A Free Vacation

Today I was talking to a long time friend on the phone and I was told I can use their house down on the beach anytime I want. I had mentioned how depressing it can get staying inside all the time because of the rain and Tony stuck here anyways because of the cancer, all the treatment, surgery and recovery. I discussed my concerns and he told me work out what I need and go down even if for two or three days. Thinking real hard, should I stay or should I go?

Will Tony go with you. Would he be ok if you left and went alone. It does sound like fun for you.

No I cannot leave him alone, he is not to that point of recovery. He has family there too.

@andriaperry If Tony could go with you, then that can ease the stress and allow you two to relax a little.

You should go, may be only one week or 10 days, but it will be a good change both for you and Tony.

10 days! I am not sure I can put off things for 10 days, not even 7 days.

The decision is really up to you but based on what you wrote a short vacation would help you out.

Go! The ocean air will do you good. I love being by the lagoon all the time and the sea breeze is wonderful. Put you feel in the sand, wiggle your otes, and step into the cold ocean. This will do you a world of good.

It might be nice if both you and Tony could go, even if it's just for a few days. Hopefully, you can figure something out and make it work.

A free place to stay, that is good because that is the most expensive.

If I can get someone to take care of the animals for 4 days I may be able to swing it later this month.

I think you should go. It's free after all and you need a break badly. I would grab that opportunity if I were you.

maybe start by dropping and just staying for an hour, just to decompress, enjoy the view, the breeze, daydream or think things through, even nap. it's a thoughtful yet practical gesture.

I shouldn't butt in, but inside I am screaming, "She should go!" Then what I say aloud is "only she can decide what is right for her." But how wonderful to have the choice!
