Back in the driver seat

Oh my. Oh oh oh my.

In two days I will leave to go to Italy for work. This will be the first time that I will be separated from my Baby in almost 14 months. I have not been away from her longer than 6 hours in a row. And Thursday I will leave for 3 days. Oh my.

I will be in the jury for our event called Teamwork in Action. The top 10 teams from our manufacturing plants will present their cost improvement projects, but not in a powerpoint presentation. Instead they will perform it as a theater play or a musical. There will be costumes, laughter, a lot of languages and loud loud music. I am so looking forward to this. My first trip in such a long time. Having spent the past three work years 50% in the US and 50% over here, I am so addicted to being on an airplane.

And at the same time I can't believe not seeing the baby girl for such a long time. But it will be a good distraction. And Daddy and Baby will do just fine. No real worries. Just a few.

    The trip sounds busy and in no time at all you will be home. A small break is good for everyone, I promise :-)

    I hear you!!! It is so hard to leave the baby for a few DAYS! But your work trip sounds like it will be action-packed and a lot of fun! Time will fly by and you'll be back home again. And a trip to ITALY, oh you lucky girl!

    Ooh, Italy. I hope you have a chance to enjoy. And you know that babe will be just fine with dad. You may even end up enjoying yourself. Just remember to go with it and leave the anxiety back in Germany. :)

    Have a really great trip! I love the idea of staging your presentations - brilliant! Are you taking part in one? Hope you manage to leave your worries at home but I imagine it must be very hard to be away from the wee one.
