First 24 Hours Away

This weekend was my first trip away from Rory.  It’s crazy to think that I have spent every day and night with her for over 5 months.  Since the trip was only for 24 hours I was really not that worried about leaving her alone with daddy or missing her too much.  I was more excited to see my Loni, Amy and Nikki and have a nice night out.

It ended up being a really great trip.  Exactly what I needed.  I was able to relax and have a good time. 

I never cried or was really that upset about being away from Rory.  I think its probably because I had a few updates from Tim, a couple of photos and I knew that he could handle it.  On the way home my flight was delayed 1 hour and I started getting a little anxious to get home and see the Rors though.  When I walked in the door Tim was holding Rory waiting for me in our entryway.

One of the Photos Tim sent me
I am going to California in 3 weeks for 5 days and that is going to be a whole other ball game.  That’s a long time to be away from her and I actually am a little sad thinking about it.

To make matters worse, when I got home I asked Tim how he felt about being with Rory alone for 4 days now that he did it for one – he said he felt very different now and wishes he had some help.  Not the words I want to hear! 

I am sure I will be sad – although I’m not really a crier so I doubt I’ll be a puddle like everyone thinks.  I will more likely just be anxious for the weekend to end and be very distracted.  Hopefully I can still enjoy myself and be in the moment as much as possible!

  1. What she is not telling everyone was that she had another baby to keep her occupied while away! LOL. Caleb loved all the silly songs Auntie Erica sang. I sing the willaby wallaby woo lyrics all the time now and C loves it!!

    It was such a fun visit. Tim will do wonderful while you are away! It will give your man a good taste of your time with Rory while you were on Mat leave and he was at work!
