Got my shiny new visa card today, so at least that won't be a cause for delaying the vacation.
Also got my tax return money, though it wasn't a huge amount, it was enough to make a difference. Threw it into my "savings" account, might buy an LCD monitor (or two) when I get back.
Or maybe a nice used bicycle. That would expand my range, giving me more opportunities for taking photos.
I was about to say "or a chair" but then I remembered I might be able to get a used one dirt cheap when my ex-boss sells off excess office furniture. So, bicycle or LCD monitor? Oddly enough, I'm leaning toward bicycle. An LCD would be useful year round, but still..
