Guess what I just saw...

The ISS!! For real! It flew right over my house tonight at 6:43 p.m. Ben and Jessi were there to see it too. It was freaking awesome! I've never seen it before.

And so my two week long bout with space dorkiness begins with seeing the ISS.

Oh yeah, in case you weren't watching the news, the shuttle Discovery lifted off successfully yesterday at 10:38 a.m. It is being commanded by Pam Melroy, only the second woman astronaut to command a shuttle mission. At the same time, the ISS is being commanded by a woman, Peggy Whitson. This is historic people!

Yeah, I know, I'm a dork. But it's cute, right? Ok, maybe not.

I hope that dorkiness was connected to the right kidney and not both! 8:30 to 4:30 M-F is enough for me.

First ever space meeting of two female commanders...ROCK!

I think I saw the ISS on Saturday at my parents' house. Mom, Dad, and I saw it while we were laying out on their new trampoline all cuddled in blankets and watching the sky. Looked like a star, moved across the sky fairly quickly, but no streaking tail.
