Post Sarasota

Sarasota was fun; however, I hardly got to go to any of the presentations...well actually there were only a few that I was interested in. I got to those so I shouldn't complain. It just wasn't a good year for me as far as breakout sessions were concerned.

I have scads of FSGS newsletter work to do. The February issue should be jammed packed. I'm hoping that the "fishing" I was doing at the meeting pays off in articles from new writers. I get so tired seeing my own name in print. I'm gonna start making up nome de plumes just for fun. I once wrote under the name Crystal Klear Wrighter (say it)and had a whole company guessing who Crystal was. The writers made up all sorts of wild stories about who Crystal was. Perhaps I can come up with a fun one for a genealogist.

I ended up with a cold. It started in my head and dropped to my chest. I'm sure I ran into the germ somewhere in Sarasota. I've lost my voice twice. It's such a pain.

On the plus side, I'll have four days to do all sorts of things that I've been meaning to do. Writing, writing, writng, printing, printing, printing, emailing, emailing, get the idea. I have a newsletter competition to enter, a book to update, and other projects to work on.

Garry and I will go out for dinner on Thursday. I might even be able to get out into my garden (heaven!).

Going to Sarasota

Garry is bach it this weekend because Pattie, Cathy and I are off to Sarasota for the FSGS Annual Conference. For me that means meetings since I'm the newsletter editor, and therefore, on the board. With the vendor table added to the mix, I'm not sure how many sessions I'm going to be able to get to attend. It should be a fun weekend.

FSGS Newsletter

Today, I found a new website that I'd like to write about in the February 2011 issue of the newsletter. I've written to the owners of the website hoping that they will want me to do the article.

I also bought a fishing vest today. I'm planning on wearing it--diginity be damned--at the state conference next week. I'm hoping to snag a few article writers for me and for Cori. We'll see what I'm able to scare up in the way of help in filling the pages.
