Conference Junk

I love going to conferences for work since it gets me out town and out of the office. The one thing I really hate about it is having to get everything ready for it. Whether I am organizing the conference or being an exhibitor, there is always so much work to be done. For example, all the really, really annoying printing. Since I have a color printer that is my own personal printer, I get to print out all the colored items on that. Joy. It usually works fine until Murphy's Law kicks in. Inevitably some thing that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Take today for instance. I am printing out all our brochures for in house training to take with me this weekend to San Francisco. The first side goes smoothly. Do you think the second side would too? Oh no. Of course not. The pages stick together, thus having to feed them in one at a time. All 150 brochures, one at a time. Kill me now!!!

I still have to design and print out the info capture cards. Yay. I can hardly contain the joy. At least that is only one sided printing. Thank GOD! Wish me luck, I have 125 brochures left to be printed. *Sighs*

The New Year

Well, it's 2009. Wow. Where did the time go. 10 years ago I was in high school. Man, I can't believe that. As 2008 drew to a close, I always get a little sad. But, who knows what this new year will have in store. I predict a lot of traveling again. I say that with a trip to San Francisco for a conference where I am the exhibitor rather than the conference planner. So, now I will get to see it from our exhibitors perspective. Maybe this will come in handy for Italy. There's another trip. So that is two so far for this year. Who knows how many more there will be.

Well, this will be a short post since I am pretty tired. I wish you all a wonderful new year and blessings upon this year for you and your families.
