Looks like it is time to return to reality. I am sitting in the B&B in Mobile, Alabama, preparing for my last two meetings, and thinking about all I have to do when I get back.
Which is - nothing.
I think this week was good for me. Time to think only about work, and where to drive to according to the GPS and what I will say once I arrive to meet different people. Not a lot of time to think of the empty apartment I will be returning to.
I have received 3 emails from the egyptian. That's all. He says he is really busy (I can only imagine) and that he is exhausted (again - jet lag.. sure.) He says he doesn't have a lot of time to write anything, that he is using his brother's computer and about to leave. He never closes with an "I miss you" or "I love you." That part hurts.
I don't know what I expected? Perhaps I thought he would suddenly to revert back to the darling I once knew when he was in Egypt.?Does he finally feel the freedom he so longed for? Is he just showered in attention from his mother and family? Does returning to Egypt give him the purpose he so longed for in America?
I will head home - to "our" home and just read a little. Eat soooo much less. Go to Zumba tomorrow. Just be.
What's on your mind today? Any thoughts hanging over you like a virus? Or are you happy and care free? Maybe today.. an email can change my mood.. only three little words would do it. ;-)
