So I’m going to Blissdom this weekend. I’m looking forward to it, not in a crazy SUPER PUMPED kind of way, but in a general-good-feeling kind of way. I’ve been feeling lately like I’ve lost my blogging mojo – not that I don’t want to blog, just that the words haven’t been flowing. My writing feels like an unfolding lawn chair.
So I hope the conference will just generally give me good vibes and unlock the creative juices. Also, I hope it’s worth the many days of parenting payback awaiting me. Not only will Sir Monkeypants be on his own for two bedtimes, bath day, and several meals, but he also has several sports events to work around AND two birthday parties to squeeze in there. Although I have come to terms with the fact that I am not completely indispensable around here, it’s a tough weekend to be single-parenting and I’m grateful.
In any case, I just wanted to mention here that I’ll be there, so if you’ll be there, please come and say hello. I am terribly, terribly wallflower shy in crowds, I am likely to be skulking around the edges of the event wearing an awkward-creepy smile and holding out my business card wordlessly, like the Hot-And-Ready girl who stands outside Tiny Tim’s pizza trying desperately to get passers-by to take a flyer already so she can finish her stack and go home and lie down, dammit.
(I feel for the Hot-And-Ready girl.)
See you there!

Just for you, I came out of the blogging closet and put up a photo on my blog. Just add some bags under the eyes and a general look of weariness and you have a current version of me. I will see you there. Make sure you go to the Courthouse Friday if you can. It’s a lovely club and I imagine the party will be fun. I can pry you off the wall if you want.
Yay! I shall join you with the eye bags, especially if we are out late on the Friday. I’m used to my 9:30 bedtime :). I’ll be at the Courthouse, though – see you there!
I must admit to smiling with the vision of you skulking around the edges of the crowd, hand extended, wordless. You have so many beautiful words in your head – don’t keep them in just because they have to come out your mouth instead of your fingers. I won’t be there, but if I was, I’d be looking for you.
