“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

I will return to writing this blog, I promise.

But in the meantime,  I will share with you my moment of fiscal insanity.  I am fairly rolling in glee of my financial irresponsibility.

In the full knowledge that I have about $1500 of medical bills coming up, I have CHARGED, on my CREDIT CARD, $1000 worth of plane tickets to St. Maarten.

I have a passport.

I have plane tickets.

I am going.  If the proverbial FLOOD happens, I will pitch the plane tickets and take the Ark, but I am GOING on the trip to St. Maarten that my husband and I have been planning for almost two years.

Because if I have to face reconstructive knee surgery with 6-9 months of painful rehab and no contact sports until 2010 without SOMETHING to look forward to, I will be looking for bridges to jump off of before the year is over.

It’s cheaper than long-term therapy, I reckon.

    Yay! Definitely cheaper than therapy. And more effective I’m betting, with tastier drinks, better view, better company, the list goes on and on . . .
