Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety
I'm sitting in a hotel lobby in Washington D.C. typing this and desperately missing my little boy. I left for a business trip on Thursday morning and won't get back until Sunday afternoon. When I committed to this trip 5 months ago, it was one of those "Oh, that's 5 months away, I'll worry about it then." But here I am smack dab in the middle of the trip with a strong case of separation anxiety. I haven't been home sick since I was 6-years-old.
Luckily, I am with good company and we have been busy going in and out of seminars. Of course, we couldn't be in D.C. without stopping by the White House and giving a wave to F.L. Michelle (pictured below, if you look hard she's waving back from the window).

And it turns out I'm not the only one missing someone.
My editor has a daughter studying in Spain. On the news this morning they were discussing an American student missing in Madrid- while we know it is not her daughter, she is now sitting next to me trying to get in a Skype session.
My publisher is feeling guilty because his beloved dog, Sadie, hasn't left the the front door since he left.
We miss home! I guess it's a good problem to have.
