To Schmooze, or not to Schmooze...

For the past couple of weeks, I have been planning to go to a Chamber event tonight at a restaurant here in Daytona.

It's been on my home calendar, my work calendar, programmed into my phone, etcetera...  Yet, right now - less than an hour before it is to begin, I'm really not feelin' it.  I'm not much of a talker to begin with.  I don't steer clear of crowds, but I usually have back up in the form of my husband - who is always the life of the party... However, he is not going this evening.  Pity.

I'm still deciding, but it's not looking good!  =/

Maybe, if I knew better how to begin conversations and whatnot... Any thoughts on how to break out of my shell?  Maybe suggest a book or something?  I actually thought about looking into the local chapter of the Toastmasters, but I haven't been able to find much.  (However, I have not yet delved into the search!)

Sigh...  I guess we'll see where this goes!
