The Housewife's (mini) Vacation

Guess what I get to do? I get to go to California and visit my parents, my brother, and my uncle. And that's not all. I get to go......drum roll, please.........

ALONE!

I get to go alone! Yesssss! The husband has graciously offered to send me off for a weekend while he stays home with the kids.

What!?

Who?

When?

Where am I? The Twilight Zone (cue music)?

No? This is real life? Oh, okay then! I'll take it!

Between working 2 part-time jobs, taking care of the kids full time, and doing all my other regular wifely duties, I've gotten just a tad burned out. If you want to read about the episode the provoked the weekend away idea, read about it here. Yea. I'm not ashamed.

Anyway, I'm so excited I think I might pee my pants when I get on the plane. I'll have to remember to bring an extra pair of undies in my carry on! Three whole days of just ME. No meals to cook, no poopy diapers to change (Ava still likes to do that), no whining, screaming, fighting, biting, pinching or the constant "MOOOOMMMMMM!". I get to be in a house full of grown-ups, wine, and books. I get to sit and gossip with my mom uninterupted. Doesn't that sound lovely? Hells yes it does.

I know I will miss my hubby and kids the first hour I'm away, and I'll probably call them 20 times a day, but I'm still excited. If you want to read about my most recent trip to CA last June, go check out my vacation blogs.
