After some impulsive planning and inviting myself into my cousin's roadtrip, I get to go visit my family ALL ON MY OWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't gone anywhere sans husband or kids in over 8 1/2 years.

That's almost a decade. (we're rounding up, ok?)

And I get to leave in like 15 minutes!!!!!!!!

Do I need to tell you that I'm excited or do the multiple exclamation points make that clear enough?

Okay, Melissa. I've been HOPING you would get a break every since you mentioned months ago never having gotten away and since even before that when I found out that you have 12 kids all age 5 and under (or something like that). And ESPECIALLY after the post where you were talking about going away with your (was it mom and sisters or something?) and I was SO excited for you until you said you were lying and I was mad. Because I really wanted you to get away.

I know it wasn't some lengthy exotic vacation, but I hope it was nice to feel like Melissa for a while and not just mommy. Did it help you feel your own identity a bit?
