And thus ends our Solo Adventures mini series because I am headed to the Philippines to find Mi Amor! I hope you enjoyed the "Things to do while he is not around" posts as much as I enjoyed making them. I feel a bit embarrassed admitting this, but I think blogging about my mini-Adventures helped me to stay focused and engaged despite Pablo's absence. People say "Distance makes the heart grow fonder" well, to be honest, I think that is a bunch of baloney. Distance usually makes me irritable and feisty, but if one good thing does come from sporadic absence from loved ones, it is (in my opinion) the acknowledgement of your own purposeful independence. So, after all of this, I am going to work harder to maintain and recognize this self-awareness even when he is around.
I will be back in a week, hopefully well-rested, relaxed, bronzed, and maybe just a little bit hung-over!
