I've been noodling this Friends For Life conference that's coming up in July. To say that I really want to go is like saying my last post was a little on the sad side.
With Mattias being so young, I don't think it's a good time to do the conference as a family. But I could totally do it by myself, right? I've talked to Fred and he pretty much has my bags packed already.
But I'm conflicted... I just noticed that FFL is 6 freaking days long. 6 days! 6! Did you know that I have never, ever, ever been away from my babies? Like, ever? And while I am all for getting away for a little bit... 6 days is long time for the uninitiated. I'm afraid that I would go, and then be like one of those kids who really misses their mommy while they're away at camp and has to be sent home early.
Yes, I really am that lame.
My other issue is that Canada also has a FFL conference. This year, it just happens to be in Vancouver. On my birthday. Have you ever been to Vancouver in August? It's like eating as much (insert favourite food here) as you want and never gaining any weight. Meaning, it's just about the best thing ever! Vancouver for my birthday? Yes, please!
Unfortunately, we are not wealthy... independently or otherwise, so doing both is not an option. If we were to go to Vancouver, it would be as a family. The Florida one would be just me flying solo.
What to do, what to do. What I want to know from you, dear people who live in my computer... who's going to FFL (Canadian or American)?
