Or maybe I should say Traveller's Remorse.
All weekend long we planned our Vegas trip.
Found our flights.
Picked a hotel.
Decided on some shows and must see's.
Even planned a potential blogger meet-up with Mrs. Brown.
All that we were waiting for to officially pull the trigger was our tax refund.
Well it showed up in our checking account yesterday and I immediately got buyer's remorse.
Sad considering I haven't even booked anything yet.
I know I said we were going to be all frivolous and spend the money on a much need vacay for my 30th....something I was supposed to do with my mom.
Well in the back of my mind is my mom's practical voice saying
"Should you really be spending that money on a trip???"
My car needs new tires. Our basement needs a wall and we haven't been able to use the shower in the master bathroom since July.
Sigh. I hate being all adult and practical, but I have a hard time splurging with so many things hanging over my head. The hubs says it's my choice in the end. It's my birthday and he knows how hard it's going to be without my mom. He even said if I didn't want to take the trip, I should buy the camera I've been lusting over. Tempting hun, but trading one frivolous purchase for another isn't really solving anything.
I know life is short, my mom is proof of that, and at the end of the day do I want to know I lived everyday to it's fullest.....or do I want to take the safe, practical route?
Oh what to do, what to do......
