You would think I would be estatic but I have mixed feelings

Dh & I are close friends with another couple who have a 10yo son. One of the parents has serious medical issues. They had a family cruise scheduled to the Bahamas. The parent without medical issues can not go now do to a great job opportunity. The parents don't really feel safe with just the other parent and child going in case something medically happens to the parent. They offered, and after much consideration, I accepted to go.

Now, dh will be home this week, working overtime, to pay for 2 other cruises we have booked in the Winter. This will be the first time I have ever travel without him and the first time we have been apart for more then 5 days.

I am having mixed feelings about going. Ugh...

 I think you will have a great time. I am sure they appreciate that you accepted. Are you going with the other parent?

Well it sounds like you're going as a favor and to help if anything medical happens. Just go and try to have fun, it's not like a huge pleasure cruise you're taking without your dh.

Yes...It will be the parent with medical issues, the son and me. This couple actually asked dh & I a month ago if the coupld designate dh & I as guardian of their son, should something happen to them.

 thats nice of them :) go and enjoy your time apart from your spouse, this is always a good thing specially because he will miss you ;)

is the parent thats going the mom or the dad of the child?  because if its the dad I would understand feeling a little uncomfortable, but its not a big deal and if its the mom then you girls can have a ball! :)

I hope you will have a good time.  It's tough to leave DH but when you return it will be nice to have that reconnection time.
