Just barely . . .
I've been under somewhat of a gag order for a few months. So much to say and so much of Whynot hovering in the background saying Don't be blabbing all over the internet, you'll jinx us!
I applied for a scholarship to BlogHer13 and was awarded a full conference ticket in exchange for being a mic wrangler. I was searching for and secured some roomies! I was soooo excited about going and then, because of the poor timing of a series of events, I had to contact the BlogHer people and say thanks but no thanks.
And I was very sad . . .
BlogHer13 was in my home town, with all of these fabulous people attending and I couldn't go. Not even Gus and Jaq could fix this! My Notso Fairy Godmother had waved her wand and my pumpkin coach was not taking me to the ball.
Instead, I had to take a road trip.
First stop Springfield, MO to visit my mother, brother and sister in law. Then Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. Only there was no wind, just rain . . . through the entire state. On through Texas and New Mexico. 1,800 some miles later, I found myself in the Grand Canyon State, following tweets and FB status updates from BlogHer.
And I was still very sad . . .
So to cheer myself up, we bought this:
And I breathed a huge sigh of relief and was no longer very sad!
Pinch me! I still can't believe we're doing it!
