I had gotten tickets to go to a "convention" this coming weekend. The venue is about an hour drive (one way) for me and tonight I got an email informing me that parking at the venue is $10. Well, that put me off the Friday portion of the conference because $10 for parking for 2 days is sadly right out of the budget right now.
Ok, then I got to thinking about Saturday and the conference starts at 8AM which means I should leave home no later than 6:30AM , which means I am going to have to get up about 5AM... And I am just SO not a morning person.
Yes, this event would be a good networking opportunity...but there is a similar event in a couple of months closer to home. True, I am probably NOT going to score free tickets to that event and thus will probably not be able to attend but I am just less than enamoured with the idea of spending the gas money right now and then having to pay for parking and it's something geared towards Moms and perhaps not 100% appropriate for me.
Ugh... I hate having to make these decisions. I wish that I didn't have to decide things based on budget.
And completely unrelated... can someone PLEASE explain to me what preschool children are doing running around outside screaming at almost 1AM? No, I didn't think so. On that note, I'm going to bed.
