this is me right now:
this is me worrying about my first overnight trip away from izzy. this is me having a stomach ache because i am afraid i will miss something. this is me already trying to plan the return trip home so i can get back as soon as possible but not seem like an obsessive freak to my friend i will be road tripping with. this is me, freaking the F out over something i should be excited about.
I am taking a road trip to hershey, pa with one of my closest friends, kiely, to see one of our favorite artists, ben folds. i am not at all worried about taking a road trip with kiely. heck, we survived the hell beast together (a nasty, nasty freak of a housemate). we can survive anything together – even a road trip. maybe.
will she be able to sense my freaking out? probably. will she tolerate it? boy,do i hope so.
izzy will be fine. i know this to be a fact. she is in the hands of her very capable father. but i swear if she has some kind of major milestone while i am gone like pooping in the potty or writing her first haiku, i swear to you i will drown in a river of tears and never leave the house without her again.
i am trying to get excited about this trip. i love ben and as an added bonus katie miller-heidke will be there too! My friend has helped to get me a little excited at the prospect of Ben doing chatroulette while on stage. He did it at a show in North Carolina. it was pretty much the most awesome thing ever.
so wish me luck. i know izzy will survive…but will i?
