Day 1

Day 1 of vacation. We started our journey 12 hours ahead of schedule. We traveled just under 1300 miles with 2 hours of sleep at a rest stop in just under 21 hours. We have another 4 1/2 hours to go. The goal is to get there before noon. That is 3 more states my husband has taken to me and will add 1 if not 2 tomorrow. And then… 5 days of nothing but whatever we decide at whatever time we decide. We will follow that with 2 romantic where we spent our honeymoon 6 years ago.

Leaving last night was so hard. Hubby was ready to leave the moment he got home from work. I sat for hours holding my puppies and talking to my son while nervously crying and scared to leave. As excited as I was to come on this trip with my hubby, I didn’t want to leave my puppies or my son. After much reassurance from my son and our families best friend, I finally agreed to go early and we left. It took several hours for me to be able to settle into my “vacation spirit”.

I spoke with my son twice, our puppies once, and multiple others via text. My goal for tomorrow is to make the entire day and only check on my son and puppies. I have recently overcome so much, taking this time and using it to heal, recharge, and my husband and I to rekindle that new love feeling. It’s been so long since I’ve, since we’ve gotten out of the house on a date, much less leave town it’s hard for me to feel comfortable and not feel selfish.

Goal for tomorrow…no panicking, no checking in with anyone other than our son and no feeling selfish. It’s important because we never know what tomorrow will or won’t bring, if we even get a tomorrow at all.

I'm a middle aged working woman. I have raised four boys of which my baby is 17. Motherhood began at age 17 for me. For 30 years every choice I've made was as a mother. This past year, two of my sons have decided life is better without me. I'm a mom, a grandma, a wife that was divorced and now remarried. Here I am, still trying to figure out this thing called life.
