My company is in FL, I work from home in NY. There are a few other employees in NY. My company has offered to fly us all there (not spouses or children) for their XMas party (will probably be a dinner at a nice restaraunt), and to take part in their new art gallery show. I believe most, if not all, the other NY employees have decided not to go, due to health and the timing (mid Dec). Everyone went last year, and we all had a good time, but ended up being stuck an extra day in FL (oh, the horror!) due to the big snowstorm. I love FL (but I love WDW more), and was looking forward to this trip. Due to most of the NY'ers backing out, my boss mentioned something (not to me) about his maybe coming here and having a luncheon for all of us instead. As far as I know, he will still pay for my plane fare if I want to go there. I don't know if he will get me a room or ask me to stay at one of my FL coworker's homes.... I am torn because I would be leaving my DH and DD2 (other DDs would be spending the weekend at their dad's regardless), and I might still have to spend some time in the office Fri. I would not have a rental car, and would probably have to pay for most of my own meals, except the party. So, the draws would be to 1) be in the state I love, and 2) see my coworkers/friends. Do you think it is worth going?
