Finally got to talk with Amy again Thursday night. She's been housesitting (yes, still), and keeps her cel phone off most of the time, in order to avoid calls from work. But, we got to chat for about an hour and a half on Thursday, which was good, especially since she's going to be gone for just about two weeks. First she's going on that field exercise thing I've mentioned a few times, although it sounds like that's just a daytime thing, and she'll be home at night (yeah, I know. Sounds weird to me too...), but she'll probably be too exhausted to chat long, if at all those nights. Then, she's going to a church retreat in Santa Barbara (ironically, from her description, I think it's at the same monastery where I would rehearse with the Santa Barbara Boys Choir). So, she'll be incommunicado during that time as well. But, after that is done, the following weekend, (Sept. 6, 7, 8), she'll be free, and I'll be free. She might be on-call that weekend, but that just means she can't leave the area, and that there's a very small chance that she'll be paged and have to come in (the only case where she has to do that is if someone died on duty). So, it seems likely that I'll be driving up to spend the weekend with her then. And both her and my weekends look fairly free for the next month or so after that, so hopefully we'll be seeing each other more often than once a month, at least for a little while. This would be a good thing. As I've stated earlier, it's hard to move a relationship forward with infrequent contact...While absence makes the heart grow fonder, that doesn't actually mean you're getting to know each other better in order to fall in love. That just means you're painting a picture of an ideal, since the person isn't around to show you all sides of themselves, the good and the bad.
