Another Trip...

Do you ever have those days when you just think, "What on earth am I doing??"

Today is one of those days.  I think I've said many many times on this blog that I'm not great at preparing for trips.  I don't love to venture very far out of my comfort zone.  I'm not crazy about flying alone.  And I really REALLY like my little routine.  

But...I also really REALLY like my mom.   She's going to be in Las Vegas for a long weekend, and so I'm flying out to meet her there.   I can't get to Hawaii anytime soon and she isn't coming all the way to Texas on this trip, so...Vegas it is! 
I made this trip a couple of years ago and my sister came with my mom.  Super fun!  

Before I can get on a plane, though, I have to make sure all my little ducks are in a row at home.  Why is it so hard to leave all those "mom responsibilities" for someone else to do??  

I have stocked the fridge, planned/made dinners for the next two days, written out a schedule, done laundry, vacuumed (why I thought I needed to do that, I'm not sure) and made dessert for the youth activity tonight.  Oh, did I mention that I said yes when Savannah asked me last week if she could please have all the 16+ YM/YW and their leaders over to our house after a scavenger hunt that she's in charge of tonight?  (again...not sure what I was thinking)

I'm sure I'll be excited once I get to Vegas and see my mom, but holy cow! it's agony trying to get everything done before I feel comfortable leaving.  Phew...I'll let you know if I make it out the door.  :)


  1. Oh...enjoy your visit with your mom! Hope soon you are resting on that plane with all arrangements behind you and fun days ahead! : )
