Pining for Rob
I talked to Rob very briefly tonight.Â The area he’s in gets spotty cellphone coverage, at best, so I’ve had one text message from him, but otherwise it’s been radio silence.Â He found a place tonight where, if he didn’t turn his head, I could hear him.Â le sigh. I miss him.
Which is absurd, when you think about it. I mean, I worked in Iceland for six months without him.Â For the first three years of our marriage we spent about half of it apart due to our varying schedules. Being separated is not a new thing.
But, it’s the first time I’ve been alone in the apartment without him and all the near misses of our schedule for the next month are comic.
We just had the realization that even if I take the last train from NYC to Boston, it will still depart before he arrives back from the film shoot.Â So now I’m trying to decide if I want to take an early train on Friday or just give in and go up Thursday without seeing Rob.Â I say again, le sigh.
