Leaving on a BUSINESS TRIP

A few weeks ago I was talking on the phone to Dub.
It was the end of his work day, and he was standing on the beach in Florida.
He asked me if I could hear the surf through the phone.
I told him I wanted to go away on a business trip.

I asked, he DELIVERED.
This afternoon he is going to meet me on the beach.
He'll be working at the temple all morning, and the kids and I will be playing in the surf.
He's going to hand me a folder, a map and the keys to the car.
I'm going to "hand" him the kids and the keys to the van.
And I'll be OFF!  On my first-ever business trip.
He's going to pick up where I leave off, and be the Man Mom of the house while I'm away on business.
(Is he the best-ever, or WHAT?!)
Destination?  Unknown.
He's put together a surprise weekend for ME.
I don't come back until later on Sunday.
I can't wait to take care of some business.
I love that man.

Becky, it's really just for Jenny. I know that she is going to have a super wonderful time, too!

Ellen--it's not anywhere near Worcester, either.

Have a fantastic time, Jenny. Lots of love. Aunt Shirley

Yet another reason why I (and Aaron) have man-crushes on the Dub. What a stud!
