This post was (a) supposed to be about summing up my vacation [it was awesome, thanks!] and (b) looking forward financially, but instead it’s about Life Happening.
Specifically, I just emptied out the rest of my travel account to pay for last-minute plane tickets halfway across the country this weekend. My best friend is having a lot of complicated, scary stuff right now (don’t feel like I should share her story, but the summary is that everything will be ok, probably, but it’s really hard and scary right now) and I haven’t seen her in months and miss her, and I just think I need to. We decided to split the cost of the tickets, but my half came down to the rest of what was in my travel fund after the vacation was over. Oof! That’s quite a hit to the net worth. Worth it, though.
I have a ton of work stuff going on this week, plus now preparing to take this quick trip, but I really miss blogging on the regular and hope to get back to it on Friday — with that post about the financial results of vacation 🙂
