Remember the grand plan I had to whisk my husband away for a weekend? A great friend even offered to watch both girls. How lucky was I, that Boo didn't terrify her? I guilted a family member into taking crazy puppy. Well, not really guilted. I told her that if she took crazy puppy for the weekend her husband would stop asking to get a dog.
We were all set for this weekend. Except, I told my mother. Whom I love! But then she asked if we were coming down for Easter. I explained that I didn't want to travel two weekends in a row nor could I afford two trips in less than 7 days. I could tell she was disappointed.
I get home and tell Hubs. He "was looking forward" to going down South to get out of this freaking cold weather. I told Hubs my dilemma. His response? Whatever you want to do. HONEY.
Oh, so helpful.
Going back and forth all night, I decided I was being selfish. That the girls would love to see their grandparents. That we are the only ones ever willing to travel down there to see them. They always have to travel to see family. That the holidays are tough when it is just the two of them.
And then Boo got sick at about 3am. (side note, guess who was working?) Again, I was on the fence. I know our friend will be awesome, and am so thankful for her offer. But.....
Between the guilt and the worry it just isn't worth it. I cancelled our reservations and I will beg "J" to keep her offer open for when it is warmer. That we will try again for some time away. I was also thinking that this is something our parents never worried about. They never traveled without us. Back in the day, people just didn't travel as often period. Let alone a vacation from their kids.
Yes, I admit, it would be a vacation from the girls!
I called Hubs and let him know that I cancelled the reservations. His response: Why? I told him my reasoning. His reply: Well if that's what you want to do.
Did I mention how helpful he is?
