My kids are leaving the country

next week and anxiety is setting in deep.  It's just for 20 days and I know they will have a great time and enjoy getting to know their extended family over there...I just can't help the anxiety setting in on my heart.  It's partly because of the anger I still have towards their father (my ex-husband) so I know it's not fair for me to feel this way.  Anyway, just wanted to get it out (vent a little) to relieve some of the pressure.

Yikes, that's tough. I know you will miss them, but try to enjoy your alone time. Good luck :)

Personally I would never let my child leave the country without me, even that scares me especially if your ex is a jerk. Make sure you know the laws of that country. I'm not trying to scare you, just be careful.

He wasn't a jerk per say. He just had his priorities all in the wrong places and I finally just gave up on the marriage. He's a very good father, I'm not worried about that.  I've been there many times and I know my rights there and my current FIL has connections to the police and higher ups there, so again, I'm ok regarding those issues. My kids have a very large family over there and they need to know them, so, I can't deny them the right to have family.  I just don't want to let my babies go far from me :/

 Hugs !    I understand.    I would do my best to look at it as a time to pamper yourself.    Set up a day at the salon, indulge in some me time... nice bubble baths and take time to just relax.    They will be back before you know it.   :-)
