I’m nervous and sad and excited and my eyes burn a little from crying but hey! at least I thought ahead enough to put makeup on after Jon took the kids to the pumpkin patch.

It’s been 5 years since I traveled by myself. It was a business trip for work and I was newly pregnant. I don’t like to travel much, and this trip will be a gauntlet of incidences of stepping out of comfort zones. But that’s good. It’s been easy to cocoon myself these past few years, and I need to actually do these things All. By. Myself once in a while.

I’m sure once I get there, though, I’ll be stoked. 8:00am-10:00pm every day discussing baby cookin’ and deliverin’? That is a comfort zone for me.

So wish me happy and safe thoughts, and miss me terribly. See you next Monday!
