Steve's soccer team is playing in an annual tournament in a town about a 6-7 hour drive from our home (Vernon) on the May long weekend.
Originally I planned to go too, with the kids. Then I changed my mind, thinking it would be too much work.
Then this week I realized that next Thursday morning, Steve will leave and be gone for 5 days.
That's 5 days as a single mom with a 2.5 year old and an 11 month old...
Naturally I went into panic mode and required sedation.
So it turns out that it's NOT too late for the kids and I to join in on this little trip. Heh... *phew*
Except that while I blocked out all Steve's planning and trip details over the past couple of months, he made arrangements to leave on Thursday morning to go golfing in a neighboring city with a teammate. Which just means that I would have to drive to Vernon, alone with the kids on Friday. Which... I'm going to do. But I'm a little bit nervous. But kind of excited about the trip too. The hotel has a pool and free breakfast and we have a kitchenette and there are restaurants and a mall nearby. With a little luck the weather will be decent and we have have some fun.
My concerns are these -
~ the drive, alone with two little, bitty kids.
~ Lincoln's sleeping (I don't want to mess it up)
~ being stuck in the hotel room every night from 7pm on because kids need to go to bed.
~ sticking to my diet
~ getting obsessed with planning for the next week.
Anyone who has any tips, suggestions, tricks, assvice for me? I'm all ears.
