Well, It's official. I have been given the permission to attend the MacLive Conference in New York City in May. WOOO HOOOO. This is the same conference I attended last year in Tampa and it was wonderful. The people that actually write the books on different applications are the presenters and boy do they impart knowledge. You come away with your brain absolutely saturated with "stuff". This year they have strands about podcasting. Which I hope to attend. I will be attending with web/video person, Deb. Her and I attended together last year and had a good time. We will be staying at the New Yorker hotel, which will be close to the conference. It was very difficult to find a hotel because I am so unfamiliar with the area and everything seemed so expensive.

I wish they had some sort of class that would give you confidence and no fear - that's what I need most.

I don't know why I freak out so much when speaking in front of people. It's definately a negative.

I think if someone were to just give me a script and say "here teach this" specifically, I would be fine. I just have trouble organizing my thoughts into a box. I guess I should have never thrown the "proverbial" (sp?) box away.

Maybe I'll come back pumped up enough the fear will be overtaken with excitement. Yeah, right. Fear always wins. Darn fear.

Anyway - should be an interesting few weeks. Conference in New York, next week graduation, two weeks off then the big Kan-ed conference in Wichita. Then I will probably sleep. A few weeks of catching up and then getting Aaron off to college. Where has the time gone. Seems like just yesterday he was a little baby and throwing a fit. Oh wait- that was yesterday. ....

Molly and her "bouncers"

Well, I have complaints from extended family that I have too few pictures of my boys on this site. It seems like we take a lot pictures, I guess they just aren't in them. I will try to do better.

I was hoping they would dress up and at least shower before we went to take Molly's pictures last weekend. And since they had no interest in taking pictures of them, they weren't in very many. But here are a few.

Trying to look all tough.

Her loyal drivers.

Her bodyguards.

Prom dress shopping

Murphy liked Molly, she just didn't want to share the couch with her.

Had a great time with Kelly and Molly. Got to experience Parrot-fa-anlia. It's a store that sells special event dresses. If you've been there, you know what I'm talking about, if not, there is just not a way to explain it in words.....

I absolutely love the dress. She looked very stunning.

The weather was really crummy but we down to the storage building and took pictures of Molly with the car.

I had fun taking the pictures and turning everything but her dress and eyes, to black and white.

She makes it easy to have a good picture, very photogenic.

Here IT IS!!!!

Here is a picture of my new car!! It is a Pontiac Solstice. Greg went to Independence, MO yesterday to pick it up. We sold the Corvette. It isn't exceptionally fast but a very sweet ride.

And here is my wonderful husband. He bought me the car because he loves me. (Or at least that's the excuse he's using). Oh well, who am I to argue??? : )

Go here for another view:

Kelly and Molly are coming to visit this weekend. Should be fun. Crummy weather expected though.
More later.
