don't fret!

I kept waiting patiently at the airport and all of a sudden a man with a red shirt appeared and he was holding a clipboard and looking around so I asked him if he was my ride in a red shirt and he was...his shirt had the logo on it for the conference I am speaking at and my name was on his clipboard so I wasn't to scared getting in his car and riding off. Plus the other lady came and her name was on his clipboard too :-) I believe his name is Eric. Very nice man. Good driver. Wears red well.

I am safely tucked away in a Comfort Inn and Suites enjoying a King sized bed and some peace and quiet. I am not as filled with dread anymore about being here. It has actually been a nice walk down memory lane with a few people I didn't even know if I'd ever see again and I got a nap. So life is good. Tomorrow I teach two sessions, one I am 100% ready for and the other about 80%. I'll get a little more done tonight and then over lunch. The sessions I am teaching Wed and Thurs are 90% ready to go and I am sure will go smooth.

I was thinking. I could start a public speaking circuit. I'm not horrible at it and what I know is relevant for a lot of people.

Something to think about I suppose.

Although in the future I'm going to make sure I know a little more than "look for a guy in a red shirt" when arriving! I'll ask better questions next time.

I could see you doing the public speaking circuit thing or writing a book... I think you would be very successful at both =)

glad you made it there, and everything seems to be going well. And the fact that you've had time to relax is a great great thing.
