My Mini HP & Cary, North Carolina

Wednesday morning my oldest son (Michael, age 13) and I fly out to Cary, North Carolina and will return home Sunday evening. This is the second round of tryouts for the USA Baseball National Team. I won't go into all the details just in case your not a baseball or sports fan. But this is huge and a honor that my son made the first tryout which was in California. If he makes this second round of tryouts, then we'll be off to Tampa Florida for the third and final round which will be held the second week in October. If Michael makes the third round then they will immediately fly to Ecuador, South America where they will play baseball for 10 days, playing against different teams. Not every baseball player can tryout for this team. You have to be the best of the best and be invited to attend.



With all of this traveling and being away from home for extended periods of time, my husband and I decided to get a Mini HP from Verizon. I have to stay connected don't ya know, hahaha, and keep up with my blog. The Mini HP is a mini laptop, just perfect for what I need it for.



I've wanted a laptop for such a long time and I'm so excited to finally have one!


Ohh, can't you see my fingers just typing away on these big nice keys! Yep, love everything about it!
I bought a nice carrying case for it with lots of pockets, this will be a carry on for the plane ride.


I hope to post on my blog while I'm there and share my trip with you. Not sure how much time I will have to travel around as this trip isn't about me, haha. I've never been to Cary, North Carolina, have you?


Ok, I just had to have some pretty picture on this post,:))


I found some antique shops while I was online looking for things to do in North Carolina and I do plan on stopping at them.


If any of you know of any fabulous places to see or things to do, please leave a comment on my post, I'm open to any suggestions.


Time to double check all the luggage (again) to make sure everything is packed.

I'll be posting real soon, Janice

I wish you luck, Michael, with the tryouts. And Janice, I hope you can make at least one stop 'for you':)

Hey Janice! I'm really late in getting around to blogging comments...sounds you are going to have a fantastic time with your son! Congratulations to Michael for being on a super good team...I'm sure he's a major contributor to their successs. I've never been to North Carolina, but they have got to have lots of antique stores there...you are going to have a wonderful excursion while there...hope Michael can keep up with you! Congratulations on your new laptop, too! I would love to have something like that to take into my bedroom when my grandgirl is here...she always monopolizes my computer! Can't wait to hear how the games went and to find out what treasures you have found so far. Take care, sweetie...enjoy yourself!

Have a good time with your son. I wish him success with his tryouts. Love the picture taken in the mirror. I am never happy with the ones I take in a mirror as I get so much flash back. Thanks for sharing.
