Like a kid on the first day of school….

The last 2 weeks have been – well…sort of crazy. Even for me. Now I know that I can make breakfast preparation on a Tuesday morning seem like a major event….but I don’t think my tendency to “blow things out of porportion” or “embellish – just a smidgen” even comes into play here.

I work on assignment for a regional publication and have written 15 articles in less than 2 weeks.

I recently met with a colleague and friend and COULD be involved in a very HUGE project in the very near future which could take me all the way to my most biggest dream of writing a book. (Because I’ve been so busy with my “day job” it hasn’t really hit me how big this could be.)

I’m getting ready to go to a conference today and will interview two of my current heros…Stacy Julian and Gretchen Rubin. In addition to this – I’ll be around some pretty cool people who write and…well….I’m a bit nervous.

I’ve tried on 4 different outfits and I’m still not ready to committ to what I’ll be wearing. I’m not normally like this. I’m typically a “get up and go” type of gal and don’t spend much time primping and such.

But I feel like a kid on the first day of school. I’m in kindergarten and there will be all sorts of big kids at the Mom 2.0 Summitt who are in 5th grade. They know more than me and worse yet – they all know each other. I won’t know anyone there. I know this sounds kooky – but the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston might as well be Hillside Elementary School today. And I don’t have a new pair of mary janes to wear!

So I kinda feel like today, right now….as I sit in my messy house amongst notes I’ve taken from interviews and first drafts crumpled at my feet… I’m living the dream. Because right now there are so many possibilities and so many things that could happen and I don’t even know what they are. I know it’s up to me. I think I’m ready.
