What's that Buzzing?

It's me buzzing around.

Tomorrow, I leave for Anaheim for the ELCA Youth Ministry Extravaganza. It's a conference for folks (professional and volunteer) who work with young people and happen to be Lutheran.

I like the event as a networking tool. I get to see and hang out with folks who I only see once per year. I make good contacts for The Naming Project. I see friends who I went to college or worked at camp with. It's just an all-around good time.

I tend to ignore what's going on in the general sessions. My agenda is to bring a list of people who I want to connect with and try to work my way through the list. That's why it's called "the Network".

What I don't like is the day before I leave. Today, I'm trying to get a ton of stuff done. I still need to pack. I need to send off emails. I need to rest. But somehow, I'll find myself on that plane tomorrow and whatever I got done will be accomplished, and what I didn't get done will just have to wait.

I'll have fun at the Extravaganza, no matter what. However, I do have some special goals for myself this weekend. I want to sleep well (not up too late). I want to do a little morning stretching (I have a hotel room to myself, so this is easier to do when no one is watching me). I want to connect with various people (list to be determined). I also NEED to do some of my MBA homework (in the hotel room).

I'm off to LA!

You are probably in the air as I write this. Our youth director from "Cookie Town" will be there. I hope you meet her.

Also the new Ex. Dir. for the place you love on Lake V arrived yesterday.

Enjoy your time in CA.
