I am taking a trip to DC this weekend and Riley is staying home with Grandma, Grandpa, and Chloe. Grandma will sleep in my bed with her (like she always does when I go on trips)…because Riley’s spoiled! I’ve been getting everything ready, but I don’t think Riley’s caught on because I haven’t pulled my suitcase out just yet.
As soon as that suitcase comes out, she knows what’s going on. My mom said she used to look for me when I would go on a trip (when she was younger), but now she knows the drill when she sees the suitcase. I travel 2-3 times a year doing trainings for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). This time I’m training state trainers in their Peer-to-Peer program in Washington DC. In June, I’m traveling to Denver to do a mentor training, and I’m excited about that because I haven’t been to Denver in YEARS and YEARS!
Also, I’m going to the BlogPaws Conference near DC in May!! I’m even more excited about that than anything else! I want to know who else of my blogging pals are going?? I want to meet you!
