OK, so I probably won't be receiving the mother of the year award this month. I am leaving my children again this weekend, for my 13th annual Girls Weekend. Every year during this weekend myself and 6 or 7 of my college girlfriends hit the road for a different New England location. We spend 2 days and nights drinking, eating, talking, shopping, enjoying housekeeping and being waited on at restaurants. It is GREAT. It is a necessary recharging event and at times I wonder if I could get through the rest of the year without it. It is so wonderful to be with people you've known forever, who know you and get you and just can "be", ya know? Jack was a little upset when he realized that this was the weekend I was leaving. "But you just got back" he whined. "Why are you leaving again?" Ughghg, knife through the heart. But NOT going away is NOT an option, in 13 years I have not missed a single weekend. So off I go to Newport, leaving Dennis to fend for himself for 2 days. I'm sure they will be fine, the trailer will be a mess when I get home of course. The kids will not eat a vegetable or brush their teeth, and probably be exhausted from getting to stay up as late as they want, but whatever . . . I'll have a good time. Later all.
Oh, I know I promised St. Thomas pictures, so here are a couple more for you to jealously look at. Hee hee.
