I, too, have put of going to a celebration event after considering the cost against quality time spent with the person, and then opted for a special one-on-one visit instead. Please check out the video at the end of this post.
A friend of mine in another state is having her 60th birthday party and sent me an e-vite. It’s an important year for all of us turning 60. It’s a sort of road map that says: “Two-thirds of the way done…” There was an excellent deal on air fares and I searched thru, thinking I would like to honor my friend by attending her party. Just before I hit “book it,” I pulled my hand back to sleep on the decision. Hey, the sale was good thru the next day.
When I woke up, I thought again of booking the $150.00 flight, the hotel, and arranging for my dog and cat to be cared for – a trip of Friday thru Sunday for about $500-$600 and I would spend approximately an hour with my friend, sharing her with other friends gathered to celebrate her… Another cup of coffee was needed.
