This weekend I’m heading south of the border, the Canada/US border that is, with my friends M and R for a weekend of shopping at a huge outlet mall. I’m having mixed feelings about going. One, I really don’t have the money to go shopping (which kinda makes shopping not that much fun) and two, this is the first time I’ll be away from the kids for a whole weekend. The first time ever (just a reminder my kids are 13 and 15).
I’ve been away from them overnight a handful of times (like 5 or 6) in the last 6 years. I know I’m leaving them in good hands, Mike and mom will be taking care of them, but I’m still anxious about it.
Also, the new meds are still leaving me feeling groggy and foggy (even the kids’ dr commented on my lack of engagement yesterday). I’m afraid I won’t be as entertaining as my friends may be expecting.
Hopefully the stops at Bob Evans (we don’t have Bob Evans in Canada that I know of), Olive Garden (we don’t have one around here) and the Lindt outlet store will help me get over my worries.
