Right now though, my mood is one of frantic nervousness that we won't be ready to go. As usual, I have saved too much for today and my mind is spinning with all I have to do. I am also developing growing anxiety about leaving behind Brandon, Ben, Clara and The Man (aka husband and father extraordinaire) for 4 entire days. I guess that's natural though. It's typical of maternal pride to think no one can take care of our children quite as well as us.
So off I go! First to pack and clean and shop for the loves I am leaving behind. And then on a plane, to see others I love very much. Life is good.
See you Monday.
I don't have time to post about this, but it is weighing on my heart like a stone that while I am preparing to jet across the country for a vacation, Whymommy is dealing with a new diagnosis of breast cancer at age 34. Age 34. Please read Slouching Mom's post on the topic and because I know I am friends with many fierce, and faithful prayer warriors, I ask you to pray. And maybe drop her a line of support.
