I’m going away for the weekend!  I’m very happy about this.  I’m very sad about this. 

5 of us Mommies are going to a cabin in the woods for 48 hours.  We are leaving behind our responsibilities and mini-vans.  We are leaving behind the whining and constant need for attention.  We are leaving behind our messy kitchens, dishes, and toy rooms/areas.  We are leaving behind getting up once or twice a night and waking at 6:30 am on a Saturday morning. 

This weekend can’t last long enough!!!!

But then again…..

5 of us Mommies are going to a cabin in the woods for 48  hours.  We are leaving behind our families and homes.  We are leaving behind the giggles, squeals of delight, and constant entertainment.  We are leaving behind the hugs, smiles, and kisses.  We are leaving behind snuggling in bed with our families.  We are leaving behind those dimples!

This weekend can’t go fast enough!!!!!

This will be my first time sleeping away from my family.  I am anxious to get away with the girls and reconnect with old friends, but I’m also sad about leaving my guys behind to fend for themselves.  (and by fending for themselves, I mean eating the meals I’ve cooked for them and enjoying the clean house I’m leaving for them)

Let’s pray that we all survive! 


  1. I know exactly how you feel! I love getting away, but I always miss my family SO much. I just keep reminding myself that having time for me gets me refreshed and ready to face the day-to-day again. And besides, you'll be with some of the best people in the world this weekend :P

  2. You'll do great!!

    But what do I know? I only leave my children when I'm birthing their sibling. I sooooooo need a life

  3. Sounds like fun!! Enjoy your relaxation & rejuvenation!!

  4. How was the weekend retreat? How many times did you call home? =) How did the boys do??? How did it feel to get back home?


Your comments mean the world to me. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
