This is where we're going - in 4 sleeps! Just Dwayne and I.
I had a babysitter all lined up - a place where they would have more fun than they do at home. It was lined up, until I got a call this afternoon. Our babysitter's mom passed away unexpectedly. (Please pray for her family)..
I panicked. What now?
I called a friend and we talked about possible sitters. A wonderful woman from our church who has young grandchildren and the energy to go with them came up in the conversation so I gave her a call.
Me: "Hi, it's Amy. We're going to ______ (fill in the blank with our tropical destination) and my babysitter's mother passed away. I was wondering if you might like to babysit for me."
Mrs. W: "I'd love to!"
Me: *She must not have heard me properly.* "We're going to ______. We'll be gone 9 nights."
Mrs. W: "I'd love to! When are you leaving?"
Me: *meakly* "Sunday."
Mrs. W: "Sounds good."
WHAT? Are you kiddin' me?
tearful freakout small panic, I was again in a position where I could breathe properly. Thank you Mrs. W! (And the children are going to love it just as much as the other place!)
Shucks, I almost forgot...I have a small prize for anyone who can correctly guess our vacation destination.
