My life doesn't suck :-). I am back in Detroit today. I had what was supposed to be a quick trip to the Bitter End to do a speech for the Young President's Organization (YPO). I had a nice wake up call and left home at 4:15am to arrive at the Bitter End for a beautiful sunset and dinner with the YPO group.
The refurbished rooms are excellent.
Thursday morning was the speech which I think went pretty well and then I was drafted to blow the starting horn for the YPO fleet's race to their next island. It was a good thing I played tuba in high school because the same breath control and embouchure (shape of mouth) are required to blow a conch shell horn. If I get the photo I'll post it :-)
That night I was on Lambert's beach on the windward side of Tortola so I could catch another early flight back to Michigan.
All went well until I got to DC... and the flight was canceled! The fact that my cousin Molly lives in Alexandria made it all OK as I convinced the airlines to pay for the taxis instead of a hotel and we hit Old Town's night life. Good thing I am used to living out of a duffel bag!
Off to LA tomorrow for the Billie's. You can see more about it at http://www.womenssportsfoundation.org and if anyone wants to buy a last minute ticket just let me know!
