So, I'm thinking of going to this conference that I learned about on Matt Logelin's site.
It's pricey, but sounds like it would be awesome. Not sure if I'll be ready to leave my kids for three days, though... Although I don't have a fear of my death anymore (Matt cured me), I fear leaving my kids without a mother and traumatizing them further should anything happen while I'm in route. Realistically, I know anything could happen whether I travel or not (hell - I could bite it on my way to work for all I know, or from an unforeseen blood clot), so I shouldn't worry so much about a three day, much needed trip by myself... right?
