The kids and I have been without Handsome now for almost two weeks. And in almost every way it really stinks.
But. In one very small way, it’s been quite good. Because he’s not here, I can pretend that I’m on a holiday. I have visited my parents alone with children twice before. So I can use this time to pretend that I’m on holiday, enjoying having someone else do the laundry, the weekly housecleaner, using someone else’s petrol, the perpetually packed pantry. It’s nice
Of course I would trade it all in a heartbeat to have Handsome here.
