oh I don't know. A while back my darling parents sent out an email to their children wondering if perhaps anyone would be interested in visiting them on their mission before they come home. Now we all know I love to travel, so I checked it out. I threw up a little when I thought about a 13 hour flight in coach; then threw up a little more when I saw the prices for first class. That's about as far as it went. Until Saturday night. Matt was singing a little bit of "She's Like The Wind" to me as we drifted off to sleep, and I mentioned that it was really the beautiful, multi-talented, tragically cancerous Patrick Swayze who sang that delightful number on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. He didn't believe me, so we made a bet & all of a sudden I hear myself saying that if I'm right (which I of course am) I get to go to Taiwan to see my parents. Huh. Didn't even know I seriously even wanted to, but apparently I do. Granted Taiwan isn't up there with Africa, Ireland and Italy on my never ending list of places I want to go. Or Greece. Or Tahiti. Or Bail. Or Australia. Or Belize. Moving on. But having a whole week with my parents all to myself before the craziness of them being home? Seeing these two darling but not exactly world-traveling people out in the REAL world??? That alone would be worth it. Even to see my Dad trying to stomach some of the funky food they have there would be totally worth it. This is pretty much a once in a lifetime shot. I'm sure that if I don't take this chance, their next mission will be to like, Ohio or somewhere.
So why am I having such a hard time committing to it?
it's a lot of money/skymiles points but I'm sure it would totally be worth every single one. What do you think? Should I go? Kinda want to save up all my pennies & take my darling, patient, sweet, jewel of a husband on a golf trip somewhere. It doesn't seem fair that I would leave him & Sawyer at home in the snow while I go play with Grandma & Grandpa in 90 degree weather. I am a very lucky girl to even be contemplating this prospect though.
