In just 7 hours I will be on my way to the airport. On my way to Las Vegas. I will obviously be away from Gather for 3 days. I will catch up on everyone when I get back, I am sure that I will have like a zillion pictures to view from my friends.
I am having quite a bout of serious mommy guilt. I feel bad about leaving my kids behind, and I am having some typical mom anxiety. I know my husband will take good care of them, and I also know he wants me to have a really good time. He wants me to relax and get away. I will try, I am sure I will have a good time, it will just be difficult to leave tomorrow morning.
Of course I am also having a bit of fear, worrying about my family if something were to happen to me. I am not really afraid of flying, but there is a small fear of death when ever I fly.
I will be with 10 women so I am sure we will spend at least an hour a day discussing what we will be doing that day. Last time we went to Las Vegas was for my sister in laws anniversary. They got married in Vegas and we all had agreed at the wedding that we would return on their anniversary in 10 years and we did. There was only 7 of us that time, and 2 of them were men: my husband, and brother in law. And on that trip we spent at least 45 minutes in the lobby everyday discussing plans, and waiting for people to come down from their rooms.
I will see you all in a few days.
