Blogher 2009 anyone?

So, I have been sitting here contemplating my navel, thinking about all the places that I have never been, all the places that BigD has gone with "the guys" and thinking that maybe I need to go somewhere. Usually I am very content when he goes on his guy weekend or work seminars etc. Actually I relish the time alone...no cooking, no cleaning...hell I can turn into trailer trash if I want. But...I have been thinking that I would like to see Chicago. I have heard it is great and there is a rumor going around that there are going to be some fun ladies there this July. Any of you fun ladies going? I am seriously considering it. I think it would be good for BigD to spend a couple days at home taking care of things, and S1 and S2 would probably be here too...maybe a few days without old mom would do them some good. So, convince me that I should go.

You should definitely go! I won't be going but there are tons of hilarious and cool Bloghers going. It would be so fun! Great excuse to spend some time just for you.

Plus, I need you to go so you an report back and I can enjoy vicariously.

What?? Leave 3 helpless men alone for several days to fend for themselves? Are you mad?

These poor guys could starve. They could end up sleeping in soiled sheets, using dirty bathrooms, and dealing with accummulated dust that has gathered on horizontal surfaces.

Don't do it. Stay at home where a wife and mother belongs. Kick off your shoes. But, you don't have get be pregnant. (BTW, here in California, we prefer to have our babies 8 at a time.)

Cater to the wishes of the men in the house. If you rock this boat, who knows what might happen?! The next thing you know, we'll have women running for president, launched into space, and playing professional sports.

I think you really need to go off and see the world! Chicago is a fun city, and I saw it with my parents... I couldn't imagine the fun if it was me and a bunch of like minded ladies!! LOL
Go! Have Fun! I think you deserve it.

OK, take it from me- You. Must. Go.

The year you've had.
And, it's true. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
As for Chigago, never been. But, EVERYONE loves it!
Go.

Chicago is AWESOME! I would love to go again... who all is going? I went for a business trip several years ago and didn't get to spend near enough time there. My best friend just got back from there over New Year's and her and her hubby had a wonderful time! I say GOOOOOO!!

Hugs - Tiff

My moments of sureity in going are gone. I went from being 99% sure I'm going to 99% sure I'm not.

Not having a job sucks.

I would definitely recommend you go, though.

Go! If I lived anywhere remotely near, I would too. Chicago is a cool and interesting city. Try to see Oprah if she is not on break and a baseball game!! I have flown in and out of Chicago for years but only stayed there once and loved it.
