Chewy took today off so we could just relax a little before he goes on his business trip. Tomorrow we will start seriously packing him up; Friday evening he leaves.
While I am used to his wacky hours and being the main parent at home during the week, both of us are experiencing anxiety about this coming week.

While he has been having some long hours the last month, he has still been within reach (not to mention he has usually given me a break during the weekends). After Friday, he will be 7 hours ahead of me. He has been on business trips before, so I know the drill. However, this is going to be the first time soooo far away and first time with Willow too.

--Buffy marathon with the boy
--Frequent Skyping with Chewy for all our sanities
--IMs and emails to that guy I love
