Howdy! I’ve returned from Blissdom and every member of my household has a head cold. Luckily, we know how to treat a head cold, so we’re trudging through with plenty of Eucalyptus oil, Tylenol, and tissue. I’m tapping this out on Charlie’s iPad while. I lie on the sofa and blow my nose every five minutes.
I’ll recap in bullets because nobody needs to read an essay on what I did, wore, and saw over the course of two and a half days.
-Ellen of Love That Max spoke and made everyone cry. Sadly I missed it, but that’s because I was next door tying to figure out how to put the finishing touches on a project that I hope you guys will LOVE.
-Lovely ladies I met last year were there again–Allie from No Time for Flashcards and Kim from Mom Tried It. Both had their daughters with them and I got to practice holding a baby again, which I’ve pretty much forgotten how to do.
-I loved getting to stay up late chatting and laughing with my roommates: Elaine from Miss Elaine-ous Life and Erin from ErinMargolin.com.
-I left my laptop cord in the hotel, which is making me supremely twitchy, but they’re shipping it to me on Monday. Hopefully I can wait that long.
-At the airports I refused to go through the metal detector or the back scatter machines. I did this because I’m pregnant, and I consider these unknowns. I have done this many times with Charlie with no problems. This time, however, you would not believe how upset people got with me. As if I’m the only person to ever refuse. They would tell me it couldn’t be done, argue that it was perfectly safe, and then tell me threateningly that I would have to have a “full pat.” For the curious, the full pat really didn’t bother me. We all have different comfort levels, but for me, it was fine.
That’s it for now. I must take my stuffy head to bed and get some sleep.
