Thank God for Coffee

It's a wicked 4:20AM. I'm listening to the sounds of Jes showering, shaving, and packing for his business trip and reminded of the time we spend apart. Sometimes it's nice to have a little time away from each other, when you live together constantly, but during this very busy time in our lives it will be very difficult, for both of us. Me for the reasons I stated in my last post, he because he's away from his family, his wife and son. We'll have to lean on each other through the phone: late night conversations describing the latest toddler triumph, slowly giving way into our whispered plots and plans, until the tiredness gets in the way and we have to go to sleep, and we both go our separate ways--he back to work, me back to being a mom, both starting the process over, until he comes home. I'm thankful he doesn't travel often.
