Long time no see, huh?

Well, I guess that 5 days isn't really that long. But for someone who used to post daily, I guess it could be. I have been at my convention since Wednesday. Although I do have internet service here, I've been far to busy to blog. So far the conference has been o.k. I've seen some decent sessions and I think my session went fine. The TFA meetings have been long and drawn out. Imagine a bunch of speech teachers that like to debate having discussions and voting on issues that are very divisive.
I also had homework to finish while here so on Thursday night I was up until 12:45 getting it done. It wasn't due until Friday, but I wanted to take no chances on something not working out. I did get it uploaded though I have concerns since I did it more at the last minute. I think it is o.k. but I probably would have spent more time on it if I had it. This is coming from the perfectionist that I am. I also had to get a survey out to the math teachers so I can write my paper that is due on Tuesday. Thankfully I was able to use surveymonkey to do it. I just sent the link to them and I have at least one response. That is all I had to have, but I hope a few more will respond.
I've had a lot of seafood here and I'm ready for something else. We went to Landry's last night which was good, but expensive. The atmosphere was nice though. I had a bloody mary and it was very good even though it was a little spicy. I am ready for just a regular burger and fries. I fly out at 3:45 today. I don't mind traveling, but I'm ready to be home.
Right now I'm enjoying my complimentary morning beverages. I joined the hotel's guest program at last year's convention so I could have the free internet access. It also allows me to have free hot and cold beverages delivered in the morning. I also get turn down service at night with a chocolate mint left on the bed. I feel so special.
Marty is on his way to Connecticut to visit his girls. I probably won't have as much contact with him but that just means he'll probably miss me which I think is a good thing. I know I'll miss him, but I have so much to do that I won't have time to dwell on it.
Well, I've got to get in the shower and get ready for the day.

When we were in Myrtle Beach this summer we ate lunch at Landry's. Very expensive, but oh so good! Have a safe trip home.
