Dream Vacation

Some people may find this bizarre, but I found my dream (adventure) vacation via a LivingSocial email the other day. It’s a 6-day trip to Moab, Utah where I’d be hiking, mountain biking, ATV-ing and learning to rock climb. It’s the kind of vacation where I’d be out in the middle of beautiful country, with what I can only assume to be little-to-no access to internet/phone. Just me, the other folks on trip, the scenery and open sky.

It was the kind of thing where the more I read, the more convinced I became that I needed to go. Not only was the agenda awesome, the price was great too – and it included all food, gear, etc. I wasn’t sure how I could come up with $950 (plus airfare), but the wheels were turning… I was determined this was what I needed to do.

Fast forward 24 hours later. I check my (snail) mailbox and see I’ve received another doctor bill for Leo’s surgery to the tune of $950. Crap.

So now what do I do?

Honestly. At this point, I’m not sure… My rationale, responsible side says the bill in the mail was a sign and that getting it paid off needs to be my top priority. But my heart is still telling me to try to find a way to make it work. I’ve got 5 days left before the deal expires and the trip goes back to $1,900.

So I’m currently evaluating and thinking, thinking and evaluating. What does a trip of my lifetime worth…? Well, I think it’s time to start selling some paintings. While my inventory is pretty low, the paintings I’ve kept are what I consider my best. So if you’ve considered buying one of my pieces, or have any interest in finding out what I’ve got available, shoot me an email. Make me an offer. I’m willing to negotiate.
