It's going to be a busy time. I just went to a conference on Monday, went golfing for the company (love my job) today, have a vendor show tomorrow for an industry association, head to Charlotte tomorrow as well and stay until Tuesday to see the family, come back for a week then head to Sanibel Island, FL for the weekend (free night stay, thank you Marriott), then chill for another week before taking a full week off of work to watch the kids while Mommy heads to Las Vegas for a conference of her own.
Woooo I'm liable to miss something! Oh, and my birthday is on the 20th.
And I now know why kids are a drag. School. They won't let my kids off for extended periods of time without getting kicked out of the government funded Pre-K program (worth ~$150/week). Next year I'm going to max out my vacation at 5 weeks/year, plus 4 days personal, and like 6 holidays off. Kids are such a drag!
And lastly, a travel tip. Apparently Embassy Suites is one of the only chains that actually has bedrooms. As in, put the kids on the sofa bed and lock the bedroom door wink-wink kinda rooms. You can find others as a fluke, or pay for adjoining rooms, but I came up with nothing in my quest. Sucks, because I sorta aligned myself to Marriott. They don't seem to have an equivalent.
