Tomorrow I'm leaving these honeys and this autumn weather in Minnesota, for a child-free existence amidst 88 degrees in Texas!
But only for a weekend.
I'll be back next week, with tales to tell of what grown women do when they're childless. For 2-1/2 days anyway. I've heard that full nights' sleep are involved. Also using the restroom in private, and eating an entire meal without having to get up once.
Best of all, this little jaunt will include hanging out with one of my dearest friends in the entire world--truly, words cannot do justice to her kindheartedness and her loyalty--so I know I'll have a lot of fun. Probably involving chocolate.
I don't leave for another day, but I know today is going to be consumed with finishing the weekly housecleaning, cooking some healthy advance-dinners, and packing for a climate some 45 degrees warmer than the one here. Unfortunately, I'll be doing all this with the help of a major caffeine overdose, because Genevieve kept me up ALL NIGHT LONG last night for the fourth night in a row. I thought this night-waking business was over once the baby was DONE BREASTFEEDING. What the heck? Why all the crying and yelling and tossing and turning and calling and screaming and bad dreams and no blankets and bedtime tantrums and morning grumps? Am I in kid-sleep hell?
I need my coffee and some PBS Kids. Oh! And also a weekend getaway! Ahhhh....
See you next week.
