Suitcase packed – CHECK
Passport – CHECK
Bottle of Wine – CHECK
5 days with my BESTIE, no kids, no hubby, no responsibility – PRICELESS
For everything else there’s my VISA…ha ha!!!
But seriously – I’m heading out on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas tomorrow lunch time. I’ve never been away from my family for more than one night and I’m having some minor (ok, maybe major) anxiety about it. I don’t doubt that the hubs has everything under control but my mommy instinct is kicking in. I pulled the girls outfits for the week, phone numbers have been exchanged with all day care teachers, all notes have been made at the store, so on paper I’m ready to go…mentally…still working on it – the glass of wine is helping right now though!
Jules and I have been counting down the days to this trip, we’ve been friends for 15 plus years and believe it or not this is the first trip she and I are taking, just the two of us! I joked around that I might sleep through the first 24 hours of it but then I’ll be ready to go!
We head out of Charleston Saturday afternoon, out to sea Sunday, Nassau Monday, Freeport Tuesday, out to sea Wednesday and then back to Charleston Thursday. We’ve been stalking the weather since it hasn’t been too nice here, and it’s definitely looking touch and go while we’re out, but I know that we will make the most of it!
So needless to say, you won’t hear from me for a few days, but don’t worry – I’m still here and can’t wait to share all of the fun stories from our trip (we ALWAYS have some interesting stories when we get together!)
Hope you have a great weekend!
I’ll wave as we’re leaving town…look for me…HA HA
