Leaving my girls for two weeks, nervous.

I'm going on vacation on September 1st through the 13th, to Korea with my boyfriend, and I'm SOOO so so excited. But I'm so sad/nervous about leaving my horses! They are at a self-care private barn, I do everything. I have four horse friends feeding for me. I have plenty of hay and grain, empty milk jugs full of water [in case the pipes freeze/water gets turned off], a decent first aid "kit" [Bute, Equi-Spirin, Neosporin, liniment, betadine, gauze, vet wrap, cotton, no-bow wraps, ice packs, Nu-Stock], a partially bedded stall and an un-opened bag of bedding [in case someone needs to be stalled], all my extra halters and leads out, the number for vets 1, 2, and 3, and the farrier, and a CareCredit account in case something comes up. Can you see I'm being a touch paranoid? Haha. They are in good hands, I know that, but gosh, I'm really going to miss my babies!

Sorry, just had to vent/talk about it. =]

I know how you feel. Whenever I go away on vacation, I am convinced that something bad is going to happen to Spike. Nothing has happened in 15 years, but this time it might!! So I always leave multiple phone numbers and instructions to the BO, who just rolls his eyes and says yes, he can handle it.
Not much different than leaving your kids for 2 weeks. Because these girls are your first babies! So try not to worry about them, they will be fine. Have fun! :)
