My boyfriend left for Seoul this afternoon.

My boyfriend left for Seoul this afternoon. He will be there on a work assignment for the rest of the fiscal quarter. I didn’t cry at the airport (or yet). Then again, it’s been less than twelve hours since I saw him off at the security gate (and he hasn’t even arrived in South Korea).

Our little one bedroom apartment seems bigger. It seems quieter, too — although, Ceddy is only loud when he’s playing FIFA on Xbox. His desk is still a mess from his hurried packing this morning. I’ve got my laptop and extra pillows on his side of the bed, so his absence is less obvious (not that it works).

On the bright side, I can drink Jim Beam on the rocks and Ceddy won’t say it tastes horrible — like college and disappointment.

There are many things I want to express, but there’s an inverse relationship between the ratio of bourbon consumed to number of phrases I can articulate.

  1. It’s so hard when your man leaves. I’m always a mess when I say goodbye. But once I have a good cry, I can then get on with things. It sounds pathetic, but I cried when the hubs went to Canada for 10 days. My mind naturally tends toward the morbid and I think, “What if this is the last time I’ll ever see him?” (Sorry, that’s probably not helping…) But then we skype and everything is ok.

    We’ve been together for almost 9 years and I hope that I always cry when he leaves. I never want to get to the point where I’m not sad if he’s not around. When we’re apart it makes us realise how much we take each other for granted so when we’re back together our relationship improves big time.

    Also, I’m always excited for him when he’s on his adventure. But as for me, I skip the bourbon and head straight for the cheesecake.


    • I agree! It is hard whenever either of us leave. LOL — I’ve had to reprogram my brain to not go into morbid territory like that, so I know how that is. πŸ˜€ Cheesecake does sound like a good idea…


    • Thanks so much! πŸ™‚ Yes, until the end of the year. He’s going to be back in January. 😦 It’s not as bad as his overseas assignment last year, though — he was in Ireland for four months, then we went on a trip together afterward.
