Bye bye honeymoon?

It looks like due to financial reasons, we're going to have to cancel our honeymoon. Like a lot of people in America, we've had a tough year financially. I'm still underemployed, with just writing, editing, and game design monies coming in...and there's not a lot of that. My unemployment ran out months ago, and I still haven't found work. On top of that, we've had a lot of unexpected expenses come up. Both of the girls have been to the doctor more this year than in previous years. It's never been anything serious, but the bills do add up...even with insurance, plus Rebecca's health has been far from great. On top of that, last week we had to get glasses for the oldest, and our insurance saved us a whopping $30...which means they were pretty expensive. And of course, earlier in the year we had all of the cat drama. Poor K.J. passed away, and we had to get his remains back, and at the same time, we had all the vet expenses of saving Mosi. All of these things added up to well over $1,000, and that pretty much tapped out our reserves.

A few people on Facebook have suggested setting up registries or asking for donations. Unfortunately, we only have three weeks left, and I don't think there would be enough time for us to get the money we need. Plus, I've always been the type of person who is very uncomfortable with the idea of asking for help. If it was something serious, then maybe, but this is just a honeymoon, so we may just have to say goodbye to our trip to Taos...
