30 Days to go

In thirty days we are going to Maryland – just the kids and I – Jason will be taking a pass on this trip.  He doesn’t really have enough leave from work yet and airline tickets are pricey.

 

I am very excited – there is so much cool stuff going on while we are visiting.  I am going to get to go to the ocean and eat crabs and see my grandmother. 

 

I’m a little nervous too though about three weeks alone with the kids, and I seriously expect I am going to come home exhausted and totally ready for school to start…with over a month before it does.

 

I also suspect I am going to be desperate to see Jason by the time we get home.  This will be the longest I have been away from him since we got married 14 years ago.  I have to admit I am bummed he isn’t coming. I really thought that he would be able to come for a week while we are there and I was really looking forward to hanging out with all our friends together and visiting his family with him.

 

Had I known he really wouldn’t be able to come I probably would only have planned to stay 10 to 14 days instead of 21, but I thought that he would be with us for a week of it.  The idea of being alone with the kids for 21 days is intimidating.  The idea of being without my best friend for 21 days is terrifying. 

 

At the same time – I am so excited to see all my friends and family in MD.  There are so many people I want to spend time with and so much I want to do while we are there.  Three weeks hardly seems like enough time.

 

Anyway 30 days to go and we will be in MD – YAY!!!

    Yay! Where are you and the kiddos staying while you are here? Are you going to be anywhere near the Perry Hall/Parkville area?
