Just saw my husband off. He's on his way back to the Netherlands. I'm off to Qatar on Sunday, making a trip through Copenhagen first. We're hoping that we'll get to see each other for Christmas - either in DK or in Qatar or in somewhere in between.
This time watching him leave today was much harder than 8 weeks ago.
1) Last time I knew exactly when I'd see him again (give or take 24 hours, as it turned out)
2) Today I have PMS
It's completely unfair to have PMS when your loved one leaves. Especially when you are prone to weepiness and melancholia. At least I won't be laid low by cramps until at least Thursday. My stomach is upset enough with stress and dismay as it is.
I'm certainly going to write a strongly worded letter to my congressman.
Just as soon as my heart stops going plop-a-thump, my stomach unclenches, and I can stop grinding my teeth.
