I’ve been fortunate so far in being able to avoid traveling for work since my oldest was born. But that will likely change next week, when I will probably have to go out of town for a night. My husband and I generally handle bath time, book time and bed time together. So I have no worries about leaving him to be responsible for the kids while I’m gone. Heck, he’s better at all of those things than I am.
And although I’ll miss my family while I’m gone, I’ll be gone for such a short time that I can’t help but think how refreshing it will be to get a full, uninterrupted night of sleep.
What I find myself dwelling on is the disruption to our daily routine, especially my daily routine. So my question to all of you seasoned travelers (and wives and husbands of seasoned travelers) is this: How do you handle the disruption?
