March 2009: In Brief

The Allergy Shots Are Working!
Yay! Yay! Yay!  The real test comes this April.  Still, it was fantastic having a clear head and plenty of energy in March.

2 Family Dinners–  The good thing about staying in my family’s "home town" is that the more adventurous family members come back frequently.  So I can be a homebody and still have fun family dinners with my dad and sibs.

SCBWI Westminster Conference–  There was the usual helpful/inspiring information, a chance to hang with fun people, and even a presentation on the Library of Congress’s cool website, plus, conference cookies.

Driving Glasses– I read so many books and blogs I’ve changed my distance vision.  So far, my plan to only wear my glasses for driving is working.  Life is eerily clear when I drive and happily misty-and-water-colored when I don’t.  Luckily I don’t drive very often.
