Yep. Pretty much.
So, I am leaving on Saturday, and I will be gone FIVE WHOLE DAYS. I am attending a family get-together in my parents hometown, and I am going by myself. No kids, no husband. Which means, they are home to fend for themselves. This makes me...nervous. I will be honest. In fact, I told Thing Four (who is 5) that I was going away for a few days, and his immediate response:
"What? Who will give me baths and turkey sandwiches and take me to Taekwondo?"
See? Even at the tender age of 5, he gets it. Luckily I have a 14-year old daughter, who is VERY capable, and sons who are 13 and 11. They are going to be fine. I have coordinated with neighbors about rides to their summer activities, the swim lessons are literally at the clubhouse pool down the street, and I am going to plan/cook meals that can be heated up for the duration of my trip. I will make sure they have clean clothes and SOMEONE waters the flowers, walks the dog, etc. etc. etc.
Everything should be fine, right?
Pray for us.
