I LOVE Going Away on Business Trips! 

Is it true for you?  Do you love going away for business?

This mom loves (LOVES!) going away on business trips and leaving her kids at home. She gets to stretch out on the hotel bed, enjoy her morning coffee in peace, and never has to watch cartoons! But, should she feel guilty for relishing her "me time?"

What is your favorite thing about going away on business? 

Do you feel guilty for enjoying time away from your family?

YES!  I get to stretch out on a hotel bed, watch whatever I want on tv, take as much time as I want to in the shower, and eat whatever I want all on someone else's dime!  It's the best!

I start to miss my kids and husband after 2 days, but the first 48 hours are blissful!

 I'm with you, after 2 days I'm ready to see the kids again.  But those first couple of days are SO wonderful.  lol!

I'm a SAHM, I don't go on business trips unless it's a weekend get-a-way to sleep with the boss. Haha! Only meant in humor. ;o)

BUT, I do love it when my husband goes on business. We aren't a clingy couple that has to have the other person next to us to sleep a good sleep. We love our space, we love a little time away from each other and for us, that is perfectly normal.

 I like them, but I usually have less time for Cafemom when I'm on one!

 I love getting away from the kids on business trips. And they're probably happy to get rid of me as well!
