Yesterday I took Mr S to the airport. He was headed to Idaho for a month.
A Whole Month!!
Now, I did sanction this trip (AKA...he asked me if I would be okay with him being gone that long before he committed to it).
What's really weird is that I'm usually a loner, anyway. I'm just used to having him around...to come home to, to share a bed with, to fight over the TV with.
Today was the first full day with out him. Honestly, it's all good. Nothing exciting happened.
And, to be honest, this isn't the first time we've been apart this long. He did a work trip last year for just as long. But I was able to go spend some time with him for the half of the first week, so it didn't seem so long. Finances won't allow that this time around.
Thankfully, since we're also moving next month (the week after he comes home we start the process), I have something to focus my time and energy on while he's gone. The plan is to have all the non-essential stuff packed up and ready to go.
We'll see how accomplished that plan is come February 13!
