Indecision

The Marshmallow has an opportunity to go to Hawaii very soon for work for about a month. We've talked for a long time about going there together so we were both sort of bummed when we found out he'd be going and I wouldn't be able to go along because of the nature of the trip.

But, then we started thinking that maybe I could fly down for an extended weekend or something (without the kids!!!). I found some great airfare which really can't be beat but I just can't decide.

We have our summer vacation planned and I'm saving for that and really shouldn't justify spending the extra money on an ancillary trip like this - but there's hardly a better opportunity and I'd really not spend much more than the airfare. I just don't know what to do.

The responsible side says to stay home, buckle down and save the money for the fam trip. But the frivolous girl who always wanted to go to Hawaii with The Marshmallow says "what the heck".

I'll probably go because we all know I'm far less responsible than I like to be. I'm excited! 4 days with The Marshmallow will be just like before kids!

Husband and wife trips with out the kids are so important and good for keeping the relationship strong. I'd go if it were me. I'd not be able to refrain from the deal...only have to cover airfare. Plus, I've never been. Go Amy, GO!

You should do it!! It is important to spend time with the marshmellow. You will have an amazing time. Sounds like it will be pretty cheap also. You have to go!!! You need it!!

You should definitely go! That is like a dream opportunity. Life is too short. I am learning that. Time without kids is SO necessary and priceless. Enjoy Hawaii for me. It is my favorite place EVER.
