So, my sister Sara called today and is flying me up to watch my 3 little nephews while she has a starring role in an opera The Legend of Poker Alice. I'll be in Seattle for 3 weeks with Jonah, both of us away from Derek. That's the longest I've been away from him since we've been married. The last time before that was while he was away at CCV for Boy Scout Camp. I'm excited to go up, be with my sister, see my friends who I haven't seen in a very long time, but it won't make up for missing time with Derek. I just hope he isn't too lonely while I'm gone, because I know I'll be lonely without him.
