While it was BEAUTIFUL weekend in New England, that isn't making my Monday. However, my upcoming week IS. It has been a trying 5 months (duh, right?? Infant twins, and all) and I am in desperate need of a break. This Friday, I will be leaving Beantown for the Big Easy. One of my nearest and dearest friends is getting married and the hubs and I will be in attendance, SANS twins. This will be my first time away from them for more than a few hours since they have been home. And honestly, I'm really, really, really looking forward to it. The babies have been my pushing my every last button lately and as much as I love them, I think a little time away will make me a better, more patient mom.
Also, this will be my first time in New Orleans and its Jazz Festival - awesome! They have been playing ads for it and apparently Bon Jovi will be there. Not sure what Bon Jovi has to do with jazz but who cares - it's Bon Jovi!! (Ya...I'm a huge Bon Jovi fan. I touched him once. But that's another post for another day)
Here I am with Lena, the bride-to-be. Yes, we were drunk. And at a club. A small part of me misses those single days...a very small part.
Monday, Monday, Monday...what's getting your week off to a good start? Join in at Twinfatuation!
What a fun picture! (Like you, I occasionally miss those days, bu it's a very, very, very small part!)ReplyDelete
Enjoy New Orleans! (and waiting for that touching Bon Jovi post...)
Thanks for playing along with Makes My Monday!
Are you still going to Mexico with the swine flu? You deserve a break and to be completely honest when I left my kids to visit my sister and her new baby I didn't miss them as much as I thought I would. And don't worry - they will behave better for their sitter (your mom?) than they would for you. Do dish on preparations for leaving - pumped milk, schedules, etc.ReplyDelete
