I sat on the Virgin America flight for nearly two hours, boucing between sleep and glazed eyes watching the movie previews on the tv in front of me. I couldn’t believe how much I already missed my four year old who I haven’t been away from for more than three days in the past nineteen months. I’ll be away from her for six days this trip and I’m sure it will feel like more of an eternity for me than to her. I worry about her constantly. Is she ok? Is she happy? Has she had enough food? Is she warm enough? And these are my worries when I’m in the same city as her! I am so blessed to have found such a good school for her, a school that can warm a lunch we pack for her daily, a school that sends us daily updates on if she ate her lunch and snacks, and even sends us a photo of her with the updates, which will really come in handy for me, being away. I’ll get to see how her dad dressed her and if he did her hair or not. I am laughing to myself just thinking about how much of a tom boy she’ll probably be this week, even though she is such a girly girl.
I am super excited to have a little time away though, to be able to have a drink at night and not have to wake up at the crack of dawn with her for a couple days. I’m relieved to have some adult time with my sister and a few friends I see less and less as the years go by. I’m thankful to be visiting New York City, a city so magical this time of year. I’m nervous about keeping warm enough. I’m excited to have potentially huge meetings with one talent booking agency and one record label about digital sales processing for their digital content.
It is times like these that I reflect on MySurreaLife. How blessed I am to literally have everything I’ve ever wanted. I have a beautiful little girl who could not be more fun to be around, I have a great family, an amazing group of friends who are essentially family.
