Ok...so I am in the very beginning stages of divorce and while doing that, I am trying to "find myself" again. I have been married for 10 years and have never spent a night away from my kids. Part of me renewing who I am as a person is realizing that I'm not just "Mom". I am a woman, a friend and will be a lover again sometime hopefully. I'm trying to get in touch with all of those parts of myself that I've lost over the years.
Next weekend my friends want to surprise me (not sure how yet), but I am going to be sans kids for three and a half days. I have never spent one night without them and am hesitant and scared to leave them. It's not like they're babies either. They are 5 and 7. My husband, soon to be ex will be taking care of them during this time and is fine with it. It's me that is having anxiety issues.
I plan on having fun and want to enjoy myself, but how?
