    Ann inspired me this morning, so I'm starting early........

    Today is Sunday, March 1, 2009.
    There are 131 days until National Conference 2009, Wave 1.


    As we get closer, tips will be coming! Right now if you can afford it, keep an eye out for flights. There are deals that com San Fran for $220 (cheapest I have ever seen to Chicago).

    See you in Chicago!!!!

    I know, I am SOOOO excited! I just looked up airfare from Phoenix, AZ this morning and they are about $220 after all fees and taxes!! Last year I spent about $364 on air. I put an email into my AD to see if it would be too premature to jump onto this deal or if we can get a slightly lower rate (based upon the average that my AD has seen in the past 8 years).

    My DH is thinking of coming with me and we'll make an extended vacation out of it--if my mom will be able to babysit, that is. :D

    I need to make sure that I am walking first before I decide what to wear.... 2 of my team went inactive this month and prospects are not looking very good. I do have a full schedule this month so I will work on the recruiting . Now to get everybody qualified is another thing....

    Silly me, I should have said for those of us who need it. I'm jealous that you can drive in (or you take the L). We'll see you in a few months.

    I'll have to wear something to match my red feather boa my director bought me....(a deal we made last year at conference...if I didn't promote by leadership I have to wear a boa when I walk at national...me & a clustermate had commented on how we'd never wear that stuff!)

    He does love them. When they get bigger he carries them around the yard like their his kids. They might start laying when we are in Chicago.

    Cathy I can't believe you paid almost $600 for a ticket. I hope they go down one more time, because I didn't have the $$ when they were really low for us. They're sitting at $350 for us right now.

    Start thinking about how many rooms you need, if you want to reserve your room through exper. you need to do it the first day, so your not put on a waiting list. Remember 1st night down.

    If you do a non conference hotel & book online it's all upfront.

    Flights dropped this week for us too. I got R/T out of San Fran for $220. That's the cheapest I have ever seen to Chicago. Remember registration opens in 2 & 1/2 weeks. Fill your April, so you can earn conference for FREE!
