I left Wednesday afternoon and returned Saturday afternoon. I was at the CUE conference in Palm Springs, CA.
CUE. Well it is a conference for computer using educators, and it was a blast. And no, I didn't spend the whole time by the pool.
Actually, I spent very little time there. Instead I was inside a conference center where I learned a lot. Some of it I can bring back and use right away. Other things, like using ipod touches in the classroom, well I/my district just doesn't have the funds for that. Now if someone would like to offer me a grant, then I will start tomorrow. I can really see how it could help the kids with so much.
And sometimes I was just way overwhelmed by how much technology I was trying to use at one time and could see how it could drive kids bonkers.
Oh yeah, and see that shiny red thing above. I won that mini laptop while I was there from IVS computer technology (vendor). Please ignore the bad hair and ugly green shirt, that got me the winning raffle ticket, that I am wearing over my other shirt.
On Friday, I did kind of participate in the Friday Night Sew In. I worked on some hexagons by the pool. I still have more to go. Not much but still more.
Then Saturday evening I had a b-day dinner with my brother. He is my one older brothers and boy is he getting old :) We went to one of our favorite Turkish restaurants in town.
Next it was Sunday. Sunday was the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild sew-day. Only me, my hubby (on the shiny laptop) and one other member showed up to sew. I did see a couple other members at the quilt shop where we meet, but they couldn't stay for sewing.
Last night I went shopping for cruise clothes, as I am going on a cruise for spring break. I think I have all my bottoms (capris, skirts and such) figured out, now I just need some tops.
Here we are to tonight. I have been catching up on reading blogs and I am going to bed early. It was been a whirlwind of a week. I am in some serious need of some rest.
