Maybe we can at least talk on the phone or via email for a few minutes. :) Guess what, I may be going to NECC too. Sorry that we have both been so busy to talk. :) We are still teaching/in meetings at work until June 15th and the schedule has been CRAZY. I think I gave you my number. Feel free to call anytime!!
Are you going to NECC? I am hoping it will work out but am still looking into it to see if I can make it. I so want to go and learn there. Unfortunately, Friday is best for me, but not for you. :) I can always talk on the phone or chat in skype or google chat tomorrow. Are you on twitter? Just joined last week. dobrien917
