BUT, in happier news: this is the weekend of bachelorette party debauchery at the beach! This is both good and bad, because while I am looking very forward to a break from life, it is also the first time l will ever be away from my Pookie. It isn't like I'm boarding her at the vet, of course; her dad is taking her to his parents' house for a weekend with the family, and I'm sure that everything will be fine.
It's just that I will miss her so much. For almost a year I haven't slept without her right there beside me, and she has never known a night where she couldn't just roll over and snuggle with mommy. I know she can snuggle with daddy and that he will be there with a bottle of milk and a paci and a rocking chair when she cries, I'm just sad I won't be there for her.
I've told the other girls on this trip that they have to keep me busy and keep my mind off how much I miss her. They seem to be up to the challenge.
