Tomorrow I leave on Momcation 2009. I like writing 2009 because it makes it sound like I will be doing this every year, when in reality, I will probably only be taking a trip without my kids and husband about once a decade.
I'm a little nervous. This is the first time I will be leaving Charlie for more than a day.
I've been a little psychotic trying to get everything ready for Erik and my friends who will be watching him while Erik is at work.
I didn't realize how OCD this was, until I took this picture. I went through all of Charlie's clothes and put one outfit in each plastic bag. This way Erik can easily grab something for him to wear in the morning. Can you tell that I am nervous about leaving him? It's not that Erik isn't capable of taking care of him, I just worry that Charlie will give him a hard time.
As for Erik, I'm not one of those wives who makes and freezes meals for him to eat while I am gone. I asked if he wanted that and he said that he wanted hot dogs. So I went to the store and bought a couple of different variations on the hot dog. Between this and Taco Bell, he should be alright.
So, that's it. I'm good to go. Tomorrow I leave to meet my sisters in Baltimore. Special thanks go out to Erik, my friends, my parents, and especially the Pennies from Heaven for making it all possible.
Momcation 2009, here I come!
