My folks are paying for our airfare so that we could spend the holidays with them. My first reaction was "no". I felt excited about the possibility and embarrassed at the same time. We slept on it but the next day they went on and on about it again. They want us to be there for their housewarming (they built a new house to retire in) and to them, I think, it didn't feel right if the family was incomplete.
So there, we "scored" ourselves a free trip. While there, J and I will spend a few days in my favorite beach that has white powdery sand and music playing all day long. We'll drink and eat and swim and get tanned and have lots and lots of fun.
