It's July 2nd. Happy Canada Day, yesterday. I can't sleep. I think I'm anxious about Brent going away for six months, because my fingernails are all gone and I'm weepy, and of course I can't sleep. Until now I've been able to stave off this anxiety, or at least bury it beneath layers of home life and work life and a wee bit of friend life, but up here in relaxation land (my parent's place) it is catching up with me. I don't want him to go! I love him, I enjoy his company, I find his presence comforting. Being away from each other is going to suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Can I make it? What if I fail? Am I strong enough? I must be, I come from a long line of strong Reside women. Still it will be tough.
