Well never mind about that...
I made it to all of about 4 hours of the CBC.
My boy came down with a fever, which morphed into tonsillitis, which found us at an urgent care at 8 pm Saturday night. He doesn't get sick often, but I'll give the kid some credit... when he does he sure likes to go all the way. Poor little Nublet spent the night in our bed with me, Daddy parked it on the couch. Sleeping with a mini furnace draped all over you and trying to mentally steel your bladder into not exploding while you hold it for hours in order to avoid moving to keep that sick baby asleep, is not my idea of a good night. But we have survived. It's now Sunday afternoon and he's starting to perk up a bit. As I type he's sitting next to me trying to eat some Play-Doh. What is it about that junk that screams "PUT ME IN YOUR MOUTH!"? I have no idea.
Anyway, because of all that I only made it to half a panel, didn't do much "networking", and pretty much have deduced that I suck at conferences. I also found myself drawing blanks when other people were handing me their cards and asking for mine and I had nothing. I just kept stumbling around saying "don't worry, you're not missing out, my blog isn't that great". Ah, self deprecation, helping the ill-prepared cope socially for centuries.
Whatever. I know the organizers worked extremely hard on getting that stuff together and to have almost 400 people show up for such an event is a huge accomplishment. Bully to you my friends. Well done. Well done.
I have some stuff brewing around in my head but it will have to wait for another day. After all, it's taken me most of this one to get these few paragraphs out.
Happy long holiday and Memorial Day to you friendies. Let's hope this means summer is finally going to show it's stupid face around these parts.
