Today I am mentally preparing myself for a weekend away. Now I have had plenty of weekends away from home without the kids, but all of them have included the company of my loving husband. This trip is different- on this trip I am getting on an airplane and flying to Las Vegas for a whirlwind weekend of fun in Sin City!
The usual trip to Las Vegas includes shopping for new "Vegas" clothes, a pedicure, a trip to see one of my favorite people in the whole World, David my hair guy, ironing, packing, unpacking, repacking, the list could go on forever. Oh- and teeth whitening, don't ask me why it all started about 4 years ago when Steve and I showed up at the airport and the first thing that Steve said to our friend Sara was "what did you do to your teeth? They are so white!" He liked them a lot!
So this weekend after about 5 months of planning and very little primping, myself and 3 girlfriends are leaving our families behind to have some fun without them. In all actuality, we have nothing planned other then where we will sleep (Trump Tower) and when we go home. This is why I am preparing mentally, I am afraid that I will have too much time on my hands to wonder (not worry) about what is going on at home, when I travel with Steve I don't seem to think about what is going on with the kids at home (horrible I know). Poor Steve doesn't have it that easy either, Jack has his first swim meet of the fall tomorrow night and he gets to take Abby with him.
In conclusion, I already miss my family and can't wait to get home on Sunday. Pretty pathetic since I haven't even left yet!
