I definitely started my weekend off with a bang this past Friday. Every year my daughter goes home to our native state Connecticut to visit with her family.
Usually this would include a three hour drive; however this time the difference is we are more than 17 hours away from Connecticut so she had to take to a flight. This was her first time flying as an unattended minor so you have to understand how my anxiety was through the roof.
I got up at the crack of dawn to make sure that she was finished being packed up and we headed to the airport early in the morning to beat the Atlanta traffic.
After entering the airport on international side only to be told that we had gone to the wrong side, they still processed her information. Next up; stripping practically naked we made it through security, only to have her Noxema confiscated, we hopped on the train shuttle and headed to the correct gate for her departure.
I met her flight attendant babysitter and watched tearfully as my child entered the plane without me. I’m so used to her traveling to Connecticut with her grandmother but this is a first for me and it was definitely a first for her and we both tearfully hugged goodbye.
Even though she consistently works my nerves and I’m constantly trying not to pull my hair out I still will miss her. My kids are definitely my life and when they are absent I feel it.
I then rushed from the airport to drop my husband off to work and make it to my oral surgery as fast as I could.
In a nutshell, I had 7 teeth removed; four of which were wisdom teeth and an abscess that had to be drained from below the gum line. Needless to say it feels as if my face has been hit by a Mack truck.
I’m on a slew of medications, mostly antibiotics and Percocets. Cheers right? I fully intend to sleep the rest of this weekend and enjoy the time I have with my son while he’s on Xmas break. What are you other mom’s up to this weekend?
