Today I decided to join Stephen on his road trip to Oshawa for work. I debated this the last two days. I really wanted to spend time with my husband and I knew it would have to involve a car trip. My anxiety was through the roof today. Not only am I anxious to be away from home on any given day, to be so far from the boys, I am anxious anytime I am in a car ESPECIALLY when it is raining and on the highway (which it was) so it was a nightmare. Add on top I am terrified about Tuesday and I was just a mess...many teary eyed moments today but I had some good talk time with the hubby which was really nice. It was a very boring trip, we were only there 3 hours and most of it was spent with Stephen running around working while I sat in the car but I actually had a relaxing time once we were there. I just opened the windows cranked the tunes and chilled enjoying the rain. On our way home I got to look at some really cool clouds, I saw a teddy bear an angel and a rainbow.
How could I forget, we also got some chocolate from Purdy's Chocolates....mint meltaways...mmmm....So yummy! The dangerous thing is I now know they are there so if Stephen has to head to Oshawa I may ask him to stop. So even though it wasn't the most memorable trip the important part was spending time with my husband and trying to keep my mind distracted from Tuesday.....it's not working that well but at least I was with my love all day, even if it was a boring work trip and we had to reschedule Ikea for a later date.
We are home now and my anxiety has settled down from being away from home and in a car, I still have a lot though about this week and everything that it will bring but tomorrow is another busy day with a date night dinner at Curry's, which I am really looking forward too, some new fish for our tank and switching my old phone for Stephens iphone. Monday should be a busy day at work but I fully do not expect to get much sleep that night, though sleep has never really been an issue for me. Even the night before Jacobs big day I still managed to sleep. I was up every two hours checking on him like I had been for the last 6 weeks (yes I will be like that this time too) but I still managed to get some decent sleep in. Speaking of sleep, I am exhausted so I am off to bed full of anxiety and mint chocolate.
