It Takes A Village

stressSo I am fairly certain that this is what my family sees when they look at me lately!  As some of you know, I am busily preparing to leave in exactly 1 week for a fabulous trip of a lifetime to the Mediterranean (hooray)!  I  am fully aware of how incredibly blessed I am to be going on this trip, and am equally aware that once I am settled in on that airplane with a cocktail in my hand, I will be absolutely fine.   But up until that moment, my guess is that I’m going to continue to resemble this little guy!  What a daunting task it is to think of every detail of  my daily schedule to pass on to the brave souls who have volunteered to watch over my children, home, pets and business while I’m gone!  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve popped up in bed in the middle of the night because I thought of something else I have to tell them!  The good news is, I am now recognizing my neurosis when it hits and have come up with a mantra to repeat in such moments…“As long as the kids are still alive and the house is still standing when I get home, everything else can be fixed!”   Now I have to figure out how to deal with the guilt upon my return when my support team resembles this picture!
