NYC or bust!

That's right everyone! I am breaking free, cutting the cord, getting away! What? You don't believe me! I understand there is plenty of reason for you to be in disbelief. Yeah I know...the fact that I haven't left any of my small children for longer than 1 night EVER! And if I were to total up those "one nights" on my hands, I would not run out of fingers to count on!
I am perfectly ok with this. This is how I am. It's just not in me to up and leave without them. I enjoy having them around as much as I enjoy doing things with them. I don't know what came first though, my inability to leave them or knowing how much fun it is to have them with. Either way...they have me wrapped around their tiny little fingers.
HOWEVER, all of that said. I am leaving in less than 2 weeks for approximately 72 hours. You heard me...a whopping 72 hours! I AM TERRIFIED!
I am not scared about what they might do without me, as I know my husband will have things planned (or not) and they will have an amazing time together. My household will not fall apart as my husband is as much (if not more) of a neat freak than I. There are certain "orders of business" than will wait for me like laundry, bills, mail organizing and what not. But....that is right...it can wait!
One thing that does worry me about leaving home is the fact that I still have a baby (ok ok I know...she's 10 mos. old now, but she's still my baby) who still utilizes me as a food source. She isn't concerned that she is 10 mos. old and eats plenty of solid food; she still prefers to utilize me, at times, as many as 8 times a day. However, I am comforted knowing that there are times that her and I commune only 2 or 3 times a day. So...with all of that said, I am sure she will be fine (it's really me that I am worried about)!
I digress.
NYC or bust! Two of my sisters and I will be driving to New York (Even more reason for me to panic...16 hours to get somewhere...and it's NOT Australia!) where we will have the opportunity to meet with a Representative of a fabric company I am drooling to partner with. This will be mostly business as it will take a great deal of time just traveling to and fro, but Sunday should be our day to explore. I am longing to take a jog somewhere in the city, as well as see a few sights (which for me means eating some great food also). We are staying with some friends of my sister Ashley's (with whom I hope I can safely call my friends also). They are residents of the City.
This is my first trip to the City. It also my youngest sister, Regi's first trip. She is an artist and longs to go to NY. She is probably ready to leave as we speak.
I am sure in the days to come I will post more about my pathetic feelings about leaving for a whole 72 hours...but for now, this is it!

You seriously have no idea how utterly beautiful the whole atmosphere of NYC is! Oh, I would drop all two and .5 of my kids to jump at the chance of going back there. OK, I have alterior motives (to really just drop the .5!! hehe) You will LOVE it

Ohhhh, I love NYC! Hubby surprised me a few years ago with a week trip. So fun! YOu'll really enjoy it, and I know you and the kids will do just fine.

BTW, i just noticed your twitter about Tarzan. What!?! I don't even know how the CD got into our house, but Eva dances to it almost every morning. She is obsessed! That is so funny that your kids like it too!

I CANNOT wait...I only wish I had more time (well maybe I do have more....or maybe Ash doesn't...or maybe I am just not sure I could stand to be away any longer)!!!
