After sharing my 7 lessons learned from traveling, I discovered another one I need to learn before my next conference: how to protect myself against wicked air-conditioning?
The Los Angeles Convention Centre could have saved a bundle on its hydro bill by turning down the air-conditioning. By the second day of BlogWorld Expo, many people were coughing and sniffing. My scratchy throat told me what was coming next.
Rather than Darrell and I spending our only “vacation” day this year exploring Hollywood, I spent the day in bed. Disappointed? Yes, definitely. Regret? No, I don’t think so. I was in no shape to go out. BlogWorld will be in LA for at least two years. We will try again next year; perhaps go down a day early and do Hollywood before the conference.
While I finish recovering from this nasty cold and subsequent allergic reaction to Vicks VapoRub (the first such reaction in my thirty-fifteen years), I like to share three of my favourite blogs, which you might also enjoy reading:
- Caleigh’s Corner: After much agonizing thought about what is best for their precious daughter at this time, Caleigh’s parents have opted for homeschooling. She marble painted pumpkins for Halloween. How fun!
- Fighting Monsters with Rubber Swords: After a few less-than-encouraging years, Schuyler finally has teachers who believe in her! What a concept, eh? Read her father Robert’s Season of Gratitude. For the complete story, grab a copy of Schuyler’s Monster: A Father’s Journey with His Wordless Daughter
- A Deaf Shares Her World: My friend Karen lost her hearing while barefoot waterskiing as a teen. Guess what she is doing now…and she is rocking it!
