1st world probs

Ummm, kay…. I just booked an entire trip to Maui online.  The thing is I don’t have an active credit card to pay, so when I get to the payment part ..I bail. I just do it to find the best flight deals and times and places to stay. I do it for the thrill, like we are really going. BUT we are not. I am weird. I know. Don’t be like me. Most people aren’t. Which is good. Thank God. I need a reality check. pronto.

I am a big baby. It was a good year. A brilliant year in fact. Paris, Rome, Savary Island, Big Bar Ranch.Year before that NYC, Mexico…. etc, etc. Sigh….. But that was last year. Sob.  Maybe it is the crappy weather. Maybe it is the fact that everyone I know is either skiing, on a Caribbean beach, or trampling round a cosmopolitan city and I am here. In the grey. In my chair. I AM A BIG BABY! Waaaaaaa….

Things could be worse. Think positive, things can always be worse. Did I really just say that?  Like I said, 1st world problems. Maybe it is because I am a free spirit, a nomad at heart, a wander~luster.  I crave adventure. Don’t we all…..?Maybe it is because I am a baby, a spoiled brat! Did I just say that again? It is true. Just be happy, if in fact you are still with me here after all this dribble, that you aren’t my husband. He has plugged his ears and  listened and at the same time  tuned me out with a glazed look on his face while I go on and on and on about the fact that there are no travel plans in the fore coming year. Well, until I finally twist his arm…..he he he… I guess booking trips online will have to do until then. Maui today, maybe Thailand or Africa tomorrow, France the next day.   nomad
