Blogworld Expo day two

Sat in on a terriffic milblog session, Blogging from the Front. Of course my favorite speaker of all time is Jack Army and he didn't disappoint. I was surprised to see the audience demographic almost an even split between male and female. Not that that's a bad thing, just an interesting observation for me. It was surprising to see the audience a little on the sparce side. I thought the milblog track of seesions was quite popular and full of relevant current events. I could be biased...nah. I'm a little on the tired side today, and not for the reason you would think...we went to the 10pm Cirque de Solie show last night. We went to one that was based on the music from the Beetles. WOW! It was amazing. Really a good show and if you ever get the opportunity to go, do it. It was cool.

Blogworld fun

Here at the Expo and already having fun. (No kids...coincidence?...I think not)
Tons of stereotypical geeky bloggers to laugh at and at the same time some great bloggers to learn stuff from. Not to suggest at all that you can't learn anything from the geeks quite the contrary in fact. Anyhoo...
Jack Army and I are sitting in on the milblogging track. Good info and although some of it was a wee bit over my head, it amazes me how far blogging, specifically milblogging, has come. I know I sometimes crawl too far under my parenting rock, but I had no idea the White House sat down face to face with milbloggers...That's cool! Jack would have loved to be in on that one. I am sure had they known he was available, instead of doing war stuff in Iraq, he would have been invited. We are staying at the cool castle Excalibur Hotel. It's pretty neat...our little princesses will be so jealous..oohh not to mention the pajama party ...they love a good pj bash.

Long time no blog

Hopefully my four readers haven't missed me too much.
A lot has been going on in the past month or so. Jack Army returned from Iraq and we all know what that means...Yep I gotta share my computer. Only because his is in the shop getting un-desertified--which means dumping out the sand from Iraq. Not that I mind of course, I mean I don't blog very often anyway... far too busy being a mom and all.
But there is good reason to blog today! We are in Las Vegas at the 2007 Blogworld & New Media Expo. Unfortunately our bags haven't made it yet so excuse the stentch. We got here last night from Hawaii where we left our children in the care of friends for five whole days! I just can't believe it. Five days with no children what will I do? Who will follow me to the bathroom? What will I worry about...oh I'm sure I'll find do people who walk around with their mouths open get sick more? Nah I'm kidding...any mom knows the worrying doesn't stop because of distance in fact I think it makes it worse. Anyhoo...I'm excited to be here (kid free) and to see Jack in all his blogging glory...He's on a panel, how exciting.
I'm sure we'll both be blogging in the the next few days (hours for Jack ha ha) so stay tuned!
