-I woke up extra early and thought we'd finally be to piano on time.  We were still 5 minutes late.
-I went to see my dad for a visit and delivered his newly fixed modem/laptop.  I do a whole lot of tech support for that thing.
-I came home and started the laundry marathon. 8 large loads.  It has consumed the day.
-I spent a lot of time looking for my currently-missing wedding ring.  Pockets have been checked.  Counters have been cleared.  Drawers have been dug through.  Still no signs.
-I cleaned out the fridge and did several runs of the dishwasher.
-I tied up loose ends of things to mail and mail received and sorted through magazines and papers and ended up with a large pile of recycling.
-I cleaned bathroom sinks and toilets but avoided the deep-clean of the bathrooms that really needs done.
-I helped the kids clean up toys and books and clothes and toys and books and toys, and honestly there are still a few out again at the end of the day.
-I ordered pizza because the husband worked late and with all the cleaning of the day, the cooking wasn't happening.
-I tried on maternity capris and started packing.
-I kept myself busy in an attempt to quiet my anxious heart.  I'm leaving tomorrow night for a girl-trip with one of my best friends.  Don't get me wrong, I'm excited.  I've readied my lists for the husband and stocked the freezer full of meals.  I'm looking forward to shopping and warm weather and reading a book uninterrupted and all of those things moms dream about.  The last time I left was when another best friend had a baby and Miss A was one.  I've never left my boys.  I'm just a little blue.  I didn't sleep well last night and let the tears roll thinking about no chubby armed hugs and no endless streams of questions and no morning cuddles for the next few days.  The break will be good.  I'm hoping after I leave I will be just fine and enjoy the chance to recharge my batteries.  But there is a part of me that thinks I'm crazy to leave this busy beautiful mess for a few days.  Tell me I'm not the only one who has a hard time leaving their kids?
