"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9

I have been having a hard few weeks. I have been extremely emotional. Every little thing has made me cry, I have felt like a failure as a mom and wife. I have felt overwhelmed by every aspect of my life from laundry, to Zoey, to keeping up with the house work. I have felt like I need a break from everything. This feeling of wanted to get away has not helped I feel like I should want to be with my kids but the truth is I have really been longing to get away.
Jon told me this week that we are going to go to St. Louis for a few days in October. I hesitantly asked if we were going to take the kids and he said well we don't have to. I am so excited and scared to I have never left the girls with anyone except for max four hours. It is a work trip for Jon so he keeps reminding me that he will have to spend some time with the client he is going to see. But still it will be fun.
One other thing is that this trip falls on the week of our four year anniversary.

I think every couple needs time away from their kids every now and then - so they can focus on each other and sort of get "refreshed". You definitely need a break! Mommy's don't get days off!! :)
How fun! We love St. Louis!

I hope you all have a great trip. Don't feel guilty about leaving the kids one bit! I know about needing those breaks from the kiddos! Believe me, you will come home loving your kids way more than if you took them with you. You deserve a kid-free vacation! - Go for it!
