    I'm thrilled to hear you had a blast at CKU and not so thrilled that I wasn't there. I bet you are tied form all of the attention, talking and teaching. I know your family is glad to have you back. Like everyone else, I cannot wait to see what you have waiting for us.
    Where do I go to see a step by step way to make my very first digital page. I've ordered tons of things for digital SBing, but that is where it stops.
    Ali, how much do you charge for a weekend at my house to tutor me and dicuss how I need to organize my room!!! Bring Simon, I have nephews and a neice plus a pool. I think its worth your suggested retail value. Or, I could visit my grandhildren in woodburn and visit you for private tutoring at your fee. What do you think> all expenses paid.
    Rest, drink water, eat well and have some spa days.....
    Take care Sweetie,

    Hi Ali,
    I don't really scrapbook but I found your site one day and I actually read it for the similar sensibilities between us: meaningful quotes, politics, and life in general. I enjoy your blog and finding certain sites of great value such as TED and Zen Habits and I use them in my university teaching.
    I'm so glad to hear you were gone; as a sufferer from many miscarriages, I was holding my breath you were still with child.
    Great news! You were only out of town.
    Take it slow.
    All is well,
    A friend,

    Ahhhh isn't it great to be home and breathe! Relax and take care of yourself because before you know it you'll be changing diapers again and doing the midnight feeding thing again.

    Thanks so much for a fun and inspiring weekend! CKU was great and it was fantastic to meet you. My family loved the new album and I'm excited to set it out in the living room for some viewing. Your class totally rocked! If you decide to do some online classes while you're "nesting" I'm totally in. :)

    I bet it feels great to be at home and rest in your own bed. I recently read your post on your pregnancy. Can't tell you how happy I am for you, Chris, and Simon. I know everyone wants you to have a girl but I think Simon would LOVE a brother. Either way, it's all GREAT!

    It was so fun to meet you in person at CKU and to experience all of the wonderful classes. At the album class you mentioned you'd post your music list on iTunes. I'm looking forward to seeing it since it really helped make Saturday so relaxing!
    Thanks again
