I’m not sure how to report on my week. I feel like it’s not even on the map, in terms of working on my goals. I didn’t really do any writing, for example. But nonetheless, I feel like it was a fabulous experience that will help me with my goals and life in general.
We spent the week in New Jersey at the first-ever Life Without Instructions unschooling conference. We are an unschooling family, and three of us absolutely LOVE these conferences. The one we attended in NH for several years is no longer (sad face), but this one was fantastic. Many of our friends who used to go to the NH conferences were there, which made it special. We also met a whole bunch of lovely new friends. ElvenTiger enjoyed hanging out with her teen tribe. We had a fun but whirlwind visit to New York City. The sessions that BlackLion and I offered at the conference were very well received, and we’ve had a lot of folks showing interest in Feline Dreamers and what we do. I sold some books, too. Most importantly, we had a fantastic time!
We traveled all day on Friday to get back home. We dropped a couple of friends off in Boston, and experienced lots of traffic going into and back out of the city. We weren’t grumpy about it or anything, but it did take a lot longer to get home than we’d thought.
On Saturday, a dear friend was getting married, and I was the officiant! It all went very well, and was a really special day. Today I drove up the coast with my Mom, Dad, and brother Eric to go to lunch. It was a gorgeous day and we had fun together, and took lots of pictures of the foliage and the pretty harbor.
Now, I’m tired. I’m an introvert, and while I did practice self-care during the conference, it was still a LOT of input. I have the feeling I’ll be processing all these new ideas and inspirations and interactions for a while. I’m thankful, and feeling very blessed, even as I sit here in my PJs and chill out.
Goals for this week:
- Recover from my busy week by practicing self-care and writing in my journal.
- Get ready for the upcoming coaching course by posting my pre-homework and organizing my notes from the September course.
- Get back to working on my DSP book.
- Finish and send my ROW 80 sponsor post.
I hope you have a restful and productive week!
