>I’ve been preparing for the Romantic Times Conference for at least a month or more, and tomorrow I fly out to Houston wondering if I’ve thought of everything. I sure hope so, given I spent almost $350 just to ship 10 boxes of promo, books, signage, prizes and anything else you can name out to the hotel.
As for my suitcases, well one is primarily for clothes, the other has two (yep two!) small, folding carts so I can drag around my boxes of promo items as opposed to carrying them. I really do despise lugging heavy things around. I hope that I can watch the TSA staff go through my luggage when I check in, because I want to explain why I’ve got those damn carts in my suitcase. After all, if they scan the damn things, I’m certain those boxes with small wheels are gonna trigger some sort of red flag. And I’ve got breakables in that suitcase, and I don’t want some harried TSA person tossing my stuff around just to see what those carts are. I’ve got that suitcase packed so damn tight, that if they do open it up, I KNOW they’re not going to be able to get everything back in the suitcase without breaking or bending something. *sigh* I just hope the 2nd suitcase I’m carrying is big enough for all my clothes. If not, I’m not sure what I’m going to do. Maybe only take one cart? We’ll see.
I’ll try to post some pictures from the conference, just to tease you as to all the hot bodies you’re missing. The DH doesn’t need to be jealous though, these guys are generally young enough to be my sons, and/or they wouldn’t think about looking at me twice. I’m just not svelte enough. LOL
