Yesterday my wife and three boys left for San Diego to house sit her sister’s house while they’re away (and to have a nice, southern California, lazy, beach summer vacation). I knew the trip was coming, but it wasn’t until earlier this week that I realized that they’d be gone for 16 days before I see them again.
The initial emotion was sadness, but it was quickly followed up by excitement and anticipation. Think about the potential! I can do so much more work!
