It's here! It's time! I'm excited!
Can you tell?
I was determined to get to this conference, though I originally decided I could commute back and forth each evening. After all, I make that same commute for work every day. But there's so much fun at night! And I was starting to feel like I'd be missing out on too many late night giggle sessions. Then, I went to the ShesConnected conference last week. And I was chatting with the wonderful @PracticalMum, whom I was meeting in person for the first time. And she was delightful and smart and fun. And I guess she thought I was ok too (or at least not too psycho-killer looking) cuz she asked if I'd like to be her Blissdom roomie. Woohoo! I cleared it with hubs, and now I will be staying downtown for two nights during the conference. With a cool roomie. I think there might be wine ...
So, I'm stoked. And I'm also a little missing my Little Boo already. He is not impressed with my not coming home tonite. He actually told me I wasn't allowed :-) I know he'll be fine and he and daddy will have lots of fun. But I will miss my baby kisses. He is very concerned that I need to be back for Hallowe'en, so we've been reassuring him I would never miss that.
But, I will be missing the celebrations at school. So, I've spoken to Little Boo's daycare, gotten the info on Friday's Hallowe'en activities. Told them I'm sending in treats for the class (in case hubs forgets to point them out). This morning I'll be packing his costume and the treats, plus stickers for his JK friends, into a bag, labelling it and placing it by the front door. Daycare has offered to dress him in his costume in case it's too much for hubs, (ha! even they know him well). I even paid the monthly daycare bill in advance.
So, now I'm off to pack and primp and prepare myself for a much-needed and well-deserved couple of days of BLISS. Sessions and connections and parties and a spa evening. Yum!
Too bad the hotel workers are on strike. But I won't let that get me down
Come say hi if you're there! I'd love to meet you IRL ;-)
