The “mommy stint” is over…(and I already miss her)

So baby Pauline’s caretaker returned from town yesterday and was eager to get her back into her care.  So I kissed those fat, chunky, rosy cheeks goodbye and really missed not rocking her to sleep last night.

But another part of me was happy to have a “baby-free” night to just chill out and relax in a hot bath with my iPod.

Tomorrow we’re catching a plane to Anchorage for the annual conference we attend every year.  We transferred our tickets to Brian’s airline so we could leave Friday night versus Saturday morning and Dusty, his mom, Brian, our dogs and ourselves are all flying in to town together so we can spend Cinco De Mayo weekend carousing the streets of Anchorage.

Of course, I’m also excited about going to the movies, going shopping, eating at Sullivan’s, and most importantly seeing and hugging Tess.

Last year I didn’t get to see her at all because we never got an opportunity to actually go to the office.  (Our conference is held at the hotel we stay in)  But this year, I’m dragging her out with our drunk and foolish asses and buying her a Margarita.

Pepper and Lucky are going with us because Lucky hasn’t had a check up since we moved here almost two years ago and Pepper is in bad need of a grooming.  I know I promised Lucky I’d never put him on a plane again but let’s get real, the little guy needs routine vet car and with Brian’s plane, he can ride on my lap the entire lap thus minimizing any trauma to his poor mind.

That also means that I won’t be posting here for a good week so you all take care, have a great weekend and upcoming week and I’ll see you on the flip side!
