Choosing to stay home

By , April 17, 2010 10:20 am

I had an amazing plan.  I would pack up with seven of my closest girlfriends and spend the weekend in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  We’d laugh, we’d cry, lots of estrogen would be involved.  Then I realized how much I’d been away from home.  With over two weeks in Korea and then recovering from jet lag, and a trip to the South last week, I’ve barely been here.  My kids and Hubby have noticed.

After a long talk with Hubby, we decided to have a family weekend instead.  I had my regrets, when Zeke’s 45 minute cry-fest coincided with all of my friend’s excited Facebook status updates.  But then Bubba and Zeke fell on me in a group hug, settled down for bed early, and Hubby and I snuggled on the couch for a movie night-in.

I’m sure at this very moment all of my closest friends are laughing and crying and, well, bonding while I’m here with my Hubby and kids.  It was a tough choice, but one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

P.S.  Hey girlfriends, if you’re reading this I’m attaching the following pictures with captions just as if I was there.

"That was so funny!"

"Wow, these Hot Springs are HOT!"

"And then, when I was five years old..."

"Yes! I am this scary when I'm hungry. Let's eat!"
