Slow, deep breaths

This is a new feeling for me. I have never experienced anxiety about going on vacation. I LOVE vacations! Who doesn't, right? Well, this is our first "real" vacay since Campbell was born.

One evening a few months back, we decided to cash in Alan's frequent flier miles and head to a beautiful beach somewhere. In spite of the multiple glasses of wine, I had enough sense not commit to leaving the country without Campbell... however, three glasses of red wine clouded my judgement a tiny bit when it came to how long we should stay. What started out as a long weekend, suddenly turned into a 5 day vacation.

Grita and Hooterbox couldn't be MORE delighted. I am sure they have all sorts of completely unacceptable spoilage planned! She probably won't even want to come home...

I am trying not to think about not seeing her for 5 whole days- because when I do, I start to freak out a little. Maybe Ainzley Opal will post some pictures of all the fun she and her cousin are having while I am away...

Lots of love!
Campbell's Mom

Words cannot express how excited we are to have Campbell for 5 days.We do indeed have lots of things planned but "what happens at Gritas stays at Gritas"
Have a nice vacay!!!!

Ainzley Opal has already hid all the hammers and picked out her helmet. :) We can't wait!!! And we do have some fun stuff planned - all VERY acceptable for Grita's house... We won't get too crazy - I expect some future trips to Auntie Poopsies house will be payback.

I will be watching for good caregiver abilities- you better not drop Campbell off in a week with any injury!
