Naptown

Two times a year we have conference.  In June, it is in Bloomington.  In December it is in Indianapolis.  Usually, I spend the first night alone, then the second night, the duggles joins me.  This weekend, he decided to stay home with Chelsea.  So I have this very nice, quiet hotel room all to myself.  A mini vacation.  Up until Thanksgiving day, I had worked 31 days straight - between my full-time job at the university and my part-time job in Nashville.  Then we had company from Thursday until Sunday.  Then I returned to work on Monday and started preparing for conference weekend.  It is pretty sweet to have this quiet room tout seul.

 I'm sitting in this chair with my feet up on the footstool right now.  I love to have my feet up!

I think conferences are exhausting.  Especially when you are putting it on.  When you are on you are ON.  Smiling, smiling, smiling.  Greeting.  Organizing.  Taking minutes.  Answering questions.  Alert. 
So I'll treasure this time in this quiet room.  When I returned to my room after dinner, snow was falling softly on the city.  It was so pretty.  I'm settling in for a little winter's nap.  A nap in naptown.
