Thank God for plumbing! Without that, my husband wouldn’t have a family business to run, and without that, we wouldn’t have this amazing tripe to Mexico, sans children! As excited as I am to go, I am of course having major anxiety over leaving the girls. I have been away from them before, but not both of them, and not for this long. I know they will be in wonderful hands, as my parents and my in laws are splitting the time and staying at the house (so Ella won’t miss school), but still- I just feel guilty about disrupting their lives (both my parents, in laws, and my girls). I know all parties involved are thrilled to be able to spend time with Ella and Charlotte, but still! I am sure once I get there I won’t worry as much, and once I get a drink in my hand and a massage under my belt I will worry even less….its just the initial getting there that’s the hardest part!
You know what else is hard? Packing. Especially for a tropical trip this time of year. Of course I have dresses and whatnot but I want new ones, and this is so not the time of year to buy summer dresses. They are no where to be found. No where. I really don’t care for shopping this time of year anyway, because a lot of stores are in between season and the selection sucks, but I really despise shopping now because I can’t find anything cute for the trip! (ok I am exxagerating when I say I can’t find anything).
Anyway, when I travel (which is not often….don’t get the impression I am a jet setter or anything) one of the first outfits I plan out is what I am going to wear on the plane. I typically like to be comfortable and I also like to wear layers so I can take off and put on as needed. I always think it is a little more tricky when you are leaving twenty degree temps for eighty degree temps!
Have a great Monday….by the time you read this, I shall be relaxing, drinking, and most likely catching up on rest!
