Robin's only been gone since Saturday. She won't be back for about 2 1/2 weeks. Yet I'm really stumbling around right now. Tonight I was sorting some laundry I'd done, and there were a couple of pair of Robin's underwear in the pile. I picked them up to put them in their drawer, and realized they were as close as I come these days to being with her. And I said to myself, "thank god for her underwear, or I'd really be freaking by now."
Since she isn't here, she's not creating any new dirty laundry for me. Eventually, I'll do a load that won't have any of her clothes in it. When that happens, will all my wife-based memories disappear?
