Going Away


My friends, remember that peaceful and refreshed feeling I spoke of yesterday? Well, how quickly it disappears for a busy mom like me and probably many of you too!

Bear with me over the next few days as I prepare to leave my family and visit my sister to help with my new niece, Ellie.  My oldest son Luke has been running a fever for two days and is finally on the mends.  I still need to pack for my trip and make sure the house is in order and the fridge is stocked for my husband to play "Mr. Mom" for a few days.  I know he will do great but truthfully, I'm scared.  I'm very scared.

I have an abnormal amount of anxiety about leaving my family for four days.  I most likely need to see a therapist but there's no time!

Any other moms feel like this?


  1. I have anxiety about leaving my dogs with my husband for an extended period of time (no kids yet)...haha..So I can only imagine. What am I going to be like when we do have children! haha. I always remember though how much my husband loves all of us--so that comforts me knowing that he will do all he can to take care of us. : )

    As far as help....I would imagine lots of frozen (previously prepared by you) options for meals....that always helps a ton.

  2. Have a safe trip. I know your husband will handle all boys for those few days your sister needs you.

  3. I don't have kids, but I can only imagine how hard that must be having to leave them. I'm sure dad will do great though!
