Reason 1,839 Why My Parents Rock

I'd like to share yet another reason my parents rock. Ever since I heard there would be a one day health track associated with the Blog World / New Media Expo 2010 in Las Vegas I desperately wanted to go. I started brainstorming ways I could go on the smallest budget possible. Perhaps I could fly in Wednesday evening, go to the session on Thursday and fly home late Thursday night. Or even fly in and out on Thursday to save the cost of a hotel room completely.

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.
