Spring Phever, and I’m Phreaking Out!

Only three days to go until the hubby and I are headed to sunny Florida! I’ve been looking forward to this for the past, oh, two months or so, and now…


OMG, only three days to go!… and I have once again procrastinated for the past month, telling myself I had plenty of time to get things organized and ready for my trip. And once again, the trip has snuck up on me, leaving me feeling totally stressed at the realization of everything I still need to do before Thursday morning.

When will I ever learn?

Thankfully, those of you reading this don’t have to deal with me in person the next few days, because I’m liable to be cranky and unpleasant. But once we’ve checked into our room, and I have my first refreshing adult beverage in hand, all worries will be forgotten (or at least pushed into the dark recesses of my mind for a few days).

Tickets are in hand for three Phillies games at Bright House Field – Phils vs Twins (3/13), Phils vs Tigers (3/16), and Phils vs Yankees (3/17). We also have tickets to see the Phillies play the Pirates in Bradenton on 3/15.

I’m really looking forward to the chance to use my new “toy”, which I just got last week:


The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L lens with Image Stabilization. I had a chance to try this amazing lens last year at a photo workshop held at a Lehigh Valley IronPigs game. Let me tell you, the difference between photos taken with my old lens and with this one was obvious – even my husband, who has no camera sense, could tell the difference.

I’m also looking forward to the chance to meet Jane Heller of Confessions of a She-Fan fame. Jane will also be at the 3/17 Phillies vs Yankees game. She’ll probably have her She-Fan Cam with her, so I hope I’m having a good hair day that day!

    I am SO wishing I was going with you! And that lens is awesome :O) Wish I could get one for my Olympus, but so far, they are not making it for my camera. The Pigs/Dan’s are doing the workshop again this year but I don’t know the dates yet…will let ya know. Really had fun last year; hoping to go again :O)

    Exciting. What a big lens. I still can’t get into the complexities of any other than a simple point and shoot with a good zoom. My back already is breaking carrying all those balls, my glove, my food, my water, my giveaways!! Luckily I have a good season seat without obstruction.
    I can’t wait to see your pictures and report.
    Lucky you, to get to see Jane. She is fantastic and gorgeous.

    I know what you mean about procrastinating! I do the same. But the times that we drive I am the one with the snacks for everyone, coffee, water, etc. We came back last Monday from our trip and we had an awesome time even with one rainout. I know you will have a grrrreat time! And meeting Jane, just more icing on the cake! Have a good margarita for me!

    I hope you’re having fun! You can definitely scalp extra tickets! I would have loved the chance to meet you, but too bad all the stadiums in FL are so damn spread out! Look at that lens! Can’t wait for pics!
