Blogging brings me joy, it brings me a sense of community with other people that I wouldn't normally have being a stay at home mom that rarely leaves her home.
The deal is that I don't get out much. I am a Non-mormon living in Utah, the town I live in doesn't care for outsiders and finding friends has been a little difficult. Without the friendship I have found on the internet....I surely would have lost my mind. Blogging is like my job!
So last year when I heard about the BlogHer conference in San Francisco....I thought how wonderful would it be to meet some of the people that I have 'met' on the internet and meet more bloggers/friends and learn more about this thing that I love.
A couple weeks ago, I told my sister about BlogHer 09. She is a new blogger and said she would go with me. We got really excited and started making plans. When I told Calvin that I was going to Chicago in July. He said NO. Then on Wednesday, I mentioned again that I was going to BlogHer and explained the importance of it. And then he said something to me that I don't think I will ever forget. He said....
Are you going to use your own money to go to BlogHee?
My own money? Seriously? Your money IS my money. Here is an illustration.....and it's BlogHER, not Blog HEE.
After I explained how his money goes into the little piggy and then directly into MY piggy, I also told him that I was planning on using the $1000 that Obama is going to give me.
The next day, I attended a playdate in Liberty (ironic since I wanted to LIBERATE myself) and we discussed how inconsiderate it was of my husband be less than excited for me to do something for myself AND for him to expect me to somehow come up with my own money when I don't have a job outside the home.
Well, we hatched a plan where I would either charge Calvin for sex...or childcare.
I'll let you know how it goes. Either way....
I'M Going To BlogHer 09!
