Thanks everyone! Your input really does help me to put things into perspective. And they've also given me some ideas that has made the decision easier to make. I do need a vacation. I know this. But... as much as I need it, I also need to make sure the more important things are taken care of first.
So... I'm going to pass this opportunity by. But, I am going to allow myself to take some sort of vacation this year. Just a less expensive one.
And as much as I love my son, I really need a vacation away from everything. But I doubt I'd be able to stay away for an entire week. Hell, I miss him like crazy when he's only gone for two days to his mother's.
So, I'm thinking some sort of a camping/road trip would suffice. Maybe I'll take my son out west for a father/son vacation for a few days and then bring him back home and spend a few days on my own or with a few friends, camping.
In any case, thanks for all the suggestions and advice. You guys are great!
Lady Lee, don't think your advice is going to waste. I do intend to go on a cruise at some point in the near future and you have actually answered some questions that I had before this offer came up. Thank you so much!
