Need to answer some questions:
* Can you trust him while you're gone? Or will you just worry?
* Would some time apart help relax you?
* Are you getting traction on your R, or just spinning your wheels?
* What will he be doing?
* Can you stay in communication? Can you work on the M while you're apart?
* Would a change of plans be hard on the kids?
* What would you rather do (go or stay)?
