Borneo, Again

The Big Project at work is getting more and more insane, and in coming weeks, I'll be here less and less. I'm going to try to keep blogging to stay as sane as possible for as long as possible, and I'm trying to finish NaComLeavMo because hey, I started, but no promises as to either. . .I expect that the next six months will be some of the most difficult of my life. Fun. I wish someone would wake me when it's over.

But since it looks like everything's a go on that front, it also means that Borneo is back on. I haven't told Terrific T yet, but I think we have to go to Central America. My analysis on this point is kind of pathetic. One, I've wanted to go for 14 years. Seriously, no one should go 14 years wanting to do something, and not do it already, unless they are incarcerated. Two, I don't have time to plan Borneo until it is literally time to leave, but since I've wanted to go to Central America for 14 years, I've planned the trip 84different times, and hence it's essentially planned. So, it wouldn't be any work to go there. I guess there's also a Three: the dollar is still doing okay there. Oh, and a Four: We have free airline tickets to C.A.

I think this is sort of unfair to Terrific T., because it's not even in his Top 3. But I think I've decided. Does that make me a bad wife? (Note: You must answer "No" to this question, because if you say "Yes," then the list of much WORSE transgressions against poor Terrific T. will mean that I am a truly awful wife, and you wouldn't really rain on my parade like that, would you?)

Pshaw. That doesn't make you a mean ol' wife. It makes you a wife. I mean, really, where would men be without us?
I think Central America sounds fantastic. When you get some time you'll have to share your 84 ideas on where to go and what to do.

It does not make you a bad wife. You should go on vacation where you want to go. I think Central America would be really neat. I think I am a little jealous. Good luck persuading the husband. I think you should go with the "It is already planned" argument. I know that might work on my husband.

No!!! You are NOT a terrible wife!! In my experience, there are things my Hubby hasn't wanted to do but once I dragged him along he was forced to admit he had a much better time than he thought.

Maybe once in Central America, it will move to his No.1. And I have to agree, after 14 years it is time to cross Central America off your list. Besides - you can't argue with free airline tickets!

Sounds great! I think most married men are used to the fact that we decide most things and oh, that we are never wrong! nclm

I don't know exactly where you'd want to go in CA, but it's really terrific. I went to Costa Rica a few years ago for a month, and it was the most amazing time. Great place if you like the outdoors, rainforests, etc. You will have an awesome time in either place! I'm jealous of your vacation. :o)

14 years is a long time. I say if the stars are all aligned to make it happen....you go, girl! Just be sure to post some pics so we can all be jealous.

Ooooooo... vacation. I say going anywhere is good. It's just the getting away that is important not so much where you go
