Trails - Packing

We are in high gear with our packing. Leave first thing in the morning.  CNCH is a fun conference as we know tons of people there.  We will be staying at the Extended Stay, our home away from home.

I am without a computer! I feel like my right hand is tied behind my back and I'm running is circles.  I use a laptop and right in the middle of a nasty letter to at&t, my screen went blank! The battery is over 5 years old so I ordered a new one, hoping that is the problem.  Having to use a work computer is annoying, it has a mouse, I haven't used a mouse in years. We leave for Santa Clara Wednesday, if the battery is not here by Tuesday, I'm heading for the Apple Store.

We will be at CNCH this coming weekend, then from there we go to Phoenix for IWC.  Two weaving conferences in a row. I'm excited.
