On the plus side, as I'm here working on the paperwork for my lost luggage, I have things strewn around the desk and the floor without any worry that they are going to be eaten. I can devote as much time to whatever project I need to or want to. I've been trying out lyre techniques for the heck of it, preparing for my University class. I don't have to worry that I'm slacking on my parenting duties when I do so.
On the other hand, there's nobody to have the coffee ready in the morning, nobody to tuck me in at night, and it's just creepy to go by the nursery and know that it's empty.
It's nice to have the single life for a few days, but I think it's better to be reminded how blessed I am to have my family.
