We could manage a long weekend away - rather DS and I could. DH could only come for one night. So the decision becomes do we do a really, really quick trip (it's a 3-4 hour drive one-way). Or do we leave DH at home and I handle all the medical equipment DS requires on my own. Or do we skip it all together?
The trip would cost us the gas to get there and back. Otherwise, it's all expenses paid. But the price of gas is no small matter. And the week after this potential trip, the whole family will be heading to Florida for a week to attend a medical conference related to DS's illness. That trip was basically a Christmas gift from both our sets of parents, but we need to factor in the price of gas there, too.
Wouldn't it be nice to just pack up and go on a moment's notice? That's where I want to be at the end of this debt journey.
