Have You Ever....

...been so excited for a trip that it's all you think about all day long?

...feel excited about all the fun things you have to wear on your trip?

...feel so grateful to the people who are helping with your kids while you are away?

...crossed all your "i's" and dotted all your "t's" so that everything is in place while you're gone?

...turned into a nervous wreck a few days before leaving because you hate that thought of being away from your kids?

...convinced yourself that you'll probably die in some random snorkeling accident and never see your kids again?

...driven your husband crazy with all of your incessant worrying?





Me too.

Your kids are in great hands. Have a great trip. I'm sure your will. There are no bears there.

Mimi said...

Yes! To all of the above. Take a deep breath, know your children are loved and taken care of and ENJOY your vacation. All will be well when you return!!!

As for the great things to wear... There are skirts, very similar to your cabana skirt at Ann Taylor Loft right now for $20! They have black, brown, cream and white. I immediatly thought of you!!

Thanks for the kind comment on my blog! Coming from a true writer it is a huge compliment.

Will you pack me in your suitcase, please?

As we Sorenson' get set to embark on a 2 and a 1/2 week vacation of our own in 2 days I am having these exact same thoughts....minus leaving the kids behind....I am not ready for that yet. For that matter, I am not sure I'll ever be able to leave Elisabeth behind. Seriously. I haven't even left her with a sitter to go to a movie. She and I are connected at the hip.

Have a fun trip! I'll look forward to seeing your photos!

I WISH I was in your shoes with those same worries!!! JEALOUS!! Can't wait to see/hear about it when you get back!!

Kelly said...

I could have totally written that post. My thoughts exactly at this moment. All worries a side... It's going to be a most spectacular vacation friend!!

You're going to have such a great time...I'm a smidge jealous :)

Holy Target said...

No. I just become obsessed with my plane crashing during take off or landing... But, I didn't have magical flip-flops from Target to protect me. Heaven-sent, they will let no harm come to you.

Amy said...

Yes to all of those things. I am more than mildly obsessive when it comes to disaster scenarios, so I feel your pain. But you will have such a deep cleansing breath sort of vacation, that you will come back all new and shiny for your kids to play with. Have so much fun!

We missed you guys too, I'm such a dork for not going. Next time?

Annette Rose said...

I'm soooo jealous! You are going to have sooo much fun! Get a tan for me and have a blast!

Sarah said...

Hope your trip is awesome and you have a fantastic time away! Don't worry about a thing, it will all still be there when you get back. HA! Can't wait to hear about it when you're back in our neck of the woods.

Amy said...

Actually yes! Tomorrow Jeremy and I are leaving for a week completely kid free. I'm so excited and at the same time, I'm so worried! I've never left my baby overnight before and I hope he will be okay. Grandma is coming today to watch the kids, so I know they are in good hands, but ugh! I'm so worried!!!
