I wish this post was about moms taking a much needed girls-only getaway full of day drinking, laughter and zero laundry. It’s not.
It wasn’t that long ago when I was working on a “pep talk” to share with you (and get myself in gear) for the beginning of the school year. Well…the months have flown by and HERE WE ARE. It is the month that separates the weak from the strong…MAY! (I am starting to really understand why Mothers are celebrated this month, but I would honestly be ok if the holiday was moved to July…when we could enjoy it a bit more)
A couple weeks ago, my husband found out that he got accepted for a professional development program and was going to have to attend training in St. Paul, Minnesota for a weekend. When he asked me to join him on the excursion, I excitedly said yes! Room service, a whole lot of me-time, and exploring a new place? Who would turn that down?
I was happy for the thought of a weekend away from responsibility – until I realized that Minnesota is pretty far from good ol’ Eden NY and would require me getting on an airplane, a thought that pretty much paralyzed me.
