Wednesdays are usually wordless for me. However, today is a little different. I’m full of emotion and I’ve got to get it off my chest. So, I will post pictures next Wednesday. My mom was in town for the last week and a half and spoiled me in every way possible. I cooked one meal the whole entire time she was visiting. She spent time with her grandchildren, I got to catch up with her, take her around to sight see and we relaxed and we had days where we did absolutely nothing!
Well, our time came to an end this morning. We woke up at 5:00 a.m. so we could get her to the airport on time to catch her flight destined for the Virgin Islands. I held it together until it was actually time to kiss and say goodbye. Then the tears started to flow! I also had the task of saying goodbye to my children this morning for roughly two weeks. They left me to spend time with their grandma (hubby’s mom). They do this every summer and I cry every time they leave. They call me everyday and let me know what activities they have planned, where they are and just to say ” Mommy, I Love You!” They are my heart. I honestly am not used to having peace and quiet. I am lost without chaos, hectic schedules and an occasional referee session in between the natural sibling rivalry that goes on between the Fab 4!
I work better with noise, chaos, and when I’m on deadline. That’s probably the opposite for most people. Maybe, I’m just weird like that! Well, after crying all morning; I had to turn this into a positive experience. These are moments that the hubby and I rarely get so, we decided to take the next couple of weeks and really focus on us. Every night is “Date Night” So, I’ve scheduled a few Romantic Dinners at couple of upscale restaurants. You know, the ones we wouldn’t dare take the kids to because there is nothing on the menu they would eat; you see more plate than food, and by the time you get the bill you’ve spent one hundred dollars. I know what your thinking, then why go… Well, first of all we don’t go often and second of all we have gift certificates so, why not?
I’ve also planned for us to attend some concert events and gave hubby an opportunity to chime in with anything he’d like to do. Hubby is very spontaneous, he doesn’t plan. He’s a spur of the moment type of guy. So, I’m sure I’ll be surprised a few times within the next couple weeks. I know he’ll keep me busy because he hates to see me sad or cry. I’m an emotional wreck when I miss my babies! Well, I’m going to have to get used to the peace and quiet, and try to get some designing done.
Until Next time,
