I have to admit it... I'm in full on panic mode about my upcoming trip.
I know I can't complain about a free trip to anywhere, never mind Hawaii but all this planning is insanely stressful. Also, money has been very very tight lately - being a single mama with no help is the pits sometimes. I've been scrounging and doing every odd job I can just to have a teeny bit of spending money while we're gone. I'm still going to feel guilty about anything I spend on myself. Combine that with the stress of being away from my little bean for six days and you can see why I'm freaking out a little (ok, a lot)!
I have about four simultaneous to-do lists and my suitcase and carry on have been semi packed for about a week now. I know almost exactly what I'm bringing for myself and I'm not worried about leaving anything behind. However, every time I think about starting to pack Aurora up for her week at Nana Poo's house I start freaking out again. I don't know how to be away from her. Yes, I know I have to learn but it's going to be tough. I think half of the problem is that it will be for so long and I'm SO far away. There's no chance I can get back in less than a full day if there was an emergency!
How did you other mamas cope with your first long trip away from your littles?! I need some reassurance.
