Leaving on a Jet Plane. Yes, they have those here.

We're leaving in the morning. We - Me and Mark- are boarding a plane without our children. Gone for 5 days. I made a list of everything I needed to take.

It looked like this:

Clothes
Bible
Journal
Camera
Paperwork
Swimsuit
Shoes

That's it. That's all it takes for two grown ups to fly away together for a week's time to a warmer climate.

However, the list I made for the children to take to Grandma and Grandpa's house was exceedingly long. Long and long and long. Lot's of stuff those 4 kiddos "need".

Looking forward to this week even if it is for work. It's just me and Mark, alone at last, again. Off to packing ....

Wait a minute... I'm dreaming of going somewhere where I don't hear the words "Mommy" every 2 seconds or "I'm done, wipe me please" or a place where I don't have to say, "Stop yelling, share your toys and be nice to your sister"...
Oh, sorry, I forgot what I was doing.
I hope you and Mark have a wonderful time. I hope it goes well. Let me know!

You're leaving your kids for 5 days? Equal parts of me wish I could do that and wonder how I would manage...
