I just got back from a four day business trip, which I was dreading, but it was not so bad. Four days away from my boys is the longest I have ever been apart from them. I think the longest was a day…seriously.
So this was a hard trip for me and for them. As I left on Sunday, Coop was crying and asking why he could not come with. It ripped my heart out. I was crying too…thank goodness for sunglasses!
However, the trip went by quickly. I was busy most of the time and Ken was awesome with sending me pictures and videos. And video chats were my highlight of the day!
The other thing I realized while on the trip was I had four days of someone waiting on me. Not that I don’t love ‘jumping’ whenever the boys need me, but WOW, was it nice to have someone cook for me.
I also was able to escape the chaos that is my house since we are packing up to move. At home, every free moment I have is packing or cleaning or finding a place to live. I had four days away from that.
On this trip, I had an afternoon of free time and was able to do whatever I wanted to. This is a luxury I rarely get. My ‘to-do’ list never ends with work, the move, the kids, etc. so having these four hours was great.
So the trip was bearable and I tried to look for the positives in it.
Yet there is nothing like coming home and getting smothered with hugs and kisses from my two FAVORITE guys!
