My husband, that is.
He left 5 days ago and went to Paris and Antwerp.
Soon he will be on a plane bound for Columbo, Sri Lanka.
Please do not get any ideas that this is in any way glamourous or fun. It is work and he hates it.
Sri Lanka is, however, a new country for him. I can't remember if it is number 40 or 41. He could also add Qatar and U.A.E, but when we count countries we believe you actually have to leave the airport. Well, I count Japan even though I never left Narita, but I spent 14 hours in that airport with two young children. I paid my dues there.
To get home he will take two planes and fly 21 hours. He will leave Sri Lanka at 3:15 AM his time and get home at 4:25 PM my time.
That is too far away from me and the boys. We miss him. We have been trying to fill our days. It doesn't help much.
