Taking It Easy for 66 Days

Thursday, September 01, 2011

I skipped another workout today, it has been no gym four days in a row.

It’s not like I didn’t plan to go to the gym today - I DID get up at 5am and DID put on my workout clothes, but just when I was on my way out, I couldn’t help but to check on Zac. A brief visit turned into a sleep over – I lied next to his crib and watched my baby sleep.

Zack is leaving in 2 months (66 days to be exact). He will be on a "roadshow" to China with Grandpa and Grandma for 5 months (144 days to be exact) and spending a lot quality time with his far-east relatives and little cousins.

I miss him already and I want to spend every waking (or sleeping) minute with him. I want to hold him whenever I can. So what if I skip a workout or two, or three, or four, I have 144 days ahead of me to make up for the lost workouts. I have 144 days filled with emptiness that I need to keep myself occupied, 144 days filled with hope and plan for when he comes back.

Will he still remember me? Will he still be happy to see me when I come home from work? Will he still let me hold him?

I have a feeling that 144 days will feel like a life long wait.

    I don't blame you, I'd want to be with my baby all the time too if he was going to be away for 5 months. Why does he have to be away for that long?

    OMG he's going for 5 months? Why? I mean I understand his grandparents are taking him to see relatives, but for FIVE months? OMG girlfriend you are braver than I am, I don't know if I could be away from my child that long (granted I don't have children, but still). I hope everything is ok. Let me know if you need to chat. You've always got my support when he's gone (and even when he's here).
