i left my heart in salt lake city
Jared says that being away from his children feels like being disemboweled. I never really got it before. And while perhaps I still can't really know what it feels like to be away from a child I created, I have missed them in the past 48 hours so much more than I imagined. It is so strange to go from being with them all day, every day to not seeing them at all. And is strange to be with Jared, my best friend and favorite person in the whole world, and still be lonely.
It is so quiet. Depressingly quiet.
As with most things in life, I suppose we'll get used to it again. And of course there are all the advantages of life without children. But those don't seem all that great right now.
