This morning I got up at 5:45am and got a shower and got ready for the second day of the conference. I also packed up. It was weird sleeping without Drew. I really am enjoying the time at Marietta and the conference, but I miss my husband. However, it was nice to get away for a bit.
After I got dressed, I went down the hall to see if Sydney, Erica, and Dylan were awake or ready. Sydney answered the door half asleep. She said, it is 7am. I said, I know I just wanted to see who was awake and ready to head to breakfast. I am a morning person. I told them I will see them down at breakfast. I felt bad they weren’t ready. I left their room and knocked on Jake and Zai’s door. Jake answered and said, morning. I said, morning! I told him that I just wanted to see if anyone was awake yet. He said, yup. I said, already I will see you at breakfast. I was beginning to think I was the only one. I took the elevator downstairs and it let me off at the lobby. I stepped out of the elevator. I looked down at my phone so I could text John. Then I looked up and saw him there. I approached him and said, “I was just about to text you. I thought I was the only one up and ready to go. I got some coffee and we went to see what they had for breakfast. It was typical hotel breakfast food.
Eventually everyone came down for breakfast, after we all ate we packed up the car. We were getting a little bit of a slow start to the day. We wanted to sit in on a couple sessions and eat lunch before we left.
When we arrived back on campus and to the conference, they were half way through the 9am sessions. We got coffee and waited for the 10am sessions to start. Sydney, Erica, and myself went to the presentation about how women can use certain strategies in Leadership to shift their impact in the workplace. It was pretty interesting. Then we went to the last presentation before lunch.
Lunch was stuffed peppers and flank steak it wasn’t as good as yesterday. After lunch, we made our way the car and started the journey back to Pittsburgh. The trip home went smooth and quick.
When we arrived back to Robert Morris University, we dropped everyone off and then we met up with Drew so he could meet John at the rental car place. I was glad to see Drew. We drove John back to campus and then Drew and I went home. We talked about the conference and the plans for the evening. Even though I was pretty tired, I still wanted to go over his parents.
When we got home, we brought my stuff in and hung out for a bit, then went to his parents for dinner. His dad made cauliflower crust pizza, and we snacked on chips and guacamole. for some reason, I was so hungry, and so tired. I had so much fun at the conference and can’t wait go back and explore Marietta!
