Sitting In Orlando

Drinking my morning coffee, getting a very slow start to the day (I'd though I'd be moving sooner than this). Well, I suppose I am actually being productive about something, because I've sorted through one e-mail account, forwarded a bunch of things to one or the other of two different accounts, and have gotten my morning coffee mostly in, eh? But it's a slow start. It feels good. The rest of the time spent here... won't be so slow.

I'm here for my annual AORN Congress meeting, when my professional association will conduct business, present educational sessions, run one of the health care industries largest trade shows, and yes in the evening have a lot of fun.

This is not, however, a vacation. Somehow, a bunch of people, not just some of my nursing colleagues, seem to think it is. After all, I'm not going to Hospital, so it's not Work, right? On the other hand, there are a few of my friends (nursing colleagues and not-nurses both) who know exactly what I mean. Oh, Yeah, Baby, not going to Hospital. Not getting days off either, eh? (Hey, Skippy, RWI, sound familiar? *EG*)

On the other hand, despite the hectic nature of the time, it does seem to bring some spiritual renewal and refreshment.

I guess I should get cleaned up and dressed and go over to the convention center.

Yup. So does another friend. And, she decided to make it a funny, but the funny went over my head for two reasons. 1st, I'd not had enough coffee yet. 2nd, there is a nursing association called ACORN. :)

Are you kidding? Just because I haven't seen any yet doesn't mean they didn't find a place to stow away.

I think breaking routine is good, regardless of whether it's actually a vacation.

Although real vacations are good too. IHG and I haven't had one in forever.

I like what one of my friends says, "It's not a vacation unless you vacate." She means the house. So on that count, I guess this is a vacation. Except, as I said, my schedule is more full than a regular work day.
