    Oops, I voted wrong.  I meant to vote Go, not Stay!  It sounds like you need a vacation!  You have the money, and you’ve been under a lot of stress.  Go, relax, and have a great time!

    I wouldn’t go.  You need to save the money in case the house doesn’t sell and you need to keep paying the mortgage for longer than you expect.

    I think you should go. It sounds like you need the vacation horribly, and you’ll be able to step away from reality and hopefully relax. The only thing is, if you do go, you cant feel guilty during the trip or after, guilt will just add to the mix. GO GO GO!!!Smile

    Think of it as an investment in your and your family’s collective sanity. Go.

    I voted Go, but with a few caveats: 

    – When you say you have the money— do you mean you have the money for the plane ticket but if you buy the plane ticket it may cause financial problems in the future? Or do you mean you really have more than enough money for everything but it just seems frivolous to spend on vacation when you’re spending on so many other things? If there is a chance this is going to cause a financial hardship in a few months w/ the mortgage or having to buy new appliances, that is just going to cause MORE stress so I say stay. But if you know you can definitely afford everything and you’re just having spending-money guilt (i do! i always make my husband click the “buy” button when we book vacations haha) I say GO. 

    – What does your husband say? If he doesn’t want  you to go/it might cause stress there I say don’t go because you need his full support right now. But if he is okay or encouraging you to go, I say GO. 


    You need to relax and have some fun right now 🙂

    I say go and enjoy yourself.. Who cares what others think.. You really need to take care of you and your feelings as well especially after a death so significant to you! I just recommend that when you do go do not spend over a set amount that is acceptable for you to still be able to get by with your other obligations

    @Soon2B_MrsS:  Yea I would totally go then. You sound like me! It’s never that we don’t have the money for ______ (<– insert thing i want/want to do) its that I’m like welllll do I want to take that out of savings when it isn’t NECESSARY? and then mostly I don’t because I’m cheap. But sometimes you just need to let loose. Sounds like a fun 30th birthday trip!

    i said go but it depends how much money you have and how much it costs and if you’ll physically be able to pay for the other stuff.  A vacation sounds amazing! I need one myself!

    Go!  Sounds like you could use a vacation and it won’t cause any sort of financial hardship!
