Damn You Conscience...
So, know how I said that I wouldn’t be going on a vacation until my Philippines trip in March 2012? Well, it turns out that I lied - maybe. I know. I know – liar, liar, pants on fire….
BUT in my defense – I’m only thinking about going away because I'm getting an awesome deal on flights. I still can’t technically afford to go, but I’ll figure that out later. As a bonus, we are going over J’s birthday in December, so that means I won’t have to buy him a present – considering the trip will double as his present.
We are considering asking J’s parents if they want to go with us. This decision goes against both of our better judgments; however I’m not sure if the trip will be worse than the “guilt trip” they send us on every time we tell them were going away….
J’s mother’s famous line: ”Hmmm, it must be nice to travel. We just don’t have the experience to travel on our own. It would be nice if someone would offer to take us with them. Maybe it will happen before we are too old to travel or die – whichever comes first. *sigh*”
J has no problem ignoring her, but I can’t – I have a conscience. Only time will tell if I cave in and ask them to join us.
I cannot possibly face another winter without a getaway, but I’m not sure if there’s enough alcohol on the island to keep me tipsy enough to tolerate a week with J’s parents. Don’t get me wrong - I do love them to death, but maybe not after a week with them.
