I may not go on a vacation this year. At least, not a TRAVEL vacation. Nothing like the vacations that require air travel and hotel stays and...okay...days on the beach.
Instead, we are working on readying our house to go on the market next spring. We are moving to our house by a *major* lake next year after our youngest graduates from high school. We currently live in a century house in an historic district, and it's a beautiful home. But, it's nearly 120 years old. It needs a lot of updating. Instead of spending our money on a trip, we are spending our money responsibly, on updating our home to make it ready to sell.
I'm not giving up on the idea of a vacation, but realistically, it probably won't happen this year. If it does, it will be pretty last minute. With that in mind, I've been scouring the internet for awesome last minute travel deals, you know, "just in case." I found Last Minute Travel, which has great deal on traveling. This way, too, if I should happen to talk DH into a quick trip, I can get great deals immediately.
Oh my gosh, I just saw that being near the ocean makes us calm and relaxed. I completely agree with that. I think that's why I'm stressed. I need the ocean. Don't believe me? Read this article from The Washington Post! I'm serious! I need the beach! Maybe if I find a good deal, we can find the money. I think I should go research right now. Won't you come research with me?
