The Focused Conference in Virginia last weekend was wonderful! We laughed, we learned, we ate…..pretty much in that order. I got to meet so many amazing women….it never ceases to amaze me how many brilliant people are out there.
Right now I’m sitting in the airport trying to figure out a way to sum up the past few days.
I would normally do that on Monday morning, all casual and lounging in my recliner with my kids around me chatting me up. But that won’t be possible since I have to pile my boys in my car tomorrow morning by 8:00 and drive them to their orthodontist appointments in the city.
I really love our ortho, but I do occasionally wonder about the wisdom of choosing one so far away. Most of the time it’s no big deal, but after flying home from Virginia the day before and getting back after dark….I really don’t much feel like waking up early and leaving home.
But I really DO want to spend some quality time with my boys who I am missing like crazy right now, so I need to look at it as a gift instead of a burden. I can sleep another time. Not sure when, but I am confident it will happen someday.
And as a double treat my boys get to go with me after the orthodontist while I get my haircut. I get it cut at ULTA where there are plenty of makeup and hair products for them to peruse while I am in the chair. I had to promise them In & Out burgers PLUS a trip to the Lego store to make up for the torture.
Tuesday and Wednesday are turning out to be really full days also. So I will need to pick up some under eye repair cream while I’m at ULTA tomorrow or I will start to look like a mom-zombie.
Speaking of busy, I will only be home for a few days before heading back to Dallas (by car this time since several of my kids are going with me) for the Young Living International Grand Convention. It’s no big deal….just 12,000 of my closest friends hanging out together. The word “madness” comes to mind. I plan to pack a LOT of food to take with us, not to save money but because I expect the lunch lines at even the fastest food places to be so long you will be ready for dinner by the time you get to eat.
It’s a good thing I like raw fruits and veggies.
If you have tips for packing up food for traveling over a week hop over to my Facebook page and share them with all of us!
Have a great week!
