I didn't get home from band practice until after 10:30 last night, so I've been frantically doing loads of laundry ever since. Frankly, I'd have benefited more from extra sleep instead, but I can't seem to get more than about six or seven hours a night. I may very well end up checking into the hotel tomorrow and taking a nap for a couple of hours!
It doesn't really matter what I take to wear, so I'm not worried too much about that. My husband is getting my camera a new Flash card (I'll have to ask him to buy batteries, too) and I'm going to skip trying to print quickie business cards for myself in favor of letting Wendy Kline make me some when I get there.
I was hoping to have two of my band's songs on CD (or iPod) to bring with me. I'll have to see if the guys made any progress last night on the guitar sound. I wanted to re-do my vocals on the second one, but I don't think I'll have time.
This morning I need to go by my credit union, deposit a check and get money for the hotel and miscellaneous meals. I found a dollar in the dryer, so I'm already ahead.
That just leaves packing, which I'll probably start tonight and finish in the morning. My main imperative is to take my expensive lip glosses out of my purse and put them into my suitcase so the TSA doesn't take them away. Beyond that, I'm just going to pick out my favorite t-shirts and coordinating Converse and throw them into my duffel bag.
The real kicker is that I'll be back in town exactly one day before I leave again. Next week I'm going to L.A. on a sponsored blogger-relations trip. I'll tell you more about that later.
Like last year, I've decided not to bring my laptop with me to BlogHer. I know! It sounds crazy not to directly blog a blogging conference. However, for me it's more about meeting people and learning things. I can always make notes and blog when I get home - and I will.
Thus, this is probably my last post of the week. I'll start my BlogHer recap on Sunday evening. Until then...enjoy your week!
