Okay, I lied

Posted on: August 3, 2008

I wasn’t sure what kind of computer access I’d have this week while in Denver. But I was able to snag a few minutes at the hotel provided computer.

Just wanted to let everyone know I made it in okay. Had a panic attack because the place was a 17(?) seater and I’ve never flown anything quite that small. Got off in Salina for a few minutes and considered calling DH to come pick me up so I could just drive out. But I managed to get myself back on and got here without incident. (Panic attacks and anxiety are no fun!)

Today I did a bit of sightseeing. Hit the Denver Art Museum and checked out their extensive collection of Native American art. Impressive! Then I walked over to the public library and checked that out. Very nice. The best part is the awesome storytime room.

There was an opening reception this evening that I hit for a short while. I’m not much into the small talk, so after that appearance I headed off to find some dinner. And now I’m heading back to my hotel room (which is quite sumptuous, btw) to knit, watch tv, and generally relax. The next two days are going to be full of learning and processing and thinking and planning and networking and whatever else it is we do at these things.

…wrist. I never realized quite how liberating it can be to leave your watch at home. Even when I don’t have to be somewhere I find myself checking it often. But this week, I took it off. In fact, I’m not ever sure where it is right now. And I don’t care!

We went to the Oz Museum in Wamego today. It was really neat. I’ll share pictures later. I’ve been having more fun this week with my Flip camera.

We might go over to Abilene tomorrow…the DH and me. It’s been too hot this week to do anything outdoors. I’ve been wanting to visit the Eisenhower Presidential library there. I also hear there is a good restaurant somewhere in town.

Thought for the day: that bright golden haze on the meadow that guy sang about. It was because it was hot and humid. Not my idea of a beautiful morning. Yes, I will be complaining about the heat until the temperatures go back below 90 and the humidity stays in the rivers and lakes where it belongs. *laugh*
