WSAJ Convention day 3 continued

It is high noon and I squeeze in a run before hanging out with Cristina at the pool.   With AAJ convention having occurred last month, here is what I notice.  When my kids don't come with me, I socialize much more in between all the events.  When they attend, I am conscious about needing to spend as much time as possible with them.   I never achieve a perfect balance with work and family.   I'm constantly saying to my kids - what do you want to do today.  This is code for - how am I going to fit in everything that needs to be fit in today.


We go to the small pool where she has been since the morning.  She lasts about thirty minutes before she's tired of the sun and goes back to the condo.  I am loaded with ipod and chick lit.   The next thing I know, my phone is ringing, Cristina's on her way back, and my hand has fallen asleep from me laying the wrong way on top of  it.  The problem by the way, with me taking a nap in the middle of the day, is that I will still be writing a blog at 1:30 am.

We return to our cottage, rustle up suitable attire, and off we go to the big bash at The Great Hall.  What happens there you wonder?  Well, words cannot describe.  Here is the video.
