I really could use a change of scenery. Last year, we went to Hilton Head, South Carolina for a long weekend and had a nice time. I’d like to visit Charleston before we go to Texas. I’d also like to go to Barkwells, which is a very cool dog friendly resort near Asheville, North Carolina. My husband and I went to Asheville for our 8th wedding anniversary and had a great time. It’s beautiful there and it’s a great beer and art town. In fact, I’d love to settle there when we’re done with all the Army bullshit. If we went to Barkwells, we could avoid having to board our pooches.
But since we have this big trip to Europe coming up in May, our income is not so liquid right now. We also have to do the taxes and may owe this year, since I made some money with my writing. Not a lot of money, mind you… but enough that the IRS will know about it.
I’d also like to take another trip to Myrtle Beach, off season. The beach is great when the crowds are low and Myrtle Beach is not far from where we live.
I think it’s time to start planning something. I know we will have to go to San Antonio at some point to find a place to live, then we will have the big road trip down there. But I need something else and SOON.
Something tells me I’m going to miss the southeast a bit. It really is home. But Texas is fun too, I guess… as long as you don’t murder anyone and end up on death row.
What’ll it be? The mountains or the beach?
