Yesterday was busy setting up signs and passing out t-shirts. It wasn't the most intellectually taxing work, but I was happy to pitch in to prepare for the event. As an added bonus, I had logged 10,000 steps before lunch. As a reward, I enjoyed a guilt free slice of cake after dinner.
My friends started to trickle in throughout the afternoon. I was able to grab a quick hug (and a few selfies) while I was working. I'm hoping to break away from the t-shirt table to be able to visit today. (Of course if you are at Conference, feel free to visit me at the table. I'll most certainly be there!)
Coming to conference as a participant and not an employee is rising on my bucket list. I see all of my friends having fun while I'm tethered to a booth. Sometimes I feel like a kid watching Christmas morning through a window, close enough to witness all of the fun but unable to fully partake. Of course, having lots of visits today would help to stem my loneliness behind the piles of t-shirts!
