My Awesome "Working" Vacation!!

I just returned from the most amazing convention I've ever attended! Each July is the Usborne Books & More National Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While I was "working" and receiving great training, I haven't had more fun!

Maybe it was the limo ride from the airport!

Maybe it was spending time with friends!

Maybe it was being fed 3 meals a day, and not having to do the dishes!

Maybe it was the amazing speaker Jim Trelease, who was truly inspiring! If you haven't read his book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" I strongly recommend it!

I even got my picture with him, and had him sign my copy!

Maybe it was becoming more motivated to build my business!

Maybe it was taking my picture with the CEO, and be given extra incentives to grow!

Maybe it was playing games with a bunch of new friends every night until 1 or 2 a.m.
All in all, it was a spectacular event! I love the company, I love my job, and I know I can make a difference in many children's lives starting with my own! What more could I want?

If I Get Close Enough......

I think Cade misses Eric the most, simply because he doesn't understand what is going on, or why he just never came home from work one day.

I got Eric a webcam and sent it in the mail. He got it today, so when we talked on MSN we were able to use video. We could see and hear him, but he can't see us. (My webcam isn't here yet.)

Anyway, Cade loved it! He tried to climb right up into the computer. I think he thought the closer he got to him, maybe he could really touch him. Very cute and sad all at the same time.

We are hanging in there though! Only 15 more weeks. LOL
