Up, Up and Away!

Next week is going to be odd for me.....but I am psyched. I am going away for four nights to visit a friend in North Carolina.....sans hubbie and my son. Don't get me will feel strange and no doubt I'll miss them.....but I need this time to myself. To reclaim myself, so to speak.....the me I was before I became mom and even Mrs.

Other than attending the local NC fair, I have no particular vacation agenda, and I like it that way. What a change of pace not to have a schedule. I aim to wing it, and have some girlfriend bonding time....something I sorely miss.

While I've made some new, dear women friends in the last few years since I've become a mom, many of my other friends....including those who are single.....I don't get to see so much, if at all these days. Life has become so very busy for everyone....and connecting sometimes feels like a luxury.

I hate to pack....and have much to take care of before I leave. And, being the planner that I am, I am already anticipating coming home and falling back into my daily multi-tasking routine. But, I'm going to try my darndest to live in the moment while away. Seth will be well taken care of by our nanny and my husband. I hope Seth won't cry a lot when I will surely break my heart. But at the same time, I want him to understand that while mommy sometimes leaves, she, G-d willing, does return. I hope in his heart he will know that I'm always there for him.....and assuming I return with renewed spirit, I'll have that much more to offer.

Wow! More power to you for going away on your own. I'm considering taking a trip with Noa to Colorado sometime in May. Hubby is going hunting for a week and I can't stand the thought of being here alone for a week without him and with her. I've done it for a few days, and it is insanely hard. I have no idea how single moms do it.
