As much as my husband annoys me, there are times he does the opposite and totally surprises me. Last night he tells me he made weekend plans for us. Months ago.... since before Thanksgiving...he has been plotting. Opal is going to keep the girls Friday AND Saturday night, and we are going to New Orleans for the weekend. *dies* I'm thrilled to death that we're going to have some time together. It's been three years!! It will definitely help our relationship to take a break from the mommy/daddy routine. I can't wait to be "US", even if it's for a little while.

At the same time, I'm terrified... anxious... about leaving the girls with somebody!! My mom and dad have kept Valerie for days, but Veronica...... I've never been away from her for more than a few hours. Valerie will be okay since she is nuts about Lana. She was ready to go RIGHT THEN when we asked her if she wanted to sleep at Lana's house. My Veronica though... I am not sure how she will handle being away from me. I hate that somebody else might (most likely will) be inconvienced by my kids! *sigh* I guess we will never know how they handle it unless we try.... and we'll only be an hour away if we need to come home....

I told both Clint And Opal they are NUTS for coming up with this plot.... so that's my warning if all goes awry!

    Inconvenienced? NAH! This is Lana's first sleepover with a friend and she is so excited that both girls are coming over .... Don't worry about Roni --- I've cared for much worse than her (never did tell you about the 50 lb 9 mo old that I watched when I was 18 that stayed up all night and would only sleep if I walked him around the room) -- I'm a trooper! She'll do fine and you guys will have a blast.

  2. You guys deserve a weekend together after 3 years and 2 kids! Was the Disney trip when you were pregnant with Val the last time you were alone. From what I remember that trip was not quite calming and peaceful.
