Lawrence has been away on a business trip since last Monday. He doesn’t get back until this weekend. While I miss him dearly…strangely, we’ve both been very efficient while he’s been gone. I’ve accomplished a lot with wedding planning, and have gotten loads of work done. I’ve also been cleaning our condo, sifting through bills and old mail, and clipping coupons (how domestic of me). And he’s been a machine over in Ohio pumping out his work and finishing up some accounting schoolwork he needed to get done. We’ve been like that “power couple” that rarely sees each other and counts text messages and phone calls as meaningful communication.
While I would hate for things to go on like this, (i.e. living apart, sleeping apart, you get the picture…) I have been amazed at how much is getting done. The other day it caused my mind to wander to strange places. If we lived separately, would we individually be that much more efficient? I’m baffled because we’ve been together for nearly 6 years. We aren’t in that honeymoon phase anymore. And it’s not like we sit around like slugs whenever we are together at home. But apparently we must waste a lot of time and I’m not consciously aware of it.
Do you ever feel like this? Or are we just weirdos? (Don’t answer that!) 🙂
