Excitement vs. Guilt

My kids go to Salmon with my parents in two days. I have these conflicting feelings of excitement and guilt happening all at once. I don't know why I do this to myself. They go up there every summer for two weeks to spend time with both mine and Jeff's families. And every summer I get nostalgic and weepy before they go. I also get greedy with excitement thinking of all the fun things Jeff and I can do while the kids are away! Funny, Jeff has not shown one bit of weepiness or nostalgia...hmmmm. He has shown excitement, however. Weird.

This time, we are spending a week at home working very little and laying around on the couch a lot. We are then flying to Vegas for 5 days. I have a work conference, but have arranged some free time for us to kick up our heels. I get to take a day trip with other travel agents to the Grand Canyon and Jeff and I are seeing two shows...Blue Man and Zumanity. There are dinners we have to go to and I have meetings everyday. However, since I love my job, I am even looking forward to the those!

We'll get the kids and dog back from my parents the 22nd. In the meantime, I'll try and enjoy my free time and not miss my little trolls too much. (Oh, but they are so sweet and funny and squishy--ok, I'll stop already.)
