Well, my flight is now booked. I’ll be flying DFW to Brussels to Venice, and coming home Barcelona to New York to DFW. Between the flight and the cruise, I bet I see 20 cities on my trip. That part is exciting.
Unfortunately, I may have to sell a kidney to pay for it. Because of the mix-up with my frequent flier miles, I had to pay FULL PRICE. Gulp. Maybe I should get a part-time job. Or find a rich, unsuspecting man to marry between now and then. Nah, maybe I’ll just stop eating out so much. (this reminds me of my favorite first line of any book… the first line of Pride & Prejudice… you should look it up, and you’ll love it too).
Spending $1500 very unexpectedly kind of stressed me out (let’s just say I was very close to hugging the toilet), so I went for a long run at the park tonight with a friend. We ran for a little over an hour–we’re not sure how far we went, but I’m estimating it was about six miles. I’m still planning on running that half-marathon in December, so this was a good step in the right direction!
All of that running made the expensive ticket seem a lot less important. I think I’m just too tired to care!
