Though I love being a Mom and wife the one thing I can't stand is house work. All day laundry and cleaning. Especially since I will be leaving on Friday to CHA. I love going to these trade shows and have some time to myself (even though I am working), but along with that comes a little bit of guilt about leaving the family. This will be my 6th trip to a trade show and yes...the family has survived each trip, but I still worry about homework getting done, clean clothes and them getting picked up on time from school.
So I am off to do my 4th load of laundry today. The good thing is that the girls are older now and a big help. Chelsea is driving so that helps Gary out with the picking up part and Tori make sure that Weston is ready for school each morning. I am so glad that I am raising independent and self sufficient women.
I talked Gary into dinner out at our favorite Thai place and tomorrow I finish up some cleaning (cause I like to leave the house clean when I go away, even though I know when I get back the kids and Gary will have trashed the place) and get my packing done. I will be gone from Friday until next Thursday, Feb. 1st so there will be no post until I return from CHA and share all the wonderful things that will be coming out. Have a wonderful week everyone.
