After tehblackbirdisrunning posted about it, I signed up for Mint. Now, I’m totally obsessed with paying off my debt and saving more money. I’ve got my budget all set for next month, so I don’t run out of cash with a week ‘til pay day, like I normally do.

Oh man! I am sorry to hear this. :( I really want to go to Kyoto and Seoul, but those are sunny suggestions. How about Nova Scotia? Prince Edward Island?
Ooh, Kyoto and Seoul! Those are quite adventurous! I’ll be all better and can handle sun exposure in about a month, so by the time I’m taking this hypothetical trip, I’ll just wear a hat and take my meds. Hopefully, no problems there.
I’ve always wanted to go to Canada. hotjuliachildinthecity had a great time in Squamish this year, which is serously tempting.

Oh, love, this sucks, I am so sorry! Have you considered Iceland? (Norway is hella expensive once you get there, fyi.)
Ooh, Iceland! That’s a good one. On of my colleagues went earlier this year and said it was beautiful, but she found the food sort of weird (whale, horse, etc.). I’m game for weird good, though!
I have been dream-planning a trip to Sicily forEVEr. If you love fantasy vacation planning, omg. Check out Syracuse in particular. I found a place in the old town on airbnb and I want to go there so bad.
Sicily sounds so fun. AirBNB is my fave for booking international lodging. I don’t love staying in hotels (they all look the same on the inside), and I love having access to a kitchen for my breakfast and to save meal leftovers in a fridge.

I went to Ireland 2 years ago and absolutely LOVED IT. It was sunny every single day; the taxi drivers kept commenting on the good weather, and my joke was that I brought the sun over from California, but that unfortunately I would take it back with me when I left. I seriously had the best time there and would absolutely recommend it. If anyone’s in to “creepy” stuff, the Dublin Natural History museum has “bog people" on display. So wonderfully strange and really makes history seem more relevant as "these are the people that history happened to."
The thing I’m sad about with this bell’s palsy stuff is that I’m not going to go to Hawaii. As this is shingles-induced and my shingles are most activated by sun exposure, lack of sleep, and too much alcohol (which Hawaii will include all three of those in large amounts), it’s best if I stay home. Mr. Animaux is going to go, which I fully support. I told him his “job” while in Hawaii is to have lots of fun and bring my home a small present.
Oh well. Missing this Hawaii trip is giving me inspiration for where I want to travel next year. I’m currently thinking of a few places:
- Oslo (has the cheapest flights of all the places I’ve investigated so far)
- Palma de Mallorca (I loved going to Spain last year and a colleague goes to Mallorca every year, so it must be great)
- Sardinia (same reasons as Mallorca)
- Costa Rica (my dad went several years ago and had a great time)
I’m also open to any suggestions you have. As long as it’s outside of North America and requires a passport, I’m open to it.

Oh no! I had temporary facial paralysis once but it was from botox. Very vain. Feel better!
Thanks, bb! The doctor called this morning to check on me, and I’m happy to report that I’m already feeling better. My symptoms haven’t improved noticeably, but knowing what I’ve got and that it gets better in less than 10 days is a huge relief.
When you described it I thought it sounded like bells palsy. My sister got it really terribly from lyme disease.
Ah, I didn’t know you could also get it from lyme disease! That was a good warning for when the doctor called me this morning and asked if I had any recent tick bits. To which I replied, “No, I’m an indoor kid.” Preferring air-conditioning to the sun has its benefits!
