Thoughts at the end of the week

My week was really busy towards the end.  I meant to post on Thursday, but Pookah took a 30 minute nap in the car and not another all day.  I was exhausted from keeping up with his cranky, whiny self so I crashed in the middle of Project Runway. And today, well, I had so much catching up to do with the rest of my life that I just didn’t have time.

I’m making the time now.  At 1030 pm on a Friday night.

So what’s going on? What’s on my mind?

Lots.

1. The influx of Blog Her tweets had me jealous just like last year when I vowed to go this year.

Yeah, didn’t happen.

But next year, I am vowing to go to SOME blog conference. SOMEWHERE.

It’s just an experience I want to have. I want to meet all of you! I want to learn, I want to network.  Hell, I just want to get out of Atlanta.

Sooooo, there is Blissdom, BlogHer, Blogalicious, TypeA, EVO, Blogging While Brown, Bloggy Bootcamp…….and the list goes on.

I think the key is finding what fits me, what I’m interested in and what I write about at My Life.

Because I’m going to a conference next year….yes sir I am.

2. Organization: You’ve heard it before, my house is…a work in progress.  I am reading this book called Total Mom Makeover.  She’s got interesting ideas.  I might just try a few.  And I have a few ideas of my own that I am going to start next month.  Stay tuned.

3. Which leads me to sending Pookah to daycare full time.  This month, I am sending him 3 days a week.  It helps, really it does.  But the problem is that I find myself rushing around on my one full free day.  And I STILL don’t get much done.  He’s got to go full time.  🙁  I hate it.  Because the look he gives me when I leave is dirty.  But he’s always so happy by the time I pick him up.  I feel like I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t.

4. Potty training is…….lets just say the child told me he had to pee, went to the potty, sat there a full 10 minutes, got off and promptly peed on the floor. SMH. #fail

5. Work: I’ve got to go to dayshift.  I’ve asked my manager. I’ve told C-Dub to work it out at work.  So I’m third on the list.  She said maybe next year.  #fail.

6. And last but not least, vacations.  I am planning vacations.  The major one with C-Dub and Pookah and maybe one with MY side of the family this time.  I was thinking a cruise…..

So that’s all for now folks.  Have a good weekend.  You know where I’ll be!!

    I had no idea there were so many blogging conferences, but I guess I’m not all that surprised.

    As for the work thing, I don’t know how anybody works a night shift and then transitions back to days. I’m pretty sure my body would rebel in some fantastic way.

    WOW! I want to go to a conference too. All of them sound so great. I need one on the east coast but I would love to go. Best of luck with everything especially the potty training and switching your schedule 🙂

    I’m following. Maybe follow back??
