There is a big part of me that wants to book this 4 day Bahamas Disney cruise as a gift to myself for finishing this particularly difficult semester that departs April 14...it's a four day'er. Not long but a break from reality would be very welcome after this semester. I'll be done with classes on April 11...last lecture and assignment due (I'm working on a PhD.) Qualifying exam is June 4,5,6...the same week I was supposed to go to Texas with the hubs for our nephews high school graduation. Jason also has to go to NCO Academy sometime soon after returning. Another 6 weeks away. We have the money. More than enough actually. The one good thing about deployments is that we can save a good chunk of money. Plus with our little tax deduction we're getting a good return this year. What do I do? I think if I go it might piss Jason off. But I need something to break me out of my rut right now and he cannot guarantee me a vacation again this year because of military obligations. I start working on my dissertation after my Qualifying Exam and I'm worried that if I don't get a little break now I'll be going non-stop for another 1 1/2 to 2 years without even a little vacation. Needless to say after what seems like an endless deployment, working full time, going to school full time and taking care of three dogs and a baby I'm a little burned out and no one seems to get that I would very much like to veg out for awhile. Lilly would go with me. She did great at Disneyland so a cruise seems like no worries for me. But like I said I'm so indecisive right now I need some advice.
