Their things are all packed and placed accordingly on their beds. I left the clothes and toys that I would want to bring on vacation with us together in one box on top of it all. Should I get a miraculous phone call tomorrow I could easily get Dude and Dolly (physically) ready for a vacation.
I'm torn though. As much as I want this to be over...as much as I do want them back in my home...I can't imagine the fall-out that I'll face should they come back before I leave. I would delay the departure a day or two I'm sure. But plans have been put in place that I do have to have my kids in Iowa for so we'd have to leave soon. Can you imagine what two preschoolers will act like after trauma like this?! I know it would not make for the most pleasant of vacations overall.
I'm ready either way though. I'm as ready as I can be.
