So last night, I packed my little overnight bag and headed out with the girls to the MOPS Steering Retreat. One night in a cabin, we had 17 ladies last night and 14 stayed overnight until a little after lunch today. It was awesome! We had a great time laughing, crying, and sharing some things close to our hearts. Less than 24 hours, and it was so much more. Fast forward to dinner with my sweet family tonight. My oldest sweet child missed me so much that she couldn't contain herself and kept talking, interrupting me, her dad, her sister, and she only had about 3 bites of her dinner. The little one startes to argue with her sister, and all I know is that I am starving and I want to eat my dinner. My sweet hubby looks at me and says "Didn't you miss us?"
I can't really say that I missed anyone yet and the craziness that often accompanies mom coming home from a trip, makes me wish I was still at the un-air conditioned, old cabin with my best friends. Just one more night, mind you, I love my family. I just could have used a little bit of a longer break. :) I'll have to settle for steering meeting on Tuesday and wait one more month till Dallas.
