    Sarah,

    Even though I am in VA, I have really considered going to the convention. I just can not make up my mind. I will be leaving the two little ones with their Dad (that is a scary thought) while I am away, so I don't know yet. His parents can help him if he needs something.

    It seems really exciting.. Who knows, you just might see me there...

    I went to the mid-year convention back in Novemeber when it was held right here in my city and I definitely decided that I want to go to the convention in April. However, I am unsure with all the threats now if I want to go for one and two I don't know how many other students are wanting to go. I keep asking them and they keep saying they are undecided. I am president of our school's chapter of the student nurse association. When you are going to another city/state it takes planning. It is not something you can really plan in a weeks time.

    Another thing is that I will be leaving my daughter behind for 5 days if I go and she is 5 years old and I have NEVER in her life been away from her for longer than 13 hours. I live with my parents and so she is use to them and I KNOW they will take REALLY, REALLY good care of her if I go. In fact they are STRONGLY encouraging me that I go. They told me you are a young single mom who has sacrificed a AWFUL lot. It is time you do something for yourself and they said I deserve it. So that made me feel a little better. However, I am still a little nervous about flying. My cousin told me that she thinks we are at risk everyday when we are driving in our cars. So, with all this said, I am still planning on going. They said it will be the best convention yet.
