We are preparing to leave tomorrow and I have mixed emotions. I am super excited about going to the beach (you know this girl loves a beach), but I am sad to leave the kids. I KNOW they are in great hands and I am not worried at all about them…I am worried about ME! I am going to miss them! I told E I am just looking forward to resting…and I am…I really need it, but I know about day 4 I will be ready to see them again.
When I was young we went to Florida every year. I would always ask my Mom if she was excited and she would always tell me she’d be excited when we left. I never truly understood that until now. As a mother, there are so many responsibilities and you are too busy taking care of all of them to even get excited. So, the excitement is setting in and Mom I get it!
I also haven't forgotten how I traumatized Sawyer when AKG and I had our little beach getaway. I pray that this time will be different, but I’m not counting on it! That boy loves his Mommy! I know I will come back rested and rejuvenated and ready to be an even better Mommy.
Yesterday afternoon E called and asked me to go to Jonesboro with him to pick up a few things he needed for the trip. Okay, this never happens!!! So, I agreed and we made a quick trip. This was E’s first time in Turtle Creek Mall. We have been together for 12 years and I have only known E to go to the mall once in all of those years.
So, I think we are ready. We are packed and my parents are on their way. Our plane leaves at 7am so we will be leaving the Ridge by 4am. I am so grateful that our parents are so willing to help us. Thanks so much!!!
