Conference Report

Hey, that big conference to which I alluded, a few posts ago? I may have been remiss to focus on one, kind-of-negative thing one part of it stirred in me.

It was a great conference! See some of the pictures and reports here.

Am realizing how prone I am toward whinging (that's British English for whining - rhymes with binging - and doesn't the word sound like it is?). One big trigger, and that so often of my own making, is overwork. When I fill my life too full and then someone comes in and puts something else on top, I get frustrated.

I got almost no break over the holidays and I feel irritable about that. So I'm staying home today, both to get some rest and to get a bit better organized for 2009. If there's additional whinging needed, perhaps I should do more of it in my journal and not here!

I'm just catching up on your blog. I think I'm going to take a look at the book "Champagne for the Soul", looks like a good one. Thanks for the link to our blog story! :D

Hi Connie! No, not so anonymous. Yes, I thought your roundup was great so I linked to it.

You might be able to snag the book from Deb D. - she was carrying it around, too, which reminded me, yeah, I wanted to read that one...
