If you read this blog...and especially if you also follow me on Twitter, you may have heard me mention a time or ten that my last trip on this mad time of travel is going to be kid-free. Sans children. Without munchkins. And did I mention my kiddos aren't coming? Yee haw!
Well, I'm leaving for that final, short trip today! My flight is early this morning; I'll be going to Boston. Tomorrow my sister and brother-in-law will drop off their daughter at a sitter and we'll set out, bright and early, on the road to New York City. We'll spend the day there (including a chance for me to see a very good friend and meet her new baby--hi, Ann!) Then, thanks to The Engineer's frequent-stay points from business travel, we got a fantastic deal on a 4-star hotel. On Sunday, shortly after noon, I'll board a plane and head home.
This is the first time I've been away from my kids overnight. Ever. Wish The Engineer luck as he handles the two kids (one of whom is used to nursing just a bit most days.) He has not complained at all about the extra kid-duty he's taking on so Mommy can go play in New York City. The Engineer rocks. Time for me to roll!
