The two week break-up

Me and my partner, we've been together for almost 13 years now and, during this very long period we've only been apart for 2 months. Those two horribly long months taught us that we cannot properly function when we have distance between us and so, we've concluded that we should avoid any unnecessary separations that might eventually occur. We've managed to stick with this resolution for 3 years now, unfortunately now we are again facing an inevitable separation.
Wednesday he will hop on a place to romantic Rome where he  will stay for two weeks at his son's house, enjoying the charming companionship of his  3 year old grand daughter, Sophie. I shall remain home alone enjoying my solitude, trying to write as much as I can and ...counting the minutes.

Bg hugs and I am sure the time will pass quicky for you

I'm sure the 2 weeks will fly right by. Until then, enjoy your "me" time. :)

Oh, my dear, I know exactly what you are feeling, been there done that, for too many times.
Make the most out of your "single lady" time and spoil us all with some of your exceptional posts :)

Hugs

As they say, absence makes the heart grow founder! Even though your relationship may not need to grow founder, think of how special it will be when he does return home! and I second what Petro said. Lovely picture of the two of you,
Hugs & Kisses,
Janet :)

Enjoy the alone time - tho I agree, 2 weeks might be too much...

Dear Petronela,

Apologies for not visiting your site recently. Unfortunately, I was stuck in a rather vulnerable position at the hospital and am only now recovering.

I know that the time apart from your partner will make the reunion all the more cherished. In the meantime, your positive distraction of writing shall get you through this. Be well and keep smiling.

Your friend,

Gary :)

My wife has been away since Monday on a school trip (she is a teaching assistant). Now regularly in the old days I went away for work for a week or so, but this is the first time ever it has been this way round. I've been left in charge of the house... it hasn't fallen down yet and is (reasonably) clean... :-)

Petronela, I hope the two weeks fly by quickly for you... I understand not wanting to be separated from who you love... try to enjoy a little solitude:)

Oh I'm sorry you will be separated for two weeks! I hope time passes fast for you. Though, I think it's wonderful that you miss each other after being together for 13 years!

Awww. That is lovely. Have as good a time as you can, and look after yourself in his absence. Sending hugs.

Oh Petronela, don't be sad. When I get that way, nothing helps better than a good book. Maybe you can try out new recipes to make him when he returns.

Kiss Kiss Kisses my hun. Sending out my rays of love.

I hope you find plenty to do while he's away.

ahh i agree with you. Exactly , those who truly loves, its very difficult to stay apart :)

But i must say its also necessary in a healthy relationship too, giving space to each other. Hopefully you will have some great ideas after your partner get back to celebrate...

Have a great weekend.

You know they say that absence make the heart grow fonder.. I really don't agree with that. I hate it when I am separated from my hubby as well.

Hugs~

It's hard to be separated from our dearest loved ones. I think that saying is true, though; Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I really think that's true. :)

I hope the two weeks go fast. Alone time can be great, but two weeks can feel long.
