I can spend an entire month of Minnesota winter relaxing in paradise every year.
I think I've decided I want to take a two week trip every January. That's reasonable. And it doesn't have to literally be to the other side of the world. There are a lot of places I've never been. When I got back last year, I actually started planning exactly that for next January, January 2017. I'm thinking Colombia. It's less than $400 round trip for the airfare, which is almost $1,000 less than my last trip.
In the larger scheme, I think I'm going to start looking at living somewhere warmer. Now that I'm back to where I was a year ago, it seems reasonable to buy a car. But maybe I really just want to live somewhere with good mass transit. Somewhere the weather is bearable all year round. Life is too big to pidgin hole myself.
And lets not count out the Powerball. It's over a billion this week. : - )
