When I was at their house recently we started talking about it and my parents asked me some general questions. Then my mom said, "Can I go with you?" I was like, "I can't even afford to go!" All of the sudden we were both going and staying for a few days. How awesome is that?! I'm a very, very luck person even when it doesn't always feel that way.
Of course this is something I consider sort of work related even though I don't make a living from this blog or my advocacy work, but it's also something I love. Add in the extra days to play around and spend time with my mom and you have the recipe for an awesome trip. I'll get to listen to ePatient Dave present a keynote address and attend a breakout session just for patient bloggers and get fliers for prostitutes on the strip. Who could ask for more?
PS: Don't worry, you won't catch me saying anything resembling what happens here stays here. It's so overused and annoying I want to rip my hair out.
