We spent the night away from the babes Friday night!! Dan has been away a few times this year - classes, continuing ed, and such. I have never been away. I was nervous. The girls stayed at home with Dodie and Pop. I was not nervous about the caregivers, I was not nervous that the girls wouldn't be just fine without me...I was nervous that I might not be ok without them!
I left them at noon to go pick up Dan and head to the airport. I was sad. They didn't cry when I left, or seem nervous about the 15 hugs they had to endure before I made it to the door. I picked up Dan and we went out for lunch. I was still sad. Then we made it to the airport and had a drink and a few laughs. I was still a little sad. Then we got on the airplane and flew to Phoenix. We flew Southwest and got there late, so we sat a row apart...in the middle chair. I was sad (50% because of the girls, 50% because of the chair). Then we landed in Phoenix and headed to the hotel. I was over it.
