Here it is. The final day and it is after 11 p.m. I have had slicing on my mind so much today, afraid I would forget to do it. I think I almost did! Today I am sitting here surrounded by piles of clothes as we prepare for a trip to a conference this weekend. My kids are making a trip to the grandparents and my husband and I are going to a be kid free for four days! It's going to be amazing and it will make those hugs at the end of those four days that much sweeter.
I love my kids but I also think little breaks once in a while are good. It's great for my kids to have the undivided attention of their grandparents and it is wonderful for my husband and me to have a meal whenever we want! I am really looking forward to the trip, the break from school, and some different surroundings. It is welcomed and much needed.
