Guess what?? In 9 days I will be in San Diego. I get to go visit my wonderful aunt for 5 whole days and do lots of fun things like visit the Old Globe Theatre (there is some Elizabethan thing going on so of COURSE we’re going), a trip to the Zoo (a visit to San Diego isn’t complete without going to either the Zoo or the Wild Animal Park), and a day at the Del Mar Fair. We will probably see a movie or two, do some shopping, eat too much junk, and generally just have a great time.
Did I mention I’m going ALL BY MYSELF?? I am! No husband. No kids. I love my kids, but I sure need a break. I have never been away from my kids for that long. I have spent three days away from them, and a week with the kids without Ches (done that a couple of times), but never so much time without any of them. I can’t believe I get to go be spoiled by aunt! I’m so excited! It’s going to be so so so so much fun! I get to sleep by myself and not hear “MomMomMomMomMom” 50 bajillion times a days. I get to eat breakfast without being asked if I can share. I get to sit without having someone have to come sit on me. I get to have uninterrupted girl time (although yes, we’ll spend lots of time with my uncle, too, who I love and is also awesome!). It’s gonna be a blast.
I’m also taking bets on how long it will take before I miss my kids so much I cry.
