This week I am going to a blogging conference sponsored by BlogHer, a site for women bloggers. It is in New York and over 1000 writers will gather to network and discuss things like legal matters, technical...things and writing topics.
It is an amazing opportunity to meet with other women writers and share ideas and talk about concerns.
I am sharing my hotel room with another writer, http://momotics.com, a 25 year old dynamo who has knocked my socks off with her energy and ambition.
Unfortunately, the third person we had lined up to share out room in order to reduce costs, bailed on us YESTERDAY, yep, that’s right, THREE DAYS before the conference. So we are scrambling to find another roommate.
Don’t you deserve a three night break in New York City?!?! E-mail me and we can talk.
The response from everyone who read about my sink was overwhelming. I am so blessed to have so many warm and loving people in my life.
One of my dear blogging friends has a friend who works for American Standard (bathroom and kitchen fixture manufacturer). She contacted her friend when she saw my post and American Standard is going to give me a sink for free!! I would have been grateful for something that had fallen off the truck, but they even let me pick out the sink and faucet!!
I don’t know when they will be delivered, but it is all in the works. I also have two people who have offered to install it for me. I am so lucky! I will do a post when everything is done.
Patty, the friend who initiated all of this, has two web sites. One is http://brokenteepee.blogspot.com/ and the other is http://pricillaspeaks.blogspot.com/. Patty has a farm and raises goats, makes wonderful goatmilk soap, which she sells on Etsy, and she also makes beautiful jewelry, also sold on Etsy. I have purchased her soap, which I love and have given as gifts and her jewelry, which I get constant compliments on. Here are her Etsy shops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/happygoatsoap and http://www.etsy.com/shop/BrokenTeepeeDesigns .
Originally a Jersey Girl, she is a good and generous friend. Thank you Patty!
The heat has broken and I starting to feel like a human being again.
A weak ‘yay’!
