So I am battling with the decision about going home to Utah this year for Christmas. Last year Paul and I spent a lovely Christmas in a cabin secluded in the middle of nowhere West Virginia and loved every bit of it. No expectations, no places to be, no big gifts or over commercialization. This year I know our families would really love it if we came home to spend the holidays with them. The problems I am dealing with are these...1. If we drive home it will take us 3 days just to get there and 3 days to get home, which means only 3 days home. Plus driving will cost like $800.
2. If we fly we have no car when we are home, plus it costs about $650 a ticket, plus we have to deal with the crazy holiday travel rush and annoying people.
3. If we stay here we save money, can work more, and do whatever we want (except go skiing which I really really really want to go do this Christmas break) and but we don't get to be with our family.
So what would you do if you were Paul and I? I am going to take a vote. Should we go home and if so should we fly cause I need to buy the tickets, or should we just stay here and piss off our family? Please vote and I want a sound argument as to why you think what you do. If no one votes then I guess I will just be more confused.
