Post Jamboree Recovery

I am in that between time. Betwixt and Between as my mother used to say. It's kind of an emotional combination of let down and rev up. I am recovering from one conference (Jamboree) and getting ready for the next one. (FGS)

While it is good to be home and sleep in my own bed. I miss the excitement that always surrounds conferences. The brain overload from endless classes and the fellowship of those who share our addiction.
I've barely unpacked, the laundry caught up and the suitcases put away but I can't hardly wait for it to start all over.

On the other hand. I'm bushed. I have tons of learning I want to put into practice and I need to catch up on household chores. Not to mention my research and the research for my clients that needs to get done. I have e-mails to catch up on, blogs to read, books to cruise, microfilms to order and view, lectures to produce and articles to write. Whew! Oh and I have to get all of it done before I leave again in September.

Not to mention my "other" life. I have friends, family and animals that all need to hear from me at least a little bit.

Now September may seem like it's a long way off, but my calender is so packed with "to do" items that I'm not sure my husband and I will find the same three days off to take a little vacation.
