Today marks two months since Beth and I got married.
People ask me how married life is. On a physical level, not much different from how it used to be. We still live apart, with her in Victoria and me in Seattle. We still only see each other on the weekends. That much is the same.
The difference is that I miss her more, I think. I’ve always been sad on Sunday nights, when we part. I have a long drive ahead and I know I’ll miss her.
Now, though, it’s much harder. I used to be able to shrug a little and just think “at least I’ll be in Seattle.”
It just isn’t that easy anymore. Being in Seattle, without Beth, just doesn’t cut it anymore. I feel an indescribable dissatisfaction with everything in this town.
I’d like to just be with her.
