oh and frustrated, but I’ll get that in a minute.
I dropped the boy off at the airport this morning for his flight to China. I’m going to be all alone for two weeks, I’ve only been alone for an hour and I’m already bored and lonely. I didn’t last long did I? The funny thing is, I’ve been alone for much longer and thought nothing of it. All of grad school was basically alone time, I was just too busy to notice he wasn’t there. For the last year I got used to him waking me up before work and knowing the exact time he was coming back. I like knowing he’s home, even if I’m ignoring him with my knitting or he’s ignoring me with his video games. Who else am I going to watch all our shows with for the next two weeks? Who am I going to bug and make fun of? I have this fear that my sleeping schedule is going to be totally off (he’s the one that “decides” when bedtime is) and that I’ll forget to cook or eat. Can someone remind me to eat?
I should be going to Japan in two weeks and meeting Tom in Tokyo. Notice I said should? Our tickets got totally messed up by the travel agent, he booked me going to Tokyo while Tom is in China and I would be coming back to the states when Tom would be flying to Tokyo. WTF I was going to try and get it fixed, but it’s been such a hassle dealing with the travel agent. We are postponing Tokyo till later in the year or in the spring and instead taking a week to drive somewhere (Tom definately doesn’t want to fly after he comes back). The top contenders right now are Boston and Providence, any suggestions on what to do in either city?
ps Tom took the camera with him, so I’ll be pictureless for a while. Don’t hate me!
pps I started the dentist’s sock and have no way in knowing if it’s right or not : )
