My Heart Is Elsewhere Today
Last night was the first night in 8.5 years that my little family all slept in different places. Big D of course was at college, I was home, and D was/is at a conference with work (until Saturday). We have spent only a handful of nights apart over our relationship, so it was weird to be in the house overnight by myself. I wasn’t sure what to do. I watched TV with the cat and just lazed around the house. It was so quiet!
Before I met D I basically lived alone for 5 years, so I have no problem being by myself – but man do I miss her! It took forever to fall asleep last night, and when I woke up this morning all I could think about was that there is only one more night before she comes home to me. We talked a few times yesterday when she had breaks and just before I went to bed. I didn’t tell her, but I was tearing up during that call. She called again at 7:00am today to say good morning. She had trouble sleeping too.
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but what does it do when your heart is already as fond as it can get for the person absent?
