We never got into the site to get a ticket for the Women’s Conference! Three of us tried separately at 9 am and patiently awaited the magical moment when the auto-refreshed screen would tell us our place in the queue but none of us got into the queue! By the time I noticed my url was dead (and so was Leslie’s) and I went to another computer to try again at 9:50 am, the Main Event (Tuesday) was already completely sold out!
So we are signed up one more year for Monday only. Guess we’ll reserve the conference room for the webcast again. I’m actually not as upset as I was last year about not getting tickets because the webcast option is excellent. We still get the main stage presentations even if we don’t get to choose the side sessions that get televised.
It looks like they tried their best not to overrun the servers by shutting down the rest of the site (the links and all) but I bet they still were swamped given what happened to us…. oh, well….

Hey, cool! I’m in the picture of participants for the Day of Transformation at last year’s Women’s Conference. I hope to be one of the lucky ones tomorrow to get in to the Women’s Conference site to get tickets for this year’s conference. Even though it is shortly after our wedding, I want to attend. Every year that I was able to participate has been so totally awesome! The speakers are always so insightful and totally special people! The webcast was so good last year that I will still look forward to that if I am not able to get tickets for the main day.
I feel lucky, though, because the theme is the same as our wedding theme: “It’s Time!” Also used frequently are the good words about nurturing Mind, Body and Spirit – and Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too won the Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit category of the International Book Awards and was a finalist in the Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit category of the National Best Books 2009 awards. It feels like a good omen for success!
