I got it!!!

Just found an email from the Arthritis Foundation notifying me that I received the travel award I applied for to go to DC in April. Yeah!!!
I've got about half of what I need in clothing needs to include 2 pair of new shoes, a new purse, and some other things. Still need at least 2 new blouses, some socks, and a couple other unnamed items. Am seriously debating on having my hair cut again as it's long and straight and I honestly don't have the talent or ability to do something with it, though I'll probably just settle for some new clips to hold it up on the back of my head. I also need to see about getting some makeup, eyeshadow and lipstick mainly, as I haven't worn any in years.
I also need to get a larger rolling suitcase as I don't think the small one I have will hold everything.
I want to see if I can stay for a couple of extra days at their rate in the hotel if I reimburse them ahead of time for those nights if necessary.
Hope to be able to see some of the sights and take lots of pictures so I'll probably buy another memory card for my digital camera so I have enough room for all the pictures I want to take.
