Believe it or not, I am still recovering from my conference last week. Going to one is already tiring, hosting one is absolutely exhausting. The conference itself ran from Wednesday through Sunday, but I had to get there on Monday to meet with the hotel staff and plan awards and other behind-the-scenes tasks.
One of the other officers sent out a packing list, thank goodness, which made the packing so much easier. We have three professional days, with casual kick-off and casual dinners.
I like wearing dresses for professional events. Not because I am trying to impress someone. Because I don’t trust myself to match two pieces of clothing together to look professional. Also, with my weight gain, clothing kinda rides up funny and I end up with my gut sticking out or my back showing. Not the time nor the place to be looking a hot mess in front of students.
Although I had fewer options to choose from on this trip, I at least got use out of everything in my suitcase! That meant instead of sorting through clothing when I got home, I just threw everything in the wash because everything got used.
