I just said goodbye to my kids for a whole week.
Everybody just take a moment and let that sink in will you?
Now everybody breath in..... and out.....
Then pass around the breath mints if you would.
Anyway, that's what I'm doing a lot of right now. Breathing in...... because my mommy heart is a little worried. Worried I won't be there if they need me. Worried something bad might happen. Worried I'll miss a great moment.
And breath out......... because God is in control of my kids' lives, not me. God can protect them way better than I ever can. God will never leave them nor forsake them. (Like I just did) (kidding) (I think)
But on a bright note... I NOW HAVE NO KIDS FOR A WHOLE WEEK!!!! Let the part-tay begin already! I've been waiting for this party for 9 years! Wooo-hoooo!
I've got big plans in store while the kids are gone. My to do list is a mile long! This is the first time ever that the kids have left ME at the house. It's always been the other way around. So break out the trash bags, mama's throwing out everything I can get my hands on!
Other top priorities while they're gone are as follows...
- Sleep in EVERY day.
- Go out to eat with a friend.
- Walk around my house in the buff (wait, that's going on the 'maybe to do' list).
- Take naps. Whenever I want.
- Buy all the stuff at the grocery store that I really want, but never buy because the kids would eat it all.
- Go to a movie all by myself and NOT share my popcorn.
- Take a five hour long bath.
- Read a book.
So in honor of this most momentous occasion of my kids being gone for a whole week, I'm hosting a giveaway! Remember when I posted about our handy dandy Fridge-to-go here and here?
Well we brought it along with us on our road trip to hand off the kids. I packed it full of juice boxes and a juice drink thingy that I really like. (Thingy IS a technical term in case you wondered)
It did a fantastic job of keeping our drinks ice cold with it's great Surround Cooling feature!
