My husband is sending me to see my sister for 5 days next week.
To say I'm excited is an understatement.
To say I need a re-charge is bang on.
I'm so happy to go!

and yet...

I feel guilty. And anxious. And sad.
How can I leave my kids?
My husband?
Or my life...or take from the (already tight!) family budget for a 'just me' trip.

On the other hand, how wonderful it will be to spend time with long ago and cherished friends. To have uninterrupted days, chats, coffee with my sister and brother. To connect and relax.
And to sleep. sleep.

I'm so very thankful and I so appreciate being spoiled by way of a trip. But wow...will I miss these faces?

And this one....:)

It's good though. It's a great thing.
My husband is beyond excited to spend so much time with his children and maybe they need a break from me as well. (I can be a bit much at times...)
Will miss them but, will enjoy my time away as well.
The struggles of being a wife/mother...

  1. I always feel torn if I am to have a break too. I have no advice for it but just know you are not alone and I guess it is testament to your beautiful life:) But extra rest and just being you sounds so good too. So good. Those moments saved me in the years I had! I have no more under three! How sad...) Anyway, Love the pics and I hope you have a very fun trip. What a great hubby to do that and your kids will probably love daddy time.
    Safe Travels:)
