Feeling blue

I am so not looking forward to Saturday morning.....

I know I have been really bad at posting lately so I realize I haven't even mentioned what is going on.  But here is the scoop:

This semester DH has to make a short film for his "advanced" film project.  He has been working on this story for a long time, and will be filming it in Bangladesh at the end of March.  When we visited last summer, he was already working on some pre-production for this film.  But, of course, there is still a lot of business to take care of before the actual shooting.  So he is flying out on Saturday, and will return on April 9th.

Now of course I am glad he is going now rather than after our son is born.  But I'm still sad about all he will miss:  getting to see and feel him growing, talking to him, most likely missing out on at least 1 ultrasound.  And I have no idea how I'm going to handle this.  A few years ago he went to Europe for about a month, but 6 weeks is the longest we've been away from each other in the last 6 years.

On a positive note, my mom will be coming to stay with me and help me out during the last month of DH's absence.  I'm pretty excited about getting to show her around L.A. (as she has never been here) and also setting up the nursery together.  However, I'm not sure how she will keep herself occupied while I'm at work everyday.

More of my adventures to come later, and hopefully not of wallowing in misery.
