Tomorrow (Saturday, Feb. 27) is the Surviving and Thriving meet-up at the North Point Mall food court in Alpharetta, Ga. I’ll be hanging out there with my laptop from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
But I’ll definitely put it aside if you drop by — and since I don’t have a smartphone to stare at you’ll have my undivided attention. No checking e-mail or tweeting about the soft pretzels. I promise.
What will we talk about? That’s up to you.
Money? Writing? Our kids? Frugality? Lifeitsownself? As previously noted, our choice of topics is limited only by our imaginations and the fact that this is a public venue.
I’m looking forward to meeting people whose names (or user names) are familiar to me from the Comments section. Lurkers are also welcome, of course.
To those who’ve never been south of the Mason-Dixon line, I can tell you that the hospitality down here is real. I’ve had a swell time with my hostess, Beverly Harzog, who has provided supremely comfortable accommodations, an adorable Maltese to spoil and a trip to a diner that’s as good as those in New Jersey. Since that diner is just past the North Point Mall, I now know that the traffic isn’t nearly as bad as I’d been led to believe.
Hope to see you there on Saturday.
