Girl’s Weekend begins tomorrow! My sister, mom, Nada and her daughter Lindsay will be heading up to Kewaunee for a weekend of debauchery. There is still tons to get done before I leave. But what am I doing? Packing? Nope … blogging!
It suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks in the bottom of my stomach. This is the first time I’ll be away overnight from the triplets. While I’ve had day outings or a few hours out, I’ve never been away overnight. Ugh. I’m going to miss them!
They will be in good hands though. Doug’s parents are coming down to help. It’ll be some nice one on one time for them with the kids.
I’m bordering on being crazy mom. Honestly, I’m not trying to be. I just know how crazy it is around here and I had to learn these lessons the hard way. Like make sure you load and turn on the dishwasher before you go to bed because there is nothing worse than waking up to three crying babies and NO clean bottles! I just feel incredibly anal for actually writing them down.
I’ve got two meals prepped for while I’m gone. Sort of wish I’d be here for them … they are my favorite meals! I’ve got pulled pork sandwiches for dinner tomorrow with a pasta salad. Then I made Joy Behar’s famous lasagna for dinner on Saturday. We’ve got bread and cold cuts for lunch and eggs and toast for breakfast. I even have mom and dad’s favorite drinks (Mom=Pepsi and Dad=Beer and Diet Sierra Mist) I’ve got to treat them right if I want to have a chance of them doing it for us again! haha
So I’ve got most of my clothes laid out and of course I’ll have to gather my toiletries. Tomorrow I’ll wash the bed sheets, make some popcorn for the car ride up and finish my crazy mom notes. Doug took a vacation day so I’ll have some extra hands.
This weekend is going to be great! I can feel it in my bones. I just hope the beers don’t make me sappy about missing my boys!
Melissa and family-
I came across a link to your blog on facebook. I have been back each day to read about Owen’s progress. Your blog is very touching. What a wonderful mother you are. I am praying for Owen and thinking of you.
