CHEA Convention 2015 — Day #2 “I Get Lost”

CHEA day #2 I get lost Christian Home Educators Association

Today, I got lost. I was looking for a session called “Preschool Meets Real Life”. I teach kindergarten at church, and I’m always interested in the new tips and tricks and games moms have discovered. And I got lost.

I’m an intelligent human being with an excellent sense of direction. I have never ever been lost.

The map visual described my desired location as the building next door to the Pasadena Convention Center. I saw it through the glass windows. It was right there. Piece of cake.

I just needed to find a way in.

Medical Transcription-ing

You guys know how I blew about half of my life savings (or, one-year savings, since I’ve only been working that long) to pay for my medical transcription at-home schooling.

Well, here’s an update on that.

I thought I was gonna hate it. I thought it would be painful, bring me horrible post-traumatic stress of highschool. I thought I would regret and miss that money I could’ve spent on less-important, non-career-enhancing hobbies or activities or. . shoes.

But I’m pleased to announce so far so good!

CHEA Day #3 And Some Life Decisions (2014)

Congratulations everyone! We have successfully survived CHEA 2014!

It was fun.

I got a blueberry muffin for breakfast this morning, followed by a nice long shower since we learned our lesson from being an hour early yesterday. Our classes start at 11:30 not 10:30.

The first class I took was called “Homemaking For The Domestically Challenged.” I loved it. The speaker was blond and cute and her husband was right there, handing out papers for the drawing. She talked about time management and organization and cleaning and hospitality and meal planning. I was taking notes the whole time. I love women who can talk about being a mom and wife in a fun sense, as opposed to a dragging her feet in an obligation to be happy to her kids, sense. It pumps me up to see it.
