My weekend starts tonight

I am fortunate to get to attend the Zoe West Coast conference in Fresno this weekend. Although my section of the conference doesn't begin until tomorrow evening, I'm hitching a ride with Rick and Virgina, who need to be there Friday morning. I'll be spending the night with them in Antioch tonight so that we can leave early tomorrow morning. That means I have a lot to do to get ready today. First order of business is to get to the gym, then come home and shower and start a load of laundry. Then it's school with the kids, followed by packing for the weekend (I'll have to spend Saturday night with them as well, as we'll get back too late to drive back here). Rick and VJ have both been a bit under the weather the last couple of days. I'll have to remember to take my Airborne before I leave today. I don't want to risk not being able to sing this weekend!

I'm really looking forward to the conference and hope it will be a time of renewal... Plus, there will be a guy there who grew up in the same church I did back in Missouri; I want to find out how his folks are doing. They moved away from SE Missouri to Tennessee, so I don't get to hear about them from my mom anymore.

Unless I can find a free wi-fi connection (a totally rare thing in "You just breathed; you owe me money" California) and post using my PocketPC, after today y'all won't be hearing from me until I get back home Sunday. Brian will be single-dadding it while I'm gone. He's good at it, probably better than I am at single-momming it.

Whooppee! If it's anything like the one in Nashville (where I met Jenni ;-) you will have your socks blessed off!

Have you lived in SE MO? I lived in Poplar Bluff eons ago--do you know where that is??

Enjoy the conference!!!

Do I know where it is???? To quote Napoleon Dynamite, "Heck Yes!" I lived my whole life in Sikeston, JB! This world just gets smaller and smaller.

By the way, JB... these are the times I wish you had an email on your profile, like Donna mentioned on her blog a while back.

I just recognized your picture with the Praise Team picture in the Pepperdine lectureship program. That was funny to notice you. I can't wait to hear your group, along with all the others.
Hey JB I lived about 50 miles north of Poplar Bluff for quite a few years!
Have a marvelous time this weekend.

Fitting, that your worship conference should begin with a visit to Antioch! ;) Say, since you are so involved with church worship singing, you might find my brother's blog (http://www.commonsaints.blogspot.com) interesting -- he's the music minister at a church in Colorado and is somewhat outspoken on his views of worship. Whether you agree or disagree with his viewpoints, it'll get the cogs in your head turning. Hope your conference is a great blessing!

Hope you have a great trip and I hope it *is* a time of renewal for you.

Sounds like an amazing experience - both for you and for Brian.

I've begun selecting hotels based exclusively on their policies re. WiFi. If they offer it for free, I'm there. If not, I'll pass. I often call the front desk from home just to make sure they know enough about it to help me in case I need it (SSID, passwords, etc.) If they're clueless, they lose my business.

Safe travel. Looking forward to more words from ya.
