Sick with a side of whine

I don't know why but I'm feeling like crap today. I'm exhausted, I've got a headache, and my stomach is queasy. I hope I didn't catch anything while I was away.

I'd thought about going to Toronto on Thursday for the Society for North American Goldsmiths conference - it's for metalsmiths in North America and it's held in different cities each year. Having it practically in my own backyard is an opportunity that's almost too good to miss. However, the conference goes from 8:30am to 5pm which means that I'd need to be awake at 5am and wouldn't get home until 9pm.... and I'm not sure I'm up for that.

If I hadn't been away last week or I wasn't feeling quite so sick today, I think I could probably do the conference without exhausting myself too much. However, I'm worried that if I do push myself to go, I'll end up even more exhausted and it'll end up taking days or weeks to recover.

But I really wanted to go. It's a little frustrating to run smack into my limitations. The grown-up thing to do is to accept that I have limitations and not go to the conference on Thursday. Sigh. I can travel to the conference another year.
