(Wow, my laptop's webcam is awful! I was actually wearing a purple shirt, and the colors are all wonky...and please ignore the pepper in my tooth)Add to this the fact that my cat is going nuts, running around acting weird and carrying food in his mouth and depositing it elsewhere. I worry about him, especially because he won't get much (positive) attention when I'm gone. I'll be happy if Mr. Geek just scoops the litter box once or twice.
I can't say enough how excited, grateful, and desperate I am for this trip. It's been a busy and sometimes frustrating summer, and I'm just ready to spend some time reconnecting with myself and doing things without that little alarm in the back of my mind that is constantly on, thinking about my son and what he might be into. I'm also quite thankful to the many friends who have opened their homes to my husband and son over the next few days for dinner and playtime. It will be a weight off of our shoulders, knowing Soren will be entertained a bit (as well as fed!--just kidding Chris, you make great pancakes and rice).
I'm looking forward to meeting many of the wonderful women I've met online at the conference, Naomi my roomie, of course, but also Kari, Sky, Liz, Lisa, Nicole, Kayla, Lisa, and so many more whom I'm forgetting to name. Leave me a comment if you'll be at the conference too! I'd love to try and meet up with you.
The kiddo's up, so I'm off to do my last nap-waking for a few days--and some extra snuggle time. I'll try and post a bit from New York and share some photos too. Bye for now!
