Vacation time..and I caught a cold! ARGH!

OK I have worked my ass off in new job for entire year, and I am proud to say I brought my Jewelry dept. from last place to 1st in the district in that time. I have an AWESOME team of sales people.

I decided I needed some R and R so took 5 days off, and here it is day 2 and I have been sick with some horrid cold since yesterday!
I am resting and drinking water because I am determined to go to the local Greek Festival tommorow!
Other things on my to do list..
1. Make some homemade bread .. a treat for me and my son, havent made any in over a year! (Found a yummy 7 grain recipe)
2. Go to library and get an armful of books... I like how to books, cooking books, and fiction.
3. Clean car inside and out
4. Have lunch with a friend I havent seen in a bit and get caught up.
5. Sew duvet cover for my down comforter. (easy, sew 2 sheets together with an opening left for snaps.)
6. Find a tea pot.. Im a coffee nut being born and raised in Seattle, but my 15 year old son has developed a taste for tea.
7. Attempt seduction of current interest and have mind boggling sex. (may lingerie shop for this)

So, I HAVE to shake this cold so I can do these things, therefore Im going back to bed with my shot of Nyquil...I hate being sick!

(get well soon and attend the Blogger's Convention!)

Hello...This post is to remind you about the Blogger's Convention scheduled October 21,22,23 and set for the ChicagoLand area(Bolingbrook--a suburb)

It is a chance for you to meet the folk that you have been reading, commenting, and chatting with. Before we go any further, this is NOT a giant sex orgy but a chance to interact with your new found blogging friends face-to-face.

The opening night festivities are still in the planning stage.(I need to have an actual head count on that before I can proceed and make commitments to the banquet facility. But in the plans are a Masked Ball--expected to be a lavish formal affair)

The 46 Zone Party will be held on the evening of the 22nd at the 46 Zone bar attached to the Ditka Dome(enclosed sports dome facility with an indoor driving range) Typically the bar has a live band on Saturday nights (no cover charge to date) The food and drink costs there are reasonable and one can imbibe for about twenty bucks.

There will be an "after" party on the 21st after the Masked Ball; and a "before" and "after" party on the 22nd in the hospitality suite at the hotel to continue on with the festivities. These parties will have food and alcohol/soft beverages and will be bought in bottle form with appetizer platters from local stores. The bar in the hospitality suite would be a serve yourself type of set-up.

The hotel is new and nicely furnished. Complimentary breakfasts are included with the room; the hotel has a pool, workout facility, complimentary wi-fi service, in-room coffee makers, mini refrigerators, iron & ironing board, and laptrays to support your laptops. There is a complimentary coffee bar located off the lobby area which is available 24 hours for a selection of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Hotel rates are reasonable and information can be found at Convention Information Pictures of the hotel and its rooms are also available for you to see.

In the works is a photo session opportunity as well as some classes/demos.

If you have not already done so, you are also invited to join bloggers of this friendly site The group was designed to address the technical aspects of blogging, but has metamorphosized into something much more--a "family" of bloggers...many of who will be attending the upcoming Convention.

Thank you for your time and I hope to meet you in person.
