I was having a tough weekend last weekend.
I decided I better stick the part-time job out to September 15 (why?) so that pushed my trip date back by almost two months, and I was upset about that. Then, in the wonderful way the universe works, I received a “flight alert” email just ten minutes later from Expedia letting me know that in May the price of flights from Vancouver to Roatan were back down to around $700 return (about the cheapest they ever get, and the same price as I paid when I went in February). My heart dropped and my brain went at a thousand miles an hour in an instant – if I’m pushing my trip back two months, could I go for a quick trip – maybe just for a week or so – back there in May? Or more importantly, should I?
I hemmed and hawed. Texted my closest friends (who are so dear to me for trying to understand this inexplicable addiction to a tiny island in the Caribbean that no one has heard of) and asked for their advice. Emailed my friends in Roatan and asked if they thought it was a good idea. Called my mom, as always (thank you mom for your excellent advice).

I will have much more to say on this subject in the next few days, including my tips for how I’ll make this trip dirt cheap since I have to somehow fit this in my budget now!
