Russ and I are going away WITHOUT kids!
Yes! You heard that right.
The last time we went away without any kids was for our anniversary in 2005 when Nanny Deb agreed to watch our 7 kids so we could have a real vacation. Of course, our vacation at the time consisted in us coming up to Pennsylvania and staying at my parent’s second home and me being completely nauseous because I was newly pregnant with my twins (unknown to us).
But, it didn’t matter. It was fabulous because we were away and that had been our only vacation without kids since our honeymoon.
So, yes, if you’re counting…
this will be the second time in SIXTEEN years that we’ve gone away!
And it is seriously a LONG time coming.
Lord knows, we need this, especially since we are still not moved into our new home and we have no clue when we will be…. (don’t ask. I want to puke when I think about it.)
So, if you’re wondering how we’re finally getting away…
All I can say is, I have a really, really great daughter who I can completely depend on when I need her and I can trust that she will watch Will in a way that allows me to relax a little.
And I’m so thankful because, holy cow, I need a vacation!
Even if it is just for one night 😉
Now, the countdown begins… just a week or so until I will have one glorious night as Debi the woman, and not have to be Debi the mom…
