And into the fire. Despite still suffering from jet lag (I've been nodding off to sleep at 8:30 every night when I'm usually up 'til 11 or 12) I'm in the midst of nationals mania. In less than 2 weeks I'll be boarding the plane to Dallas. I just got off a plane. I'm not sure, after the hoopla it took to get home, that I want back on that merry-go-round.
But I'll go. Because it's Dallas. Because I get my pink ribbon. Because I get to have lunch with my editor (I love that I can say that).
However, the fact that I just returned from the vacation of a lifetime means that I am in no way ready to leave again. I have no idea what to wear. I haven't tried a single thing in my wardrobe on - my daily life doesn't usually call for business casual let alone dress formal (I know, shocking. The goats just can't appreciate sequins). I pull the same clothes out from the back of the closet each conference. Normally that wouldn't be a problem...except for the 15 pounds I've lost this year. Who'd have thought I'd ever complain about that?
There are lists to be made, schedules to pull together, shopping trips to plan, not to mention packing. I'm squeezing into two weeks what I normally spread over six. I guess it's good practice - working against a tight deadline :-) So, anyone have advice on how to streamline my process for efficiency? Or even a really good deal on dress pants or little black dresses?
