Silver Lining List
I'll get him back for my brother's wedding, then he'll be gone for two weeks again, then I'll get him back for a weekend, then gone, then I finally get him back at the very end of July.
Of course he's never been away from me for longer than a week or so, and this all makes me terribly sad.
I like the kid, and I already miss him.
To trick myself, I've made a Silver Lining List, of things to look forward to to keep from being sad:
-I won't have to cook dinner when I don't feel like it.
-Laundry will be halved (his clothes are smaller, but he goes through more of them).
-I can use his absence to do really well in school, pack for my upcoming move, get rid of some of his broken toys and too-small clothes, etc.
-I can wake up later in the mornings.
-I can sleep naked.
-I can cuss however much I want.
-I can watch R-rated movies.
I need a heck of a lot of things, to bolster my spirits and dull the pain a bit.
