Heading for the Conference

I've been so bad about blogging this week. And I'll probably be bad for the next few days. I really thought about taking my laptop with me to Dallas so I could blog while I'm there. I may regret not taking the laptop, because I have a feeling there will be lots I'll want to share. Plus I may need moral support. But last year I took my laptop with me, and I ended up arriving at the hotel about four hours before they had my room ready to check in. So I had a heavy tote bag and my computer, which I swear was made of solid iron, to lug around with me all that time. I'm just not sure I can risk that again. So either I'll have to find a computer to use somewhere, or save it all up for next week.

Speaking of the conference, did you notice the picture at the top of this post? I started out with a cute little idea. Find a pretty crown pin and wear it, to identify myself as queen. I did find a nice, subtle little crown necklace, but I also came across this rhinestone pin that says "Queen." While I was looking at the picture of it in the online store, it seemed like a great idea. I'll wear this cute pin that says "Queen." People will ask me why I'm wearing it. I can then tell them about my blog. I can whip out a "Queen of Perseverance" bookmark and give to them.

There are a couple of problems with this plan. First, when the pin arrived, it turned out to be the biggest, gaudiest thing you ever saw. Second, this plan goes against my nature, which is to try to blend into the wallpaper and be noticed as little as possible. So whether I'll have the courage to do this or not is anyone's guess. I'm taking it along just in case.

I'll let you know. In the meantime, to make up for my slackness of the past few days, I did post twice today. Be sure to read the other one. The cats are more entertaining than I am!
