Plans for Computers in Libraries

Things I plan to do at Computers In Libraries 2009 that have nothing to do with computers or libraries:

  1. Take a shower with neither a toddler nor a baby monitor in the bathroom with me.
  2. Eat breakfast sitting down.
  3. Sleep past 6:30 am.
  4. Eat a meal at a restaurant with cloth napkins and tablecloths.
  5. Think about James pretty much every minute of every day I’m there.

Any parents reading this will have figured out that this is my first overnight (three nights, actually!) trip away from James since he was born. Wish me luck! (No need to wish him luck, I’m sure he’ll be fine. His dad could maybe use some good wishes, though.)

    Good for you for getting out! I’ll be at CiL, too, which marks only the 2nd time I’ve been to an overnight conference since my first son was born 6 years ago. I haven’t yet broken the news to my two sons that I’ll be away, as they won’t be too thrilled.

    I’m still completely bummed that you’re going to CiL and I’m going to miss it! You’ll have a blast…introduce yourself to everyone and tell them your my stand-in for this year. 🙂
