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!
