I was one of four selected to go to a training in Springfield Missouri. I will be gone until Friday. I am not really sure how I feel about it. It has caused me to have to change up a lot of things and switch around my quilting class. I also do not like to be away from home. That is just me...
I am going to put a positive spin on it, I am basically an optimist looking for a silver lining. It's how I do things.
I am not driving, that in and of itself is a bonus. I don't like to drive for one thing and it gives me almost four hours each way to work on beanies. I am not a fan of meeting new people, it simply isn't my thing. Probably has a lot to do with being a military brat. That part will be a challenge. I get to room with one of the sweetest young women, that is another positive.
I guess I am ambiguous. I am hopeful for the best, I want it to be worth my time, especially as I am going so far away from my family. I have taken this class three times before, so I am concerned as to it's value for me. It's a new format, so maybe there are nuggets that will resonate, maybe there is something I didn't hear before that will pop out to me.
I don't know if I will be able update my blog this week... we'll see... I will take my laptop. I am excited to go to Springfield, I have only driven through. And I will enjoy time with my peers.
