Blissdom Blues



So many of you are checking in as we speak to the Gaylord Texan for what will be an amazing few days of the Blissdom conference.  I purchased my ticket and booked by room back in September and was all set to attend, roomie lined up and all. 

I didn't know I was pregnant when I signed up for the conference, but even once I did learn I didn't think much of it...until about a month ago I started getting nervous about attending at 33 weeks pregnant. 

Could I do it?

Sure, but how miserable would I be and would it even be worth it if I'm miserable the entire time.  It hurts me right now to drive 15 minutes home from work, much less 4.5 hours to Dallas.  My work conference to San Antonio was almost too much last week...I was DONE by 5pm each night and the long drive was exhausting.  It's hard to sit for a long period of time.  It's hard to stand for a long period of time and I can barely sleep in my own bed, much less a new bed.  I'm huge and starting to get miserable so being social, cute, charming, funny and networking isn't high on my list of things I want to do these days. 

Regardless of all these reasons, I made the very hard decision not to attend this year (kiss that non-refundable $300 ticket goodbye).  I feel even more guilty that Ashley, my roomie for Blissdom decided not to attend either once I pulled out. 

The blogosphere (and my inbox) is filled with Blissdom notices...plus a few days off of work would have been so nice...so I'm feeling a little blue that I'm not there, even though I know I made the best decision for myself. 

I hope everyone who is in Dallas has the best time!  Hopefully I will see you all there next year!  Learn lots and I look forward to reading your conference recaps on the blogs. 

Love,
Chelsea

    1. Maybe next year both of us can make it. Fingers crossed it's in Dallas again and not back to Nashville.
