Rabbit rabbit – back from National Harbor, MD

This post will fail my posting standards on two points:

> There is no twee April Fool prank. When I was younger, I’d flip the site backward on April Fool’s, but this year I basically forgot what day it was.

> This is a about a trip I took, but I have no great photos. This is because Spring Business Trip 2015 was actually TNP’s very own Annual Meeting for our members.

On the first night we had our staff party at the dueling piano bar. Drinks were free. Judgment was bad.

I’m trade-publication famous!

I try very hard to separate work from blog, but I’m very proud and can’t let this go by without saying something…

Last month, Associations Now magazine (official magazine of ASAE) interviewed my manager and me about how we manage data collection at TNP. The interview was published online last week and I think it turned out really well.

You can read it here: Member-Data Collection: The Never-ending story.

I love my job!

Wordless Wednesday: How to drive me crazy

The elevator buttons at my office building spin around. I could easily spend all of my time fixing them on every floor.

A depressing dream

Last night I had a dream…

It was depressing. I don’t share these feelings a lot, because you can look at my blog and life and fill in enough blanks to make sense of things.

If you’re not in for sadness today, you can flee without guilt. Which is also why this post isn’t being shared on Facebook, because everyone there thinks I’m a giant ball of happy all the time, and breaking that image even the tiniest bit results in my having to comfort others when I’m the one that’s blue. Twitter gets the post because it’s a far bigger sea and I can be more real there.

Back to the beginning. Last night I had a dream…

We were moving into a house and I was pregnant. Big-bellied pregnant and happy. A stranger asked me when my due date was and I didn’t know. My belly shrank. Someone else asked me what the ultrasound looked like – I panicked because I never had an ultrasound. My belly shrank further. Someone asked to feel it kick. But there was no kick, and my belly shrank.

The questions kept coming and my stomach shrank to normal size and I realized I was never pregnant to begin with. And the last person called me “a fraud of a woman.”

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Yeah. Ooof, right? I think I’m going to be extra kind to myself for the next few days.
