so let’s do the math…
mr cs and i got engaged in august 2012. we immediately started hoarding our vacation time.
between march 2013 and now we attended:
- 4 weddings (including our own which took the most time)
- 2 graduations (sorta)
and on yeah, there’s that honeymoon in greece.
and here we are at the finish line. my work anniversary is in january; mr cs’s is in february. all that stands between us and schedule freedom is the holiday season.
i’m no stranger to the office on the wednesday before thanksgiving. in 2011 and 2012 i figured out that i could fly for less in the early hours of the morning on thursday.
but this year, we’re going to georgia, not virgina. and oh yeah we also bought elliot, my suba-boo. part of that deal was vowing to fly less frequently.
so factor all of that in and you can see where this is going. mr cs and i are driving to athens, georgia TONIGHT after we leave work. but this is no surprise; we knew exactly what deal we made when we decided to host a wedding in santa fe and honeymoon in greece. and there is a wonderful silver lining: TRADER JOES. we’re packing two coolers and all of the ice blocks we own.
i’m thinking it’s a fair trade. i might regret saying this at 1am tomorrow morning when we’re still on the road…
