As I sit to write this I realize it must seem like I am often taking weekends away, but really, that isn’t the case. I go twice a year with some girlfriends and then my hubby and I travel sometimes. I’m sure this will all change once baby #2 makes his/her grand arrival at the end of the year.
I am (supposed to be) getting ready for my Girls Summer Weekend away in La Jolla. Last year at this same time I took Brett with me on the first night and then my husband came and picked her up and I stayed my first night away from her. I was a wreck! She was 6 months old and I had never spent a night away from her. I couldn’t stop crying as they pulled away and I was so grateful that my friend Anna was there to comfort me. I got up first thing the next morning and was out the door by 8am! I missed her so much!
I am leaving tomorrow morning but I am struggling with it because my daughter is running a fever and is very lethargic. She even went to bed early tonight. I guess I will wait and see how she does through the night and make a determination if a doctor visit is necessary. I’ll follow my instincts. I really want to see my girlfriends (a few who live as far away as Dallas) but I have to do the right thing for my daughter (and her daddy).
