I’m Having a Blast
I’m Having a Blast

It’s been a few days since I posted. The trip down to Austin, by car, was great for my wanderlust. I made good time with only a two hour nap along the way.

My first few days were spent at a place in Bee Cave, where my co-author for a series of non-fiction books lives. I stated at a hotel right near her and we had several good days of brainstorming.

The actual first conference begins tomorrow. I’m now ensconced in my room at the Hyatt and it’s beautiful. I’m on the top floor, just down from the conference room where the second conference will be held. It’s both comfortable and convenient.

I’m ready to get inspired and to kick butt. :-)

One Last Load of Laundry
One Last Load of Laundry

The departure day is almost here. I’ve been doing laundry and getting ready. I can’t believe how quickly this week has passed and how, despite doing many of the things I wanted to get done early, I still feel rushed.

It’s okay, though, I know that I’m just a few things on my list of pre-trip accomplishments from being done.

I best get back to it. The dryer is telling me the clothes are done.

Last Tennis for a While
Last Tennis for a While

Tonight’s tennis during double league was awesome. I played on court three with three other guys who were all really good players. The first set I got to play with Rich. He is the best player of the four of us and has an amazing serve.

We won that set 6-2 which was very satisfying. The next set I played with a gentleman whose name escapes me but we got beat 6-1. They were on fire. Scott was my partner for the third set.  We were easily the two weakest players of the four, we won the first game.

They won the second game but it was close. The next game, I was serving and we won, so now we’re up 2 to 1. They then went on a run and got up 5-2. We got one more game before they won the set. Still, it was a good night I scored 10 points and tied for second

It’ll be several weeks before I get to play tennis league again. I’m leaving for Austin, as you know, on Friday. I can’t wait. It’s going to be a blast.

Checking Off Tasks
Checking Off Tasks

A few more things checked off my pre-adventure list today. I got the oil changed and a new wiper blade put on the car. Check.

I also worked in a haircut. I look adorable.

There was a workout and I got almost all the expenses figured out for my taxes.

What’s unusual about this week is that my normal modus operandi would be to wait until Thursday and try to get everything done. Then I’d be stressed. I’m kicking list but early and it’s making a huge difference.

Yay me!

Bunnies Make Me Happy

Bunnies Make Me Happy

I really struggled to get yesterday’s post up. I wrote it, then thought I’d hit publish but didn’t. The next day I got a message from Dad that it wasn’t up.

I went back and I had somehow deleted it, so I wrote another one. Then I didn’t hit publish again. I just noticed that when I went in for tonight’s post. Ugh…my mind is elsewhere.

I’m so excited about my forthcoming trip to Austin for back to back conferences that I can barely stand it. Today, I did a bunch of things to get ready including buying some cool technology for the drive down. It’s a thousand miles and I love a good road trip.

I’ve been working to get good at Dragon Dictate and am making progress. My buddy Honorée uses it and she also uses an app called Dragon Anywhere. I asked her about dictating while driving and if the noise was too much and she said it wasn’t because she uses a Bluetooth ear piece that does a good job of just getting one’s voice.

Once I heard that I had to have one.

I bought the ear piece, a little holder for my phone that attaches to the air vent, a new charger, and a cool Bluetooth speaker that clips onto my sun visor. This is going to be a great roadtrip.
