Two Days Away

I’m finally coming out of my funk.  I try to keep the moaning and groaning to a minimum here on the ol’ blawg, but I’ve really been down in the dumps lately.  It’s the winter blahs — nothing more nothing less, and there is no point in complaining about it.  It always goes away.  Eventually.

Today I feel the tides turning.  I think it’s the Blissdom conference on the horizon, and please forgive me if you’re sick of hearing about it, but honestly it’s about the only thing keeping me going right now.  Winter seems never-ending, and after two snow days I am ready for a weekend OFF!

The excitement is building.  I read Robin’s post tonight, and I realized that I honestly have no anxiety about this weekend — only anticipation.  I had the privilege of meeting Robin and rooming with her last year at the She Speaks Conference in Charlotte, NC.  I can not WAIT to hug her neck again.  There is no anxiety.  I’m just excited.  I’ve done this before. I know what it’s like.  I know what it feels like to see that familiar (or not-so-familiar) face and feel like I’ve known them for years.

I’ll probably totally overwhelm everyone I meet with my excitement but I just don’t care.  Twitter is buzzing, and I’m making my rounds, trying to put faces with names and hopefully avoid the awkward moments of “Oh yeahhhhh… I’ve never heard of your blog I know your blog!” that Robin describes.  But in the end, it won’t matter.  It will be a whirlwind of “nice to meet yous” and “how do you dos” and “I CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE FINALLY MEETING FACE-TO-FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!es”.

Now if I would only start packing.

Meanwhile, American Idol awaits.  Tonight is the much-anticipated Group Night.  I know the drama is immature and probably exaggerated for production purposes, but I love Group Night.  I love to see how people react under pressure and how the groups work together.  So I’m off!

    At least it is lighter in the evenings now. I know that makes a difference for my family.

  3. I hear ya about the winter blahs. Here in Maine it has been so cold, it seems never ending. I have been going to the tanning salon about once a week-not necessarily to get tanned, but just to get warmed up! It does help. Enjoy your time away this weekend!! Love your blog, I read it every day!!

  4. It looks like you are going to have a grand time socializing! How fun! Can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back!

  6. Oh, the winter blues… know them well. So glad you are feeling better.

    I wish sooo soooo soooo much I was going to Blissdom. I can’t wait to hear all the reports.

    Have a great time!!

  7. January and February are truly the longest months of the year aren’t they? My husband and son have all sorts of activities planned to get them through the blahs yet in our area there is really not much for girls. So…I bought a family pass to the indoor pool at a local hotel. It was pretty inexpensive, gets us out of our winter coats and boots and is something active to get our bodies going. We all really enjoy it and – what do you know – January is already over and February is rolling right along! Have a great time at Blissdom. This is my first visit to your site so I am going to take my time and look around :o) !! Becki
