Last week we drove from the Vancouver, BC area to San Jose for Silicon Valley Comic Con. We left on Wednesday stayed one night in Ashland, Oregon before a weekend of nerdiness. We returned home by leaving at 05:30 on Monday to make it home by 8:30pm the same night. We only have a couple of nights at home…
And we are leaving again tomorrow morning at 08:00 to drive through the Rocky Mountains and into Calgary, Alberta. We are going to drive straight through and should be there by 8:00pm the same day. Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo is a four day event beginning Thursday. It’s a hard go, but a lot of fun.
It’s even harder go to have a day and a half in between traveling. I’m on vacation from my regular job and when we return from Calgary, I’ll have six days of recovery. My wife isn’t as lucky. Her business is always on. She is constantly working. Even while selling at these shows, she is often sneaking off to email correspond with online questions. Her business is her pride and joy and she takes it very seriously.
My wife also has ups and downs but can’t just leave it in the office. Her studio is only steps away from the side door of our home. She doesn’t get to go on vacation as easily as myself. But when I’m on vacation and traveling with her- I like to think that I’m alleviating some of her work load.
And I get to hit conventions! Have I mentioned how much I enjoy those?
