I'm going to a psychiatric conference. Which means I will leave from work tomorrow and drive 3 hours to a very BIGBIGcity. Driving without kids in the backseat. Which is weird. I'm driving all by myself with maps. I have a hotel booked and everything. Booked it all by myself even.
I've never been to a conference before. But, to keep up my license up, I need continuing education hours. This will be 18 hours all told. Plus my work reimburses me for the conference and hotel/travel. I should have padded the travel expenses more.
This is so boring to talk about. I apologize. I mean, the conference itself should be interesting. But, it's all technical stuff. Neurotransmitters and whatnot. Doesn't translate well into blog form. Plus, I'm not paying for internet access so I am off the grid for three days. And I don't have internet on my phone cause I'm cheep.
CHEEP I SAY!
So you don't get to hear about it anyway.
ME NO LIKEY NO PUTER AND NO BLOGGY BLOG!!! ME NO LIKEY NO FACEBOOK!!
Plus, the thing is, is that, it just feels so odd. I mean, I will be without husband and children for three days. I've never really been without everyone. I already feel lonely about it. I mean, I'll be a solo member of the Tribe called Hall. Gallivanting about. It's so weird to think about.
ME NO LIKEY BEING SOLO TRIBE MEMBER!!
Who I am suppose to put on time outs? Whose socks am I suppose to hunt for? Who I am suppose to spoon at night? I mean, I'll call Mr. Hall through out the day but, gah.
Crap. Am I really this needy? Have I no identity outside of Mrs. Hall-- wife, mother nurse and friend?
I will be extremely busy though. Attending presentation after presentation. Learning things. Being all professional and such. I won't be going out after the long days though. I will be sticking to the the hotel. No need for met to venture out after the days are done. Lone single female in a big city after all. Safety first.
I'll get room service.
Stare at the cable television.
Maybe I'll bring booze to the hotel room. Is it bad to drink alone?
It's all so weird.
OK, that's all I got.
Wish me luck as I do something I've never done before.
