Wants vs. Needs

I got a brochure in the mail two days ago for the New England Chapter RWA Conference and am eaten up by the desperate desire to attend.

My hero (heroine?) is a scheduled speaker - Jenny Crusie will be there and Bob, her new sidekick, will be there as well. I'm dying here.

Why?

Because, well... I like to eat, too. And have a roof over my head. And clothes for my family. I just spent a small fortune on glasses for me and for my poor, blind daughter. Even if I could find someone out there to share a room (anyone reading this going?? Wanna share a room? I don't snore -- though I am an early bird), I don't think I could swing the rest.

I have until February 9th to decide. Or to win the lotto.

Ohhhhh......that sounds great! You wouldn't have much travel expense, right? Just hotel and fee....

Maybe if you could pay the fee now, then scrimp for the hotel? It's supposed to be a really good conference.
