Well, only 3 days left until I leave on my trek across the US to visit the world renowned Procter & Gamble Headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio to attend the Pampers Mommy Bloggers Event. Today I received my final confirmation along with my flight schedule, hotel reservations, itinerary, and even bios of the other Mommy Bloggers attending. Boy, I’ll definitely be in great company!
As I started packing, I realized that this will be the longest time I’ve ever been away from my family. It was at that moment that I started to question my decision to go. Even though I know the girls will be in very capable hands, I just can’t imagine not seeing them every day. Even when I go to work, I usually do 2-day trips so I at least get to see them before I leave and when I get home.
Part of the arrangements was having a car service pick me up at my home and take me to the airport. And although that would have been pretty cool, I decided to have my family drop me off instead. Hmmm . . . maybe not such a good idea after all. I can just imagine the tears when I have to say goodbye – not theirs, but mine.
What’s the longest time you’ve been away from your family?
