"My bags are packed, I'm ready to go... 'cause I'm LEAVIN' ON A JET PLANE, DON'T KNOW WHEN I'LL BE BACK AGAIN..." (I have to belt it in all caps 'cause the baby's still napping.)
Ok, well, there isn't a jet plane involved, but my minivan is pulling out of here at bedtime. No later. And bedtime may get pushed a little bit earlier than usual. Nana will be here. If she wants to yank him out of his crib to sing all five verses of "Jesus Loves Me" after I'm gone... well, I won't know about it, will I?
I've Mapquested the hotel, and I've read travel reviews. I know, I know, but I almost NEVER get to stay in a hotel. Especially one with an indoor Jacuzzi and good breakfast bar. Or one that you have to walk through a lobby to get to your room. =) Seth and I visited the library this morning. He got more board books. Mommy got some novels and some books on CD for the road. The Dr. Peppers are packed snugly in my suitcase, awaiting their cold nest in the ice bucket when I arrive. Gotta have my morning elixir.
This won't be a romantic getaway. David is going to be completely occupied with his Big Work Project. I'll be there for moral support, bubble baths in a tub I didn't have to clean, and sympathetic smiles as I look up from my novel. Perhaps I will even eat breakfast with him, for free, at a place where I don't have to cook or clean up. It's the little things, people!
So, see ya later! Hopefully no disaster will befall Seth and Nana. I don't want to have to come back early!
