Oh, the difficult decision I face!
The Erudite Mom has long since been planning to be gone in June to spend a few weeks spending the Erudite sister in Hull, do some traveling in England, then swing to Norway for a few days to visit my brother. I was jealous, sure, but there is always time to travel, I've done my share of traveling, I was in Italy 3 years ago, etc. And plus, we have animals. Seven cats, a dog, two turtles, and a bearded dragon. Someone has to take care of the animals.
THEN, she said she was planning on going to Edinburgh. And Stonehenge.
Big, fat, whimper. NOW I want to go. Badly. A lot.
I would miss a half marathon and my chance to finish the Tour de Fit series put on by Change of Pace. And some Guild events. And now that I think about, Chuck signed up for that race just to do it with me. I can hardly back out. But...Edinburgh.
So it must be decided, do I throw financial caution to the winds for such a fabulous trip (though it would be a budget trip due to not having to get hotels or eat in restaurants and having a car in England)? Does mom find a student we can trust to take care of the animals (the dog can stay with my aunt, that one is easy)? Should I?
There are worse dilemmas to face. :)
