*So, BlogHer. This post is kind of all over there, but I'm still decompressing. In brief, I will say that it was ridiculously fun; my roommates Becky and Keely, and other bloggy friends Gretchen, Casey, Mrs. Bear, and Stimey were even funnier and nicer and smarter in person and I miss them all terribly; I missed my family less than I thought; I got lost of swag (I'm enjoying my second cup of coffee from my new Sprout mug); my children and home survived; I'm still tired; I have tons of photos that look exactly like these (all respectfully borrowed from Keely, since mine would not upload (but really, mine are EXACTLY the same):
Drink in hand (with Gretchen)!
*Highlights were MoMA, walking around NYC, Stimey's autism panel, dinner with everyone at the bull-riding bar, and those ladies you see in those photos up there. Low points were horrific blisters I got from wearing ridiculous shoes the first night, becoming a whore for tuna, and arriving for breakfast unshowered with bed-head on Day 2.
*My kids really missed me. Which is nice, except for the part where they've been trying to climb inside of me and physically hanging off of my pants for the past two days. Though, I did talk to a teary Oscar Sunday morning, and he sobbed, "I love you so, so much! I miss you!" and it nearly killed me dead.
*My roommates Keely and Becky were exactly as I imagined them to be, and we got along really well and made good roommates. The room was a little tight, but we made it work, and it was fun.
*I'm not quite sure what else to add, but if you have any questions, let me know. And, I met some other awesome bloggers that I plan to add to my reader expound upon at some point this week.
*That's all. Did I mention I'm still tired? I'm still tired.
