Well, its Saturday evening, approximately 4 days before I have to be packed and completely ready for our trip. We leave for Curacao first thing (6:00am flight...uugh) Thursday morning. I am a procrastinator at heart. Always have been, always will be. So I'm trying to wrap my mind around the fact that it really is time to start getting things ready. I just have no clue where to start! Tonight I'm exhausted and tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday with somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-50 people coming over, so realistically speaking, I'm not going to touch a suitcase until Monday, probably at 1 o'clock when Bennett goes down for a nap.
Right now I'm at about 70% excited, 30% apprehensive for our 10 day trip away from Bennett. I feel so blessed to be able to take a trip like this in February and can't wait to bask in the sun and ocean and reconnect with my husband but that is a long time away from my baby boy! Both sets of grandparents are going to take wonderful care of him and will be great replacement mommies and daddies for the week but sometimes a boy just needs his momma! I hope those moments are few and far between and short lived while we're gone.
So far I think we've only had 2 nights in a row away from him. If anyone has any tips or advice, I'd love to hear it! I bought him a couple presents to open while we're gone and I'd like to record a short video of Jon and me talking to him to email to our parents so they can play it for him. Oy vey, I need to start a list. That always clears my mind!
