4 days

I so needed this.

I am sitting in the airport in Orlando with a vanilla latte, I'm tired but feeling good. Being a trauma mama wears me down and I really needed this break.

In a few short hours I will be home where I will spend the rest of the week dealing with a boy or two who are pissed that I left at all. P was great and handled them well even though Calvin refused to behave appropriately.

I have nothing profound or life changing to tell you in this moment. I travelled, I met great women, I laughed, I cried, I danced on a table and now I am going home. I will not be dancing on any tables when I get there but I will remember that there are other mamas who get it, others who have my back and are holding my hand and that will keep me going till I can get another break because I am not alone.

I'm glad it was helpful. We all need a break from time to time. And I hope your week goes better than you think it will.

I have told everyone at home about my "Canadian Twin"! I am contemplating a trip north this summer ;) But if you ever make it this side of the border let me know!!! We don't have to dance on tables.

I am so happy I was FINALLY able to meet you, hug you, talk with you. It will NOT be the last time.
The gift of coffee was so huge and will NOT be forgotten. Ever.
Love you!

I still quite excited about the idea of communal living...I can't live without you and the other 66 t/m of our little world!

I am still processing our time in Orlando. I cannot believe I finally got to hug you--so many times--and the gift of coffee pretty much made you my favorite trauma mama in the world (shhh...don't tell the others!)
Huge virtual hugs, Dia
