I’m losing my mind and it wasn’t a far trip!
The kids and I are going on our vacation tomorrow and will be gone a week. We are flying. The good thing is that I don’t have to drive them a long distance. The bad news is that I have to navigate the Atlanta airport tomorrow with 3 kids and a 48 minute layover. Our departure gate appears to be about 2 terminals over from where we come in so I expect running and crying. Or missing our plane all together.
I am packing and planning and scheming and trying to keep in good spirits and hang loose. That is the goal of this trip,
We are gonna hang loose and smile like these women.

I wanna see smiles like that all week long.
No really, we are going to an entirely different area of the country and we are going to be tourists and go to museums and see different things and eat different food and smile like we are smokin dope all week long. The kids are going to get along and I’m not going to forget anything and no one is going to complain that their feet hurt and I’m going to be fine doing it all on my own.

Actually, I’m just so grateful that it is my turn and I’m not going to have to kiss them goodbye and have that trauma again of being left. I wonder if Stanley is dreading it like I was? Speaking of Stanley, he is going to start moving a few things to his apartment while we are gone. It may be different here when we get back.
This will be a different sort of vacation going without Stanley. We will be making new memories. I have moments where I am afraid it will be sad for the kids. I hope not. I plan to make it fun.
I’ll update from the road. Please send good thoughts about the Atlanta airport. I’ll be the one screaming, “Hang Loose!”
