Can I go to Balticon? It's a matter of time and energy: I can get a plane ticket with frequent-flier miles, and the hotel and con costs are doable.

But that week has:
--family gathering in south Georgia centered around a bank board meeting on Tuesday May 25
--eldest nephew graduates from high school in Durham, N.C. on Wednesday
--youngest nephew "graduates" from pre-K in Atlanta on Thursday
Looks like I'm skipping the first one no matter what, but will go to the next two. Also, I was supposed to be in Denver the whole week for work: I'm going to back out of that completely, if I can.

I'd need to fly out first thing Friday morning to get to the earliest con activities Friday afternoon. It's certainly physically possible, if I think I'm up for that much stress. And even though the con sounds like it's going to be a wonderful Bujold gathering, I'll be stressed.

I'm still debating...
