T-Minus 24

In less than 24 hours I will be leaving the kids with them for 3 days ...






and getting on one of these ...





so that I can meet up with him ...





and go look for these ...





Our first R&R trip has finally arrived! One hundred and sixteen daddy-free days behind us. Almost four full months crossed off on our year-long separation. Amazing how quickly the time flew by.

In just thirty-six hours I will be landing in DC and meeting up with Matt. Three kid-free days to drive around Virginia in search of the area we will soon call home. Three days to narrow down the neighborhoods we'll consider when purchasing our next house. So much driving to be done. So very little time to do it.

This little get away couldn't have come at a more perfect time either. I need the break from the kids. I need a break from mommy duty (and baby doody). We are in such cramped quarters that the girls have been off their rocker and have been climbing the walls. Literally.





Have a nice weekend everyone. We're at the beginning of a great three weeks ...

That is AWESOME!!!
An airplane ride without kids is absolutely fabulous, and the fact that you are meeting your hubby is even better.

Enjoy.

I know you will want to be alone with Matt as much as possible - but could you find a small window to see me??? You could even come to our house and check out our neighborhood. We could make lunch for you one day. Just let me know - I'd SO love to see you.

Oh honey, I am so happy for you. So very happy. Tried to tell you that on the WWF text thingy, but it tried to eat me.

Anyway, enjoy your time away and happy house hunting.
