Headed Out

Some friends and I are going (all the way to the Colorado Springs Marriott!) for a Mom's conference this weekend.

I hope to a) learn a lot b) be encouraged and c) not feel condemned by all the things I am *clearly* doing wrong. (That list seems excessively long this week. Not good.) I made cookies this morning to make up for the afore mentioned bad parenting, then nearly lost my blessed marbles when the kids were screaming at each other over the (literally drops) of leftover coffee to have with my oatmeal, chocolate chip, craisin baked goodness. (No, letting my children drink coffee is not on the list. It is a good thing.)
Ahh, this is the life.

In other news, one of my 100 word entries about The Secret made it into the final round of the contest! Yay! I was only slightly deflated to know that of the 12 (out of 144 total entries) chosen to duke it out in the next level, 3 were hand picked, the other 9 randomly selected. What?! How dare they. {Wink}

I, of course, (like the other 11 contenders) opt to foolishly believe MINE was one of the carefully chosen according to taste. Random selection is just not flattering at all. The follow up entry (which will once and for all decide who will WIN!) had to be a mere 50 words about any subject matter. I only found that out this morning and had to whip it out quickly  in spite of my loud and lively brood's lack of cooperation because I'm taking off for the weekend in a couple of hours.

My brain feels mushy. Did that all make sense?

When it gets posted, I'll link to it so you can see. ☺

Why oh why can't you be my neighbour. I get mushy brain all the time! I've been away from the computer a lot lately and have missed your posts. I think I'm caught up now. You're so nice to make cookies and share coffee. Don't worry, it more than makes up for any parenting slip ups. Have a great conference, can't wait to read your notes.
