Perhaps it's more like AMO...actually missing out.
This is exactly how I'm feeling today. Last year, I purchased a ticket to the Digital Parents conference in Melbourne. I was so excited to press purchase that day. My ticket was emailed to me, I rang and booked accommodation, and started making travel plans.
It was to be a family holiday...one day spent with my bloggy peeps, the rest with the family. Andrew and the kids would explore Melbourne for the day...there was talk of finding penguins, and perhaps catching a footy game if the draw allowed. By footy, I mean rugby league.
Today is the day, and I'm not there.
Instead, I chose to be at home.
The timing is all wrong. I've had way too much time off work recently due to illness, and I couldn't in all good conscience, take another couple of days off.
I'm disappointed, and left wondering what everyone is learning and chatting about. I'm avoiding the twitter stream today...not that I could keep up with the usual chatter anyway.
Thankfully, I was able to sell my ticket, and I hope Lisa has a great time! What are the odds that another LisaW would take my place?
I have my ticket already for Nuffnang's Blogopolis, and I can't wait for that one! It's in Sydney, and it's on a Saturday, so no excuses for not being able to go!
What do you know this Friday?
