Monday I leave on a plane to Orlando for the National Diaper Bank Conference. I know, you’re all jealous that I get to go learn the intricacies of running a diaper bank.
Oh, you don’t know what a diaper bank is…neither did I until a couple years ago. A diaper bank provides free diapers to those in need. Of course the charity that I work with, Mary’s Choice, provides so much more than diapers. We provide clothes (all ages), baby supplies, ultrasounds, books, etc free of charge to those in need. I’ve been helping to run the place for around 3 or 4 years (I forget).
While I’m there, though, I’ll get to do a bit of fun stuff, like going to the beach and The Holy Land Experience theme park. And I get to meet up with a friend of mine who just moved to FL this year.
I wasn’t planning to take my laptop, but I’m running out of time to get stories written that are due by the end of the month. I don’t want be trying to recover from traveling and having to pushout 6-10K words or so on a few different stories. I figure I can get some writing done on the plane.
I’m going to try my best to get as much done as I can before I leave, but things keep getting in the way.
Anyway, I’ll check in when I get back. You can follow along on FB. I tend to post picks of all the yummy food and stuff.
