Coffee Shop Confessions: Do you secretly enjoy going away on business trips?

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

The first day of a business trip is wonderful.  A bed to myself, not having to share the bathroom, and the most wonderful  thing...an uninterrupted shower!  Then, not dinner preparation, and no homework to check. Then I start feeling lonely.  It actually gets to quiet for me!

I do but this past summer got to be too much.  I traveled every other week somewhere,  Since I am pregnant now it has slowed down but I am starting to look forward to them again.

 That would definitely be too much in my opinion... once or twice a year is perfect.
