Preparations ...

It has been a very busy time, and in reading other blogs this morning, those going to the Conference in the days to come are just as busy.  How is it we have a year to plan and it's never enough time, nor does it get here quick enough?  {grins}

My children have been an awesome workforce ... from cleaning out my van (I usually haul around crochet supplies as one never knows ... ), to assembling various class supplies.  They are also fully packed and ready to go; if I'm not mistaken, they have had the map out, tracing the route too.  It's just us adults, as they pointed out earlier this morning over breakfast, that haven't gotten our acts together.  If they keep the teasing up they'll be riding the four plus hours to New Hampshire strapped to the top of the van.  Wait, I'm rethinking that.  They read this over my shoulder and are now dancing around the kitchen, high-fiving each other while shouting out "Cool!"  Maybe I should check with Nancy to see if she really IS going to bring snowballs ...

We will be bringing the laptop and I plan on blogging -- hopefully everyday -- about the event.  If you are unable to attend and would like for me to report back on something specific, please feel free to ask and I'll do my best.  I do know that there will be a special LIVE broadcast of GETTING LOOPY from the Vendor's Floor, on Thursday, July 24th starting at 7:30 PM (ET), so do consider tuning in.  And then, at another time yet to be set, I have volunteered to lend my untrained (ahem, out of tune/tone deaf) voice for some singing?  (Cover your ears now!  yeah, that should be a treat.  LOL)

OK, my coffee mug is empty and that means my break is over.  Time to get back to work, or as the kids are chanting, it's time to do more packing ...

Hey Dee - are you bringing a tree again this year?!?!? LOL  And are you revealing which "fruit flavor" we will be partaking of before or after the Conference?  Can't wait to see the "Dee gang"!  My partner-in-crime and I will arrive on Thursday night but probably too late to see anyone.  We will catch-up with you on Friday am probably at b'fast before classes.  See you then!
