Girl Time

Hubby is leaving on Friday for his annual 'Boys Weekend' with friends. Each year they try to get together and go on 2 trips - a shorter long weekend trip and then a longer one somewhere tropical. They've been to Puerto Rico, Rio de Janeiro and this year they are slated to go to the Dominican Republic. Anyway, this weekend is their long weekend/basketball/dominoes/Superbowl extravaganza. I think it's great that they make time to hang out with each other and that hubby gets his "man time."

But...that leaves the girls and I at home for 4 days without Daddy's help! I'm tired just thinking about it. Especially since I'm really feeling the pregnancy fatigue (and pelvic/hip pain!) these days. It'll all be just fine, I know. I'm gonna try to plan something special for us to do on the weekend because us girls just wanna have fun too!

Ouch, the pelvic pain. I remember those days. Reason # 32 as to why I will not have any more kids:)

Re: your girl weekend, I say keep them out of the house as much as possible. Bring them home when it's nap time, take them back out for dinner (or order pizza) and tell Hubby to expect to come home to a messy house. If you keep your standards for yourself low, you won't feel disappointed or stressed and the weekend will go that much better. Enjoy the girls!!

You should take a girls weekend (kids optional) the weekend after each of his boys weekend.

In the meantime I'm a big fan of the fake 5 minute vacations...I never was before but now I'm turning into a travelblog (and any kind of sanity helping blog addict)
Go Girlfriend
Intelligent Travel and
Gwen World seem to be what get me through the day.

I feel your pain. (Except for the pregnancy part.) Hang tough and good luck!

I love Justice Jones' suggestion.

Ouch, I remember the pelvic/hip pain too.
