One of the downsides of Ian’s job is travel. At the drop of a hat he can be rushing off to the airport, leaving me behind for an unknown period of time. I am someone who likes order and routines, so this new lifestyle has been a hard adjustment. After spending last week in Texas I was foolish enough to think that I would have him home this week, but as life would have it, he was called away on another assignment. This has pushed me out of my comfort zone and I have been forced to exert my independence and enjoy my alone time. While I don’t mind grabbing drinks with the girls after work or hitting the gym solo, I can’t deny that I miss having my best friend around.
