Made it to Atlanta

engine.JPGThis was the scene for about three hours last night at LAX while we waited for a new oil line to be installed and tested. Eventually we made our way to Atlanta in the same plane, but with a new crew. The flight was appropriately rough, but we made it… in more time than it would’ve taken to fly to Atlanta and back – nine hours! Then there was getting a car in the middle of the night and checking in… but after two hours of sleep I’m up and ready for the edubloggercon07. :)

    Glad you made it safety, even with the delays.
    Enjoy the conference & your 2 hours of sleep.

    Glad you made it. It was funny to recognize you first by hearing you tell someone about the travel problems I had read about in your blog this morning. Hopefully you will be able to catch up on some sleep with things starting a little later in the day tomorrow.

    Thanks for the comment, Alfred. It’s also funny that we met at the edublogger meetup last year, but it took meeting you again for it to sink in. I’m glad this event was at the beginning of the conference and we all had a chance to at least see each other several more times over the next few days. See you online…


    PS. How many blogs do you have? I’m subscribed to several associated with you I think.

    Thanks for the comment, Paul. And thanks for leaving your URL. That looks like a blog I should’ve subscribed to a long time ago. I’m looking forward to picking up more resources from you there. In the meantime, I hope you got to attend NECC (virtually at least). I’ve got a few more related posts to clean up or get posted…

    […] I’m exhausted. Nearly four days after returning from NECC in Atlanta and I’m still exhausted. The adventure on the way to out there left me with only two hours of sleep before heading to the“>edubloggercon. Saturday and Sunday night I did alright getting the sleep and exercise I needed, but after that it was the usual conference whirlwind of staying out too late and then staying up polishing presentations even later. The flight home was another ten hour nightmare (but I was still better off than many of the other edubloggers trying to get home on Wednesday). I got home at 3 am Thursday morning. The following day was lost to resting and recuperating – and things that needed to get done at home. Friday was a mad dash to take care of critical projects, and I again skipped my workout – always a mistake when it comes to my stress level. Since then Saturday and Sunday, though more relaxed and healthy, have been a rush to catch up on email, RSS feeds, and conference follow up. Finally, I am writing my final NECC reflections… but I’m exhausted. I’m ready to put the excitement behind me. (And I hope you’ll excuse this bit of self-indulgent blogging. The exhaustion has turned out to be a big part of the conference experience for me.) […]
