Summer Plans

I had planned on going to E3 in LA this summer. I missed last year, and I really really REALLY want to get back to LA for an event. But, about a month ago when I started looking at my time off, and the FMLA available for Adoption and Foster Care, I realized that any time I take off is going to be unpaid -- unless I have vacation days left. So, since E3 is basically an entire week for me (with press events Monday and Tuesday), I had to say no again this year.

However, Matt and I will still be going to GenCon in August, and I've already made plans to attend PAX Prime in Seattle at the end of August as well. These two trips equal the same amount of time off as E3, but it's spaced out (a little) and I'll feel better about my time available if I need to be home to care for a kid.

Hopefully, I'll be able to squeeze a weekend trip or two in over the summer -- but mostly, I'm just hoping Matt and I finally get called about kids sometime soon. I think that alone would make for good summer plans, especially if we're talking adoption. For an older kid (school aged, I mean) we'd have a lot of time during the summer to get acquainted before having to settle into a school routine for the fall.</p>

Psyched about seeing you for PAX again. No drama this year.

I am insanely jealous that you even have the option of attending E3. It's one of my dreams to do that someday.

Best of luck with any impending kid news!

We need to plan something concrete when you're out here for PAX Prime, this time!
