Two good and two bad pieces of news today.
First, DH leaves for two months on work, tomorrow. *insert very sad face* We both work at home, so we’re accustomed to spending every minute of the day together. God, I’m gonna miss him like crazy.
Second, we dropped off the Jeep at the hospital. I’m not sure if you’re aware of how much I love my Jeep, but ... it’s my baby. I can’t think of anything more fun than driving down the road with the top off, with the sun shining and the wind whipping my hair everywhere. I am definitely a Jeep kind of woman. It will probably be fixed soon, but I’m not sure if I can pick it up until DH gets home.
The first good news is that my "niece’s" baptism is Sunday!
The second good news is that I leave for the National RWA Conference on Tuesday! I can’t wait! I’ve booked my schedule with volunteering and such, but I think I might get to meet with one of my editors! She has such great ideas; I’m thrilled.
I’m not known for being too studious at conferences. I write every day, so I figure a conference is a bit of a vacation and an opportunity to hang out with other writers. (You should see how much writing I get done on writing retreats--Hah!) There are tons of great workshops, so we’ll see. At my piano conferences, my mind goes blank after a couple days. I’ve been known to skip most of the last day, LOL.
I’ll spring for internet a couple of the days and post all about it, but I won’t have time to visit y’all’s blogs. (Lame-oh, Natasha!) I’m sorry! I have the following week off, so one day I’m gonna sleep in and then blogsurf in my pajamas all day. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?
So what about you? When you go to a conference, do you mostly go for the editor/agent appointments, the workshops, or the camaraderie? Have you been to a National RWA conference? Any advice or wisdom to offer? Anything special you want me to check out and blog about, if you’re not going?
