Have I told you that I'm going away for a week? WITH NO EZRA? It's true.
My mother is flying in tomorrow evening, and Chris and I leave for North Carolina early the next morning. (Flight leaves at 6:30AM. OUCH.) We will be leading worship at a Summer Camp out there and will be gone for seven days. My mom will be hanging out at our house here in Oklahoma to take care of Ezra. For SEVEN DAYS.
I feel very excited about this, but the second my thoughts stray to actually leaving my boy on the ground while Chris and I fly away in an airplane makes me feel sick to my stomach. The last time we left Ezra was when Chris and I went to Atlanta to lead worship over New Years at Passion. When we pulled out of the driveway of my parent's house to go to the airport, Ezra was in my mom's arms... crying his face off and looking confused. I swallowed a lump in my throat and tried not to lose it the whole car ride. It took a good two days of our trip to recover from that parting.
I know Ezra is going to be perfectly fine... probably way more fine than when he's with me... but I'm just going to miss him. He has been so pleasant and funny and sweet the last couple of weeks- it's probably the first time in the past two years that I haven't been itching for a little break, a getaway.
But, I know the time in NC will be so much easier and much more relaxing without an overheated toddler demanding my attention 24-7. I will get to meet some awesome high school kids and sing my heart out. I will get some alone time to write. I will get to eat camp food. Mmmmm.
I have no idea what the communications will be like once we get there. If I am able to send you updates (possibly through Morse Code?) I will do it. Just get to your nearest HAM radio and prepare for indefinite standby. Mmm kay?
PS. You know what I discovered at Target yesterday? They make mini wifebeater tank tops for kids! I have seen the light!
Although, yesterday, Ezra came into the office and had somehow managed to become TANGLED in his tank top straps. I almost peed from laughing so hard.
