom and siblings.
