A few weeks ago, we got back from another 2 1/2 week, cross-country road trip. We drove some 6700 miles, through 31 states, and we saw a lot of people. And just as I did two years ago when we took a similar trip, I'm asking myself the questions:
Was it irresponsible for us to take such a trip?
Should we be taking ANY trips?
What kind of business do we have spending $4K + on travel to anywhere when we're still trying to pay off our debt?
Was it worth it?
And with the exception of that last question (Yes. Yes, it was worth it), I don't know the answers. I do know that I don't regret the trip. At all. Experiences like that are too important to regret.
But the fact remains that once again, we made a choice that put our debt repayment on a temporary back burner. So maybe next year we don't take a vacation. Maybe we take a smaller one. Maybe we find a way to bring in even more money to get the debt paid off that much quicker. I don't know. I just know that it's making me tired, this big black cloud that too often feels like it's Never. Going. Away.
November is another month.
