I dropped off my family at the train station today. They caught a bus to Logan, then a flight to Milan, and in a few minutes they’ll meet my in-laws for the trip to Switzerland. I did well not to cry until I was back in the parking lot! (Particularly after my daughter asked if her dad was going to give her “extra hugs and kisses” since I wasn’t coming with them.) I haven’t been away from my kids for more than three days since they were born, but somehow I need to get through the next three WEEKS without them! I spent the afternoon and evening moving furniture and organizing, busy things just to keep distracted! Just imagine the damage I can do in the coming weeks!
