Is it just me or does being a grown-up really suck??? BOO! >-p on you Grown-Up-Ness! Lately Kevin and I have basically accepted the fact that a vacation when he comes home really is not in the cards for us (when he gets home). =( Sadly this job market isn't helping us out at all! Well this is right in the forefront of my mind tonight because my entire family is going back to Jersey this summer and they were discussing plans tonight at my mother's. Taking Kevin to Jersey is something that I have really wanted to do, and it's something that I sort of have to do when someone other than my Gramma will be around (hence my mother, or aunt). I've been there too many times to count but not enough as an adult to figure out how to get myself from point A to point B. Not to mention merging onto the highway (in Jersey) causes me heart palpitations! It's seriously one of the most frightening things I've ever done in all my life! tee hee
You'll remember a few weeks ago I posted about whether or not to vacation at all and asked for your opinions. So tonight after listening to my family go back and forth on their plans and them telling me how much Gramma wants to meet Kevin and how her and Grandpa really aren't doing that well, ect ect ect. I came home and priced some things out and this is when I came to the conclusion that we could go but it would be seriously irresponsible. Hotel for 2 nights, plus airfare, plus some spending money, chipping in for the rental car and maybe some gas money it really would be hard for us. All of this is why being a grown up completely, without a doubt SUCKS!
Sorry hubs... we'll just vacation at home with a little picnic in the living room. =(
OOO.. yes I just about forgot to mention the timing of all of this. Buying tickets and committing to going (getting granny's hopes up) and what if they don't get home when they are expecting to? What if block leave doesn't start in time for this trip? Grrrrr. Today is a day that I am wishing life was easier- simpler; and that I was six-years-old still- again.
