One of my most favorite things in the whole wide world started my day, bright and early Tuesday morning, and that is my annual mammogram. Those of you who have endured the pleasure of a mammogram understand what I mean, but that said, I know it’s very important to have it done. I’m also very grateful to have health insurance to enable me to do that, even though the process itself is not a pleasant one.

Afterwards, it was time to head back to the law school for a 10:00 a.m. courtyard meeting with the artist, Jesús Moroles, who was in town. Many of the folks who had worked to bring the courtyard to life attended the meeting as well, including Steve Marshall, Thad Kelly, Mark Dilday, Jason Huckleberry, Lynn Stewart, Dan Street and Dennis Wewers. The reason for the meeting was to discuss outstanding concerns about the landscaping, last minute adjustments to the lighting of the courtyard, scheduling the refinishing of the concrete, future shipments of granite, and furniture to complete the granite tables. I am gratefule that everyone was able to be there to attend that meeting so we could finish up those last remaining details. After the meeting, Jesús and I went to lunch at Mama Dean’s. That was a lot of fun. It was the first time I got to spend quiet time with him and we had a delightful visit over great soul food.

At 3:30 p.m. I met with Teri Stafford for our weekly development meeting, and I have to tell you folks, that Monday and Tuesday were very distracted days for me because the next day I was to depart for the Fabulous at 50 cruise–and boy was that in the forefront of my mind. I spent Tuesday evening taking care of last minute details, packing, looking through the itinerary again, and double checking for my passport. I wanted to be certain that everything was all set for my departure for the Fabulous at 50 cruise on Wednesday morning.
