1. Not sleeping in your own bed, with your own pillow, with your own kitty curled up in the crook of your arms.
  2. Being alone at a Tech conference, does that just spell out L-O-S-E-R???
  3. It’s in downtown Baton Rouge, can you say HIP and HAPPENING?
  4. My toilet got clogged as soon as I got here and the button to call the front desk and housekeeping didn’t work.
  5. The conference runs from 7-5, that’s my normal work hours, isn’t it supposed to be shorter?
  6. I don’t get to kiss my kids goodnight or even yell at them for being too loud.
  7. I don’t get to kiss my husband or shove him when he snores.
  8. I don’t get to get a wet nose kiss from the dog or shush him when he barks at 6am.
  9. I don’t get to play with the kitten.
  10. (and a few good points) I’ll finally learn how to podcast with my students.
  11. I’ll get info on so my kids can safely email and blog.
  12. My hotel is right on the river and next to the beautiful Old Capital Building. (of course I didn’t bring my camera)
  13. I only have to “walk” to work… minus the 2 hour drive here today and 2 hour drive back home on Friday.
