Hubby suggested just a few days ago that we should take a trip to New York together. Just the two of us. I've never been to the States before, and I've wanted to see New York for a very long time. But more importantly than that, we've never been away together without the kids. EVER. In fact, this will be the first time anyone else has looked after the boys for us overnight (and then some). Our boys have never even slept over anyone elses house before without us in tow.
The flights were booked this morning.
I'm part excited, but also very, very nervous about such a prospect. I don't like to fly, and coupled with saying goodbye to my kids for a week....ugh. I can't think about it too much.
I feel selfish, even though I know I'd encourage any other couple to do this. What can I say? I'm complex like that.
Today, I'm going off to buy myself a cheesy New York travel guide. I hope that by looking through it, I'll become more focused on the fact that I'M GOING TO NEW YORK!
I am. In a matter of weeks, I'm going.
Hold me, people.
Do you travel without your kids? How do you cope? Are you afraid of flying like I am?
PS - Sister C, I know you'll be reading this. Surprise! I haven't told Mum and Dad yet. I'm working up to that. They are going to worry. :( Don't say anything to them for the next couple of days, hon. xxx
