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.
