Blissdom '09

get-your-bliss-on Badges

Friday and Saturday the baby and I had the good fortune to be in attendance at the Blissdom '09 conference. I'd be hard pressed to list all the bloggers I met, nor all the old friends I got to hang out with once again.

I learned all sorts of interesting things, which I may or may not ever get around to implementing, but I'm sure would be incredibly helpful if I made use of them.

I know I have more thoughts to share about it all, but before I get to that, I must get out this morning to get a bridge and strings for a violin, because the two big kids start lessons tomorrow and I need to get a tetanus shot because I stepped on a piece of rusty barbed wire in my backyard yesterday and realized it has been 14 years since my last one. Once those minor tasks and a few zillion others have been completed, I'll get back to you.

In the meantime, if you want to hear more about Blissdom, check out my friend Jo-Lynne's recap compilation.


Yay for violin lessons! (former player here) Did the kids chose the instruments, or is this part of a general educational plan?

Diane, we always intended to either sign them up for piano or violin. Since we don't own a piano and my mother brought us my old student violins, it seemed logical to start with the instrument we owned. Then I found someone who would teach them together and come to my house to do the lessons and it seemed perfect.
