Instead of Solo Parenting, I'll Be . . . Solo

So tomorrow morning I leave for Denver and SnowCon!

I've been preoccupied with preparing and packing (and conquering bouts of nervousness/terror about being a speaker). So preoccupied, in fact, that I actually folded laundry this afternoon, with Miss Morgan's assistance.

I am SO excited to be a part of SnowCon, and so happy that other Objectivist clubs are hosting minicons, and eager to join Kelly again to talk about parenting and Positive Discipline. And I can't even describe how awesome it will be to finally meet so many cool people in person!

This will be the first time I've gone off on a trip all alone somewhere since . . . ever. Hmmm . . . the last time I went on a trip without Brendan (pre-kids) was to see my aunt in Ohio. It was August 2001 and I got to announce that I was pregnant to my whole family! Brendan and I have managed to sneak away here and there since then, but this is . . . wow. It's been a long time since I went away ALL BY MYSELF.

Probably by the time I become accustomed to not having to listen for children and walking around in the world without a diaper tucked in my purse, it'll be time to come back home.

I'll miss everyone, and I know they'll miss me, but I plan to really enjoy myself thoroughly.

It's possible, though very unlikely, I'll get a chance to post while I'm gone, but I plan to visit Twitter and Facebook pretty often, so if you miss me on the blog, look for me in those places.

Now I'm going to go hang with the fam a bit tonight. Apparently, they're all taking me to the airport very, very early tomorrow! How nice is that? I have the best family in the whole world. :)
