I was so sad to see that my last post was January 12th, but I do have to give myself a break. I’ve been busy with life and presentations. My oldest daughter is off to college this fall, but before she decided to go to Chicago or Boston, I wanted her to experience the cold. Especially since we live in Southern California. I tied our college visitation trip with a SQL Saturday in Chicago, which happily was her idea. For those of you who are curious, Victoria will be attending Emerson in Boston. The school and the city are both a perfect fit for her. (This also means occasional I’ll be able to visit beautiful Boston to see my daughter and hopefully present at a SQL event or two.)
I’ve also been writing abstracts for new presentations for this year, creating a new presentation called “Be a Role Model for Women in Tech through Blogging”, and presenting, presenting, presenting.
My youngest daughter, oldest daughter, and two nieces are also graduating from either high school or the 8th grade this coming month. Sadly, I may not get to write in May either. The good news, I will be writing and creating presentation through the summer. For those that have been reading my blog this past year, you know that my oldest daughter and I go to a coffee shop every Sunday. She studies for school and I write. This will be the last Summer we get to do this together until her school breaks. I will miss this time with her. I’m hoping my youngest daughter will carry on the tradition. We’ll see.
