TSS: Thank Goodness for a Long Weekend Edition

It is official people, I am really exhausted.

Like, more exhausted than when Daniel was a little tiny newborn.

If you didn’t know, I spent most of the last week in New York for BEA. I flew home yesterday on a 9 am flight, which necessitated getting up and out the door at 6 am to catch a cab. Of course, once I got home, Daniel wanted to be with me, and not just let me go and take a nap. Obviously I wanted to be with him too after so long away (previously the most time I’d spent away from him was about 7.5 hours), but I also wanted SLEEP.┬áSo I’m ever-so-slowly recovering. Luckily I don’t have to go back to work until Wednesday, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be taking a lot of naps when Daniel does over the next few days.

So, I’m not actually ready yet to give you all a big BEA recap. Although I have managed to put the books that came home in my carry-on suitcase away, I haven’t had the mental energy to process the last week. I will say, though, that BEA was great, and Book Blogger Convention was even better. Also, I’m super excited to start going through everyone’s Armchair BEA posts. I saw a few of them that happened to be linked up on Twitter, and they looked fantastic. I wish I could have done both!

If you want a little more information about my thoughts on BEA and BBC and don’t want to wait until I emerge from the fatigue fog, you can check out the special That’s How I Blog show that Nicole, Lenore, Allie, and I did on Friday night. Hopefully it actually makes sense, but I’m not guaranteeing anything, because we were pretty exhausted by that point.

    Glad to hear you made it home alright. Good luck catching up on sleep! And also, can’t wait to check out that podcast :)

  • It was fabulous to talk to you in person! I’ll be listening to the radio show later today.

  • I’m sad I didn’t get to chat with you in person at BEA or BBC! I came home completely exhausted too, but I am child-free and thankful.

  • Welcome back! Sounds like you had lots of fun and hope you get some rest :)

  • Sleep is definitely on my top 5 list of things to do today. The BEA and Blogger Con were hectic, exciting, wonderful, and tiring. It was great meeting you!

  • Reading the Armchair BEA posts will be a good way for you to unwind – we had SUCH great participation and fantastic contributions!

    But relax this weekend, and enjoy Daniel. Welcome back!

  • OK, I’m listening to your show! You guys are having too much fun! I give you so much credit for pulling this off with a baby at home. One of these days, I hope that we can meet in person! Now go get some rest!

  • Even with sharing a room I feel like I didn’t get to see enough of you! Does Chicago have a book festival?

  • Sounds like you have a wonderful time – I will listen to the ‘slumber party’ show later today :).

    I was hoping to come in for a day but with the move and my husbands travel schedule I couldn’t make it this year. I will be there next year though!

    Of the books you received, what are you most excited to read? I’m hearing exicitement over Room, we are reading this for the MMBC later this year (I haven’t read it yet).

    Have a wonderful weekend, Mari

    • I’m not sure, exactly. It is all such a haze, I’m not entirely sure what I got! I brought some of them home, and I could answer that for what I have on my shelves already, but I also got a lot of great books that are in a box on its way to me right now. I’m going to post about the ones that seem most exciting either next week or the following week.

  • Glad you made it home safely. I think exhaustion abounds this weekend for all BEA attendees. Here’s to hoping for a quick recovery :)

  • Exhausted is not the word! I am happy to have had today to begin to relax a bit and tomorrow before I get back to work.

  • Glad you made it home safe and sound! Looking forward to seeing what books you received and hearing all about your experiences. I’ve been recovering for 3 days now and am still exhausted, so good luck! *L*

  • I can imagine that BEA/BBC is exhausting! I’ve read about all the things people have been doing and I can’t even begin to imagine what your feet must feel like! I’m glad to hear you had a good time though!

  • Sounds like a very busy week. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts once you’re rested enough to figure them out!

  • I’m glad you hear you made it home ok. I was only in NYC for a few days, but I’m still exhausted from all of it. I hope you get lots of naps :)

  • I took a five hour nap yesterday, almost immediately after I walked in the door. And then I slept for ten hours. And then I took another nap this afternoon. I’m hoping I can make it through work tomorrow!

    It was great to meet you!

    I didn’t get to go to BEA but I do remember business conferences and then coming back to a little one that needs you. Maybe you can catch some naps with Daniel. There is nothing better than a sleeping child on top of you. Hope you get caught up soon.
