I cannot believe I’m writing this

I think, perhaps, I may be having what some term a “first world problem”, it’s completely ridiculous and I will freely admit that I need to suck in my lower lip and stop my right eyelid from twitching but at the moment, indulge me.
It’s my damn blog after all.

I kind of resent the new car.

Yea, I said it, I kind of resent the shiny red new-to-us WRX that Craig adores, that I do really quite like, and that is the result of many many years of consultation about what cars we could both stomach because my car choices tend to look like they come from a 1950s cartoon and Craig’s look like they come from a 2020s manga.
But still, I resent the car just the tiniest little smidge and want to know why?
(This is the kicker.)

Because spending the money to buy the car means that we can no longer go to Hawaii in July.

We had been planning to go back ever since, well, ever since we were in Hawaii in 2008, to celebrate our 10 years as a couple anniversary.
We can probably still swing a week on an island in the South Pacific and thousands of people would kill for that kind of holiday. But I really really liked Hawaii – I think mainly because I expected to NOT like it – and I had been looking forward to going back ever since we left with salt in our hair and sand in our shoes and as such my right eyelid twitches ever so slightly when I look at darling Rexy*.
But I will suck in my lower lip. And get the fuck over it. Because seriously?

It’s such a First World Problem.

And I kind of make myself sick.

* This might be due to the OMG SO RED colour scheme. But probably not.

    Nah, you're not a crazy person. Think of the alternatives… what was it that you liked most about Hawaii? Find out and then go to an island that specialises in that… Being a first world brat myself I can tell you that the snorkeling in New Caledonia is phenomenal (Hawaii gave me a moray eel, Noumea gave me a hundred baby turtles). The Yasawa islands of Fiji offer that raw-middle-of-nowhere peace, while my parents are going to Vanuatu soon to look at the active volcano. Options, see! However if you were really into ABC stores and macadamias, you're outta luck. Sorry.
