I posted a few days ago that I was nervous about leaving the kids. We’ll after reading all the comments, I started getting really excited. I made lists to pack up the children. For all those with kids, you know how daunting the packing process is. It took a full day to pack both of them – all the formula, sippy cups, bottles, clothes, pacifiers, etc.
As I was packing, I kept watching the news. It looked at first it wasn’t going to be a big deal with the hurricane. Always a chance meteorologists can be wrong? However, today I was watching and it looks like a severe hurricane is hitting with 100 percent certainty.
Most important is for everyone to be safe! It looks like it could cause catastrophic damage and I wishfully hope this hurricane is tamer than expected.
I know it is somewhat selfish to say but I really want to go on vacation. We were due to travel from New Jersey Sunday morning and it is looking dismal that this will happen. My husband and I really need a vacation and some alone time. We set up child care six months ago and worked our vacation around everyone’s schedule. My mom is returning to her teaching job next week and will be unable to watch our kids any other time for the next year.
It is impossible for me to fly early as I have a full patient load on Saturday and can’t take the day off. The only option was the flight on Sunday.
My biggest prayer is for everyone to stay safe. It would be nice to still go, but I understand nature will take it course. If it is in the cards, we will go.
Will we go, will we not go? Only nature knows… Be safe everyone!!
