Out into the World . . . .

I love my computer.  I spend way too much a lot of time on blogs and Twitter and Facebook.  I'm always more comfortable behind the keyboard than face to face.  That's not to say I haven't been to a few meet-ups and Diabetes Dinners and other great events.  But mostly it's just shy little me and my laptop.

This picture scares me in a "Terminator" kind of way.

Next week, I'm going out into the real world for a couple events that I'm pretty excited about.  The first is the Boston Health Activist Meetup hosted by Wego Health.  When I first received the email about it, I was pretty interested but I wasn't sure I could go.  I'm actually a few hours away from Boston and I figured a Thursday evening trip might not really work out.  I mentioned it to Pete in passing, and he really encouraged me to go.  So today I changed my "maybe" RSVP status to "Attending" and I can't wait to see who I'll meet and what's in store for us!

Two days later is the ADA Expo in Hartford.  I've never been to one of these before, so I'm not quite sure what it will be like.  But cooking demos?  Product exhibitors?  Leading experts?  All cool!!

So here I go.  Out from behind the computer screen and off to do some D-Stuff in real life.  I'm looking forward to it.  Anyone else in the Boston / Connecticut area attending either of these events?  I'll keep an eye out for you!


  1. I do better on the computer too. But I love meet-ups! They can be so fun. You are coming to see me in May, right??

  2. I'm sorry that I won't be making it to either event but I'm so glad you're getting out there! I'm sure you'll be glad you did :) I hope you enjoy them.

  3. Ahhhh! I WISH that meet up was the day after, because then you could come by and meet the baby!! (I'm having her on the 15th and will be totally out of commission that day.) I'm so bummed!!

    But Chris is excited to finally meet The Knitter if you're able to come visit in May. :D

  4. We're so glad you're coming to our meetup Karen! To be honest, we're a bit nervous too, but definitely excited about meeting everyone.

    Feel free to bring another Health Activist with you as a guest if you'd like!

  5. I can't wait to hear how they go!


Thanks for your comment!
