A piece of my heart

TodayBrandon left for 2 weeks to do some training for his job in Illinois. I took him to the airport this morning came back home and layed in my empty bed when I realized that I MISSED HIM. I know how silly. He had only been gone for an hour and I already missed him. Then tonight after I put Jackson to bed I came into my bedroom and I had a thought. . .what am I suppose to do now? I miss Brandon. We have been married for over 3 years and have never spent more than 1 day apart. He is my best friend, my confidant, and the one I look to when I find something funny or something sad. He is my rock. I guess that is why I am taking Jack and going to Seattle for 2 weeks so that I don't think about missing Brandon every second of the day. Most people might think, yeah 2 weeks of freedom. But I think. . .where is my buddy? I hate being without him, even if it is only for a short while.

I know what you mean Jessica... With Gary gone so much its very hard to get into the habit of doing things on your own and only being able to talk to them over the phone! But that's why I am so lucky that I have wonderful friends like you to get me through the weeks/months away from him! xoxo!!!

Sorry ladies. I have to go the other way. I think it might be because Jimmy works from home and we see each other like 18 hours a day that I actually enjoy some time to myself. When he goes away I don't have anyone asking me what am I doing today, and when am I going to the gym/grocery shopping/cleaning etc. I dont have to worry that he might feel neglected if I want to watch the two hour finale of The Bachelorette (which ROCKED by the way). I can just be lazy if I want stay up late if I want, spend the whole day on my computer etc. and no one can point out how that might not be a great idea. But I do feel like I am married to my best friend too, I just feel like imagine you and your best friend literally being together ALL the time, and you might like some time to yourself again too. LOL Perhaps I shall learn to appreciate his presence more in light of you ladies and your thoughts. ;)

I totally understand Jess. The longest I've ever been away from Nate was for a week and it was awful. We at least got to talk on the phone every day at least once. But then this last week he was at scout camp for 3 days without cell phone service and it seemed like forever. I've never gone that long without at least talking to him. Anyway, I hope that you are having so much fun in Seattle though and I'm glad you went. It's always easier when you are busy and your mind is occupied.
