Bag packed: no. Car packed: no. Babysitter arranged: yes. Snacks for 12 hour car drive bought: no. Been shopping and bought outfit for reunion dinner: um no. Well as you have gathered, I am very prepared for our trip up country this weekend!
Hubby and I are going to his high school reunion which is 12 hours drive away and we could fly but the prices of tickets at the moment are crazy so we are going to do the road trip thing and just go with the open road. It is however the first time in nearly 2 years that we will be going away alone for the weekend and while I can’t wait, I am a bit apprehensive.
Now in case you are wondering if I am crazy, let me explain. Hubby has been going away a lot recently on business and is often been gone two or more days and while I miss him terribly, there is a small little lady named Bella that pines for her daddy. She will wake up in the middle of the night to ask if he is there, even if he is home and when we leave in the mornings and he comes to say goodbye, sometimes it sounds like her little heart is broken as she holds onto him and sobs! But Mama has always been there to remind her that he is coming home tomorrow or in two sleepies and that he promises to bring sweeties etc. Now Mama is also going to be gone and Bella will stay with her granny until we get home. I can only imagine what is going to happen when we get back and what next week will hold for me in sleepless nights, constant check ups to see if I’m there and so forth! I am going to go with a positive attitude and enjoy this time “alone” with hubby. Bella’s Yaya (her granny that she named herself) also has a BB so I will send her videos and keep in touch with Bella. Can you tell that I am missing her already and that it might be Mama that misses her more?
