It's funny how I "rationalize" reasons for not going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. First, I say it's the money. No doubt, it costs over $200 in gas alone to get down there. Well, it's always about the money, really.... I've got places to stay, so I don't have to worry about that. But going to New Orleans anytime will cost me almost $500. That's lots of money during a time when we're trying to save money and pay off bills.
So, I'll live my Mardi Gras experience once again vicariously through my friends' instagrams, facebook posts, and other social media.
I will make it home next year. I know I will....
Its All Good!
